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.
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, »

The 89th Annual Academy Awards kicked off Sunday at Los Angeles' Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood & Highland Center, and as expected, the A-Listers came dressed to impress.
La La Land star Emma Stone wowed in a classy, custom-created Givenchy gown, while Hidden Figures star Taraji P. Henson opted for a blue velvet Alberta Ferretti dress, which featured a thigh-high slit. The men looked just as handsome, with Stone's co-star, Ryan Gosling, sporting a Gucci suit, and Fifty Shades Darker star Jamie Dornan in a cream-colored tuxedo jacket.
And while the red carpet looks were undoubtedly fabulous, all eyes were on the night's big winners. See the full list of everyone who took home a shiny statuette and check back throughout the night for updates!

The 89th Academy Awards are taking place on Sunday, honoring the best in film from the past year.
All eyes will be on “La La Land,” which tied the all-time record with 14 nominations. It’s widely seen as the frontrunner for best picture, and is in the running for top awards like best actor, actress, and director.
Other top competitors include “Arrival” and “Moonlight,” which nabbed eight nominations each. Three films — “Hacksaw Ridge,” “Lion,” and “Manchester by the Sea” — follow those up with six noms apiece.
Every Oscar Best Picture Winner
Jimmy Kimmel hosts the ceremony, which airs live on ABC from the Dolby Theatre. Keep up with an updated winners list below.

For the 89th time, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences - that'd be AMPAS, to its mates - has handed out its world-famous collection of gongs.
The full list of winners from this year's awards? Right here. Jason Statham, you'll notice, was callously snubbed again. What's more, his shark-fighting movie, Meg, won't be out in time for the 90th Oscars either. Sigh. Those that did win? Well, Suicide Squad is now an Oscar-winning movie, picking up as many gongs as Arrival. Hacksaw Ridge also snagged a couple of gongs, whilst Moonlight triumphed. And - after a confusing moment when Warren Beatty read out the wrong winner (not his fault, we might add) - it ultimately upset La La Land and took Best Picture too.
Here's what won. »
Erin Eggers, Chase Hudson and Matthew Porter have launched Penchant with plans for two to three feature films annually for multiple platforms, and two to four scripted TV projects for network and non-traditional outlets.
Heisserer won the Writers Guild of America award on Sunday for writing “Arrival” in the best adapted script category and is nominated for an Oscar in the same category. “The Scrawl” is a one-hour drama series written by “Heroes Reborn” scribe Zach Craley, exploring the aftermath of collective negativity giving birth to an actual monster. South Korean movie “Killer Toon” served as the inspiration for “The Scrawl.”
Penchant developed “The Scrawl” and will executive produce along with South Korea’s Cj Entertainment, which released “Killer Toon.”
Penchant is also developing a »

Let's hear it for the writers!
The Writer's Guild of America held their annual awards show on Sunday night at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, where Barry Jenkins' Moonlight, The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and Donald Glover's breakout series, Atlanta were among those recognized for their achievement of the written word.

The Writers Guild Awards and the Academy writing nominees always don’t line up; many films are ineligible. This year, those included Oscar-writing nominees “Lion” and “The Lobster.”
This year, the WGA and the Academy differed dramatically. While the WGA deemed “Moonlight” and “Loving” as Original Screenplays, the Academy considered both as Adapted; only “Moonlight” landed a nomination.
At the WGA, as at the BAFTAs, Barry Jenkins’ script for “Moonlight” competed for the Original Screenplay Award against both Kenneth Lonergan’s “Manchester by the Sea” and Damien Chazelle’s “La La Land.” Unlike the BAFTAs, Jenkins emerged the winner over Lonergan, a sign of strength for “Moonlight,” which is nominated for eight Oscars.
However, in the Oscars’ Original Screenplay contest, lauded playwright and Oscar-nominated screenwriter Lonergan (“You Can Count On Me, »

Live from New York! And also Los Angeles! It’s the 2017 Writers Guild Awards, honoring the best in writing for television, film and new media. This year’s big winners included some of the season’s most lauded productions — including “Moonlight,” “Arrival,” “Atlanta” and “The Americans.”
While “Moonlight” and “Arrival” will compete against each other in the Adapted Screenplay category at the Oscars, they were entered in the WGA Awards in different categories, allowing both to make off with an award. “The Americans” pulled out a win for Drama Series, while “Atlanta” snapped up both Comedy Series and New Series. Other winners included “Command and Control,” “Saturday Night Live,” “BoJack Horseman” and “This Is Us.”

When talking about success in Hollywood, luck often comes up. And while the whims of the universe certainly have a lot of sway over everything, there is simply no substitution for good, old fashioned hard work. So if you're an aspiring screenwriter, pay attention to Arrival screenwriter Eric Heisserer. His is a classical, head down, put in the work, kind of success story. Before 2016, Heisserer was king of the horror reboot thanks to the hat trick of A Nightmare on Elm Street, Final Destination 5, and The Thing. That also made him the king of seeing what happens when you hand in your pages and then step away from a production. So starting with 2013's Hours, which he also directed, Heisserer sought more control over projects that originated with him (Aka spec...

The glitz, the glamour, the gift baskets that do as much to sway voters as a slaved-over work of art — it’s the 89th Academy Awards! AMPAS unveiled their take on the year that was 2016, which adds up, expectedly, to many of the names and endeavors we’ve seen fêted over the last few months. (We’ve done our part, too, and think you’ll be much better-served following us than them.)
Due to a conscious choice to avoid awards chatter around these here parts, we’re not going to change things up more or less at the last minute. We instead will just get to the list (via Washington Post), which is topped by La La Land with 14 nominations, and so:
