Chasing the Gold: Final 2021 Oscar Predictions

Chasing the Gold: Final 2021 Oscar Predictions

In one of the most chaotic Oscar races of all time, the nominations on Monday morning will bring relief to a year still filled with many unanswered questions. While my predictions below are final, I still don’t know where this race is going to go and there could be more chaos coming. It would only be fitting given the 2020-2021 calendar year, but I expect the Academy to calm everyone down and show the world what they think are the best of the best with their nominations. Here is what I think they will look like come Oscar nomination morning.
