Here are the betting odds for the 90th Academy Awards

Jimmy Kimmel Oscars 2018

Jimmy Kimmel Oscars 2018

Whatever happens at the Academy Awards in Los Angeles this Sunday night, it can't be as bad as previous year.

One of the few films to garner a 99 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, top critics: HuffPo, Vanity Faire and Fandango, are all forecasting a last minute upset that could anoint "Get Out" with the Oscar's highest honor.

Which ought to make me a natural in this anti-expertise age, right?

"I'm clumsily trying to get a selfie going, and to my left it's like, 'Hey, do you want me to take the photo?' and I look and it's Meryl Streep offering to take the photo", Ferreira says.

1939 - The academy officially begins using the nickname "Oscar" for its awards. Even more - 73% - make no choice for Best Supporting Actor. Took every bit of my energy to not walk out of the theater. I thought it was a well done movie.

Michael Jackson once paid $2.6 million to snag the 1939 best picture gong for Gone With The Wind and (despite being an Oscar-winner himself) Steven Spielberg shelled out $866,607 for Clark Gable's Best Actor award for It Happened One Night. "The female-driven films get nominated, but rarely win." - JB. Alicia Vikander won her Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in 2016 in a canary yellow Louis Vuitton creation that gave off major Belle vibes, while Lupita Nyong'o also took home the coveted statuette in a Cinderella-like flowy Prada ball gown in 2014.

Penn State's Saquon Barkley a Jets fan who could be a Giant
If you discount the idea of trading down, which I think they have to be aware of, especially given the quarterback rush this year. By the end of sophomore year at Penn State, Barkley was a star, rushing for 1,496 yards on 272 carries and 18 touchdowns.

Many critics are now predicting that "The Shape of Water" may win Best Picture at the Oscars this year. It's fantastic to see the dark comic book adaptation Logan recognised in the adapted category, but it's unlikely to win; that honour will likely go to Call Me By Your Name, written by James Ivory from Andre Aciman's book. I think the win will go to Alison Janney for her performance as Tonya Harding's mother Lavona Fay Golden in the irresistibly madcap I, Tonya.

Most believe del Toro to be the best fit for Best Director since he successfully turned a narrative about a mute custodian employee and a humanoid-amphibian creature into one of the most captivating love stories out there. Until now she has always been CJ from The West Wing, but thanks to Craig Gillespie's film she'll now be seen in a whole new - if slightly terrifying - light. "And I hope she wins more in her career" -TT. Willem Dafoe has 5.5-to-1 odds to win it for his role in "The Florida Project".

2009 - Kathryn Bigelow becomes the first woman to win a best director Oscar, for "The Hurt Locker". SB notes that Wind River should have been nominated. The other two nominees - "Lady Bird" and "The Post" will be shut out.

But who will actually win? The script for Three Billboards has biting dialogue and a nicely constructed plot. One imagines that as well as firing everyone involved in that memorable disaster, they'll have quadruple-checked everything before those envelopes are opened this year.

"I said that Jordan deserves it, Jordan deserves it", Kaluuya says, recalling the conversation. He's up against some stiff competition so I won't be shocked if he doesn't win but he's my definite SHOULD win.

Joe and TT abstain in this category. Original screenplay, I'm going for "Get Out". 2017 was a great year in film and the nominees definitely reflect this. "Horror films rarely pick up little gold men, and I could be basing [my best picture] pick on my own fondness for Get Out: - DL". The Academy could still surprise us! I honestly can not explain why [Deakins] has not won before. Dunkirk should get sound editing, and Blade Runner 2049 - sadly overlooked elsewhere - should get cinematography. "AND they should also probably bring out about 10 other Oscar statues to make up for one of the most criminally overlooked nominees in the history of the academy".
