The glitz and glam of Awards season may be behind us but that won’t stop us from reminiscing! From the Oscars’ red carpet to the Vanity Fair after party transformations, and all the behind-the-scenes snaps, we loved every moment of the Academy Awards.
This year, our team took on the challenge of predicting the winners in the top Oscar categories.
There were 8 contenders and here are how some of the results panned out!
Academy Award for Lead Actor: Gary Oldman 8/8
Academy Award for Lead Actress: Frances McDormand 7/8
Academy Award for Supporting Actor: Sam Rockwell 5/8
Academy Award for Supporting Actress: Allison Janney 6/8
Academy Award for Director: Guillermo del Toro 7/8
Academy Award for Animated Feature: Coco 6/8
Things got a bit trickier with most of our team voting for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri to walk away with Best Picture! But three staff members hit the nail on the head with The Shape of Water – good spot, Sarah Clohessy, Eoin Wrixon, and Ciara O’Hara!
Once the votes were tallied, there was a clear movie genius amongst us … Ciara’s cleansweep was worthy of a little gold award of her own!
And even though she didn’t walk away with an Oscar, we were thrilled to see Ireland’s very own Saoirse Ronan take to the red carpet for her nomination for the wonderful Lady Bird.
Last year produced some of the best cinema we’ve seen and there are already a few front runners lined up to be released in 2018 … We recommend following our Facebook or Twitter to stay up to date!
