The Oscar predictions list I posted immediately after nominations looks way silly now, and I decline to state my confidence in it. But that’s okay, because nobody actually voted on the movies til after that post, and as my mood as shifted, so did the voters’.
Pursuant to that post, I failed in my mission to watch all the nominated movies. The “should win/will win” game is beyond my means, this year.
