Three possibilities exist to explain Indians closer John Axford correctly picking 18 out of 18 categories at the Oscars:

One, John Axford has an extensive knowledge of film history and Academy voting patterns.

Two, John Axford got lucky.

Three, John Axford is in fact a psychic, and his perfect Oscar bracket is only the opening salvo in a campaign of global domination.
