Here are my picks for the 2017 Oscars.
Some are my personal preferences, and on some I will say who I think will win vs. who should. Enjoy!
PS. I’ve left out categories that I just don’t know enough about to pick from.
Picture – La La Land — I thought it was an overall okay movie, but each part of it was great. As a movie it stands out, as a lead actor/actress, Ryan Gosling/Emma Stone stood out…it was just the overall story that lacked.
Actor – Casey Affleck, Manchester by the Sea — Yes, a second ago I said Ryan Gosling was fantastic…but if there’s any category where I think La La Land could be upset, it’s this one.
Actress – Emma Stone, La La Land — Natalie Portman as Jackie has a chance to play the upset, and no one can ever discount Meryl Streep (Florence Foster Jenkins), but I think this one is Stone’s.
Supporting Actor – Mahershala Ali, Moonlight
Supporting Actress – Octavia Spencer, Hidden Figures
Animated Feature – Zootopia — Fantastic animation that I think should jump to the top of most kids’ movie lists.
