2016 Oscar Predictions: The 100% Correct Picks

February 20, 2016

Hello all. Mark here.

The most important weekend of the year is coming up (not really) and I wanted to throw my predictions into the ring. As always, the Academy Award nominations have annoyed many because they’ve excluded a lot of solid performances and ignored the mass populace. However, the show must go on and I once again wanted to prove my prowess at picking the majority of the categories correctly (thank you Gold Derby).

Without further ado here are my predictions!

Should win: Mad Max: Fury Road
