After following the Oscars all year long, you would think that I would have a good idea of how they might go. Nobody really knows as much as might claim they do. The only lock is Viola Davis for Best Supporting Actress. Most presume that La La Land is a sure thing for Best Picture and it probably is, but I am going with a Best Picture/Director Split. Moonlight for Best Picture and Damian Chazelle for Director. I am probably wrong, but I can’t ignore the passion that is behind Moonlight right now.
