The biggest night in Hollywood has arrived! ‘La La Land,’ ‘Fences,’ and more top movies of 2016 are nominated for Oscars this year, but who will win? My money is on celebs like Emma Stone, Viola Davis, and more! Here are all my Academy Award predictions!

La La Land is currently tied with Titanic and All About Eve for the most Oscar nominations ever with 14 nods. If Emma wins Best Actress, like I predict she will, it will be the starlet’s first-ever Academy Award. The same goes for La La Land director Damien.
My predictions were made on our sister site GoldDerby.com. The 89th annual Academy Awards will air at 8:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, February 26, 2017. Late night host Jimmy Kimmel will be hosting the show for the first time. Lin-Manuel Miranda, Sting, Justin Timberlake, and John Legend will be performing their Academy Award-nominated songs at this year’s Oscars ceremony. Come back to HollywoodLife.com on Oscar night for all the coverage, including photos, videos, and more!
