One of my favorite days of the year! The day Oscar Nominations are announced. And like any film nerd I like to make my own predictions. I usually have this tradition that every year, before the Academy Awards, I watch every movie nominated. It’s a crazy feat and I think only one year I made it through every single movie…but this year is much, much different. Because sadly…I haven’t seen one on the list. Not one! I am totally okay with this because I have been so occupied with a lot of other things. So I am making my predictions based off of what I desire to see happen. Even though I’ve been hearing things, etc…there are some performances I think that are worthy of winning. Okay, here goes.
