The M&M Report Predicts the 2017 Oscars

LaLaLand.jpeg

Few things in life are predictable anymore…but Devin and I are trying anyway. Here are our respective ballots, compiled separately. (Two M&M Report episodes worth listening to before the show: our knock-down-drag-out fight over La La Land, and our Oscar preview with discussions of six other nominated films.)

And the winners on Sunday night’s show, starting at 8:30 p.m., will be:
