Having grown up in a movie family my love for Hollywood film runs deep. There's something magical about movies that brings so much joy. They have the power to transform emotions in a heartbeat. They give us opportunities to expand our horizons, and least of all, they connect us to a whole new world outside our own - for two plus hours you become someone else. It's exciting. It's exhilarating. It's awe-inspiring. I look forward to this award show every year! I'm a huge fan of our host Jimmy Kimmel as well. Undoubtedly, he will bring some mockery to the table, mingled with some hilarious skits (hopefully).
Here's a little something to fill the cup of anticipation. Oh, you better believe "we're all about a good time." (I just hope they keep politics at bay. This is an award show, NOT a political rally!)
(But if it were up to me I'd pick Manchester by the Sea. LOVE that movie!)
Best Director: Damien Chazelle
Best Actor: Denzel Washington
(But I really, really, REALLY want Casey Affleck to win for Manchester by the Sea. He KILLED it!)
Best Actress: Emma Stone
(If it were up to me, though, I'd give the award to Natalie Portman for Jackie #slayed)
Best Supporting Actor: Mahershala Ali
(Though, I think the award should go to Dev Patel for Lion)

Best Animation: Zootopia
(Seriously, Disney was on fire last year!)
Best Costume Design: La La Land
