FINAL 2019 Oscar Predictions: BEST PICTURE

Roma (Netflix) Here we are. After the most tumultuous Oscar season in memory, the biggest award of the night, Best Picture, is still up in the air. It’s one of the great ironies of Oscar watching and predicting; we hate it when everything is predictable and “boring” yet panic when things are truly up in the air. Damned if you …

FINAL 2019 Oscar Predictions: BEST ACTRESS

Glenn Close in The Wife (Sony Classics) The time has come. After seven nominations, Glenn Close (The Wife) will finally be an Oscar winner. With the Golden Globe, SAG and Critics’ Choice in her pocket she’ll enter the Dolby as the frontrunner in the strongest position she’s ever been in before. BAFTA winner Olivia Colman (The Favourite) will give her …

FINAL 2019 Oscar Predictions: SUPPORTING ACTRESS

Regina King in If Beale Street Could Talk (Annapurna Pictures) One of the most difficult categories to predict with a top two that are nearly equal in terms of likelihood. Regina King (If Beale Street Could Talk) has the Golden Globe and the Critics’ Choice but missed out on the two industry nominations from SAG and BAFTA. Rachel Weisz hit …

FINAL 2019 Oscar Predictions: BEST DIRECTOR

Alfonso Cuarón, Roma (photo: Carlos Somonte) With all four major precursors in hand and more than two dozens critics prizes, Alfonso Cuarón (Roma) should easily walk away with his second Best Director Oscar on Sunday, among other wins. In doing so, he’ll become the first director of an entirely non-English language film to do so. While there is a chance …

FINAL 2019 Oscar Predictions: BEST ACTOR

Bohemian Rhapsody (20th Century Fox) Like Supporting Actor, the frontrunner in Best Actor has also jumped hurdles and through hoops to avoid the pitfalls of his problematic film to come out largely unscathed. Back in the early fall there wasn’t much reason to think that Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody) would make too big a splash other than maybe having some …

FINAL 2019 Oscar Predictions: SUPPORTING ACTOR

Green Book (Universal) Arguably one of the most locked categories of the night is Supporting Actor. Unlike last year, this is the only acting category where the frontrunner has won all major precursors before Oscar night – the Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice, SAG and BAFTA. That is, of course, Mahershala Ali in Green Book. Ali is set to win his …

FINAL 2019 Oscar Predictions: FILM EDITING

Bohemian Rhapsody (20th Century Fox) A tough race with two frontrunners that are, arguably, two of the – let’s just say – most edited films of the year. Vice and Bohemian Rhapsody share precursors with the former winning BAFTA and the latter winning ACE. The caveat is that they didn’t compete against each other at ACE – BR won Drama …

FINAL 2019 Oscar Predictions: CINEMATOGRAPHY

Roma (Netflix) Director Alfonso Cuarón (Roma) should be set to make history as the first director to win the cinematography Oscar for shooting his own film. The American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) opted for Cold War‘s Łukasz Żal and there is a slight chance he could spoil. The two black and white foreign language films are going head to head …

FINAL 2019 Oscar Predictions: MAKEUP & HAIRSTYLING

Vice (Annapurna) BAFTA may have gone for The Favourite but that film isn’t nominated for the Oscar. Of the three films that are (why are there still only three nominees here?), Vice has the most makeup, wins at Critics’ Choice and MUAH but most of all, it’s the only Best Picture nominee. That all but locks it here and it’s …

FINAL 2019 Oscar Predictions: ADAPTED and ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY

From left: BlacKkKlansman and The Favourite – are they the favourites to win? Spike Lee is finally going to win a competitive Oscar to go along with his Honorary one from 2016. Although the screenplay for BlacKkKlansman has four credited writers (only four other times in Oscar history have that many shared a win) this is going to be Lee’s. …
