Best Picture: “Lady Bird”
moviefan61794: “Lady Bird” winning is awesome. Also makes me feel better about Gerwig’s chances.
Best Director: Sean Baker, “The Florida Project”
Freeman Griffin: I so want him to at least get nominated for the Oscar!
Best Actor: Timothee Chalamet, “Call Me By Your Name”
Noah Arlington: congrats to Lil Timmy Tim !! I officially have him #2 under Oldman for best actor.
Zooey the Dreamer: In the end, Oldman and Streep will win the Oscars.
Gus Cruz: Any Actor award not given to Oldman’s just-give-it-to-me Oscar bait performance this season should be celebrated.
Best Actress: Saoirse Ronan, “Lady Bird”
Marcus Snowdon: I’m beginning to think that Ronan is more of a threat to McDormand and Streep than we initially realized.
Gregory Delisle: Take that Meryl
Best Supporting Actor: Willem Dafoe, “The Florida Project”
ATypical: Dafoe! Guess this starts the steamroll.
Best Supporting Actress: Tiffany Haddish, “Girls Trip”
Hunter-ish: You go get that Oscar Haddish. I have hope and I am now officially adding her to my Oscar predictions!
Emmy Winner: She is very talented, but she is simply not award worthy in “Girls Trip”.
