OSCAR WATCH: Critics Choice Predictions

There are many journalists who like to downplay the importance of the often dubious Broadcast Film Critics Association. But when they hand out their awards in tomorrow night's ceremony, it could signal both the beginning and the end for several individual Oscar races. Indeed, the group has prided themselves on being the best Oscar predictors on the awards circuit and that has certainly been proven over the years. As such, I'm expecting "La La Land" to win the lion's share of awards tomorrow, on its way to a sweep of the major precursors. Tune in tomorrow night on A&E to see if I'm right.
