Chasing the Gold: InSession Film’s Oscar Ballot

Chasing the Gold: InSession Film’s Oscar Ballot

The writers of InSession Film have individually submitted their ballot for what they would vote for in this year’s Academy Awards, and the results are in. These are not our predictions, simply what we as a group would like to see win on Sunday night. We have left off the Shorts category, and are simply voting for the 20 other categories. The Best Picture category was decided through a preferential ballot, while the other categories were decided by the top vote. Scroll down to see the full results.
