Predict the 2017 Oscar Winners...
« on: February 19, 2017, 05:00:01 PM »
I know some of us don't love the Oscars, but we all love games!

Submit your entry for the winners by start of Oscars on Sunday. One point for every right answer. I'll find something dumb for the winner to have... so there are PRIZES!

I'm surprised how often Toni Erdmann appears here. Doesn't strike me as an Oscars pick, even without the political circumstances pushing The Salesman.

Again I disagree. I don't think they like to be told what they like in that category. Best Documentary is normally what gets that persuasion.

Isn't Toni Erdmann the "doing what we're told" pick though ? It's by far the most critically acclaimed of these.
