2015 Academy Award Predictions: The Outcome

If you haven’t already read my predictions, you can check them out right here. Before you read on and check out the scoreboard, let me just say that things might get pretty ugly and I might look pretty clueless. But those could also just be rumors. Let’s see.

Wow…I was awful either way. I should be banned from making predictions for next years show but that isn’t going to happen. I’m already going to predict (yeah I’m already making another prediction) that I’m going to do much better next year; I can feel it! Anyway, comment below on how your predictions turned out or to just bash my awful predictions.
