Oscar Predictions: Labor Day Guess

*It’s almost that time of year again. Awards season! Now that the Emmys have been handed out, the next major awards cycle is going to begin. The last 4 months of the year are when the Oscar game really heats up. All of the big contenders are going to start emerging, and the critical darlings from the beginning of the year are really going to have to put up a big fight to stay in the race. It’s still early, but these are my Labor Day guesses for the Oscars this year.*
