Oscars: Final Predictions – 2017

la-la-land-emma-stone-and-ryan-gosling-december-2016-movieOscars

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:

urn-newsml-dpa-com-20090101-160512-90-004988_201605131256_fullOscar: 2016 Cannes Film Festival Winners and what will translate to Oscar

Grand Prix: Xavier Dolan, It’s Only the End of the World
Best Director: Graduation (Cristian Mungiu) and Personal Shopper (Olivier Assayas)
Best Actress: Jaclyn Jose, Ma Rosa
Best Actor: Shahab Hosseini, The Salesman

We learned little from this years Cannes Film Festival, but you can make an assured assumption that the titles, actors, and directors listed above will not translate to Oscar.

Of all of them we will keep an eye on “I, Daniel Blake” and how it’s distributed, and may factor in Jose and Hosseini as dark horses as our Actor/Actress predictions narrow.

Of all the films we should see some of the following boosts: Continue reading

Oscars: Updated Predictions – April

Oscars: Updated Predictions – April

So I finally updated these. A few things have cleared up, but even almost halfway into 2016 there are still many question marks.

If I had to make a super early call though, I’d say “The Birth of a Nation” is probably your Best Picture winner this year. “Silence,” “Billy Lynn” and other will give it a run though.

Keep checking our the Oscar page for the most updated predictions!
