2020 Oscar Nominee Predictions

Hi all! I just wanted to throw up some Oscar nominee predictions prior to Monday’s official announcement. I listed who I thought might get in, plus an alternative that could take one of those spots.

Additionally, I did not predict a chunk of the craft categories, because I in no way feel qualified enough to predict some of those categories.

Anyways, enjoy and thanks for reading!

(NOTE: Most categories are organized alphabetically. Best Picture is organized in terms of likelihood to get nominated, because of the criteria that allows UP TO 10 nominees.)
