2019 Oscars guild awards scorecard: ‘A Star is Born’ is 7 for 7 with nominations

We’ve now heard from six of the guilds — actors, art directors, cinematographers, film editors, producers and writers — as well as the casting directors with their nominees for the best of the year in their respective fields.

Only one film — “A Star is Born” — has reaped bids from all seven precursor prizes. Not surprisingly, it is our frontrunner to win Best Picture at the Oscars.

Six films – “BlacKkKlansman,” “Crazy Rich Asians,” “The Favourite,”  “Green Book,” “Roma” and “Vice” — have been cited by five precursors. All of these but “Crazy Rich Asians” number among our top 10 Best Picture contenders. But could we be underestimating this comedy blockbuster, which is currently in 14th place on our chart?

The current roster is rounded out by “Black Panther” and “Bohemian Rhapsody,” which are both in contention at four guilds as well as three-time contender “Mary Poppins Returns” and two-time nominee “If Beale Street Could Talk.”

During the eight-day nominations voting period for the Academy Awards that began on Jan. 7 we will hear from the  directors, costume designers, makeup artists & hairdressers and sound mixers.

PREDICT Oscar nominations now; change them till January 22
