Oscar Predictions & Party Ideas

One thing that I have not really had the opportunity to explain on The Coffee Fella is my love for movies. Each year, I try to make it a point to see every movie that has a possibility of being nominated for an academy award.

I thought I would include a few of my picks for who I think will win the major awards.

Best Picture

La La Land

I saw the majority of these best picture nominees, and I am going to have to agree with the hype and pick La La Land to win best picture. I think if you take into account the cinematography and score, you create a strong movie.

Best Director

Damien Chazelle

One of my favorite movies that has come out in the past few years was academy award nominated Whiplash, also directed by Damien Chazelle. A think this is definitely his year to win.

Best Actor

Casey Affleck

Despite some of the controversy surrounding him, I think he should win best actor for his role in Manchester by the Sea. I think he gives a great performance and would be my pick to win best actor, but I will not be surprised if he does not win.

Best Actress

Emma Stone

She has definitely had some memorable roles over the years, but I don’t think any of them were on the same level as her performance in La La Land. I believe the movie would not be at the same magnitude of popularity if it was not for Emma Stone. I think she makes the movie what it is.

Best Supporting Actor

Mahershala Ali

I have been following his career for some time now and waiting for his time to really showcase his talent. I truly think there is no question he will win this award. I do think that this category is the only one where the person who I think should win, wont win. I was a big fan of the movie Lion and believed Dev Patel played a great part. Although I was a fan off Dev Patel’s role and think he should win, Mahershala Ali’s was more impactful and probably deserves to win the academy award more his role more in Moonlight.

Best Supporting Actress

Viola Davis

Wow. Talk about an amazing actress. From the lead character in one of TV’s most popular shows in How to Get Away With Murder, to starting in tremendous movie roles, Viola Davis’ career just keeps propelling forward. I can say without a doubt she deserves to win for her role in Fences.

The Oscars are a great way to showcase the best movies of the year. Having a party to celebrate this celebration is a fun thing to do.

Below are my must have’s for any Oscar Party:
