2017 Oscar Predictions: THE SCREENPLAYS (September)

Not a lot of movement in Adapted Screenplay from last month, other than Love and Friendship hitting the top 5 for the first time, displacing Sully, which falls off entirely. Nocturnal Animals shows some strength on the back of its great reviews at Venice and Toronto. Lion holds on with a single vote of confidence. Original Screenplay, on the other ...

2017 Oscar Predictions: BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS (September)

Michelle Williams (Manchester by the Sea) is not ready to relinquish her crown just yet but Naomie Harris (Moonlight) is sure getting close. She moves up another two points putting her and Williams within spitting distance of each other for the top spot. With Moonlight‘s incredible response at Telluride (and future festivals, to be sure), Harris could end up on ...

2017 Oscar Predictions: BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR (September)

Finally, some big changes in Supporting Actor! Well, not with #1 – Liam Neeson (Silence) still holds a perfect score of 50 there despite feeling more and more like a placeholder as we wait…and wait…and wait from Paramount to give Silence a poster, a trailer, a release date…anything. No, the big news is that the rest of the top 5 ...

2017 Oscar Predictions: BEST ACTRESS (September)

Viola Davis (Fences) continues to reign with a perfect score of 50 from the Gold Rush Gang once again this month. This, despite completely unsubstantiated ‘rumors’ that Paramount might be pushing her in supporting. It’s. Not. Going. To. Happen. Davis won the Tony for this role in Lead, not Supporting like her predecessor. She has been very outspoken that her ...

2017 Oscar Predictions: BEST ACTOR (September)

As we saw with Best Picture and Best Director, we see in Best Actor for Nate Parker (The Birth of a Nation). He was #1 last month and now he’s down to #7 and barely hanging on. But again, these predictions for him and his film are purely reactions and gut feelings based on August and could change if the ...

2017 Oscar Predictions: BEST DIRECTOR (September)

The Best Director list looks mostly like last month in terms of who’s still in, save Nate Parker (The Birth of a Nation) who falls off the chart completely, but bridesmaid Ang Lee (Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk) finally breaks through to land at #1 for the first time this year. But, as with Best Picture, it’s Damien Chazelle and ...

2017 Oscar Predictions: BEST PICTURE (September)

Boy, can a lot change in a month. Last month, The Birth of a Nation was tied with Silence at #2 for Best Picture but with the fallout of his 1999 rape controversy being at the forefront of the film’s press and Parker handling it quite disastrously (as is Fox Searchlight) the film plummets this month. As always, our predictions ...

2017 Oscar Predictions: ANIMATED FEATURE (August)

The Animated Feature Oscar race is pretty competitive this year. While our #1 prediction, Moana, hasn’t even come out yet, what we’ve seen of it from the trailer and stills and that Emmy, Grammy and Tony winner Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton) is doing original songs for the film (hello, EGOT) is enough to sell us on it as the film to ...
