While many of the Golden Globes winners for acting repeated at the Critics Choice Awards, the two groups differed on the best pictures of the year. The HFPA members went with “Bohemian Rhapsody” (drama) and “Green Book” (comedy/musical) while the Broadcast Film Critics Assn. voters opted for “Roma.”
Let’s take a look at what that win by “Roma” has done to the 35 boxes league table that catalogues nominations and wins at the major precursor prizes leading up to the Academy Awards.
“Green Book” still leads with 16 boxes ticked. “Roma” now joins “The Favourite” with an even dozen check marks. Both films sit only one back of Adam McKay‘s “Vice” and two behind Spike Lee‘s “BlacKkKlansman” and the “A Star is Born” remake from multi-hyphenate Bradley Cooper.
There’s only one more precursor prize left now before the academy announces their nominations. The Producers Guild of America Awards take place on Jan. 19. As there is only box up for grabs there – Best Picture – “Green Book” is assured of being in the lead when the nominations for the Oscars are revealed on Jan. 22.
Be sure to make your Oscar nomination predictions so that Hollywood studio executives can see how their films are faring in our Academy Awards odds. Don’t be afraid to jump in now since you can keep changing your predictions until just before nominees are announced on January 22.
