① If somebody trips when walking up to receive their award. If the Oscar goes to a performance you thought was garbage, that doesn't mean you watch movies wrong, just as if all of the Academy Awards in a given year go to nominees you loved, it's not proof that your taste is somehow superior to everyone else's.
Last year'sOscars were a bit of a cockup, which is putting it mildly. It is the only time a film from the silent era won best picture, with the award going to World War One romance "Wings".
So while the final award of the night will provide some excitement, the acting awards aren't likely to. Three of these contenders are expected to claim three apiece, one will win a pair of awards and three will take home a single Oscar.

The DGA win makes del Toro a front-runner for best director for "The Shape of Water". By my count, which could be off by a couple, almost 60 movies, short and long, have a shot at an Oscar Sunday night. "The last thing I want to do is ruin that for someone who is, you know, nominated for, you know, best leading actress or best supporting or best director or cinematographer or whatever, by making it unpleasant". "The Shape of Water's" unconventional love story is made more compelling considering the creature loves, accepts and is a friend to those who prove they are good at heart.
Oscar producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd tell USA TODAY that host Jimmy Kimmel's show monologue will hit on politics, but will not be as accutely political as Kimmel has been this year during memorable moments of his talkshow. "They're not conclusive, especially about best picture - that seems to be the biggest question mark of all", he said. I don't know if either will end up being the Best Picture victor when it's announced on Sunday night, however.
"Get Out." Jordan Peele's racially charged horror-comedy was the surprise hit of a year ago, earning widespread critical acclaim and earning $255 million (on a $4.5 million budget). Have your own Oscars statues ready for guests.
Greta Gerwig's solo feature directorial debut - a moving and authentic portrait of a volatile mother-daughter relationship - could see her become only the second woman ever to win the Oscar for best director.
