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:

Top 10: Most Anticipated Films of 2016

fassbenderheaderTop 10: Most Anticipated Films of 2016

2016 may be an even more interesting year for the movie industry. We dive deeper into the “Star Wars” franchise, we expand the “Star Trek” and “Harry Potter” franchises and DC Comics arrives super late to the comic book adaptation game.

Some of these films make my top 10, but not all of them. I’ve notably excluded “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” because I’m really not excited for it. I’m also not particularly excited for any Marvel film (“Captain America,” “Deadpool,” “Doctor Strange”), not excited for many reboots such as “Ghostbusters,” and not really excited for sequels such as “Finding Dory” or “Zoolander 2,” even though both could turn out very good.

Here are my personal top 10 starting with some honorable mentions:

Honorable Mentions: Passengers, Assassin’s Creed, Voyage of Time, Midnight Special, The Jungle Book
