Today's US film critic Brian Trout predicts who will take Oscar's home this year and who really deserves it.

This is a real life (not just fantasy): The Queen opens a TV show at a Sunday academic prize.

Instead of a traditional 20-minute host of jokes from the host (because there are no Oscars this year), expect a rock and roll start at the show awards (ABC, 8 ET / 5 PT).

"If you've ever heard the Queen's music, I think it will be something that will invite you in a really great way," says producer Glenn Weiss. "Music is so famous that it has become a truly great way for us to open the show and not to be traditional as ordinary awards and to depend on such things as a monologue. "

So what can we expect? There will be plenty of music, producers say (though not Kendrick Lamar) .And although the host (formerly Kevin Hart, as long as it did not fall in December), as a rule, he strongly rests in the current events in the monologue at the discovery, it is also possible but it would have been less politically sensitive to the show.

"Politics was part of the show for a long time. We can not really control what the winners say, but what we can do is control the general situation of the story of what we want to say, "says Donna Hilotti, producer. "We want to say that it was an amazing, comprehensive year in the movie."

Inevitably, the results of Oscars this year are threatened by controversy, from headache to the decision of the Academy to release four less star awards from the live show – only to add them after a mass protest.

Today, manufacturers say that the addition of these awards back was not a major breakthrough.

"Things are happening and changing all the time between nominations and (shows)," says Weiss. "The part of the live television show is adapting and making changes. We spend the last month since the nominations have changed things you may have heard and so many things you have not heard yet."
