3. Oscars
Though the nominations for the Academy Awards won’t be announced until January 24, people are already putting out their picks for nominations as well as winners! Moana is set for Best Animated Feature. O.J.:Made in America is looking good for Best Documentary Feature.

It’s hard to say who will be taking home Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress and Best Supporting Actor. But people are saying Casey Affleck (Manchester by the Sea), Andrew Garfield (Hacksaw Ridge), and Dev Patel (Lion) are all hot contenders for Best Actor.

Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), Jeff Bridges (Hell or High Water), and Michael Shannon (Nocturnal Animals) are all fair game for Best Supporting Actor. Natalie Portman (Jackie), Nicole Kidman (Lion), and Amy Adams (Arrival) are all good considerations for Best Actress. Meanwhile Viola Davis (Fences), Greta Gerwig (20th Century Women), and Octavia Spencer (Hidden Figures) are predicted to be nominated for Best Supporting Actress.

Moonlight is out front to land Best Picture. As for the other categories, we’ll have to wait and see!
