Irresponsibly Early Oscars 2018 Predictions: Best Actor

None of these movies have been released (except for Get Out). Most of these movies don’t even have trailers released. But we’re talking about them anyway.

Hurrah, hearsay!

Irresponsibly Early Oscars 2018 Predictions: Best Actress

Key word: Irresponsibly. As in, I would tell you how many of the below movies I have seen, but you would click away to distance yourself from my poor journalism.

The 2018 Oscars are next March. That’s eight months or so. So…you wanna start guessing?

Irresponsibly Early Oscars 2018 Predictions: Best Picture

It’s Christmas in July! That’s right, it’s time to talk about the Oscars. Wait, I hear you begin to gripe, the 2017 Oscars were mere months ago! How could you possibly be predicting the 2018 Best Picture nominees already?

And you’re right. I can’t. I’ll probably delete all of these Irresponsibly Early Oscar prediction articles by next January once my findings have been proved astoundingly wrong.

Until then, let’s talk about movies that, for the most part, no one has seen yet and discuss them in ways that give them unwarranted hype and grossly premature acclaim.

Let’s get the elephant out of the way so we can talk about the mice.

An Immediate yet Hopefully Cogent Reaction to the Wildest Oscar Ending of All Time

Update: In a post-show interview, Emma Stone claimed to have been holding her Best Actress card “that whole time” during the Best Picture segment of the show. Additionally, there are reportedly always two sets of Oscar-winner announcement cards for every category at every show. So maybe this is a conspiracy…or that PA f***d up real bad.

Conspiracy theories are borne out of moments of indescribable confusion. And a new one was created tonight at the 89th Annual Academy Awards ceremony, where, for the briefest of moments, La La Land won Best Picture.

The event played out like this. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the great Bonnie & Clyde, Bonnie and Clyde themselves Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway took the stage to award the most coveted award in Hollywood cinema: The Best Picture Oscar. Beatty opened the card, went to the mic, then Continue reading An Immediate yet Hopefully Cogent Reaction to the Wildest Oscar Ending of All Time
