The 87th Annual Academy Awards- Oscar Picks


Like them or hate them, the Academy Awards is one of the biggest times of the year for film fans, and stars alike.  For weeks now we’ve been speculating who is going to win and take home the trophies.  A few of the awards are going to be close (Best Picture, and Best Director for sure).  Still, if any of you are filling out their Oscar ballots and are looking for extra advice I hopefully won’t steer you wrong here.  I went 21 for 24 last year, I doubt I’ll do that good again but let’s give it a shot!
