WWE Studios, the filmmaking division of World Wrestling Entertainment, is expected by Hollywood pundits to sweep the 88th Annual Academy Awards tonight.
Although up against tough competition including The Revenant, Room, and Spotlight, most film critics believe the Best Picture award will almost certainly go to 12 Rounds 3: Lockdown, the cinematic triumph starring Dean Ambrose.
In the Best Actor category, long-shots Leonardo DiCaprio and Matt Damon could snag a surprise win, but the odds-on favorite is Mike “The Miz” Mizanin for his career-defining portrayal of Jake Carter in The Marine 4: Moving Target.
WWE Studios has amassed more than three-dozen Oscars over its 14-year history, for cinematic triumphs such as See No Evil, Knucklehead, and Scooby-Doo WrestleMania Mystery.
Hollywood is already abuzz about next year’s Academy Awards, which will almost certainly be swept by part two of The Chaperone Trilogy, starring renowned thespian Hunter Hearst Helmsley.
