2019 Oscar predictions by film: ‘A Star is Born’ will have a lot to sing about with a leading 11 nominations

After months of speculation, analysis and anticipation, the 2019 Oscar nominations will finally be announced in the wee hours of the morning on Tuesday, January 22. And we think the musical “A Star is Born” will have a lot to sing about. According to the combined predictions of thousands of Gold Derby users, the Bradley Cooper/Lady Gaga romantic drama will earn 11 nominations, more than any other film. Scroll down for our complete nomination predictions listed by film, with the projected winners highlighted in gold.

“A Star is Born” has had mixed results on the awards campaign trail so far. It lost Best Film Drama to “Bohemian Rhapsody” at the Golden Globes, and then it lost Best Picture to “Roma” at the Critics’ Choice Awards. But at the same time, it was racking up more nominations from industry guilds than any other film. Those industry prizes — everything from the Producers Guild to the Art Directors Guild — don’t get as much fanfare as the Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards, but they’re awarded by many of the same industry professionals that pick the Oscars, so they’re ultimately more meaningful in the awards derby.

We’re betting that “Black Panther” and “The Favourite” will be close behind “Star” with 10 nominations apiece, including Best Picture bids for both. If we’re right, “Black Panther” would be the most nominated superhero movie in Oscar history, and the first to contend for Best Picture.

“First Man” is predicted in nine categories, largely on the strength of its crafts. “Roma” is next in line with eight likely bids, but we’re actually predicting it to win more categories (four) than any other film. It’s tipped to win five awards if you count Best Picture, where it ranks second behind “A Star is Born” but actually has the same odds (7/1) as of this writing.

A tie at the Oscars is highly unlikely, though, so which way do you think it will go? Check out our nomination predictions below. You can keep making or updating your own predictions right here until Tuesday morning’s announcement.
