oscars winners and losers

Predicting the Oscars is like predicting the weather. You can look at the charts and determine the general course of the storm, but it’s impossible to tell if the wind is going to knock a tree through your living room window. Last night’s ceremony was peak Oscars. Everything went exactly how it was supposed to go before finding time to also uproot the oak in your front yard and cave-in one of walls with it.

So let’s talk about the winners and losers of this year’s Academy Awards. Not the actual winners, the people who went home with potentially life-changing statuettes, but the people who walked away from that ceremony looking like a million bucks and those who…didn’t.

Fences Trailer - Denzel Washington

Awards season is heating up, and today we get a better glimpse at what is sure to be one of the key contenders.

Fences is an adaptation of August Wilson‘s play of the same name with Denzel Washington directing, not to mention reprising the role that won him a Tony Award back in 2010 for his performance on Broadway. His stage co-star Viola Davis is also joining him, and if the new Fences trailer is any indicator, the two have clearly delivered Oscar caliber performances that will likely land them nominations when the time comes next year.
