The 96th Academy Awards are this Sunday. After listening to our predictions, the NBP Team has made their final predictions (some of which are different from what you heard on the podcast), which you can read below. On top of that, we have a contest this awards season for you to tell us who you think will win this Sunday. Click below to enter our contest to predict the 2024 Oscars contest. All categories must be predicted, with the submission deadline being before the ceremony begins. The winner will receive one of the Best Picture nominees of their choosing on 4K UHD, Blu-Ray, or DVD (Sorry, but this only applies to U.S. entries).
