How Many Oscar Winners Did I Correctly Predict By Rolling the Dice? Eight!

My die roll predictions for the “winners” will be denoted in boldface type. 

I used a die emoji to indicate which ones my “bones” picked as the winners. It looks like the dice picked eight correct winners! I take no credit…it was all probability. I used asterisks to show the categories in which my die rolls picked the correct winners.
