Nick's Fearless (Not Really) Oscar Predictions

Posted by Nick Spake on February 23, 2019 at 8:10 PM

This year's Oscar race can basically be summed up in a verse from a classic Queen song:


"It's been no bed of roses, no pleasure cruise, I consider it a challenge before the whole human race and I ain't gonna lose."
