Whether you think of the Academy Awards as irrelevant or increasingly irrelevant, there will always be a surface-level fun to the proceedings. The gold is shiny, and beneath it there are some truly outstanding films gripping the edge of the spotlight.
Like we’ve done every year, we’ve made some predictions (using tea leaves, pig entrails and, later, Pepto Bismol) about which of those outstanding films will find the spotlight’s center.
Here are those shots in the dark, which will most likely be 110% accurate, collected in one place for your convenience.
See you tonight.
