Voting for Academy members is set to close Tuesday February 21st and the predictions for the numerous categories will be finalized. La La Land has been nominated fourteen times and may end up the big winner, but a lot of attention is being directed to the performances in Fences. Best motion picture possible Oscar winners are “The Birth of a Nation” (Fox Searchlight) “Maggie’s Plan” (Sony Pictures Classics).

The obvious choice to punt on would definitely be La La Land which was sort of crowned the Best Picture winner back in September when Tom Hanks told a crowd at the Telluride Film Festival that the movie was “brand new” and something “that you can’t imagine.” Since the ‘crowning’, by Tom Hanks  the $30 million musical has attracted more than $125 million in North American theaters.
