Academy Awards 2020 Predictions: Who Will Win and Who Should Win

As the 92nd annual Academy Awards are just a few hours away, we are here to discuss who we think will win and who should win. I think everybody will probably agree that this is mostly a predictable year and with most of the award shows going in the same direction, The Academy is almost likely to follow them as well. But 2019 was a great year for movies nonetheless and with the biggest night of Hollywood almost upon us, let’s just jump right into it.
