The Oscars or as some calls it the La La Land awards will be held this Sunday, the following are my predictions of the movies that will win big at the Academy Awards this year :
- Male Actor in Leading role (Called it) :
Who will win : Casey Affleck
Who I think should win : Casey Affleck
Casey really stole every award this year for his role on Manchester by the Sea, it was a realistic and powerful performance and I really hope he gets the recognition he deserves.
- Female Actress in Leading Role (Called it):
Who Will Win : Emma Stone
Who I think should win : Emma Stone
Emma really took her acting chops to another level with La La Land and I doubt she will walk home empty handed
- Male Actor in Supporting role
Who will win (Called it): Mahershala Ali
Who I think should win : Mahershala Ali
Moonlight is one of my favorite movies of the year and the first act of the film is highlighted by Mahershala Ali’s masterful performance, really amazing.
- Female Actress in Supporting role
Who will win (Called it): Viola Davis
Who I think should win : Naomie Harris
I haven’t seen Fences but I heard how good Viola is in that movie and I think she will take the statue home, personally I think Naomie Harris was absolutely fantastic in Moonlight.
- Best Original Screenplay
Who will win (Went to Manchester by The Sea) : Damian Chazelle for La La Land
Who I think should win : Damian Chazelle for La La Land
La La Land’s screenplay is great for few reasons, it is funny, deep, moving and emotionally packed while being an engaging story about love and chasing dreams, it doesn’t get any better than that.
- Best Adapted Screenplay
Who will win (Called it) : Barry Jenkins for Moonlight
Who I think should win : Barry Jenkins for Moonlight
Moonlight takes a simple coming of age story to another level by its amazing performance and story and it owes both of them to the amazing screenplay.
- Best Director :
Who will win (Called it) : Damian Chazelle for La La Land
Who I think should win : Denis Villeneuve for Arrival
While Damian is getting a lot of attention for his amazing musical for me Denis made one of the best movies of the year too bad Sci-Fi films don’t usually get so much love from the Academy
- Best Picture
Which movie will win (Called it) : Moonlight
Which movie I think should win : Moonlight
Moonlight deals with a very tough subject and it does it so well, it is a perfectly crafted movie that doesn’t entertain you but shows you a reality that people go through and I think that is rare.
I will update this post as soon as the Winners are announced.
Edit: So I was only off by 1 Prediction.
