Final Oscar Predictions: Short Season Brings Some Intrigue, Little Surprise

Final Oscar Predictions: Short Season Brings Some Intrigue, Little Surprise

It’s a strange year for the Academy Awards in the 2019-2020 season. The first year ever with four films obtaining double digit nominations and the shortest Oscar season in recent memory have led to both many predictable results and a shocking amount of unpredictable categories as well. While there may not be as much intrigue at the top of the race, there are certainly many races going down to the wire below the line. The rest of this article will reveal what my predictions are for Oscar outcomes, along with what could win and should win. For the sake of completeness and lack of viewing, the shorts will be left out. Also, due to a lack of documentary viewing, there will not be a should win for that section. Let’s dive in:
