It’s Time For Mike to Predict Who Will Win This Year’s Oscars!
The 94th Academy Awards are this weekend, which means it's time to make your bets now. While a lot of the movies I love this year weren't nominated (Pig, Red Rocket, The Last Duel, The Matrix Resurrections) and the ones that were nominated probably don't have much of a shot of winning (Drive My Car), there's still a strong list of contenders vying for Oscar gold this weekend.
But, only one of them can win! And this awards season has been thrown into chaos, with no clear frontrunner in the Best Picture race. But here's how I think it's going to go down, in every single category at the Oscars this year (except for the incredibly dumb, new "Oscars Fan Favorite" award, which isn't a real award and shouldn't exist).
