my picks for tonight’s 89th Academy Awards (the Oscars for 2016’s films)

Update:

Winners are now indicated. I correctly guessed 11 out of the 24 categories, which is slightly better than last year, when I guessed 10 out of 24.

Previous 02.26.17:

I’ve now seen as many of the nominated films as I will be able to before tonight’s ceremony, and here finally are my educated guesses about who will take home each award — projected winners are Xed at the lefthand side. Keep in mind: those Xes don’t represent whom I think should win Oscars but whom I think will win, based on what little I can grasp about how the Academy thinks. I’ve also noted which nominees I think should win. Kindly note that this is not necessarily my take on who did the best performance/writing/FX/whatever of the year, but whom I think is best among the nominees.

I have not noted a “should win” for the feature documentary category,

Henson opted for a blue velvet Alberta Ferretti dress, which featured a thigh-high slit.

Oscars 2017: Full list of winners – as they happen
Sunday’s 89th Academy Awards are underway at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

Barry Jenkins and Tarell Alvin McCraney took to the stage at the Dolby Theatre in a popular adapted screenplay win for Moonlight as the drama earned its second win of the night.

Moments earlier Kenneth Lonergan accepted the original screenplay award for Manchester By The Sea in the film’s first prize. Ben Affleck and Matt Damon – winners of this award for Good Will Hunting 19 years ago – presented the honour to Lonergan. Damon was a producer on the film.

Meryl Streep used her Oscar show platform to pay subtle homage to the unifying power of film when she joined Javier Bardem on stage at the Dolby Theatre to present the cinematography award.

Truth is hard to reveal,” Streep said, “but when it happens on the movie screen filmgoers no matter where they are from, feel their hearts soar.”

Greg P. Russell, a re-recording mixer on Michael Bay’s 13 Hours, is out of the Oscars race — a day before the awards ceremony on Sunday. The Academy announced Saturday in a press release that it is rescinding his nomination for best sound mixing for violating campaign regulations.

According to The Academy, the Board of Governors determined Russell communicated with his fellow members of the Sound Branch Executive Committee during the nominations phase to make them aware of his work on the film. This violates official campaign rules, which state “contacting Academy members by

Academy Rescinds Sound Mixing Oscar Nomination for Violation of Campaign Regulations
The Academy announced on Saturday, the day before Oscar Sunday, that Greg P. Russell’s sound mixing nomination for “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” has been revoked for “violation of Academy campaign regulations.” Gary Summers, Jeffrey J. Haboush and Mac Ruth remain sound mixing nominees for the film.

“The decision was prompted by the discovery that Russell had called his fellow members of the Sound Branch during the nominations phase to make them aware of his work on the film, in direct violation of a campaign regulation that prohibits telephone lobbying,” the release said.

Academy strips sound mixer of nomination on eve of ceremony
Governors act on recommendation of sound branch executive committee.

Greg P Russell, who worked on Michael Bay’s war film 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi, has been removed from the list of sound mixing nominees for an alleged violation of Academy campaign regulations.

The action is in direct violation of campaign regulations that prohibit telephone lobbying.

An additional nominee from the film will not replace Russell. The remaining sound mixing nominees from the film are Gary Summers, Jeffrey J. Haboush and Mac Ruth.

Exclusive: Inside the Star-Studded Oscar Nominees Luncheon and Class Photo
Et was there as the Oscars countdown officially began at the annual nominees luncheon on Monday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.

This year's nominees numbered 167, and they squeezed together for the traditional class photo, which was full of so many esteemed professionals that even Denzel Washington was impressed.

"I was talking to one person and said, 'This is actually my eighth [Oscars luncheon],'" Washington told Et. "The guy next to me says, 'It's my 21st.'"

The guy next to Washington was sound mixer Andy Nelson, who has won twice before.

"I was just excited to be a part of it," said two-time nominee Pharrell Williams, who dressed casual in a sweatshirt and jeans. "It was pretty cool."

‘Art Has No Borders’ at Academy’s Annual Oscar Nominees Luncheon
At the annual Oscar Nominees Luncheon Monday, Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs couldn’t help but take note of the “empty chairs” in the room. Absentees like “The Salesman” director Asghar Farhadi, as well as the subjects of short documentary nominee “The White Helmets,” have been in limbo and expected to miss this year’s ceremony due to Donald Trump’s executive order barring entry from residents of seven predominantly Muslim countries.

“There is a struggle globally today over artistic freedom that feels more urgent than at any time since the 1950s,” Isaacs said. “Art has no borders. Art has no language and doesn’t belong to a single faith … Just as our work does not stop at borders, borders cannot be allowed to stop any of us.”

21 Days Until Oscars: Oscar's Perennial Bridesmaids

Kevin O'Connell, 21 nominations to date21 days until Oscar! Since 21 is the magic number of the day we must note that two contenders this year, Andy Nelson and Kevin O'Connell, competing against each other in Sound Mixing, are both on their 21st nomination. (Take that Meryl with your 20!) Nelson, who seems likely to win for La La Land has already won two Oscars for Saving Private Ryan (1998) and Les Misérables (2012). O'Connell is still waiting for that elusive win. He must be frustrated and his tux must be well worn by now.
