Going for the full La La Land sweep.

It is nominated for 14, it would have to win 12 to break the record, but it can only win 13 because it's nominated twice in the song category.  (Is that correct?)  I certainly don't think it's going to break the record (I give it zero chance for Ryan Gosling and Best Original Screenplay).

All I know is this is the first time since 2008 (2007 movies), which was the first time in life, where my favorite film of the year was actually the Oscar front-runner.  For one Oscar season, I get to NOT be the film snob of the office.

I guess I misspoke, as I'm "only" predicting 11 wins. You're wrong to give it 0 chance in screenplay, it's a pretty open category. I'm predicting it only misses Gosling and mixing.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

"The Oscar-winning film Suicide Squad..."

That's a real phrase. A real, valid phrase.
