My 2017 Oscar Predictions

My wife and I find Oscar Awards an exciting occasion. We talk about the great movies that have come out during the last year and discuss our take at the things that stand out.

It’s not as hard this year to predict as it was the last year or the one before. That’s because the number of good movies that came out in the past was much higher than this year.

Best Picture: La La Land

I loved Hacksaw Ridge, Monnlight & Arrival too. I find that La La Land outshines the rest for doing a tremendous job across all the aspects of movie-making.

Best Actor: Denzel Washington, for Fences

I loved Casey Affleck in Manchester by the Sea. But Denzel, in my view, has given a performance that will be hard to forget for years.

Best Actress: Emma Stone, for La La Land

Let’s just say I am super-biased for her :). Jokes apart, Emma Stone has done wonders again! Isabelle Huppert in Elle would have been my choice if Emma wasn’t in the race.

Best Supporting Actor: Mahershala Ali, for Moonlight

Dev Patel has come a long way — but unfortunately, I felt that Lion was a much better movie until we saw Dev Patel.

Best Supporting Actress: Viola Davis, for Fences

If Nicole Kidman (Lion) and Michelle Williams (Manchester by the Sea) did not have such short roles in those movies, my take might have been different. I loved both of them even when their appearances were for small duration.

Best Director: Damien Chazelle, La La Land

Do I need to say anything?

Best Animated Feature Film: Zootopia

The movie is phenominal. A very well made animation. The DMV office scene is going to be remembered for ages. Kubo and The Two Strings & Moana are fantastic too.

Fingers crossed for the awards tomorrow 🙂
