Inspired by the thread in the Emmys section.
What are some of your predictions for nominees/winners/category changes in Oscar’s not so distant future?
-Best Picture will revert to either 5 or 10 nominees.
-Will Smith and Viola Davis will win for playing Barack and Michelle Obama.
-Cate Blanchett will be the next performer to earn 10+ nominations for acting.
-Walton Goggins and Garret Dillahunt will be supporting actor nominees by 2020.
-Amy Poehler will shock everybody with an ultra-dramatic performance and stampede the Oscar race.August 23, 2014 at 8:35 pm #159005
Leo will still be Oscarless (I hope not)
The Academy will stick with 10 nominees
The Academy will make Make Up and Song 5 nominees no matter what yearly
Best Ensemble will be an award or at least considered
Meryl Streep will be at 20-25 nominations
David Fincher will finally have an Oscar
More comedians will go dramatic like Ben Stiller this year and get nominated
Viola Davis will have an Oscar
Danny Elfman will have an Oscar
Roger Deakins will have an OscarAugust 23, 2014 at 9:02 pm #159006
In 10 Years Jessica Chastain will have at least 2 Oscars and at least 8-9 nominations.August 23, 2014 at 9:57 pm #159007
Hathaway will win #2
and JLaw will win #2.August 24, 2014 at 12:25 am #159008
Meryl Streep wins #4
J-Law wins #2
Adams, Moore, Close, Chastain and Davis win #1
Phoenix, DiCaprio and Gylenhaal also win #1
Roger Deakins and Kathleen Kennedy finally win oscarsAugust 24, 2014 at 12:29 am #159009
My favorite movie will continue to lose Best Picture. Oh and Meryl Streep will have at least 5 more nominations and another win.
A movie will receive a record breaking 6 acting nominations.
Future Best Actor winners — Leonardo DiCaprio, Jake Gyllenhaal, Tom Hanks
Future Best Actress winners — Amy Adams, Glenn Close, Angela Lansbury
Future Best Supporting Actor winners — Paul Giamatti, Ed Harris, James Earl Jones
Future Best Supporting Actress winners — Ellen Burstyn, Jane Fonda, Cicely Tyson
Future Best Director winners — David Fincher, Martin Scorsese, Steven SpielbergAugust 24, 2014 at 12:51 am #159010
I really hope Kyle is right and there are always 5 nominees for makeup and song.
Also, Spielberg is going to win another oscar for directing. And Woody Allen will get another screenwriting oscar.August 24, 2014 at 7:11 am #159011
Meryl Streep will be at 20-25 nominations
I really do not want to see that. I hope the Academy passes over her several times, as that has never happened when she has a bait peformance in a bad film. I just think it would be ridiculous that she’s getting close to 10 more noms than the second most nominated actor, and Jack has been in many more classic films than Meryl.
Also, Spielberg is going to win another oscar for directing. And Woody Allen will get another screenwriting oscar.
I hope both are done winning. Spielberg has won enough for his talents; I just get annoyed when he makes it so overt that he wants to win and gets everything he wants in the campaign season because he is so powerful ($$$$). Also, his self-proclaimed important films he thinks have to win aren’t Spielberg at his most inspired.
I definitely see Scorsese as a possibility, someone who has always been undercelebrated and overlooked. Maybe Kathryn Bigelow can win again too; she’s directing at a higher level than Spielberg or Scorsese these days. But please no more Tom Hooper.August 24, 2014 at 8:41 am #159012
Lol Scorcese is undercelebrated in another dimension. Also acting noms are for acting! That is why a Streep has so many. The film itself is irrelevant.
My predictions for the next 5 years:
DiCaprio wins, Chastain wins her first, Streep makes it to 20, Fincher wins Director, Russell wins for screenplay, A major upset happens in an acting category (SAG went to front runner), Nolan’s nominated, An actor is a double nomineeAugust 24, 2014 at 9:01 am #159013
Lol Scorcese is undercelebrated in another dimension. Also acting noms are for acting! That is why a Streep has so many.
Dude, Scorsese’s one Oscar is a pittance when you look at his career. Where have you been? It took him 35 years to win for a film that is nowhere near his best. That’s still undercelebrated.
Also,why am I explaining myself for Meryl? “Acting noms are for acting”–what does that mean?? All I said is enough is enough. No way should she be getting close to 10 more than the next most nominated person for big, often unremarkable work in bad films. Her work in The Giver and August Osage Country should put her in actor jail, plus they flopped.August 24, 2014 at 9:05 am #159014
Second/third all you’ve said about more noms/wins for Chastain, Phoenix, Lawrence, Dicaprio, Adams, Blanchett, Tucci etc.
I also could see some other actors we wouldn’t expect at this moment, to give some surprising performances and break into the acting categories such as Eva Mendes, Jason Clarke, Joel Edgerton and Anna Faris.
And perhaps first nominations for Alison Janney, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Bobby Cannavale and other TV stars; Sarah Paulson or Judy Greer would be my dream manily TV actors to get an oscar nomination though.
And I half expect Lady Gaga to surprise us and pull a Cher and end up becoming an actually good actor, with oscar nominations and perhaps a win?August 24, 2014 at 9:07 am #159015
Audra McDonald will be the next black woman to win actress.
David Oyelowo will be the next black man to win actor.
Idina Menzel will win supporting actress for a musical film.
Vera Farmiga will get a rare acting nomination for a horror film.
Michelle Williams, not Amy Adams, will become the new Glenn Close.
Anne Hathaway will become the next supporting actress winner to win actress, and it will be for an ultra-hammy performance.
Jennifer Lawrence will win her second in the next 10 years, but will then have to wait longer than Streep did for her third.
Quentin Tarantino will bring a forgotten supporting actress winner back to the race like Mercedes Ruehl, Geena Davis or Renee Zellweger.
This one may be a bit of a stretch: Maggie and Jake Gyllenhaal will win actress and actor in the same year.August 24, 2014 at 9:18 am #159016

Oh and last one: At some point, there will be a Walt Disney Bio that will be made that will get a lot of Oscars.August 24, 2014 at 10:08 am #159018
There will be an extremely unusual nominee.
Like a singer who goes indie or a comedic actor that is in this heartfelt drama.
…oh and I will be an Oscar nominee. (I want to be a filmmaker, so I would like to be a nominee before 2020.)
