Predicting the winners at the Academy Awards can be fun sometimes, particularly those years when the general public has actually seen some of the films nominated.
Here’s another bold Oscar prediction courtesy of “Hamilton” actor Brandon Victor Dixon, who believes calling out audience member Mike Pence from the stage and reading a prepared statement constituted a “conversation.” He’s guessing … wait for it … there will be a political speech or two at this year’s Academy Awards.

Is there any reason to watch unless you’re a liberal counting on another several anti-Trump speeches?
who cares, almost no one between the two coastal ranges will be watching

The only people they'll be lecturing to are the liberals watching; cross sectional audience is gone.

I think that might give the Oscars the lowest rating ever.

At this point, the Academy would probably consider the lowest television ratings ever a big win — leave the masses to enjoy their football and mixed martial arts.
