Oscars: Final Predictions – 2017


We aren’t expecting the “La La Land” backlash to stop the film from collecting several awards come Sunday. We are predicting 10 victories for the musical with our final predictions.

Oscar ceremony will begin 8:30 PM ET this Sunday, but we usually post our final predictions when voting closes, which happened 3 days ago. Here’s how we think it’ll play out:
