Jimmy Kimmel on what to expect from the Oscars this year

Jimmy Kimmel on what to expect from the Oscars this year

Will Win: There are five movies with a legitimate shot to win, which makes this year more hard than usual to call.

88 - If Christopher Plummer wins best supporting actor he would be the oldest victor in an acting category, but he's likely to be beaten by Sam Rockwell for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri.

The incident refers to the time when the incorrect envelope was handed to presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway for 2017's Best Picture award. In the seventies, we saw films about gangsters and mobsters who question morality and bend the rules on normative ethics winning Best Picture.

Kaluuya is also nominated in the best actor category - against fellow Brit Gary Oldman, for his transformation into wartime prime minister Sir Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour. It is such an effortlessly flawless slice of life film that will be around far after this awards season noise comes to an end.

Amongst the frontrunners at this year's Oscars are The Shape of Water and Get Out.

"The Shape of Water", a Cold War-set story of love between a mute cleaning woman and a mystery merman-like creature, tops the nominations with 13, although observers expect the spoils to be fairly evenly spread. Additionally, as sad as it is, Academy voters may not vote for "Get Out" because of its genre.

Actress: Frances McDormand, "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri".

The 90th Oscars take place on Sunday, with The Shape of Water and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri expected to do battle for the main prizes. There are a lot of deserving films here.

Golden said, "Interesting year in that the director of the likely best picture victor was not nominated in the directing category".

Category Snub: Best Picture is open to 10 slots, but the Academy only picked nine films.

Cinematography: Roger Deakins finally wins, for "Blade Runner 2049".

He's a pretty predictable fellow, that Oscar.

"Shape of Water" appears to have the upper hand, having already collected the usually prophetic Producers Guild of America Award, although the victor of that honor the past two years has failed to win the top Oscar. That's usually a really good sign and it's why I'm giving it the edge over "Three Billboards".

Others have tried the stunt as well, with an artist named Sabo putting up three billboards against sexual misconduct in Hollywood with sings that read: "And the Oscar for biggest pedophile goes to..." and "We all knew and still no arrests" and "Name names on stage or shut the hell up!" Audiences are captivated by the sartorial elegance of the red carpet, by the rhapsodic air circulating these people and by the chance to see the film they loved, the film that punctured their heart, that made them laugh, that made them cry, get recognition it deserves. He was shocked when it happened, and said as much onstage: "I'm a God-fearing man, I'm supposed to have faith; but I didn't have faith".

Adapted screenplay: James Ivory, "Call Me By Your Name". He was, of course, Elio in "Call Me by Your Name". Additionally, it doesn't have enormous competition at the moment.

Will Win: Rockwell is the favorite but I smell an upset. The most likely to have been seen is Get Out - one in three under the age of 30 and one in three African-Americans report having seen it, as well as 20% of adults overall.

Will Win: Janney, a riot in "I, Tonya", is the favorite.

Those are my final predictions. The red carpet event will begin an hour before the ceremony.

Facebook will host "The Oscars: All Access" from the pages of The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences and ABC, according to Engadget.
