2019 Oscar Predictions: BEST ACTRESS (December)

Emily Blunt, Mary Poppins Returns (Disney) This is the category you want, that you really really want. The Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild and Critics’ Choice have spoken and there are some clear leaders (mostly what we knew) but still room for a spoiler (or two) and definitely a major snub (or two!). The Globes, with separate categories for Drama …

2019 Oscar Predictions: ADAPTED and ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY (December)

BlacKkKlansman (Focus Features)The Favourite (Fox Searchlight) Both of the screenplay categories broke from Best Picture last year when Call Me By Your Name and Get Out, the overwhelming critical favorites, bested The Shape of Water to win their respective Adapted and Original categories. Even since the expansion of the Best Picture category in 2009, the connection between BP and its …

2019 Oscar Predictions: BEST ACTOR (December)

John David Washington (BlacKkKlansman) Bradley Cooper (A Star Is Born) and Christian Bale (Vice) still hold the top two spots this month but a big swap between #3 and #6 with Ethan Hawke (First Reformed) falling out to make way for Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody).

2019 Oscar Predictions: SUPPORTING ACTOR (December)

Richard E. Grant (Can You Ever Forgive Me?) If it hadn’t been for that weird Golden Globe snub of Sam Elliott (A Star Is Born) this category would be pretty wrapped up in terms of nomination predictions. Still, I think it’s probably the most locked acting category at this point with not a lot of real outliers with a chance …

2019 Oscar Predictions: FILM EDITING and CINEMATOGRAPHY (December)

Vice and Widows make moves into the top 5 for Film Editing after their BFCA noms but the top 10 in Cinematography doesn’t budge an inch.  Guild nominations in both of these categories next month could change that.  Here are my 2019 Oscar predictions in Film Editing for December 19, 2018. Green – moves up; Red – moves down; Blue – chart debut/re-entry 1. ROMA (BFCA)2. A …

2019 Oscar Predictions: PRODUCTION DESIGN and COSTUME DESIGN (December)

Nothing is going to unseat The Favourite from likely double wins in these two categories (that have often gone hand in hand). Lots of green this month though after BFCA noms, we’ll see what the guilds in these fields bring us next month.  Bohemian Rhapsody makes big moves in both on the strength of its Golden Globe and SAG nominations. …

2019 Oscar Predictions: SOUND MIXING and SOUND EDITING (December)

No changes at the top for either Sound Editing or Sound Mixing. Ready Player One moves up on both charts (closer to where it should belong, it’s Gary Rydstrom, for pete’s sake). Here are my 2019 Oscar predictions in Sound Editing for December 19, 2018. Green – moves up; Red – moves down; Blue – chart debut/re-entry 1. First Man2. ROMA3. Black Panther4. Ready Player …
