Final Oscar Predictions

Tomorrow, bright and early on, 89th Academy Awards nominations will be announced. The one thing that is for certain is that La La Land, Moonlight, Manchester by the Sea and Arrival are sure to dominate. Then it gets a little interesting. Will Isabelle Huppert be nominated for Best Actress? Will Viggo Mortensen be nominated for Best Actor? Did enough of the Academy see and, or, appreciate the brilliance of Scorsese’s Silence to get it multiple nominations? Will Best Director have the exact same nominees as the DGA? And, as always, what will be the biggest surprise and snub this year? What one film or actor be left out that has received a tremendous amount nominations throughout the critic and guild races? Many questions will be answered tomorrow morning.

Below is my full list of predictions, minus the short categories. Enjoy!!!
