Chris’ ‘The Oscars 2016’ Predictions

Feb 25, 2016

February 28th is almost here. Time to hit the grocery store the day before to get your chips, dips, and refreshing liquids to quench your thirst. Why? Well this is the Super Bowl of the Entertainment field. You can wake up on Sunday and watch the E! entertainment channel all day. From the early morning you can find out what  is in the glorious gift bags to what Wolfgang Puck has cooked up for his big elegant post Oscars party. Then come around mid afternoon we will finally see Ryan Seacrest hit the Red Carpet with Giuliana Rancic as they visit with everyone who is anyone in Hollywood. Let us not forget the Fashion Police, who will be criticizing everyone, and the glorious three hundred and sixty degree camera that will let you see every fabulous stitch from all the top designers.  Are you ready? I know I am. So here are my glorious picks in all 24 categories.
