FINAL 2019 Oscar Predictions: DOCUMENTARY FEATURE

Free Solo (NatGeo)

A complicated category in a banner year for documentaries with precursor wins going to films not even nominated. PGA and DGA went to Won’t You Be My Neighbor? and Three Identical Strangers, respectively, but Free Solo came out on top at BAFTA.

I can see RBG getting a lot of votes for its topicality and as a politically motivated choice but Free Solo is the more popular doc and everyone in the Academy gets to vote. I’m betting it’s going to be very close.

1. FREE SOLO – Jimmy Chin, Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi (BAFTA)
2. RBG – Betsy West, Julie Cohen
3. MINDING THE GAP – Bing Liu
4. HALE COUNTY THIS MORNING, THIS EVENING – RaMell Ross
5. OF FATHERS AND SONS – Talal Derki
BAFTA – British Film Academy Awards

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
