2019-2020 Build By Guild: Creating a Best Picture nominee

It’s back, the Build by Guild: Creating a Best Picture nominee. Certain guilds will carry more weight than others; PGA, DGA, SAG over CSA, ADG or CDG for example. Placements will change, tiers will alter. Once the Best Picture Oscar nominees are announced the Build by Guild: Creating a Best Picture Winner will roll out.

What’s always interesting about compiling the lists of guild nominations (and later, wins) that a film receives is when it really matters and when it might not. Two years ago, The Big Sick came in with SAG, MUAH, PGA, WGA but managed just an Original Screenplay Oscar nomination when all was said and done. On the opposite end, Phantom Thread only had a Costume Designers Guild nomination and then blew up Oscar nomination morning with nods in Best Picture, Director, Actor, Supporting Actress, Score and Costume Design, the last of which it won. So while these guild nominations give us a lot of information and certainly some undeniable evidence it’s always good to look outside of them for unseeable factors that could tip the balance of the race.

Check back here as guilds continue to announce their nominees in December and January as they will be coming in fast and furious in this shortened season. Here are the Key Dates for many of these guilds.
