What a spectacular and strangely competitive awards season 2018 has been. From a disastrous hosting fiasco with Kevin Hart and the Oscars to a shocking upset at the Golden Globes from Bohemian Rhapsody over favorite A Star Is Born, surprises seem to be at every turn. And in similar fashion, we expect this Tuesday’s Oscars nominations announcement to similarly have some devastating tricks up its sleeves, making predicting the forsaken list of nominees even more difficult to predict. But regardless, below are my personal predictions for the films that will be nominated and out of those films, which is currently the frontrunner for the coveted win.
