Blugger’s 2017 Oscar Predictions

Hey, everyone, it’s that time of the year again!  As we wait for the 89th Annual Academy Awards to kick off tonight, I thought it would be cool to share my predictions for the winners.  I know I’m super late on this, but I thought it would be better to do this now than later.  From the looks of it, this seems to be the year for La La Land, but you never know – there have been some major upsets in the past.

The Oscars will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel this year, and you can catch it on ABC at 5:30 PM PST/8:30 PM EST on ABC.  Here are my predictions along with all the nominees for this year:
