2015 oscar picks


I’m super late but I had my predictions written out but not posted anywhere. I did chat about them on this episode of the indoob podcast, and I also realized I made up a couple nominations! Oops, sorry. Unless I copy/pasted a list that has an error. While I know many of my blerd folk might be boycotting the show tomorrow due to the lack of diversity this year, I’ll still be watching and live-tweeting with extra snark. I’ve also been slacking this year and I’ve only seen “Selma”, “Gone Girl” and half of “The Grand Budapest Hotel”. So follow me Sunday night on Twitter @indoob. In the meantime, let’s see how well I do:
