2018 Oscar Predictions: THE SCREENPLAYS (September) – Call Me By Your Name, The Post Lead

Call Me By Your Name maintains a solid lead in Adapted Screenplay but Last Flag Flying inches up a few more points, it remains a solid #2. Mudbound and The Death of Stalin hold on to top 5 status as well. The curious case of Darkest Hour though keeps it in play here. Although I received confirmation that the screenplay would be submitted as Original (it was written before the book tie-in was) most of the Gold Rush Gang see a future for it here. It’s not surprising; last season saw two major category swaps – Loving and Moonlight – with the latter’s move securing its Oscar win. The Disaster Artist, the film about the making of the cult film The Room, is picking up serious steam. It jumps from #11 to #7 this month.

Hostiles makes a big jump after its Telluride premiere. Wonder Woman and Stronger make their first marks on the chart and The Beguiled rebounds.

These are the official 2018 Oscar Predictions for September in Adapted Screenplay from the Gold Rush Gang. Keep an eye on all of the Gold Rush Gang’s 2018 Oscar predictions updated LIVE throughout the month.

You Were Never Really Here

The Post (The Papers last month) holds onto the top spot but oh so barely. Get Out is now just a single point behind the Meryl Streep/Steven Spielberg collaboration. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri bounces back big time this month to land in the top 5. Raves from Venice have given rise to the Martin McDonagh dramedy across the board. Darkest Hour debuts here with two votes. I’ve hedged my bets for the moment and gave it votes in both Adapted and Original until we have final word. The Florida Project dips a bit even though this seems like one the film’s best shots at a nomination outside of Willem Dafoe. The big move this month though is Lady Bird which goes from a quiet debut last month to a solid #7 that is sure to keep going up.

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.
