    No one responded to my Luigi’s Mansion 3 post. Oh well.

    I’m guessing that we’ll get 2 Nintendo nominees this year for GOTY, since they pretty much carried 2019 on their shoulders with their late-year lineup. My predictions are Super Smash Bros Ultimate, which is still super relevant thanks to DLC and will probably get another character reveal at the ceremony, and Super Mario Maker 2, since the first Mario Maker was nominated and there’s been a Mario nominee every 2 years since 2013.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best Picture: Parasite, Jojo Rabbit, Joker, Ford v Ferrari
    Best Director: Bong-Joon Ho, Taika Waititi, Todd Phillips
    Best Actor: Joaquin Phoenix, Robert Pattinson, Roman Griffin Davis, Christian Bale
    Best Actress: Lupita Nyong'o
    Best Supporting Actor: Willem Dafoe, Song Kang-Ho, Sam Rockwell, Al Pacino
    Best Supporting Actress: Thomasin McKensie, Cho Yeo-Jeong
    Best Adapted Screenplay: Jojo Rabbit, Joker
    Best Original Screenplay: Parasite, Ford v Ferrari

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>That awkward moment when you realize the nominees were announced already and you didn’t know. But seriously, no Mario Maker 2 for GOTY? I’m pretty shocked tbh. At least Smash Ultimate made it in.</p>
    Tbh this year’s lineup of games was so underwhelming that I’m not really rooting for any of these games except for Smash Ultimate and Kingdom Hearts 3 for score/RPG.
