  1. TO MY OL' BUDDY JAKEEM, how come your never reply to me when I ask you something anymore? You ALWAYS used to I predict THE FAVOURITE will lead the pack overall w/most overall noms come Tuesday (10) But, that used to mean something about sweeping each time, no so much now, IF ROMA is not also up for "THE BIGGIE"-(they probably feel ok, due to it being certainly up for Best F. Film) BUT, if up for BP GOLD, it's a shoo-in to win BEST PRODUCTION, if not I've said for 3 months the nice GREEN BOOK is right up there alley. After se8ing it I kinda' also thought-(though still early) Viggo on his 3rd shot may go all the way & win BEST ACTOR,not know though as a couple critics said & fellow pundits Hollywood is jumping to vote him a leading actor. Plus, the wgt gain, which they always respect (SURE WANT YOUR INPUT FROM YOUR GUT BUDDY???) & GO -(no race) OVER TO MY FANIAL & SOME (REVISED) FINAL PREDIX OF THE NOMS ON TUESDAY??? Respect your opinion, LawrenceA & TopBilled the most (TRIVIA: all-time OSCAR finest pundit: Gene Siskel-(l946-99) even over the far more fast partner on air Roger Ebert-(l942-2013) The recently late *Oscar winning scripter *William Goldman-(l931-2018) & also the sadly also already gone GMA critic & pundit: Joel Siegel & you guessed it, he also went away prematurely of brain cancer, same as Gene Joel was kind enough to correspond via snail mail around ';88 with me. (FINAL NOTE: the buddies I cited above, PLEASE RUN & CHECK OUT MY PREOJECTIONS-(not to be confused with over a week ago-(DEETE THOSE) BUT, THESE ARE MY FINAL 2018 OSCAR NOMINEE PREDIX-(& of course wish just 5 of you reading this would join-in for a change!

  3. Betcha' GREEN BOOK BALE & CLOSE also take home the Oscar
  4. Kakeem, did you also watch these
  5. Though won't be a contender saw *Clint's THE MULE (strong ***-out of four stars) a nice laid back effort, but no heavyweight i.e. *UNFORGIVEN, *MDB, LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA or JOSEY WALES but good for his fans
  6. JAKEEM, have you been able to check out any of the Oscar frontrunners?
  7. (NOTE: Think tcm got it wrong above, I personally have not seen ROMA yet?)
  8. Though it's a lock to take home Best Director-(Curan), F. Film & Cinematography It's of course all subjective
