Well, here we are. Early in a year wrought with transition. The Oscars follow suit shattering a two year #OscarsSoWhite trend with a much more diverse field of nominees. Films like Lion, Moonlight, Fences, and Hidden Figures received much love this year, and deservedly so! We can now move past the petty race conversation and put the spotlight on what the Oscars are all about: honoring the best art, performance, craft, and cinema that all people have to offer.

For those of you eagerly awaiting my annual predictions, your wait is over.

The 89th Annual Academy Awards will air on ABC Sunday, February 26th at 8:30 EST, and The People’s Critic has assembled his list of 2017 Oscar Predictions for all 24 categories!

Visit my Awards Spotlight Page for links to Oscar Predictions past and present as well as a link to the highly anticipated 2017 Oscar Dinner Menu.
