Oscar Preview and Predictions!


Emma Coons, Oscar Fanatic

As I am sure you have all been waiting for since my GLORIOUS predictions last year, this article will contain my 2019 Oscars predictions, a preview of the show, and my overall excitement for Sunday. First of all, as you have probably heard by now, this year’s Academy Awards will have no designated host. We know several celebrities will be presenting awards, and Adam Lambert along with Queen will open the show. This past year has been an odd one for film, with Bohemian Rhapsody winning Best Drama at the Golden Globes, even with its only 62% Rotten Tomatoes rating. With these odd prospects, coming up with predictions has been a challenge, but a challenge I will accept. I do want to insert, though, that as I am in no educated on these categories, I will not be picking predictions for the categories under Best Documentary or Best Shorts, and for a few I have provided backups. After some serious research, in the theater and online, here are my 2019 Academy Award Winner predictions:
