Suffice to say, Cleveland Indians closer John Axford is a movie fan.

Last night before the Academy Awards kicked off its 19-hour broadcast, Axford tweeted out 18 winners in various categories... and he got every. single. one. right.

Axford, who got 14 out of 15 picks right last year, might have a future as an Oscar-picker after he retires (if that was a job, but it's definitely not. He should just keep playing baseball).

As an encore, he has vowed to pick all 24 categories for next year's Oscars.

You can check out all of his picks (along with some explanations) below:
