Bede’s 2017 Oscar Predictions

oscars-1

I can’t believe it’s almost that time of the year once again. In a couple of days the Academy Awards will finally be announced and I’m very curious to see how this year’s one is going to turn out. It definitely one of the strongest line-up of films to be nominated in the Best Picture category for sure. Seriously nearly all of them could have a won Best Picture in a different year. However that being said I think it’s pretty safe to say this year’s one without a doubt belongs to LA LA LAND, the little modern-day musical that came out and pretty much became an instant front-runner. I mean the fact that stands alongside ALL ABOUT EVE and TITANIC as the most nominated films ever with 14 nods is an incredible feat. It would definitely be safe bet to put all your money on it to win for this year’s awards. But is it possible that some of other films might cause an upset in any of the categories it’s nominated for? Perhaps. I guess we’ll have to wait and see. So without further ado, here’s my write-up are who I predict will win at this year’s Oscars. Enjoy!
