It’s been almost two weeks since the nominations for this year’s OSCARS were announced, and news outlets all over the world have been speculating and discussing the talent who are likely to walk away with the famous golden statuettes.

Each year I put my neck on the line by putting down who, in my opinion, will win an Oscar. This year I will be putting down a first and second choice, meaning that the winner could be either of them, but there are categories where there will be a clear favourite.
