LOS ANGELES, Feb 26 (Reuters) – The red carpet has been rolled out and the champagne is on ice for Hollywood’s big night on Sunday, but the biggest
Yankees Apparel question may not be who will win but how much politics will

The movie industry’s premier celebration gets underway torn between escapism and reality. The conflict is reflected in the wide range of best picture Oscar
Value Buy hopefuls and an awards season marked by fiery outbursts from Hollywood A-listers on immigration, civil rights and the rhetoric of US President Donald Trump.

Ahead of what may be the most political Oscars in recent memory, hundreds of police and private security personnel braved early rain on Sunday to seal the security zone around the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. Two protests are scheduled to take place outside the security perimeter.

With a leading 14 nominations, romantic musical “La La Land” looks set to dance
Personalized Baseball Gears away with an armful of Academy Awards, including best picture, for its love letter to artistic ambition and Los Angeles itself.

“It’s a movie that has a powerful emotional pull and the most emotional movies tend to do best at the Oscars. This one has an infectious enthusiasm and spirit that is irresistible,” said Tom O’Neil, founder of awards website Goldderby.com.

If fantasy prevails, “La La Land,” starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone as a struggling actress and jazz pianist, would be the first musical to win best picture

Black coming-of-age tale “Moonlight” is also expected to do well in a year that produced a record seven nominations for actors of color and film stories that ranged from overlooked African-American female math geniuses (“Hidden Figures”) to interracial marriage (“Loving”), Indian street children (“Lion”) and
MLB black incarceration rates in modern US society (“13th”).

“If anything is a dark horse winner on Sunday, it would be ‘Hidden Figures’,” said
Women’s Authentic Personalized New York Yankees Home White Baseball Jersey Variety awards writer Tim Gray.

“It’s a good thing for diversity and it’s doing well at the box office, and that is the really important thing,” Gray said.

A SEASON OF PROTEST

Hollywood however has more on its mind than movie making. After strongly opposing the election of Trump as president, celebrities have used the spotlight at earlier award shows to denounce the Republican’s hardline stances on immigration, transgender rights and the media.

Iranian Oscar-nominated director Asghar Farhadi is boycotting Sunday’s ceremony because of Trump’s bid to ban travelers from seven majority Muslim nations.

The directors of all five Oscar-nominated foreign language films on Friday denounced what they called a “climate of fanaticism and nationalism” in the United States and elsewhere.

Late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, who is hosting Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony, is not expected to go down that road.

“I don’t think it will be very political,” he told trade publication Variety last week of his opening monologue. But “there will be some element of that to the show.”

Yet in a live show, with a worldwide audience of hundreds of millions, there is no telling what dozens of stars may say and do on the red carpet or when collecting their Oscar statuettes.

“I don’t think it’s going to be three hours of bashing Donald Trump. I think there will be a lot of generalities – pleas for tolerance and acceptance,” said Gray.

The spectacle kicks off with the famous parade of nominees and celebrities on the red carpet, which may remain covered with plastic tarps although rain is not forecast for the afternoon.

In some pre-show drama, Meryl Streep on Saturday accused designer Karl Lagerfeld of spoiling her night at the Academy Awards ceremony by falsely accusing her of being paid to wear a gown on the Oscars red carpet.

“The story was picked up globally, and continues, globally, to overwhelm my appearance at the Oscars, on the occasion of my record breaking 20th nomination, and to eclipse this honor in the eyes of the media, my colleagues and the audience,” Streep, 67, said in a statement.
