    Here’s a to the Oscar nomination surprises and wins that you actually did call. This year, I called a few surprise nominations; the one I’m most proud of is calling Jojo Rabbit for Editing. One surprise nomination I’ll always be proud of is predicting Mel Gibson’s Directing nomination for Hacksaw Ridge. What are yours?

    Not exactly calling it but I had a huge gut feeling that JLo wouldn’t make it since October but I never listened to it even after she got snubbed at BAFTA because when I suggest it on other sites I got a lot of drags so I wasn’t confident in pulling that off ugh.

    I should’ve listened to my gut.

    I mean… do the big parasite wins count?

    the jlo snub has been brewing since the minute her hype started, I just couldn’t find someone convincing enough to replace her, I liked bates’ performance enough to be happy for her nomination but not so much that I’d predict her to get passion votes, and scarjo did nothing for me in jojo

    Mila Kunis for Black Swan for Supporting Actress. I knew that she would not get nominated because she did not deserve it.

    Buster scruggs getting in for original song. Haha

    And I already had Malek as my winner even before the Globes.

    I just love movies. And awards.

    Remember when anyone who wasn’t predicting Bradley Cooper was ridiculous and out of their mind?

    Also when I refer to snubs and surprises, at least in terms of wins I’m referring to genuine upsets. Stuff like Parasite for Best Picture and Casey Affleck for Best Actor were fairly close calls.

    And as for surprise nominations, how many of you called Marina de Tavira for Roma, or Kathy Bates for Richard Jewell, or Tom Hardy for The Revenant, etc?

    I predicted Ana Paquin’s & James Coburn wins correctly (all those years ago).

    Also, Catherine Deneuve’s nominated for Indochine.

    Let’s talk more about surprises from decades ago. That’ll be interesting.

    I refused to predict Jlo until she showed up on SAG noms but then knew she was done after BAFTA. I had a feeling her diva antics and general absence of respect for her material (music and movies) would bite her in the ass. You can’t erase decades of critically panned ventures with one performance that is nowhere near Oscar bait

    I knew Apollo 11 was going to be snubbed because of Won’t You Be My Neighbor last year, but I still predicted it because I had no idea what else would be nominated.

    Also knew that 1917 wasn’t getting an Editing nom. The fact that so many people were predicting it after Birdman was foolish.

    And of course I called the Parasite Best Picture win, although that wasn’t a huge surprise since Parasite was a solid 1nd and had a lot going for it.
