oscar noms

Collage by Chloe Leeson

Here at SQ we tend to take most award shows with a pinch of salt considering they are usually fall under the headings ‘sexist’ and ‘racist’, but it’s always a good bit of fun to sit around and guess who will win. But here we’ve done it a little differently, we’ve separated who we ‘want’ to win and who ‘will’ win, a nice kind of contrast between our own preferences and an attempt to step into the mind of an old white man.
