If We Picked the Oscars

If we were Academy voters, here’s a peek at what our 2019 ballots would look like (based on what was nominated). This isn’t what we think will win (so don’t base your Oscar pool picks on this list) but it’s what we personally would vote for in each nominated category. Enjoy the Oscars!
