Happy Academy Awards! The Academy Awards are my Super Bowl. This is it. And despite all the controversy that came along with the 2016 edition of the Oscars, I still want to congratulate every single nominee. A nomination is an honor and no small feat. So, to all the first-time nominees and to the nominees enjoying another nomination, I salute you.

Here are some of my predictions. I’m usually excellent with my predictions-with the exception of the 2015 ceremony where I bombed in certain key categories LOL, but I plan on redeeming myself today! From left to right according to the above picture:

Best Picture: The Revenant

Best Director: Alejandro González Iñárritu (He also won last year for Birdman)

Best Actor: Leonardo DiCaprio for The Revenant

Best Actress: Brie Larson for Room

Best Original Screenplay: Spotlight

Best Adapted Screenplay: The Big Short

Best Documentary Feature: Amy

Best Editing: Hank Corwin for The Big Short

Best Cinematography: Emmanuel Lubezki for The Revenant (This will be his third win in a row. He previously won in 2014 for Gravity and 2015 for Birdman)
