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
MUAHS – Makeup and Hairstyling (Star Trek Beyond v Suicide Squad)
WGA – Screenplays
CDG – Costumes (Will Jackie become the first winner here without a Production Design nom since Elizabeth: The Golden Age?)
Actor (Denzel Washington v Casey Affleck)
Supporting Actor (Mahershala Ali v Dev Patel)
Foreign Language Film (Toni Erdmann v The Salesman)
Documentary Feature (OJ v 13TH)
