The Oscars 2017 Predictions

The Oscars 2017 Predictions

Hollywood’s most glamorous day is almost here. The 89th Academy Awards ceremony on ABC starting at 5:30 P.M. ( Pacific Time) hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. Once again it is time for me to take my Brunello Cucinelli tuxedo out of the garment bag. Lace up my Corthay Arca patent leather derby shoes, and venture to the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. Where I prance the Red Carpet and mingle with all the elegant celebrities.  Who Am I kidding? I will be on the sofa with my comfortable t-shirt and shorts on. This is a day to do nothing except gander at the wonderful invention known as the television. The festivities begin early in the morning over on the E channel. Where we can be informed on everything that happens on this fantastic day. From what is inside those glorious gift bags that the stars receive. Even finding out what Wolfgang Puck has created and serving for dinner at the fabulous  after party.

Without further delay here are my predictions on all twenty four categories. Last year I had fourteen right. I hope to improve on that this year. So feel free to print this out and play along with me. Let me know how you did by tweeting me @chilihb
