The Dolby Theater at Hollywood & Highland Center is now home to the Oscars, but that wasn't always the case. Many predictions for the Oscar winners stem from an overwhelming sense that whatever film dominates previous awards shows (the SAG Awards, Golden Globes, etc.) will more than likely be the victor, though this isn't always the case.
