Will Parasite do what Roma couldn't a year ago and become the first foreign language film to take home the best picture Oscar? Or will Netflix collect its very first best picture trophy? Or could a movie with a yellow Metascore somehow be named the year's best picture? Or will 1917simply win everything? These and absolutely no other questions will be answered on Sunday night when the 92nd Annual Academy Awards ceremony airs live on ABC at 8pm ET (5pm PT), once again utilizing the no-host format introduced in 2019. If predictions hold, 1917 will indeed end the evening ahead of other contenders with six total Oscar wins while Joker (this year's nominationsleader with 11), Once Upon a Time, and Parasite could also win multiple trophies. Then again, the experts correctly forecast just 15 of the 24 categories last year, so you may not want to ink in the winners just yet. Below, we have aggregated predictions from 117 entertainment writers, film critics, and awards experts (find a list of...
All four of this year's acting races appear to be locks, with the four favorites—SAG winners, all—unchanged for months. That was also true last year, however, and 2019 did see one upset winner (when Olivia Colman took home the best actress trophy instead of the heavily favored Glenn Close). Could there be an upset this year as well? It doesn't seem likely, but one name to look out for may be Scarlett Johansson, simply by virtue of appearing in two separate categories—obviously, Academy voters...
The two screenplay races are much tighter than they usually are at this stage, with two films still in the running in each category. If it's any help, the experts usually get these two picks correct—but they didn't last year, and they usually come to more of a consensus than they did this year. But favorites Parasite and Jojo Rabbit did just take home WGA awards, so you certainly would be making a safe pick by penciling them in.
Other films and shorts
The safest pick you can make in your Oscar pool is selecting Parasite as winner of the newly retitled International Feature category—if that doesn't win here after receiving five additional nominations in other categories, it'll be the story of the night. Picks in the short film categories—always a bit of a crapshoot, regardless of what the experts say—appear to be more settled than normal, with only the live-action category remaining anything close to a toss-up. Surprisingly, the animated fe...
Both music categories appear to be locks, but note that close to 90% support from the experts does not always guarantee an Oscar win. (At least, it didn't in 2016.)
Do yourself a favor and write down the name "Roger Deakins" in your Oscar pool—he's also one of this year's sure things. His film, best picture favorite 1917, looks likely to take home a handful of additional trophies in the technical categories—at least, for sound and visuals—and the only race where there isn't a dominant favorite is film editing, where Ford v Ferrari has a slight edge at the moment. Keep in mind that the experts always get at least one of these categories wrong (often visua...

The race for Best Picture at the 92nd Academy Awardsis turning out to be one for the ages. With nine nominees and a record-breaking four of them with 10 or more nominations apiece, we have a real dogfight on our hands, although a clear front-runner has emerged after my initial guesses for our Awardsline print edition which were done a couple of weeks ago. That is an eternity in this shortened season, and now with all the guilds and BAFTA having chimed in, it appears Sam Mendes’ World War I epic 1917 is out front, which is where I had surmised it might be at this point. With big wins at the Golden Globes, DGA , PGA and BAFTA it is formidable, but because of the Academy’s unique system for Best Picture voting, where you must rank your favorites from 1 being best and 9 being least, anything is possible as your No. 2 and No. 3 votes could make a real difference in the Academy’s effort to get a consensus (the other 23 categories are straight up and down votes). The system has wreaked hav...
MARTIN SCORSESE The Irishman If ever there was sentiment for a veteran in this category it would be for Scorsese, who received his ninth nomination here and 14th overall. The list of his previous nominations is awe-inspiring, ranging from Raging Bull to The Wolf of Wall Street, and there’s no question he’s deserving for this mob epic as well. He’s won only once, for The Departedin 2006. However, the competition this year makes a second win iffy especially since he has yet to pick up a win at any of the precursor shows. TODD PHILLIPS Joker Phillips is the only director among these five nominees who didn’t receive a DGA nomination, and that isn’t a good sign—the DGA winner has predicted the Oscar every time since 1949 when the DGA began giving out awards, with only seven exceptions. Long odds indeed, but Phillips’ inclusion shows the incredible strength that Jokerhas in the Academy, since many thought he might be overlooked here too. This is his first nomination here, but he probably...
All season long, this year’s incredibly dense and crowded list of contenders for Best Actor have been much debated. There were at least five actors who could have won in any other year, but didn’t even get nominated. The five who did are formidable: Cannes winner Antonio Banderas in Pain and Glory, Leonardo DiCaprio in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Adam Driver in Marriage Storyand Jonathan Pryce in The Two Popes. However, Joaquin Phoenix in Jokerhas been running away with the precursor awards at the Golden Globes, Critics’ Choice, SAG and BAFTA, where his acceptance speeches have pretty much sealed the deal.
Just like the Actor race, there has been one clear winner all season long, since her film about the final months of Judy Garland, Judy, premiered at Telluride. This is Renée Zellweger’s to lose, and so far, she hasn’t lost a thing, with wins at the Globes, Critics’ Choice, SAG and BAFTA overwhelmingly cementing a victory here. She’ll likely win over the likes of Cynthia Erivo in Harriet (who represents the only person of color among all the acting nominees this year), Scarlett Johansson in Marriage Story, Saoirse Ronan in Little Women, and Charlize Theron, whose uncanny work channeling Megyn Kelly in Bombshellmakes her the only one who could possibly upset. But I am afraid this time Judy Garland gets to the podium.
In a category where at least four of the five nominees are arguably leading roles, any room for true supporting actors went out the window this year. Also, the category contains three past Best Actor winners, and they’re slumming it here this time around. All were exceptional, and all five have Oscars already, but look for the contender whose previous Oscar was for producing, not acting, to take the prize, as Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’sBrad Pitt has already done at the Globes, Critics’ Choice, BAFTA and SAG awards. Tom Hanks, Al Pacino and Anthony Hopkins will all just have to give their lead actor Oscars an extra hug on the night, as will past supporting winner Joe Pesci, who came out of retirement to do The Irishmanand has already retired again.
Like all the other acting categories this year, there has been one consistent name heard on the circuit when the envelope is opened, and that is hometown favorite Laura Dern for her killer role of divorce lawyer Nora Fanshaw in Marriage Story. Oscar will be no different than the Globes, SAG, Critics’ Choice or BAFTA, and the other nominees will have to be content just having a nice night out. They include Kathy Bates for Richard Jewell, Florence Pugh for Little Women, Margot Robbie for Bombshell, and Scarlett Johansson for Jojo Rabbit. Johansson has a double nomination this year, in both lead and supporting—a rare feat—but alas, not one that will reap a statuette this time.
Four out of the five nominees here are also nominated for Best Picture, so that means we can probably eliminate Rian Johnson’s fiendishly clever Knives Out—the sole nomination for that movie. Also, Sam Mendes, making his screenwriting debut with first-timer Krysty Wilson-Cairns in 1917, is probably a long shot, since the script wasn’t really the selling point. That leaves Parasite, Marriage Story and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (the latter of which was not eligible for WGA, so keep that in mind) to duke it out. This is a tough one to call, since Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story was brilliant and he’s overdue, but he hasn’t won a precursor since the Gotham Awards. Parasite has a lot of heat all of a sudden including a rare (actually first) win for a foreign-language film at WGA, where he wasn’t competing with Tarantino, and at BAFTA, where he was, so this is the category where once again the past two-time winner could once again prevail for his love letter to movies and Los Angeles....
Anthony McCarten’s script for The Two Popes was perhaps the most literate and inventive of all, but the film wasn’t nominated for Best Picture, so we can probably discount its chances here. This might be a place to honor The Irishman with Steven Zaillian’s epic script, or to give the prize for sheer audacity and achievement to Todd Phillips and Scott Silver for transforming DC Comics’ Joker into something deadly real and serious. However, I think it could come down to Greta Gerwig as a sort of consolation prize (it isn’t) for not being nominated in the Directing category for Little Women, or Taika Waititi for the sheer originality and joy of BAFTA and WGA winner Jojo Rabbit.
The nominees are Poland for Corpus Christi, North Macedonia for Honeyland (a rare documentary nominated here), France for Les Misérables, Spain for Pedro Almodóvar’s brilliant and personal Pain and Glory, and South Korea in the category for the first time ever with Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite.Every time a nominee in this category has also been nominated for Best Picture, it wins here and loses there. I’m not certain what will happen in Best Picture, but this is the category to bet the farm on, folks.
Two sequels, the third edition of the How to Train Your Dragon franchise and the fourth Toy Story compete with two films from Netflix: I Lost My Body, a multi-prize winner that debuted in Cannes and won Critics’ Week there, as well as the holiday film Klaus which won seven Annies and the BAFTA. The fifth nominee, Missing Link, is from Laika, which has landed a nomination for every single one of their films but never a win. It was, however, the surprise champ at the Golden Globes, and that made me sit up and take notice, as did upstart Klaus’ win at BAFTA and sweep at the Annies. This category is a complete toss-up, a battle between a pair of behemoth sequels and three originals. Thinking the two sequels and the two Netflix entries cancel themselves out and we go with the Globe winner, but I really don’t have a clue on this one. This is a shaky prediction but…
