Awards season is finally coming to a close this weekend with the 90th Annual Academy Awards. The voting has now concluded and we’ll know in just a few short days the winners of Hollywood’s biggest prize. Figured this would be one last time to put in my predictions for what will end up winning this year as well as discuss what should win in each category. Some of these are fairly easy to predict, but a couple of the major awards are more difficult to narrow down including Best Picture. “The Shape of Water” is going into the show with the most nominations, but can it go all the way? Can a genre film like “Get Out” win the big award? Will the backlash against “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” hurt its chances in some pivotal categories? Let’s dig in!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! We got some exciting new releases to celebrate the 4-day weekend as we have Pixar’s latest entry “Coco,” Gary Oldman’s much-buzzed performance in “Darkest Hour,” Dan Stevens and Christopher Plummer starring in “The Man Who Invented Christmas,” and one of the heavy-hitting Oscar frontrunners “Call Me By Your Name.” Let’s take a closer look!
