DVO Podcast: 2018 Oscar Predictions.

We’re all set to pick our favorite Academy Award nominations in a year that is wide open.

In our annual tradition, we put our heads together to make our picks for the 90th Academy Awards.  This year is an interesting mix of slam dunks and close calls, and the new voters at the Academy could swing many of these categories in any direction.  While The Shape of Water looks like an unstoppable awards winning machine, we make a case for some of the lesser known films that have a real shot at taking home an Oscar next Sunday.

Below you can check out our picks and listen to our predictions.  Next week, join us for our 4th live blog and live stream of the 90th Academy Awards.  You can find that stream on DeluxeVideoOnline.org, on Spreaker, and linked from our Facebook page.  Enjoy!
