2017 Oscar Predictions: October Edition

You know, I’ve been blogging for six years now. When I started, I was 14 years old. Now I’m 20, and I’m starting my first job. In my spare time, I’m also working on a personal project. What I’m trying to say is, I might not have a ton of time for blogging. But I really will try to make it work.

With that said, we are entering the month of October. Awards Season is almost upon us, and I couldn’t be happier.
