SAG Noms: Where is the Race Now?

The Screen Actors Guild nominations gave us another piece of the Oscar puzzle today. Some of it made things much clearer while some of it made an already wild season even wilder. What we can do though is really begin to build a picture and a path to the Oscars for individual films and performances. This is the first real ...

2018 Oscars: Final Predictions for the Foreign Language Film Shortlist

It’s been an exciting 10 weeks during which we analyzed almost 30 films in the Foreign Language Film Oscar race, a number that represents around 30% of the total films in contention. These 30 films included some of the highest-profile and most obscure films vying for the noms, and represented countries from Latin America, Europe, Africa and Asia. While it’s ...

2018 Oscar Predictions: SOUND EDITING and SOUND MIXING (December Part 1)

As we saw in Film Editing and Cinematography, Dunkirk continues to dominate the tech categories and Sound Editing and Sound Mixing is no different. Blade Runner 2049 is still runner-up in both of those as well and there is very little movement in either category at this time. They will likely remain so until the two major sound guilds, the ...

2018 Oscar Predictions: PRODUCTION DESIGN and COSTUME DESIGN (December Part 1)

Blade Runner 2049 and Phantom Thread lead the Production Design and Costume Design predictions, respectively, once again and with a stranglehold on those #1 spots. Dunkirk and Darkest Hour swap places and Downsizing is the month’s sole debut in Production Design. Costume Design has even less change, with Wonder Woman inching up and Murder on the Orient Express inching down. ...

The Florida Project, Lady Bird and Baby Driver pop up in Film Editing as debuts this month. Very little movement in Cinematography this month; The Post moves ...

We’re just about a week away from the announcement of the nine finalists for Foreign Language Film so this will be our last predictions for the shortlist. Israel’s Foxtrot still leads our chart to make that shortlist with Russia’s Loveless and France’s BPM remaining in 2nd and 3rd place. Sweden’s The Square makes a considerable move from #8 to #4 ...

2018 Oscar Predictions: ANIMATED FEATURE (December Part 1)

Disney/Pixar’s Coco remains atop the chart for Animated Feature this month, as it has every month. The Breadwinner stays solid at #2 and although The LEGO Batman Movie stays at #3 it is gaining in points. It’s up from 19 last month to 26 this month. The Annie nominations were announced earlier this week where Coco and The Breadwinner led ...

2018 Oscar Predictions: THE SCREENPLAYS (December Part 1)

Call Me By Your Name remains atop the Adapted Screenplay list and really, why wouldn’t it? Not only is it a major Best Picture contender but the dearth of competition here makes it such lock that it’s almost pointless to pretend anything else will overtake it. The top four here are pretty solid, making the #5 quite open to just ...
