Oscar Nomination Predictions - 2017

January 23, 2017

 

 

 

With the 2017 Oscar Predictions being announced tomorrow by Oscar winners Brie Larson and Jennifer Hudson among others, there isn't a more perfect time for me to reveal who I believe will receive nods this year from the Academy.

 

Now, in order to make my predictions as accurate as possible, I did my research on the popularity of the most buzzed about Oscar-bait films this year and I also looked into trends that occurred earlier on this season. Although some of my predictions may not blend perfectly with what most critics believe will be recognized this year, I strongly believe that my choices are still fairly spot on.

 

Without further adieu, I present to you my official picks for the 2017 Oscars nominees!
