2018 Oscar Predictions - Our Picks to Win

 2018 Best Picture Nominees

The Day is finally upon us. The one day out the year that the sun will cut through the choking smog and blinding haze to finally shine its golden rays on Hollywood as the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences tells us how little we know about movies with its 90th Annual Academy Awards presentation this Sunday evening.

So, no more predicting. No more tracking. No more pontificating. It is time to put up or shut up, so that's exactly what we've done with our 2018 Oscar predictions which you can see below.

Though we've indicated our predictions in bold, we know the Academy doesn't always get it right, so we've included our hopeful winners in each category as well.


*Predicted winners in bold

 

The Shape of WaterBest Motion Picture

We want to win: The Shape of Water

One of the tightest Best Picture races in quite some time. Don't be surprised if Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri gets the win. Get Out could be a benefactor to a split vote between The Shape of Water and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and we would be happy with that.
