Al Robinson’s Oscars Predictions


Happy Oscars Day everybody!! These are my last minute predictions and I’ve been going back and forth on several categories all week. I made a couple changes specifically from the ones I made on the Flicksation Podcast episode (Oscar Pool Party), but for the sake of those picks, those are the ones I will be judged on in the competition we have between us over there. But the ones down below here are the ones I think have the best chances of winning tonight. I guess we’ll know for sure in a few more hours. Good luck everyone.

    So did not see Moonlight winning Best Picture, I should have though. And then those stupid sound categories. Next year will be better.

    Nice predictions Al, I was leaning towards Barry Jenkins for Best Director and La La Land for Best Picture. Most of my picks are the same as you though (despite hoping Zootopia wouldn’t win) until we get to the tech awards. I thought Hacksaw Ridge was a show here for sound or either editing and that production or costume design might go elsewhere. When Arrival won Sound I was genuinely surprised but it felt right so I was doubly surprised then when Sound Editing went to Hacksaw Ridge seeing Kevin O’Connel win for the first time on his 21st nomination. As it was, that would not be the biggest surprise of the night. I was hoping August Wilson might get a posthumous Oscar for his adapted screenplay of Fences but again Moonlight getting it feels right and so your prediction was true. Star Trek would be deserving of make-up but I just figured Star Trek wasn’t going to win that.
