There was a lot of controversy around the Academy Awards this year from the hosts all the way to the winners. So, the fact we didn‘t pick the best picture shouldn’t be a surprise as no one could guess that. Same with the best actress. And Truthfully, none of us really thought “Detainment” would win in the live action short, but with the Irish crew involved in our show, we had to vote for it as our choice.

To the question of how accurate our predictions were this year? Not very accurate. Out of 10 categories, we only managed 4 correct.
