Oscars 2017: BuzzHub Predicts The Nominations

This year’s Academy Award nominations will be announced in LA (LA LAND) tomorrow morning, so we’ve assembled a list of what we expect will appear on the list’s most important categories.

There are some central quandaries that will define the state of this year’s Oscars. Will voters embrace Nocturnal Animals as the HFPA (under suspected bribery from director Tom Ford) did? Will enough voters actually pick Deadpool for Best Picture? Will Birth of a Nation be totally excluded from proceedings? What about Loving?
