Best Motion Picture – Drama: “Hacksaw Ridge“; “Hell or High Water”; “Lion”; “Manchester by the Sea”; “Moonlight”

Who We Think Will Win: Most are betting on “Moonlight” a beautiful film about a young man’s story of his life experiences that deal with dysfunctional home life, pain, falling in love, and come to terms with his own sexuality. But Moonlight will have hard competition with “Hacksaw Ridge”, which is a favorite of the HFPA, a true story about a war hero who fought on the battle lines of WWII without using a single weapon. Moonlight breaks boundaries, is honest, and something we need to see more of.

Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama: Casey Affleck – “Manchester by the Sea”; Joel Edgerton – “Loving”; Andrew Garfield – “Hacksaw Ridge”; Viggo Mortensen – “Captain Fantastic”; Denzel Washington – “Fences”

Who We Think Will Win: Casey Affleck, who played a loner janitor in the movie “Manchester by the sea”, had to chose to turn his whole life around by deciding whether or not he wants to raise his nephew after his brother’s death. Casey Affleck gives a tremendous performance of pure honesty when he has to deal with not only moving back home, losing a sibling, but trying to understand his nephew and make him open up that leads to reopening an unspeakable tragedy. There’s no doubt in our mind that favorite Casey Affleck will take this award.

Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama: Amy Adams – “Arrival”; Jessica Chastain – “Miss Sloane”; Isabelle Huppert – “Elle”; Ruth Negga – “Loving”; Natalie Portman – “Jackie”

Who We Think Will Win: The Golden Globes and Oscars always has a surprise that leaves you saying, “what?” I think this is the category to do so. Natalie Portman gave a spectacular performance in “Jackie”, giving class and grace to the First Lady. But no one can seem to stop talking about the movie “Arrival”. Amy plays Louise Banks, who risks her life and possibly mankinds to unveil the mystery of extraterrestrial visitors, with an unexpected twist in the end, it left moviegoers speechless.

Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy: “20th Century Women”; “Deadpool“; “La La Land”; “Florence Foster Jenkins”; “Sing Street”

Who We Think Will Win: There is no competition here, “La La Land” will be taking this award home. A musical filled with comedy, love, heartbreak, and a struggle of achieving your dreams. It reminds me of classic musicals like “Singing in the Rain”, which if you watch very closely you can find the connections between great classic motion pictures. Everything about this movie is beautiful, the music, the colors, the story line. Chazelle did not disappoint, leaving audiences saying it’s one of their favorite movies of all times.

Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy: Colin Farrell – “The Lobster”; Ryan Gosling – “La La Land”; Hugh Grant – “Florence Foster Jenkins”; Jonah Hill – “War Dogs”; Ryan Reynolds – “Deadpool”

Who We Think Will Win: There’s Ryan Reynolds who gave a great comedic performance in “Deadpool”, and Jonah Hill, who gave a pretty comedic but terrifying performance as a dealer in “War Dogs”. But our vote goes to Ryan Gosling, who plays Sebastian, a struggling musician with a love for Jazz, who doesn’t necessarily get everything he dreams of at the end. And can we add that Ryan Gosling learned to play the piano for his role, and learned all the songs by heart….swoon.

Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy: Annette Bening – “20th Century Women”; Lily Collins – “Rules Don’t Apply”; Hailee Steinfeld – “The Edge of Seventeen”; Emma Stone – “La La Land”; Meryl Streep – “Florence Foster Jenkins”

Who We Think Will Win: Out of all these nominees, this is a no-brainer. Emma Stone do you have your speech ready? There is no competition. La La Land, will hopefully be winning big this year.

Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture: Mahershala Ali – “Moonlight”; Jeff Bridges – “Hell or High Water”; Simon Helberg – “Florence Foster Jenkins”; Dev Patel – “Lion”; Aaron Taylor-Johnson – “Nocturnal Animals”

Who We Think Will Win: Mahershala Ali (“Moonlight”) has been dominant as Casey Affleck on the critics’ choice so far. As much as I’m in inclined to Dev Patel because he is personally my favorites, we are giving Mahershala this win due to his honest performance as a mentor. He really connected to this character and it shows on screen.

Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture: Viola Davis – “Fences”; Naomie Harris – “Moonlight”; Nicole Kidman – “Lion”; Octavia Spencer – “Hidden Figures”; Michelle Williams – “Manchester by the Sea”

Who We Think Will Win: This one is a tough competition with such great movies and actress within them. I didn’t get to see “Fences”, but I heard Viola Davis is a favorite win for this competition and she never disappoints. Naomi’s Harris plays a mom who is not only affected by drugs, but the exploration her son’s sexuality. Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman plays an adoptive mother, who risks losing her son and family. Hidden Figures has Octavia Spencer, who never disappoints as well, and a very empowering female movie. While Michelle Williams, plays Casey Affleck’s wife in the film, having to deal with the change he has to take on. I’m going against the odds and giving this to Michelle Williams, who gave a stunning performance, breaking boundaries in this character as an actress.

Best Director – Motion Picture: Damien Chazelle – “La La Land”; Tom Ford – “Nocturnal Animals”; Mel Gibson – “Hacksaw Ridge”; Barry Jenkins – “Moonlight”; Kenneth Lonergan – “Manchester by the Sea”

Who We Think Will Win: I’ve said once, and I’ll keep saying it, “La La Land”. Chazelle filmed this movie within 8 weeks and made a musical resembling classics we once loved. He shot continuously, using little to no CGI when Ryan Gosling played the piano and transitioned the movie beautifully. In the end, leaving us with our own interpretation.

Best Screenplay: “La La Land”; “Nocturnal Animals”; “Moonlight”; “Manchester by the Sea”; “Hell or High Water”

Who We Think Will Win: This one is a tough one, my heart wants to say La La Land because it was just one of the best movies of 2016, but you have “Moonlight” who is breaking boundaries and really makes you emotionally vulnerable. While “Manchester by the Sea”, makes you think about family and one can really connect to this story line, but I’m not convinced the HFPA really loved this movie. I’m going with “Moonlight” because they did break boundaries and is a fan favorite.

Best Original Score – Motion Picture: Nicholas Britell– “Moonlight”; Justin Hurwitz – “La La Land”; Johann Johannsson – “Arrival”; Dustin O’Halloran, Hauschka – “Lion”; Hans Zimmer, Pharrell Williams, Benjamin Wallfisch – “Hidden Figures”

Who We Think Will Win: Hans Zimmer is always a critic favorite, bringing audiences some of their all time favorite scores, and adding Pharrell to the mix changed the whole game. Justin Hurwitz brings beauty and emotion to La La Land, I have “Mia & Sebastian’s theme” on repeat. While Dustin O’Halloran’s Lion, brings the intensity. I haven’t stray away from my gut, and giving this to “La La Land”.

Best Original Song – Motion Picture: “Can’t Stop the Feeling” – “Trolls”; “City of Stars” – “La La Land”; “Faith” – “Sing”; “Gold” – “Gold”; “How Far I’ll Go” – “Moana”

Who We Think Will Win: We have “Can’t Stop the Feeling” by Justin Timberlake, which is played nonstop on the radio. A fan favorite “How Far I’ll Go”, which makes you motivated and wanting to do something with your life. But “City of Stars” is something new, something we’ve all been wanting. Wanting the lights on us, something everyone wants, something we all want; in the end of the day we all want our dreams to come true. Trust me, listen to it, you won’t be able to stop. Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone’s voice mix well together and sounds so raw and true.

Best Motion Picture – Animated: “Kubo and the Two Strings”; “Moana”; “My Life as a Zucchini”; “Sing”, “Zootopia”

Who We Think Will Win: We have two Disney movies going head to head, Moana and Zootopia. Moana was beautiful, but it wasn’t the best picture I’ve seen. While Zootopia was memorable, much more than just animals trying to get along. You have to look under the surface and there’s a true meaning there. Meanwhile, “Kubo and the Two Strings” has been on the circuit, critics love this movie. And I’ve heard that is one of the most beautiful movies to watch, especially due to the graphics. We are going with “Kubo”.
