ENTERTAINMENT: SWAMI SCOTTY ACADEMY AWARDS PREDICTIONS



Swami Scotty predicts (with help from the future-predicting algorithms of Google) that La La Land will win best picture. I also see awards in the future for Mahershala Ali "Moonlight" and Viola Davis "Fences" (supporting actor).

There are still some categories that are unclear. I can't force my gift...
Here are the Too Close to Calls...

Best Actress
Emma Stone won at the Golden Globes and SAG Awards, so she's a favourite.
But there might not be an Oscar in it for her performance in La La Land because some people are annoyed with La La Land. So maybe Isabelle Huppert in "Elle."

Best Actor
Casey Affleck ("Manchester by the Sea") seemed like a guarantee. But he's going up against Denzel Washington and now Washington might be a slight favorite for his performance in "Fences."

Best Screenplay
If "La La Land" wins it could tie the record for most wins at the Academy Awards. Probably won't happen though. Looks like it'll be "Manchester by the Sea".

Best Director
Director of "La La Land" Damien Chazelle may have it won. But sometimes they won't pick the director of the Best Picture winner. So maybe Barry Jenkins ("Moonlight") will win.
