Hello fellow film lovers, the moment has arrived! Oscars 2018 are upon us and it is time for me to delve into the nominations and list my picks!
Jimmy Kimmel is back as host this year. He did a good job last year, but it’s tough to compare him to Crystal or Hope.

It was not that great of a movie. Same with “Straight Outta Compton”. It was your standard bio-pic. Nothing special other than the subject matter. That being said, there absolutely is some MAJOR Oscar bait in the mix this year. Here is the list. I will revisit this shortly before the awards at the end of February with my choices.
