The Vern predicts the Oscar Nominees…or so he thinks

oscars-2016-predictionsSo over on the site Film Actually Shane Slater has asked other writers to jot down their picks for the Academy Awards.  I’ll be honest with you.

About The Vern

I love movies and I enjoy writing about them too. They both go pretty much hand in hand with each other and it's fun to discover new classics. I co host the podcast The Film Pasture and As You Watch. While also contributing reviews and articles to other great sites when I can.

    Interesting picks. I’d have the Ex Machina soundtrack in there above Star Wars but other than that, great list.
