With the last Oscars, one user made a thread to broadcast their outlandish claims about the Oscar race. I cannot remember who it was, but I do remember that it was absolutely hilarious to read.
To that end, I thought I’d set up the thread for people to post their no holds barred statements about this upcoming Oscar season. Who will and who won’t make it in shockingly. Maybe don’t go as personal and call everyone else idiots for disagreeing with you, as the user did last year.September 6, 2015 at 2:23 pm #194036
