In this awards season, there have been some clear winners (Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri) and some clear losers (The Greatest Showman), but I like to think of the Oscars as a clean slate. Even though the Golden Globes serves as a playoff game for the Super Bowl of awards shows, I like to choose my predictions based on merit, not based on the past winners of the Golden Globes and SAG awards.

Below, you’ll find my Oscar predictions, which will most likely be wrong, but I’m standing by them nonetheless.
