2020 Oscar Nominations Predictions!

What do I believe are the best choices upon this award season? Check out my personal 2020 Oscar nomination predictions.

What’s up, my people! We are very close to hearing the nominations for the 92th Academy Awards. Before the announcement Monday morning, January 13, which means I have to set my alarm to watch them live, it would be the best plan to give my predictions on what will get nominated in every category (the shorts were just guesses based on who was on the shortlists). This was a yearly process to get through, and I made a lot of changes based on the buzz surrounding certain potential nominees.

It seems likely that Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will get the most nominations.  I will also name some that could sneak in there without going in-depth with my reasonings for my picks. When the nominations come out, I will run down my opinions and will most likely do a top five snubs, because we all know not everything we like gets in. Was it difficult leaving out great performances? Yes. Check out my predictions for the upcoming Oscar nominations.
