The 2017 Oscars hosted by Jimmy Kimmel airs Sunday, February 26 on ABC. The 89th Academy Awards will broadcast live from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California and the 2017 Oscars will be watched by millions of fans around the world. It will be a top three-film competition -- “Moonlight,” “Manchester by the Sea,” and “La La Land” have attracted critics, but it looks like "La La Land" will be the one.

It got awarded the Directors Guild and the Producers Guild trophies. The movie was produced by Marc Platt, Fred Berger, and Jordan Horowitz and written and directed by Damien Chazelle. It is a romantic musical starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling as Mia and Seb who fall deeply in love.

Ryan Gosling plays a jazz pianist whose life takes some unexpected turns as he struggles to make it as a musician in Los Angeles. Emma Watson portraits a down-on-her-luck actress whose bittersweet love affair with Seb is wonderfully convincing. This is the second Academy Award nomination for Ryan Gosling, and as of 2017, Emma Stone also has a second Oscar nomination under her belt. She has won 34 awards from 104 nominations and was named runner-up for five of those nominations.

Fourteen-time nominee La La Land should wind up the big winner

The film has won Best Actor and Actress in a Musical or Comedy, Best Original Score, Best Song, and Best Original Screenplay. Six major nominations and six major wins all went "La La Land," and that's hard to beat. It's even more difficult when you realize that the film has basically been on the top of everyone's lists since it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The $30 million musical has earned more than $125 million in North American theaters. “Moonlight” and “Manchester by the Sea” are likely to be honored in other categories, but on Sunday, February 26 "La La Land" will walk away with Hollywood’s most prestigious prize.

The Directors Guild awards are a good predictor towards a winner.
