2020 Oscar Nomination Predictions: ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY (June)

Brad Pitt in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood (Andrew Cooper/Columbia Pictures)

Original Screenplay sees some green this month as I move A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood over to Adapted, bumping up The Farewell, Harriet and Queen & Slim, the latter of which enters the top 5.

It’s up in the air whether or not the changes made from the first version of the screenplay for what is now Ford v Ferrari will be deemed original or not but until something definitive comes in I’m keeping it out of this category.

The Cannes-winning Pain and Glory, from Pedro Almodóvar, inches up into the Next Up section but everything else remains the same.
