If I Could Choose The Nominations (OSCARS 2020)

I don't know if anybody has ever thought this, but I wonder how many film fans have ever wondered what they'd do if they got the chance to choose the Oscars.

I'm not talking predictions. It can be fairly easy to try and get inside the head of a pompous Hollywood snob and try and act like you can see the future. But honestly, if you ever asked yourself, what would you pick for the Oscars if it were up to you? What would you do if The Academy came to your door tomorrow and said "We need YOU to determine Oscar Nominations, all by yourself, have at it?" What would you do with such power?

This isn't meant to be a list of predictions, and if I end up getting some right, well that's cool and all, but it's merely a bonus. This is who I would hope and love gets all the love from the Oscars this year.
