Oscar 2017 Winner Predictions: Production Design


We’re at that point in our rolling Oscar prediction coverage when fatigue inevitably turns to exasperation. It certainly doesn’t help that the near-clean sweep that La La Land looks to achieve on Oscar night is difficult to have to rationalize in one tech category after another without beating a dead horse. It’s why, two days ago, Eric Henderson tried to get away with a two-line assessment of the best editing race that consisted of an obscure reference to an interlude from Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation that prominently features the word “edit” in it (a remnant of said reference remains in yesterday’s published piece). It’s also why I wanted to roll with nothing more than “LOL, La La Land” for today’s column. But that would’ve been as lazy as the likely outcome of this race. As such, see below for a still from Hail, Caesar!

Will Win: La La Land

Could Win: Arrival

Should Win: Hail, Caesar!
