101

The Academy Awards are our Super Bowl.  The 89th Oscars are what we live for, and what we have been debating for 364 days.  Is the night really made for “La La Land” to sweep?  Was “Moonlight’s” sweep at the Independent Spirit Awards telling of support?  Can “Hidden Figures” late surging success at SAG and the Costume guild place it for a “Driving Miss Daisy-type” upset? How great will Jimmy Kimmel be? How many times will Trump’s name come up in acceptance speeches?

We have plenty of avenues for YOU, the READER, to engage with us over the next 8 hours.

There is a LIVE Blog, which is open below for you to have your own debates.  We have our new MESSAGE BOARDS, where you can discuss it via forum-style.  There’s also the classic comments section at the bottom of the page that you can engage.

Finally, if you haven’t done so, we have our #Oscars2017 Prediction Contest that is open until 7:59 pm ET.  Make sure you join before the deadline.  You can win all the Best Picture nominees on Blu-Ray or DVD, along with a gift card.
