Movies with Matt: Film Aficionado Matt Clark Makes His Oscars Picks & Predictions
At Brewers On Deck, through his Twitter & Instagram Q&A, we learned that Matt Clark loves the movies:
In fact, he is a self-professed “Film Aficionado” according to his Twitter bio:
So, we made Matt his own special Oscars Ballot where he could make his own picks (who he would give the awards to if he had his say) and his predictions (who he thinks the Academy will choose). His official picks and predictions for the top five categories were also placed in special sealed envelopes and he unveiled them on Twitter this afternoon, leading up to the Academy Awards.
Matt, who made headlines earlier this year for his live tweeting of The Bachelor, tells me he’ll try to live tweet along with the broadcast tonight, so be sure to follow him @MattClark60 for his opinions and insight and to see how his picks and predictions hold up!
2/23 Update: True to his word, Matt Clark did indeed live tweet the entire Academy Awards ceremony last night and his predictions held up fairly well, going 16 for 24 and falling just one shy of former Brewers pitcher John Axford who, after pitching a perfect Oscars game last year, took over MLB’s Twitter account during the event.
If Matt had gone with his gut and used a couple more of his picks as predictions, he would have been 18 for 24–pretty darn impressive!
Here are some highlights:
