Who I think should Win the Oscars

I'm bringing you a rare weekend post in honor of the Academy Awards! While I'm not really a big awards show fan and probably won't watch tonight I do love movies. This year I made a point of watching all the big movies so I could make what I feel is a fair assessment of who should win the Oscars.

Best Picture - The Post - I honestly did not expect to like this one and was putting it off because I hadn't heard very good things. It reminded me a little bit of All the President's Men in both subject and the way it was shot. I think this one has a real shot at taking home the award because of the subject matter; female empowerment/don't let the government dictate the news.

Actor in a lead Roll - Gary Oldman in Darkest Hour - Until I saw the Post Darkest Hour was my favorite to win best picture and that's 100% because of Gary Oldman's acting. That scene on the tube was just remarkable

Actress in a lead roll - Frances McDormand in Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri - There's no way you could watch this and not feel emotional. The whole movie was total raw emotion.

Actor in a supporting role - Woody Harrelson in Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri - To me this was the weakest category, so I went with Woody Harrelson because of the nominees he's my favorite.

Actress in a supporting role - Allison Janney in I, Tonya - I love Allison Janney but after this movie I hated her; that's how you know someone placed a role well

Animated Film - Coco - Honestly this was the best movie I saw all year and I think it was robbed of a nomination for best picture. If this doesn't win the voters clearly don't know what they're doing.

Song - Remember Me Coco - This is always one of my favorite categories so I'm so excited to have a song nominated I love so much!

Who do you think should win? What are your predictions?
