The Academy awards is undoubtedly one of the most-awaited film award ceremonies of the year. Recently, a list of nominees was released on the official Twitter handle of the Academy Awards, which featured names like Joaquin Phoenix, Renne Zellweger, Laura Dern and Brad Pitt. Since the list was put up online, fans have been storming the internet with their opinions and theories, on who will be taking the Academy award home this year.
Putting fans anticipation to rest, the Academy Award officials hosted a fun-filled prediction game on Twitter, in which fans had to predict the winners in different categories. A tweet was shared by the Academy Award officials, declaring the results of the game, which has now been deleted. Here are the details.
In the now-deleted tweet, the Academy of Motion Arts and Sciences posted a picture of who they predict might win this year. The now-deleted tweet featured the names of actors like Joaquin Phoenix and Renee Zellwegger, as they might win the award in the Best Actor and Best Actress category. Furthermore, the picture titled 'My Oscar Predictions' picked the Korean thriller, Parasite for the Best Picture award. However, the tweet was later deleted by the officials of Academy Awards, stating that many fans had got the predictions right and hence requested them to wait for the official announcements on February 10, 2020.
