The Truth About Music

88th Annual Academy Awards Winners

The 88th Annual Academy Awards are upon us and I thought I would take a moment to recognize how truly awesome the Oscars are. With only 24 awards given out all night, it is among the toughest awards for a performer to add to his or her mantle. Guys like Alejandro G. Iñárritu are trying to add a 2nd in the same number of years, something that hasn’t been done since the ’50s. Others, like 87 year old Ennio Morricone and 41 year old Leonardo DiCaprio, are just trying to win their first! Both of those are likely to happen by the way. Here are my picks for the 88th Academy Awards:

(Please note, I’ve been using this system for almost a decade now. Will Win is who I believe will win. Should Win is my personal pick. Dark Horse is someone that you should pay attention to and can’t be all that surprised if they pull the upset. Winners are bolded below)
