Final Oscar Predictions 2021: Who Will Win?

With the biggest night in Hollywood finally coming this weekend, now's the right time to give my final predictions of who and what will win on Oscar night!

We are finally here, and it’s about time. This might’ve been the longest awards season ever since we had to deal with a pandemic putting a halt to films meant to come out last year and the closing of movie theaters. But months later, we are close to watch the 93rd Academy Awards this Sunday, April 25! Who knows what will be in store with how the ceremony will play out, but 2020/early 2021 still gave us some great movies that deserve their place in their respective nominations.

Now seems like the right time to see what I think will win on Oscar night. Choosing my predictions wasn’t too hard since I assumed most of what I picked was a lock. Though what I believe will be the toughest categories to pick a winner in would be Best Actress, Editing, and Adapted Screenplay because we haven’t seen a frontrunner. And unlike the previous years, no reasonings for my choice won’t be here; just my choices front and center. Will there be any upsets? Will Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom win the most awards? Or will this be the time people will stop saying Nomadland is boring?

Take a look at my predictable and see for yourselves!
