Oscars 2015: FINAL Predictions


Daniel: Here they are! My final predictions. I’ve been a certified Oscar junkie for five or six years now, and those years were fairly easy to predict. Best Picture was pretty much sown up before the award show even began. Last year I correctly predicted 22 out of 24 categories. That’s a lot, if I do say so myself. This year, however, I expect different results. The 87th Academy Awards have been a really tough to predict, and that’s super exciting for movies! Take a look at our guesses, and let’s see how we do!

Tyler: This has been an excellent year for films, with some categories clearly locked, while most are wide open. I haven’t kept track of how many predictions I’ve gotten right, but I do OK. Here are our choices; see how we match up!

Don’t forget to fill out your own predictions and guess along with us on Sunday, Feb. 22nd!
