The Wise Guise Pick The Oscar Winners

8516653 600x338 300x169 The Wise Guise Pick The Oscar Winners

Welcome to Clayton Martin and Joseph Williams’ Oscar Picks! This is the 6th year in a row we have done this but we finally have a good outlet to share it with you guys! We will be updating the winners on the webpage as the awards are given out and live tweeting our thoughts during the show. Joseph Williams is the defending champion. (By the slimmest of margins, Clayton would like to add)

Clayton would also like to publicly issue the following challenge: Starting next year, you can only select films you have seen. For instance, you can’t pick Christopher Plummer from Beginners unless you’ve seen Beginners. You can’t pick A Separation, unless of course you’ve seen A Separation. Just a thought.

For this year, picks were submitted at the same time to ensure no foul play. There are still only two variances so this has pretty much turned into here is who WILL win according to The Wise Guise. Here are our picks!
