Mike's Early Oscar Predictions 2017

Time to think about Oscars again. I must say the films that seem to be in the running are not very impressive this year. A trend that has happened for the past ten years!

Hollywood releases their hopefuls the last week of December, hoping people will vote for the last movie they saw. That said, I think La La Land will dominate most areas. Hacksaw Ridge (a very good war movie) should get some technical awards, and Amy Adams just might steal for her part in Arrival. But other than these three. Not sure what else will challenge.

My favorites are Hell or High Water and Nocturnal Animals. Both early releases but still much talked about…both moives might steal one or two Oscars but they are a little distant in memory.

Should be a fun night on February 26!
