      We are officially one week away from the Oscar's and all the precursors (being the award shows that happen before the Oscar's) have come and gone. Here's where I think the Oscar's will go on March 10th.

      Picture: Oppenheimer

      It's a done deal.

      Director: Christopher Nolan - Oppenheimer

      Original Screenplay: Anatomy of a Fall

      After unexpectedly winning the Golden Globe for Best Screenplay it immediately became the front-runner in the category besting previous front-runners The Holdovers and Barbie (which got switched over to Adapted anyway). Having picked up the BAFTA in the same category, it's locked.

      Adapted Screenplay: American Fiction

      Also having won the BAFTA for Adapted Screenplay, beating out Poor Things and Oppenheimer (which BAFTA loved) this is also pretty clearly the favorite to win here. Two weak winners in a row for this category imo.

      Lead Actor: Cillian Murphy - Oppenheimer

      This seemed obvious for a long time, but now that he's swept all the awards it's a done deal..

      Lead Actress: Lilly Gladstone - Killers of the Flower Moon

      This is actually a tight race between her and Emma Stone in Poor Things. They both won the Globe and Stone won the BAFTA while Gladstone won SAG. Gladstone wasn't even nominated at BAFTA (despite the jury being there to nominate minorities) which complicated the race. However, with SAG having gone after BAFTA I think that'll have more influence and give Gladstone more momentum. Also, most of the time when SAG gives Best Ensemble to the eventual Picture winner they tend to go 4/4 in the acting categories.

      Supporting Actor: Robert Downey Jr. - Oppenheimer

      He swept like Brad Pitt in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

      Supporting Actress: D'avine Joy Randolph - The Holdovers

      Also swept.

      Original Score: Oppenheimer

      Original Song: What Was I Made For? from Barbie

      Sound: Oppenheimer

      Production Design: Poor Things

      Cinematography: Oppenheimer

      Makeup & Hairstyling: Maestro

      Costume Design: Barbie

      Poor Things won BAFTA, however BAFTA as a whole did not like Barbie very much. And there's too much iconography attached to the film in this category that I think the Oscar's will go for it over Poor Things.

      Film Editing: Oppenheimer

      Visual Effects: The Creator

      After the branch snubbed both Oppenheimer and Poor Things, it muddled the winner in this category. People initially thought Guardians of the Galaxy 3 would be the winner. But there's pretty severe anti-superhero bias in the category. The Creator won at the VFX guild, it's flashy, it looks good, and it's somewhat of a "serious" movie.

      Animated Feature: Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse

      This isn't as clear as a race as I thought it would have been. Globes and BAFTA went with Boy and the Heron in this category while Critic's Choice and PGA went with Spider-Verse. The Oscar's usually goes populist in this category (eg they went with Toy Story 4 when Globes and BAFTA went in a more artsy direction). So I'm sticking with Spider-Man here.

      Documentary Feature: 20 Days in Mariupol

      Live Action Short: The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar

      This would give Wes Anderson his first Oscar win, if the Academy doesn't blue ball him.

      Animated Short: Letter to a Pig

      Documentary Short: The ABC's of Book Banning

      For those of you who are new I usually post awards predictions from time to time. Some people seem to like it, at least when it was just a handful of active users.

      Anyways these are predictions I currently have for “the guilds” meaning industry awards that are not the Oscar’s. Segmented by different unions. They usually are more populist than the Academy, due to many members being from the TV and commercial world. Whenever there’s an artsy contender that they avoid, the Academy nominates it anyway (Drive My Car, Triangle of Sadness, Phantom Thread being some recent examples that come to mind).

      Picture: Everything Everywhere All At Once

      It swept the guilds. Last movie to do that was Birdman. I don’t even know what would win in its place anymore. All Quiet on the Western Front? Nah that’s missing too many things. EEAAO’s got this in the bag.

      Director: Daniel Kwan & Daniel Scheinert - Everything Everywhere All At Once

      DGA winners, next.

      Original Screenplay: Everything Everywhere All At Once written by Daniel Kwan & Daniel Scheinert

      I want to predict Banshees winning at least here. But Three Billboards was a stronger movie (it won Globe Drama, SAG Ensemble, and BAFTA Film) and McDonagh lost to Get Out and EEAAO has way more passion.

      Adapted Screenplay: All Quiet on the Western Front screenplay by Edward Berger, Ian Stokell, Lesley Paterson. Based on the novel by Erich Maria Remarque.

      BAFTA has been way more accurate at “predicting” the winner in this category than either Critic’s Choice or WGA. Women Talking only has two nominations, was 10th in Picture, and didn’t even get a BAFTA nomination. So I think the stronger movie here will win.

      Lead Actor: Austin Butler - Elvis

      BAFTA + Globe is a hell of a combo. Fraser would be his biggest competition but the last actor to win for a movie that was not in Picture was Jeff Bridges.

      Lead Actress: Cate Blanchett - TÁR

      Ditto. Yeoh could win here, but Globe and BAFTA has proved an unbeatable combo in recent years.

      Supporting Actress: Kerry Condon - The Banshees of Inisherin

      BAFTA winner again. Bassett was a red herring, Curtis would be a weak winner and has been annoyingly campaigning all season. Mark Rylance went on to win the Oscar for Bridge of Spies after only having won BAFTA in a similarly divided field.

      Supporting Actor: Ke Huy Quan - Everything Everywhere All At Once

      He lost BAFTA, but he was the one constant winner in this category. If EEAAO walks away with only one acting award, it’ll be this one.

      Animated Feature: Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio

      Swept.

      International Feature: All Quiet on the Western Front

      Only Picture nominee.

      Documentary: Navalny

      PGA + BAFTA winner.

      Original Score: All Quiet on the Western Front

      Kind of an open category. Babylon won the Globe, but All Quiet won BAFTA. Any of the nominees could potentially win. But I’ll stay safe and stick with the BAFTA winner.

      Original Song: Naatu Naatu from RRR

      Nobody seems to care about any of the other songs. RRR has the passion. Although I can see the case for any of the other nominees winning.

      Sound: Top Gun: Maverick

      Locked.

      Production Design: Babylon

      Swept, locked.

      Cinematography: Elvis

      It’s the only movie to meet all the statistical requirements. It got nominated at all the precursors. It got a production design nomination. And it won at the cinematographer’s guild. It’s also really colorful and flashy. All Quiet would be the closest competition, but that missed a nomination at the guild. This should be Top Gun’s award, but oh well.

      Makeup and Hairstyling: Elvis

      Swept.

      Costume Design: Elvis

      Won BAFTA. Black Panther would be its closest competition but that lost at the guild to EEAAO. Elvis fits the stats better (production design nom).

      Film Editing: Top Gun: Maverick

      EEAAO has so far swept these awards, winning BAFTA, ACE Comedy, and Critic’s Choice. However, there is a strong correlation between sound and film editing. The last film editing winner to win without winning Sound was Argo, which still had sound nominations which EEAAO does not have. The last film editing winner without a sound nomination was Traffik in 2002. EEAAO could buck the trend, as it will be a Picture winner just like Argo. But, I’m sticking with the sound stat. Last year Dune did not win a single film editing award, but it won the Oscar due to the correlation. And Top Gun at least has ACE Drama, which is the only precursor Bohemian Rhapsody had before it went on to win the Oscar.

      Visual Effects: Avatar: The Way of Water

      Swept.

      Animated Short: The Boy, The Mole, The Fox, and the Horse

      Live-Action Short: Le Pupille

      Documentary Short: The Elephant Whisperers
