Oscars 2018 predictions

The 2018 Oscars are Sunday night at 8 p.m. EST, and I still can’t confidently predict the Best Picture winner. But I’ll do my best! Remember, these aren’t who I necessarily want to win but who I believe will be chosen.

Each category will have the winner listed following the nominees. May the best film win (just not you, Darkest Hour and Three Billboard Outside Ebbing, Missouri).
