(UPDATED: February 27, 2017)

A scent of arrogance and chill are in the air.  The chill lets us know that fall is in effect and winter is approaching.  The whiff of arrogance we detect behind that let's us know it's Oscar season.  The historic 90th Academy Awards will commence on March 4, 2018.  Between now and then, awards season trots out bouquets, standing ovations, marketing pushes, and shiny hardware of who and what they feel are the best works of the year in film.

With that, welcome back to the seventh year of Every Movie Has a Lesson's "Awards Tracker."  My goal every year is simple: Help each and every one of you win your Oscar pools.  There's a shiny Blu-ray copy of La La Land on my shelf after winning one charity contest last year (thanks Mark Dujsik of Mark Reviews Movies).  My high score was correctly guessing 20-out-of-24 back in 24.  Even with a victorious Blu-ray prize on my shelf, last year's 15 correct predictions was my lowest in six years.  It's time to get back to the 20+ threshold.  Stick with me and we'll will some prizes together!

Here's how this little page of my personal interest works.  I find value in tracking the trends and following the tea leaves of the all the minor lead-up awards before the Oscars.  I chart the winners of each category with listed winners and comments on the surrounding buzz.  If you're a fan of high quality film and awards shows, there's no better time of the year and Every Movie Has a Lesson is here to make you sharper and smarter every step of the way.  Bookmark this page as I'll update these tallies often!
