oscar2020

A fun tradition I’ve done the last few years on my blog is filling out a personal ballot of what I would nominate if I was voting for this year’s Academy Awards. These are not predictions, as my taste is unlikely to line up completely with the Oscars (although there may be some overlap), but are rather what I’d like to see get nominated in some of the major categories.
