2018 Oscar Nominations Predictions: The Beginning

As is our tradition, May begins our first predictive look at the year’s Oscar hopefuls. A lot of factors will play into how well our guesses hold up. Expect many of them to fall by the wayside as the year progresses and new contenders to rise into their places.

It’s a bit surprising that May is already upon us, but it’s time to make our first long-shot predictions for the year. While we have a small bit of certainty about our first predictions of the year, there are far too many ifs, ands, and buts to consider, so these will most certainly change by our next post.

Over the coming months, we’ll be adding more predictions in more categories. Stay tuned.
