The 91st Academy Awards witnessed laughs, tears, excitement, and surprises on Feb. 24. Usually, one can predict the outcomes of who will be victorious for each category, yet the Academy’s known to spice things up in unexpected ways.

Were my predictions correct, or were they miles apart from what actually happened?

 

My projection for Best Supporting Actress: Regina King–“If Beale Street Could Talk”

My personal pick: Rachel Weisz or Emma Stone–“The Favourite”

Winner: Regina King

 

My projection for Best Supporting Actor: Mahershala Ali–“Green Book”

My personal pick: Robert E. Grant–“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”

Winner: Mahershala Ali

 

My projection for Best Leading Actor: Christian Bale–“Vice”

My personal pick: Bradley Cooper–“A Star Is Born”

Winner: Rami Malek–“Bohemian Rhapsody”

 

 

My projection for Best Leading Actress: Glenn Close–“The Wife”

My personal pick: Olivia Coleman/Glenn Close

Winner: Olivia Coleman–“The Favourite”

I’m very torn about this one. Hype was aimed towards Glenn Close’s emotional performance in “The Wife,”  yet Coleman edged her out with a memorable performance on her part…

If only ties were typical.

 

 

My projection for Best Picture: Roma”

My personal pick: “The Favourite”

Winner: “Green Book”

Oscar controversy at its finest: this win immediately shocked viewers around the world. “Green Book” was generally respected, but not to the same extent as contender “Roma” or even “A Star Is Born.”

At least “Bohemian Rhapsody” didn’t take home the the prize.

 

The door of 2018’s immense film achievements can finally be closed. Now, it’s time to focus on what 2019 has in store for cinema!
