Did The Oscars Just Accidentally Reveal Who’s Gonna Win..?
But … the award ceremony isn’t ‘til Monday?
Something perplexing came to our attention today. It has to do with the Oscars. Specifically The Academy’s Twitter account. Let us explain. The Academy tweeted a picture showing their ‘Oscars predictions’ ahead of the event on Sunday. The predictions tweet was accidentally shared as the Academy was launching its new Oscars Prediction Experience on Twitter, which gives fans the chance to tweet their own predictions ahead of awards show. See below.

So, the people who tell us who will win the Oscars are predicting those wins in advance..? Surely these are actually the winners then? We don’t get it.
The Academy has since deleted the tweet. They then replaced it with a follow-up tweet, explaining that there was a glitch and basically it’s all Twitter’s fault. See below.
We invited fans on Twitter to make and share your #Oscars predictions.
A ton of you already have! 😀
A brief issue on Twitter made some of yours look like they came from our account.😳
They didn’t. This error is now resolved.
And we’ll reveal our picks on Sunday.

So the Academy didn’t tweet their shoo-ins, apparently, but a lot of the awards that were picked do feel like pretty good bets for Oscars punters. 1917 for Cinematography, Directing and many others, Parasite for Best Picture and Little Women for Costume Design. Hmmm. We'll have to wait until Monday 12pm AEDT to find out whether there’s any truth in these “predictions” or not.
