Terver: It’s Oscars Sunday! *whooohooooo* shout it from the rooftops people.

M.Y: This is the day the lord has made and I will rejoice and be glad in it. *waves hands in the air*

Terver:  This morning we’re excited for a number of reasons, first is that we actually get to predict who wins the Oscars tonight and the second part is we’re actually planning on spending the entire day indoors praying and trusting the big man upstairs that our favorites win (like we need an excuse to stab Church service)

M.Y: So from the stables of Sodas&popcorn here are our final picks/predictions for the 86th Annual Academy Awards in every category.

Terver: For ease of understanding we have divided our picks into 3 categories: would win (almost a 100% chance), should win (we either really, really loved their performances or just think they’re really, really pretty) and long shot (*clears throat* for the sake of political correctness we’ll let this one slide)
