LumRanmaYasha and VLordGTZ convene to give their predictions on this year’s Oscars!…

…Say what? You’re telling me that the awards are already over? We already found out what won everything? Darn it!



Yeah, we meant to get this podcast out before the Oscars, but some mishaps prevented us from getting it edited in time. Even so, we think it’ll still be fun to hear what we wanted to win and thought would win, and see if any of our predictions actually happened. We also devoted a lot of time to some often overlooked awards, particularly the short film categories. So join us to celebrate some of the best movies of 2017 as we discuss the nominations for the 90th Academy Awards!
