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, ...

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 ...

2018 Oscar Predictions: SOUND EDITING and SOUND MIXING (November)

Dunkirk still controls the Sound categories again this month and the top three in both are still: Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. They even have the same point breakdown. It seems like a tough sell to unseat any of those and their positions this season unless something surprises. Elsewhere down the list it’s virtually the ...
