Jen’s 2017 Oscar picks

I have spent the last month binging Oscar movie after Oscar movie… I have chased obscure showings and tried to see as MANY as I could before tonight! I made it through a ton of the films & I must admit I am pretty proud 🙂 So without further ado, I am going to give you my favorite films vs who I think will in fact win… Movies I actually did watch will be italics. Sadly I did not make it through all the films but I tried… believe me I tried.

Jen’s Pick– Hidden Figures
Will Actually win– La La Land

I absolutely LOVED Hidden Figures, that movie moved me in ways that I can’t explain, the whole scene where she is explaining to the room of men that she has to walked to the colored bathroom… moved me and I can’t fathom what it was like in the 1960s for African Americans.

Based on the Golden Globes and just overall vibes I really do feel La La Land is going to clean up this year, and the big award will go to La La Land
