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. The never-nominated Nolan is all but assured his place at the Best Director table after his perceived snubs for The Dark Knight and Inception, both of which earned a ...

2018 Oscar Predictions: BEST ACTRESS (November)

The unthinkable has happened. MERYL STREEP IS NOT #1. I know. Take a moment if you need to. For the first time since we started the 2018 Oscar Predictions back in April (The Post was announced in March), Meryl Streep, the three-time Oscar winner and 20-time Oscar nominee has fallen to #2. Ok, so this isn’t life threatening or anything ...

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 ...

2018 Oscar Predictions: SUPPORTING ACTOR (November)

Willem Dafoe (The Florida Project) holds onto the #1 spot this month, but oh so barely, as Sam Rockwell (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) continues his ascent and lands just a single point behind Dafoe. In all, the top 5 remain the same and in the same order. Last week’s #6, Ben Mendelsohn (Darkest Hour) falls to # this month, ...

Lady Macbeth, Three Billboards, God’s Own Country Lead 2017 British Independent Film (BIFA) Nominations

William Oldroyd’s Lady Macbeth led the 2017 British Independent Film nominations with a field-best 15 today. Armando Ianucci‘s The Death Of Stalin and Rungano Nyoni‘s I Am Not A Witch were right behind with 13 nods each. Not to be left out, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri received 11 nominations, including dual Supporting Actor nods for Woody Harrelson and Sam ...

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 ...

2018 Oscar Predictions: FILM EDITING and CINEMATOGRAPHY (November)

Dunkirk stays locked onto the #1 spot in Film Editing once again. This is always an interesting category because the winner usually falls into one of two (or sometimes both) categories: a major action film or the Best Picture winner. At them moment, Dunkirk hits both of those. It’s a category that has also often favored longer films (2 hours ...

Frontrunner Friday: Dunkirk Stays Afloat Amongst Fall Festival Favorites

Not much has changed since the last Frontrunner Friday. Dunkirk sits atop the list once again with only a very small 1-point downturn. It’s impressive that the summer blockbuster is still managing to remain the default frontrunner in a season that doesn’t really have one. Or, are we so ingrained now that an Oscar frontrunner can only come from a ...
