Oscar Nomination 2017: Predictions

BeFunky Collage_70.jpg

Will La La Land dominate the Oscars or will Moonlight come on top?

If the Golden Globes was any indication, La La Land will sweep once again. However, I don’t think that will be the case. Yes. The Oscar is the time for Hollywood to congratulate itself and La La Land is the easy choice. I think Moonlight will win more awards than it did at the Golden Globes and it will make a bigger impact than people may think. Best Picture could go either way and with the La La Land backlash that is happening, it will be interesting to see if this impacts the Oscars. Before we see the winners let’s predict who will win and who should win for each category.
