..as we wait for the awards to be announced.
By Quinn McDowell and Caleb Stuart
On Sunday, Feb. 26, the Oscar winners will be announced. “La La Land” is a frontrunner with 14 nominations. However, it is not the one great film of the year. Other great movies include “Hacksaw Ridge,” “Fences,” and “Hidden Figures.”
The three big Oscars of the night are Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Actress. Legend High School took a survey regarding the three big Oscars. In the survey, “La La Land” took Best Actor and Best Actress. “Hidden Figures” took Best Picture in the survey.
Other awards will be given through the night, including Best Director, Best Cinematography, and Best Film Editing.
“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” was a successful movie and addition to the Star Wars Galaxy. It has been nominated for Best Sound Mixing and Best Visual Effects.
“Zootopia” has been nominated for Best Animated Feature, while the successful sequel “Finding Dory” was snubbed for any Oscars.
While some fans may think that this year was a bad year for movies, with the failure of movies that people thought would be good, this year has been successful for films. The Oscar nominees deserve awards in each of their categories, but at the end of the night, there is only one winner.
