2020 Oscar Nomination Predictions: SUPPORTING ACTOR (April)

Like with Supporting Actress, category placement could swing a lot of ways with any number of films and performances that could be in contention this year.

With just the films of Sundance under our belt, the bench for seen Best Actress contenders is slim but still noteworthy like Awkwafina in The Farewell, Emma Thompson in Late Night, Alfre Woodard in Clemency, Jessie Buckley in Wild Rose and Naomi Watts in Luce.

Those are …

2020 Oscar Nomination Predictions: BEST PICTURE (April)

I’m baaaaaack. It took a while, I know. My peers have already kicked off their 2020 predictions (as I normally do, I just needed some time) but I’m ready to take on this year, which already looks stacked as hell.
