Oscars 2017: Celebrities get busy for red carpet groove

Seven actors are celebrating their first nominations this year: Lion's Dev Patel, Loving's Ruth Negga, Moonlight's Naomie Harris and Mahershala Ali, Manchester by the Sea's Lucas Hedges, Hacksaw Ridge's Andrew Garfield and Elle's Isabelle Huppert. And I think Emma Stone is a done deal.

Beyond that, Axford wants to finalize his picks for Sunday's Oscars and post them online. It basically cleaned up at the Golden Globes, winning everything from best motion picture (musical or comedy) to best director to best screenplay - and more. That would have cleared the way for the deserving Michelle Williams from "Manchester By The Sea". Because he knows the people he'll be joking about, and vice versa, Kimmel will be able to get away with a lot - an opportunity he'll likely take, which would be no surprise to viewers of his Monday-through-Friday showcase.

Cinematography and Editing: The final two categories in which "La La Land" and "Moonlight" are in a serious contest are cinematography and editing.

Ali's win would be a good way to honor "Moonlight" and his acceptance speech when he won this category at the SAGs was one of the highlights of the night. But, once again, never go against the box office or the major studio production against the indie.

Music (Original Song) - "City of Stars" featured in "La La Land".

It's Oscar weekend in Hollywood and "La La Land" is the favourite to win the most awards but still faces some tough competition.

Foreign Language: "Toni Erdmann". This is really a documentary miniseries for TV. Over. Everything. Hugely. The Oscars have served as a touch point for the societal climate, whether it's through the speeches of the victor or through the films that get chosen for specific nods.

Best Animated Feature Film - Inexplicably, "Finding Dory" was not nominated. "Zootopia" made $341 million, while "Moana" took in $244 million. On the technical side look for The Jungle Book to win Best Visual Effects while Star Trek Beyond nets Best Makeup.

A cynical dissection of "Moonlight" claims that the film has checked all the boxes needed to win an Oscar because it's based on a coming-of-age play with a main character who is a minority, gay and broke.
