Final Oscar Predictions

Image result for oscars banner

Oscar night has arrived! I know I always say I'm not confident about my picks but this was a tricky year. La La Land has 14 nominations. Will it sweep? Will there be any upsetting La La Land? The technicals were tricky to predict as it didn't seem like a particularly strong year with no obvious candidates, so La La Land may default win a lot of these. I took a risk on a few predictions (Arrival winning Editing, Jackie winning Costumes and Hacksaw/LLL splitting the two sound categories) and we'll see if they pay off!
