Bede’s 2015 Oscar Predictions

oscars

I can’t believe that time of the year is almost over, in two days the Oscars will finally be announced. I have to say that it has been a very interesting race this year. While the acting are pretty easy to figure out, I must admit that I still no idea who is going the other categories. This would have to be the tightest Oscar race I have seen in the last couple of years for these awards. Seriously, pretty much any of the nominees in any of the categories could easily win. So, I decided to do a write-up are who I predict will win at this year’s Oscars. It won’t be easy, but somebody has to do it. Enjoy!
