ROMA (Netflix)

Can anything really beat Roma here?

There’s really nothing standing in its way unless you think that the voting body doesn’t want to give the film both this and Best Picture. The odds are still stacked way in Roma‘s favor, not simply with its unilateral FLF wins everywhere, but because when a film is nominated here and in Best Picture it never loses. Cold War having that Best Director nomination is giving some people some hesitation, but not me. A loss here would be completely shocking.

Mexico is finally going to win an Oscar after 50 submissions (the record holder) and 8 nominations (2nd place).

1. ROMA – Mexico (BAFTA, BFCA, GG)
2. COLD WAR – Poland
4. NEVER LOOK AWAY – Germany
5. CAPERNAUM – Lebanon
BAFTA – British Film Academy Awards
BFCA – Broadcast Film Critics Association (Critics Choice)
GG – Golden Globes

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.
