My Oscar 2017 Predictions

Here are my predictions for winners of the 89th Annual Academy Awards, or the Oscars, to be televised

Sunday, February 26th on ABC-TV. My predictions are subject to change before the telecast of the awards.

I'm expecting a "La La Land" sweep, taking home around 8-10 awards. However, this year, more than usual, has the potential for a few upsets. Possible upsets are looming in the following categories:

Best Actor
