Dorking Out Episode 35: The Oscar Predictions by Dorking Out Studios Edition

Hey there, dorks. We are really excited about this week’s episode, because we share our Oscar predictions for Sunday night’s Academy Awards. We have been big Oscar nerds our entire lives, so the Oscars are something we REALLY dork out about, which is why you got an Oscar nomination podcast, an Oscar predictions podcast, and next week you’ll get an Oscar winners podcast, in which we reveal how we did with our Oscar picks.

We don’t wanna brag, but we have a pretty good track record, so you might want to pay attention and win your office Oscar pool. We will be posting our official ballots on right here on the blog on Saturday. Until you then, you’ll need to listen to the podcast to get our predictions.

Oh, and one more thing about the Oscars, Chris and Sonia will actually be in the same room at the same time, so we will be doing a little Facebook Live on Sunday throughout the night to update on how accurate our predictions are and offer a few thoughts on the show.

The Academy Awards air Sunday on ABC.

In our second segment, we play another round of Dorking Out Studios with Raymond Scott Dagle, Coryon Redd and Smith giving me, the head of Dorking Out Studios, their best movie pitches. All of that, plus our favorite headlines of the week.

We hope you enjoy our dorky podcast. You can listen to us here, or you can find us on iTunes, Stitcher and YouTube.

  1. Hi, long-time listener here, thought I’d put in my two cents in your Oscars challenge. My list is almost identical to what both of you came up with, except I think Casey Affleck might still eke out a win over Denzel. Also going waaaaay out on a limb and selecting Portman for Best Actress (seems like there’s often an extreme upset in one of the acting categories, and this is the only acting race where I even see it as a possibility since the Supporting categories are a lock). Looking forward to your live FB on the big night!

  2. Hi John! These are great picks. I think you’ve got a great shot with Casey Affleck, and your reason for picking Natalie Portman is spot on. There is usually one surprise of the night, and that could be it.

    Thank you for listening, and thank you for sharing your picks!
