Oscars 2015

Tonight is the big night. The end of the movie award season with the big one, the Academy Awards. After weeks of smaller awards, with people predicting who will win the golden statue, it’s time for my prediction. The films and individuals I believe will win will be in green. When the show is at last over, I will then put up the winners to see how I have done.

Will it be Boyhood’s night? Or will Birdman swoop in for the top prize? Or maybe American Sniper will sneak in and surprise everyone. Whatever happens, you will get all the answers LIVE as it happens, so check back to see who won and who went home with the long face.
