Golden Globe Predictions (Motion Picture): The Post, Call Me By Your Name, Three Billboards, Get Out, Lady Bird and I, Tonya in the fight

The Golden Globes feel more difficult to predict this year than most. With category placements for films like Three Billboards in Drama, Get Out in Comedy and Beatriz at Dinner (which is appealing its Drama ruling) the line of what defines a film’s genre keeps getting muddier each year. The split of the top categories made more sense in the ...

2018 Oscar Predictions: BEST PICTURE (November)

Just as Frances McDormand did in Best Actress, we have a new leader in Best Picture and it’s Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. The margin may be slim (it’s just a single point ahead of Dunkirk) but something impressive to note is that it essentially flip-flopped with The Shape of Water, Fox Searchlight’s other top contender. Last month Dunkirk and ...

2018 Oscar Predictions: BEST DIRECTOR (November)

Christopher Nolan (Dunkirk) holds a commanding lead in Best Director once again, this time free of the tie with Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water), who falls back to #2.

2018 Oscar Predictions: BEST ACTOR (November)

2018 Oscar Predictions: SUPPORTING ACTRESS (November)

If there’s a theme to this category this year it’s all about moms. Good moms, bad moms, really bad moms and even a Mother. As if the teaser weren’t enough, the red-band trailer for I, Tonya dropped this week and with it the acid-tongued profanity from our #1 Supporting Actress contender, Allison Janney. Sitting atop with a perfect score of ...

Armando Ianucci‘s The Death Of Stalin and Rungano Nyoni‘s I Am Not A Witch were right behind with 13 nods each.

2018 Oscar Predictions: THE SCREENPLAYS (November)

Adapted Screenplay is a weird category this year. Once you get past our predicted top 5 it’s like pulling teeth to find likely contenders. Even the top 5 itself doesn’t ‘look’ right other than #1 Call Me By Your Name. Not only is it not vulnerable, it’s such a clear and far out frontrunner that this category barely needs other ...
