FINAL 92nd Academy Awards Predictions

Image result for academy awards best picture 2020

The 92nd Academy Awards are in a couple of hours (from 1am GMT, 10/02/20), and after a lot of deliberation these are my final predictions for this year’s ceremony. I will personally be rooting for 1917 to win Best Picture, not only because it’s my  favourite film of the year, but so I can finally get Best Picture right after getting it wrong for a few years in a row. Some categories were tough to call and very competitive, others seemingly pretty straight forward, but it will certainly be interesting to find out what the Academy chooses.
