I'm Baaaaack! - March 15, 2021

UPDATE: The Oscar nominations have been announced! We definitely had some surprises in there (I'm looking at you Pinocchio), but for the most part I did pretty well with my predictions! I correctly predicted 91 of the 118 nominees for an accuracy of 77.1%. Nominees in bold are the correctly predicted nominees.


I really suck at this whole "running a website" thing and I need to get better. Please, someone, ANYONE - hold me accountable! I need to do better at this. I promise to do better! A lot has happened since my last post forever ago in January 2019. I mean, COVID-19 is a thing we're all dealing with now. COVID-19 has temporarily messed with my career, but I'm holding out hope that I'll get my career back on track soon after most Americans are vaccinated. I also got married and had an amazing honeymoon at Disney's Aulani Resort in Hawai'i! That was pretty cool. Shoutout to my amazing wife, Amanda Levine! That being said, I enjoy writing on this website, so it's time to get back on track with reviews, predictions, ranked lists, etc. and it starts...NOW!


Let's talk some Oscars. Today is March 15, 2021 - also known as Oscar Nominee Announcement Day! However, it's 1:30AM right now, so the announcements haven't been made yet and I'm here to make some last minute predictions before the announcements are made in ... *checks watch* ... 7 HOURS!

I'm only predicting 8 Best Picture nominees; however, we could see 9 or 10 nominees thanks to "the algorithm" that decides how many nominees this category has each year. If there's a 9th nominee, I'm predicting Judas and the Black Messiah. If there's a 10th nominee, I'm predicting Sound of Metal.


Alright, everyone. It's time to get some sleep so I can watch Nick Jonas announce the official nominees in about 6-7 hours. I can't wait to see how wrong my predictions are!
