82nd Annual Academy Award Predictions

On Sunday 7th March, some of the biggest names in the film industry will gather for the 82nd Annual Academy Awards, known as The Oscars’. Arguably, the biggest event in the awards circuit, The Oscars can make or break a reputation and provide a nice boost to DVD sales. Since May 16, 1929 they have been developing into the best indicator of an internationally recognised performance of excellence, and it comes with the highest prestige.

Around 6,000 members of ‘The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ (AMPAS) will vote from the chosen nominees to decide the best in each category to receive 24 different awards.

We here at Watchout Film want to try our hands at predicting who will win the top awards at the ceremony, and who we wish would win ourselves. So here’s our best guesswork of the top award categories:

  1. Although, I like the actual blog post, I find the whole structure of the post an eye sore. I don’t mean that to be offensive either, I just think it wasn’t really set out in the neatest, most tidy fashion to make it easy to follow.

    Good post though.

    • Tried to edit it a bit more, I didnt have much time to make a table etc because I wanted to get it up and have a discussion going ASAP, but I do appreciate the constructive criticism.

      You got any predictions K’von?
