    I think it will be more women then men honorees this year which would be a nice change of pace.

    My predictions:

    Burt Bacharach
    Cynthia Gregory
    Reba McEntire
    Bette Midler
    Dick Van Dyke

    My vote:

    Eric Clapton
    Sally Field
    Whoopi Goldberg
    Bonnie Raitt
    Betty White

    These would be my five picks:
    1) Mick Jagger
    2) Betty White
    3) Frankie Valli
    4) Bernadette Peters
    5) Dick Van Dyke

    But this is who I think it will be:
    1) Joan Baez
    2) Alan Alda
    3) Betty White
    4) Dick Van Dyke
    5) Liza Minnelli

    Betty White and Dick Van Dyke are WAY overdue for this honor!

    It seems like there aren’t enough picks in dance, opera, theatre or classical music, the sort of arts for which the Kennedy Center was created.  My options for this year would be:

    Joan Baez
    Kathleen Battle
    Berry Gordy
    Tony Kushner
    Bette Midler

    For predictions: Cher, and all the above except Berry Gordy.

    I don’t see Cher or Bette accepting because of Trump. Norman Lear probably only accepted because he’s 95 and could not afford to wait three years.

    Bette mentioned in a 2013 Tweet that she was overlooked because they knew she had a show that day.  I don’t think she would turn it down, with or without Trump.

    Here are my picks for 2019:

    Burt Bacharach
    Cynthia Gregory
    Spike Lee
    Aruturo Sandoval
    Dick Van Dyke

    And for 2020:

    Vladimir Ashkenazy
    Michael Caine
    Whoopi Goldberg
    The Rolling Stones
    Tommy Tune

    They have to give the KCH to Arturo Sandoval sooner or later.  I’m sure a tribute will include this.

    Arlo Guthrie is the reigning Father of Folk Music not to mention Woodstock alumnus.  The last true folk performer to receive a Kennedy Center Honor was Pete Seeger in 1994. Woody Guthrie passed the torch to Pete. Pete passed the torch to Arlo.

    No one deserves a Kennedy Center Honor more than Arlo Guthrie and no genre of music deserves recognition by the Kennedy Center more than folk.

    I did pick a folk music artist, Joan Baez. She paved the way for women in rock and roll, every female singer-songwriter from the 1970s onward has stood on her shoulders.

    Betty White

    If she does not get it this year, then someone should do a Kanye West and interrupt the ceremony and say that Betty White deserves this!
