Anne Thompson (Thompson on Hollywood/ Indiewire) has been a Gold Derby pundit since this site trotted out of the starting gate 15 years ago. Now it's about time we tracked the races together. Watch our separate video chats below on the Best Picture race and the acting contests. We recorded these chats on Monday after the deluge of film-critics' awards and before we saw the list of SAG nominees today.
See our predictions here, but beware: we'll be changing them as soon as we digest the curious SAG rundown and after we see who'll be nominated by the Golden Globes. Pay careful attention to what Anne says. She consistently reaps top scores predicting kudos here at Gold Derby.
