The big nine:

Best Screenplay, Adapted-- Moonlight
Cinematography-- LaLa Land
Animated Feature-- Zootopia
Art Direction-- LaLa Land
Original Song-- City of Stars from LaLa Land

Here are the not that easy rest:
Here are the next to impossible to call:
Animated Short-- Piper (but it could be any of them)
At least I got one right regarding the shorts. Still couldn't care less.
