Oscar Podcast #51: FINAL Oscar Winner Predictions

Well, here we are. The last prediction podcast of the 2016-2017 Oscar season.

I am joined by Gold Rush Gang members Kenneth and Evan for a deep dive into all 24 categories, starting off with the last batch of guilds that announced and using them as the jumping-off points for those Oscar categories.

That carries us into a conversation about Hidden Figures in this race, a film that’s done very well with the guilds even though it has only three Oscar nominations, none of which it’s a frontrunner for.

Then we hit a pair of highly competitive races, Best Actor between Denzel Washington (Fences) and Casey Affleck (Manchester by the Sea) and Best Supporting Actor between Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) and Dev Patel (Lion).

Here is the itinerary/agenda of the podcast.

Last week of guilds:

MPSE – Sound

WGA – Screenplays
CDG – Costumes (Will Jackie become the first winner here without a Production Design nom since Elizabeth: The Golden Age?)

About Erik Anderson

Erik blames his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched them together since he opened his eyes. They also watched Miss Universe religiously every year (the pageantry!) and Erik came to the conclusion that the combination of these two things ultimately led him down the path to obsessing about awards and ACTRESSING. He began at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
