I suspect Hollywood will tee off on the President so I may not watch the whole Oscars show Sunday night but I do I love the movies and though I don’t always see the all the Academy Award favorites (cuz I’m an action oriented kinda guy), this year I have seen 4 of the 9 films nominated for best movie each of them were quite different one from another but they all were great.

So who will win? Who is the smart money on? The gambling site PaddyPower.com makes the odds:

--"La La Land," 1/5 (favorite)
--"Moonlight," 11/2
--"Manchester By the Sea," 16/1
