Oscar Predictions 2017


Oscar Predictions 2017!

Oh boy, this year was pretty tough trying to put together my Oscar picks.  There are a few categories that feel neck and neck, some possible upsets, late newcomers and, of course controversy.  I’m a little bit late getting up my list but it’s just one of those years where I had a difficult time with some of the categories.  Obviously “La La Land” is the big favorite and will take the majority of awards (this is my favorite movie of the year as well).  However, categories like Best Actor and Best Song could go a number of different ways.  So without further ado, here are my predictions.  This is not who I want to win but who I think will win.
