My Predictions:

Best Picture: 1917

Best Director: Sam Mendes, 1917

Best Actress: Renée Zellweger, Judy

Best Actor: Joaquin Phoenix, Joker

Best Actor in a Supporting Role: Brad Pitt, One Upon a Time in Hollywood

Best Actress in a Supporting Role: Laura Dern, Marriage Story

Best Adapted Screenplay: Taika Waititi, Jojo Rabbit

Best Original Screenplay: Quentin Tarantino, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Best Animated Feature: Toy Story 4

Best International Feature: Parasite

Best Cinematography: 1917, Roger Deakins

Best Costume Design: Little Women

Best Film Editing: Parasite

All good calls. Parasite is first Korean show to appear. Also alot of buzz for: I Lost My Body, even though it’s animation, it may break through to other categories.

Waaaaa!! I started poll here


So…that time of year again. The last award of the season.
Winner just gets bragging rights for a day. :wink:

Gotcha :+1:. Should’ve been in Arts & Entertainment though, that’s why I initially didn’t find/see one.

You’re right. My mistake.

Why’s it closed?


Better win best actor. That was legendary work.

Roughly 4 hours til the ceremony now!

Re JP: I’d be surprised if he doesn’t. I put money down.

Made an amendment: VFX for 1917 instead of Endgame

I will also say that a very close runner up to Best Original Screenplay is Parasite. And for my Best Film Editing pick Parasite, the trophy might just get taken by Ford v Ferrari instead (I wouldn’t be surprised).

The Academy isn’t going to be that generous with Parasite IMO. They’ll certainly give it to for best foreign film.

1917 is going to sweep the awards. They love that sort of stuff.

Eviro for best actress? I don’t think so but could be since the Academy generally rewards AAs for those roles. However, Marriage Story was reviewed so strongly, I think they’ll take at least 3 home.

I hear ya. But the parasite script is just bonkers. It’s so undeniable I wouldn’t count it out… even though my official pick is Tarantino.

Oh no arguement. It was a brilliant piece writing I haven’t seen in awhile. Hollyweird could take a lesson or two.

Didn’t see OUTIH so can’t weigh in😞 but does the Academy even like him?

Scarlett Johannson was outstanding in Marriage Story, as was Laura Dern. I’d be surprised if those two don’t win in their respective categories.

Hollywood loves Hollywood. That, you can take to the bank.

You should watch it! Despite haters, I actually had a good time “living” in ‘60s LA.
