93rd Oscars: Reflections

Our contributors have watched the Oscars, looked at the winners, and have decided to share with you their thoughts of Sunday night’s ceremony and results. Before we get to our contributors’ thoughts, let’s look at how they did at predicting this year’s Oscars.

In a very tight race, Tripp came out on top with 17 correct predictions and 4 runner-up predictions, for a solid 21 of 23 rate on picking winners and runners-up. Wesley was second with 16 correct predictions and 6 runner-up predictions, for a total of 22 of 23. Thomas was in third with 16 correct and 4 runners-up, or 20 total. Peter comes in fourth with 13 winner predictions and 5 runners-up for a total of 18 ball park predictions.

Strangely, we had only one category that no one correctly predicted, namely Best Actress where none of us picked Frances McDormand to win or place. Every other category saw at least one of us pick the winner or the runner-up. Of all of these, Best Original Song was the least correctly predict with Wesley being the only one to pull the runner-up selection for “Fight for You” form Judas and the Black Messiah
