Fearless Oscar Picks 2017

Update: only got 14 right this year (correct pick in bold) - my worst year ever. Though, considering that I saw the guys from La La Land accept Best Picture can I at least get partial credit?

It’s a sweep mostly for La La Land, which I thought was amazing (better than Lion and Hidden Figures, the two other Best Picture nominees I’ve actually seen). Picking Denzel Washington over Casey Affleck in what is surely a close race.
