2020 Oscar Predictions

That time of the year where Awards Season starts picking up into full swing. Many film festivals are revving up some of these high profile contenders. Note: I have not seen most of these films yet, these are just my best guesses. I will periodically update this when I see more of these films, or when I feel like there has been a major shift. If you want to hear my thoughts weekly, you can find me and @rickyvalero_ on the “Music City Drive-In” Podcast wherever podcasts are being played.
