Oscars 2016: Who’s Going to Win, Who Should Win

Our predictions for who’s going home with the gold — and who really deserves it

Oscars; WhiteOscars; White

The scandal! The insult! infamy! Turning Oscar 2016 into a Whites-Only affair means the Academy will take the red-carpet walk of shame on Feb. 28th. How could it not since people are mad as hell that there's not a single person of color among the 20 acting nominees. Oscar voters got a pass last year when they did the exact the same stupid thing. But this time it's personal. Spike Lee, Will Smith and wife Jada are among those calling for a boycott. Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs quickly announced reforms to "begin  the process of significantly changing our membership composition." Translation: It's mostly old white dudes.

Meanwhile, we get to shift through those who are nominated in the major categories, looking for frontrunners and spoilers and leaving some space to bitch about the snubs. Party on. Here are our picks for will win in the six major categories — and who we think should be going home a winner.
