Filling out an Oscar ballot can be maddening: The “should wins” are seldom the “will wins.” We know deep down that the acting performances and films that we treasure the most shouldn’t get a check mark next to them (sorry, Laurie Metcalf) and resign ourselves to selecting the odds-on favorites (congrats, Allison Janney!) With that in mind, here are the Ringer staff’s official predictions for the 2018 Academy Awards. Can the fish sex movie really win Best Picture? Do Dunkirk’s sound mixing and editing reign supreme? Will Lady Bird be honored with any statuettes at all? Let’s go!
