Fifth about The Seventh

Casting a Ballot – 2015 Oscars

88th OscarsIt all comes down to this.

As I have been doing with a lot of different guilds (to say the least, and here are a few more) over the last months, I’m casting a fictional ballot for the 88th Academy Awards. The full list of nominees can be seen here.

This is not the list of who I believe will win each category (I’ll post that one in a few days), but who I believe should win (some of which can be traced back to my Top 10 films of 2015).

Without further ado!
