Oscars 2017 are just a few hours away, and the town is already buzzing with predictions and “La La Land,” being the top favorite to scoop the awards. We will look at few things which are predicted to be happening for sure on Sunday night, 26 February 2016.

Mentioning Donald Trump in Oscar 2017

Believe it or not but it’s for sure that Donald Trump will be mentioned in some of the speeches which will be delivered by stars. It’s been five weeks since the inauguration of the president but the nation is still divided over the policies and actions of their president, and it is believed that Hollywood stars will also have their say when they take the biggest stage.

Meryl Streep was the first among all the stars who took the stage of Golden Globes seven weeks ago to speak about Donald Trump which surely gave license to other stars to speak out. Donald Trump then tweeted to show his frustration. We shall see who will be the next one to speak “for” or “against” Trump with Jimmy Kimmel the favorite to mention the US president in the opening moments of awards just like he did in Emmy Awards

Jimmy Kimmel in the Spotlight

Jimmy Kimmel has been running his show successfully for the last 14 years. He has hosted American Music Awards and last year he also hosted the Emmy Awards. Now for the first time, he will be hosting the Oscars. It is certain that a few cool things are expected from Kimmel

A show of Diversity

After two years of whites dominating the Oscars where no “non-white” actor made it to nominees, this year three out of four trophies could be won by “non-white” actors

If Mahershala, Viola, and Denzel secured the Oscar award, the post-Oscars photo hug would be dominated by “non – white” stars for the first time

'La La Land' to Steal the Oscar Show?

The musical sensation has already ensured their presence in the records by getting record 14 nominations but in reality, how many they can win?

It’s a tricky question because despite dominating the nominations, they still have to face the heat from other movies.

11 is the highest number of Oscars which was only achieved by three movies; "Titanic," "Ben-Hur" and "The Lord of the Rings." Although the hype about “La La Land” has cooled down still, it's tipped to win in double digits

A new entry in the PEGOT?
