2017 Oscar Predictions

According to movie critics, there will be no surprises during tonight’s 89th Academy Awards. The predictions from of 5 different newspapers, websites and entertainment magazines are as follows:

Best Supporting Actor Viola Davis, Fences
Best Supporting Actress Mahershala Ali, Moonlight
Best Actor Denzel Washington, Fences
Best Actress Emma Stone, La La Land
Best Director Damien Chazelle, La La Land
Best Picture La La Land

The only nominated film I have seen is Hidden Figures, however the buzz has completely dismissed this film. Belle, a fellow Pop Culture Uncovered writer, found La La Land to be boring and nothing more than a homage to Hollywood, a type of film insiders love. Her choice for Best Picture of the year, Loving, was not nominated. Of the nominated films, her choice would be Moonlight, which is a comment I’ve read several times.

Best Picture:
La La Land
Manchester By the Sea
Hell or High Water
Hidden Figures
Hacksaw Ridge
