Awards Season 2020: My Oscars Ballot

We all wished that we had the power to cast a vote for the Academy Awards, but what would we vote for if we had a chance? I decided to make my own ballot and announce who I would pick to win every category. For the films I have not had the chance to see, either due to UK release dates or time management as a student and having a part-time job, I will disclaim them in each category for fairness. Here are my picks for every category in the 92nd Academy Awards.
