Pencils down! As of this moment, voting for the Academy Awards has ended. Oscar ballots are due, voters have made their selections, and all that’s left is the counting. Sunday night brings the Oscars in all of their glory (or whatever this telecast is lining up to be), but that doesn’t mean that the season is over. In fact, this is the time when pundits like myself pull their hair out the most. Trying to finalize Academy Award predictions with no new information may seem simple, but when you usually are always awaiting the next tidbit, this is a whole other ball of wax. Mostly, just take a breath and gird yourself for the big day.
The rest of the schedule for us here at Awards Radar? Well, tonight we record the final predictions episode of the podcast (though mine are subject to change), followed by a piece tomorrow on where we stand now that voting is closed. The pod drops on Thursday, followed by my final predictions piece on Friday. Then, we’ll put up a Community post this weekend, but other than that, it’s full steam ahead to the Academy Awards!
So, sit tight and look out for the coverage we have planned. There’s plenty to come, but of course, now we’re just playing a waiting game. Of course, feel free to chime in with your various thoughts and feelings, but other than that, just enjoy the very last bits of the ride…
Stay tuned for more Academy Award coverage all week, leading up to the Oscars on Sunday night!
