Manny on complete and fearless 2017 Oscar awards predictions

The fabulous Oscars weekend is upon us, and as we head toward the big Academy Awards show on Sunday, BA‘s Manny the Movie Guy gives his predictions about who will take home the coveted trophies.

Manny here! Now that the ballots are en route to the 89th Academy Awards, it is time for us to predict who will be the big winners!

 Damien Chazelle’s “La La Land” dominated the nominations with 14 nods, but will it shine on Oscar night at the city of stars?   I’m predicting that the romance musical will take home 11 awards including Best Picture!  

The musical will only lose in the actor (sorry, Ryan Gosling), original screenplay, and to its own “Audition” in the original song categories.

And you know why “La La Land” will win big?  Because when the country is in turmoil, popular culture swings to the opposite way.  And the film, with its sweet rose-colored palette and fancy production numbers made us all happy.  And Hollywood wants us all happy.

We’ll find out all the happy Oscar winners on Sunday at 5 p.m. pacific when the Academy Awards will be broadcast live from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

Here is Manny the Movie Guy’s complete, fearless and final Oscar’s 2017 winning predictions:
