Oscars 2017: predictions, snubs and my favourites

Oscars 2017 are getting closer and closer!

Here are my favourites, snubs and predictions.

Best Picture
Arrival
Fences
Hacksaw Ridge
Hell or High Water
Hidden Figures
La La Land
Lion
Manchester by the Sea
Moonlight

Oscar prediction: Huh, I'm not sure. A few weeks back I would say La La Land but now I'm not so sure.
My favorite: Hacksaw Ridge or Hidden Figures. La La Land would also be ok. Moonlight was also good but other ones I don't see as best picture.


Best Actress
Isabelle Huppert, Elle
Ruth Negga, Loving
Natalie Portman, Jackie
Emma Stone, La La Land
Meryl Streep, Florence Foster Jenkins

Oscar prediction: Emma Stone
My favorite: Emma Stone
Snubs: Amy Adams (Arrival) and Taraji P. Henson (Hidden Figures). I would replace them with Isabelle and Ruth. Don't get me wrong: they were also good but not as much as Amy and Taraji.


Best Supporting Actress
Viola Davis, Fences
Naomie Harris, Moonlight
Nicole Kidman, Lion
Octavia Spencer, Hidden Figures
Michelle Williams, Manchester by the Sea

Oscar prediction: Viola Davis
My favorite: Viola was the most powerful I guess but Octavia was my fav.
Snub: Janelle Monáe (Hidden Figures) in Michelle out.



Best Actor
Casey Affleck, Manchester by the Sea
Andrew Garfield, Hacksaw Ridge
Ryan Gosling, La La Land
Viggo Mortensen, Captain Fantastic
Denzel Washington, Fences

Oscar prediction: Casey Affleck
My favorite: Viggo Mortensen
Andrew and Ryan were good but I'm not sure I would nominate them even.



Best Supporting Actor
Mahershala Ali, Moonlight
Jeff Bridges, Hell or High Water
Lucas Hedges, Manchester by the Sea
Dev Patel, Lion
Michael Shannon, Nocturnal Animals

Oscar prediction: This is the most tricky category and I'm really not sure who Academy favours?
My favorite: was snubbed.
Snub: Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Nocturnal Animals). His performance was so sick and good it's scary.



Best Director
Denis Villeneuve, Arrival
Mel Gibson, Hacksaw Ridge
Damien Chazelle, La La Land
Kenneth Lonergan, Manchester by the Sea
Barry Jenkins, Moonlight

Oscar prediction: Damien Chazelle
My favorite: Damien Chazelle really did a nice job! I would also be happy for Mel!
