The 92nd Academy Awards came to close and had plenty of obvious notes, self-aggrandizing speeches, some surprises, but it was largely hostless. I gave my predictions on the Oscars on who would win for Best Animated Film Feature, Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Director, and Best Picture on StudioJake. I am man enough to admit I had some wrong predictions.
Best Animated Film Feature, winner: Toy Story 4. The real winner is actually Klaus.
*This is one I actually called. I predicted it would be the dark horse winner since Hollywood loves Pixar films.
Best Director, winner: Bong Joon-ho, for Parasite. Clint Eastwood is the true winner for Richard Jewell, but out of them, I think it should be Todd Philips for Joker.
*I was totally off for this one. I thought Martin Scorsese would win and Sam Mendes was my dark horse choice. I was WAY off. To hear the rest of my predictions, you will have to watch StudioJake.
Best Actor, winner: Joaquin Phoenix for Joker. Way to go. Well deserved. His performance was well done.
Best Actress, winner: Renée Zellweger for Judy. What? Scarlett Johansson should have won for Jojo Rabbit (not Marriage Story.)
Best Picture, winner: Parasite. This was surprising. I did not think it would win. Personally, Avengers: Endgame and Richard Jewell should have won, but they were snubbed. Out of the original list, Joker was clearly the winner.
