This Sunday, February 24th, the 91st annual Academy Awards will broadcast, and for the 13th straight year, my family has done an Oscar pool. Regardless of where I’ve been in the world during the show (Navy Bootcamp being the most inconvenient), we’ve kept it going, and I’m excited. Not so much for this year’s show, which I’m highly skeptical about, but for the results which I can see going any number of ways. Predictions set, my family goes into this year’s show with my brothers having won five straight pools, and nine times total. I’m determined to win this year.
