And The Oscar Goes To...

It's time! I'll be in New Orleans during the show, but might be able to convince Jacob to call it an early night and watch back at the hotel. I love predicting the winners and I'm not usually too far off. I didn't enter any contests this year though. Bummer.

I haven't seen any of these... lol. I'm totally not an Oscars guru. But I do like watching and see what people say and how they look.
I want to see Lady Bird, The Post, and Molly's Game!!

I had to check the date you posted this because I wasn't sure if you guessed the winners or were reporting them from last night- you were on point! I didn't know there were Oscar contests but you totally would've rocked it this year! I watched Lady Bird, Get Out, and Three Billboards, but I still want to see The post, The Shape of Water, I, Tonya, Call Me By Your Name, and Molly's Game. Maybe I missed something or just didn't "get" it, but I don't understand the Lady Bird hype and was kind of disappointed in it. I loved Get Out though, and thought that and Three Billboards were really well done!
