The Gold Rush Gang is Predicting ‘La La Land’ to Win 10 Oscars

While nearly everyone worth their weight in Oscar predicting is in agreement that La La Land will win Best Picture, Director, Actress and Sound Mixing, the Gold Rush Gang feels pretty secure that it will pick up six more at the 89th Academy Awards. That will put it just one below the all-time record of 11 Oscars which is currently held by three films: Ben-Hur (1959), Titanic (1997) and The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King (2003).

10 Oscars is nothing to shake a stick at, to be sure. That puts it in alongside another musical, West Side Story (1961). La La Land‘s 14 nominations, however, beats West Side Story‘s 11 and puts the modern-day musical in the same category as the above-mentioned Titanic and All About Eve (1950) for the most of all time. Titanic won 11, while All About Eve won just 6. It’s probably fair to say that La La Land will fall somewhere in between there.

Full predictions and rankings and where La La Land has real competition:

Picture, Director, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor & Actress

Original & Adapted Screenplay, Film Editing, Cinematography, Production and Costume Design

Makeup & Hairstyling, Original Score and Song, Sound Editing & Mixing and Visual Effects

Animated & Documentary Feature, Foreign Language Film, Short Films (Documentary, Animated, Live-Action)

About Erik Anderson

Erik blames his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched them together since he opened his eyes. They also watched Miss Universe religiously every year (the pageantry!) and Erik came to the conclusion that the combination of these two things ultimately led him down the path to obsessing about awards and ACTRESSING. He began at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association), the International Press Academy and is the founder/editor of AwardsWatch.
