Robert’s Reviews: Oscar Predictions

Hello Clever People, and welcome to my predictions for the 89th annual Academy Awards! For many years, the Oscars have given out awards to the greatest films of the year, and have made their award show into the biggest film related event of the year. In the video, I discuss what I believe will win, as well as what I believe should. Enjoy! (Note: I put the times for when I discuss each topic in the description of the video, in case you want to listen to a certain category directly.)

    So GOTTA love this guy . . . the most articulate and easily understandable piece of information. A much better run-down and evaluation than I’ve seen or heard from any other source. THANK YOU, ROBERT!!

    Thank you Robert.  I don’t see that many movies, but I’m following your advice when I do.  It will be fun to see how many of your predictions come true.

    My goodness, this young man is incredibly insightful and articulate.    He has actually made me see some movies in a different light.  And looking forward to seeing ones I haven’t yet

    Mainly though, it is so wonderful to watch and listen to someone younger that is full of promise and so self confident.

    Good job everyone who has helped him become who he is.   Keep it up

      Thank you so much for your overly nicke response! It’s the people like you that make me want to create content.

    I agree, he is great.  I have forwarded this to my 14 year old granddaughter who is also interested in theater and performing.
