My predictions: 4/5, picking “The Jungle Book” over “13 Hours”
My ballot: Come back in February!
The nominees: Arrival, Hacksaw Ridge, La La Land, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi
Four of these nominees were expected, marking one of just two bids for “Rogue One” and another nomination for the well-recognized “Arrival,” “Hacksaw Ridge,” and “La La Land.” And then we have a film from out of nowhere – “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” – which I feel like was released years ago and still haven’t seen. Not much to write home about here!
My current bet to win: I think La La Land can win this.
