The biggest night in Hollywood, the Oscars, takes place on Sunday evening, and it’s safe to say Los Angeles is buzzing.
While it is safe to say that some of this year’s biggest films practically has an Oscar in the bag already (here’s looking at you, ‘La La Land’) it’s still a gamble as to who will take home a golden statue on the night.
Many people have already started placing their bets, giving their predictions for Oscar night.
So, here are our predictions for this year’s ceremony.
Best Picture – La La Land
La La Land has scooped almost every other award for Best Picture. The newly written musical has been a hit with critics and at the box office, so we are 90% sure the darling of Hollywood will take home the night’s biggest prize.
Best Actor – Ryan Gosling / Casey Affleck
Ryan Gosling and Casey Affleck have gone head-to-head in this category at all the other award shows thus far.
So it really is a 50-50 race between Hollywood darling, Ryan, and newcomer (and brother of Oscar winner Ben Affleck) Casey.
Best Actress – Emma Stone
It has been written in the stars that Emma Stone will take home the Best Actress Oscar. Emma has won Best Actress at literally every other award show, and with critics raving about her performance in La La Land, she might as well go collect her statue now.
Best Supporting Actor – Mahershala Ali
Ali has had critics raving about his flawless performance in ‘Moonlight’, as a drug dealer that helps a young boy. Many believe that his performance has catapulted him to the front of the race.
Best Supporting Actress – Viola Davis
It truly is about time that Viola Davis wins an Oscar. The veteran actress has received her fair share of nominations in the past, but it is her performance in ‘Fences’ that can finally nab her that elusive Oscar. Here’s holding thumbs!
While we all may speculate, we’ll only know for sure who this year’s favourite and most outstanding actors, actresses and film were this year come Sunday.
We can’t wait!
