Looking for a handy cheat sheet before making your predictions in all 24 categories at the 91st Academy Awards? Then click through our photo gallery above to see the favorites in each of the categories at the 2019 Oscars from the big one, Best Picture (“Roma”), right down to those three races for short films. That latter trio of categories can be make-or-break when it comes to winning your office pool.
We came up with these Oscar predictions by generating odds based on five groups of people who make predictions at Gold Derby: 33 journalists who are experts as they cover Hollywood year-round; our in-house team of 9 editors; two sets of site users: the top 24 at predicting last year’s Oscars and the all-star 24 from the last two years combined; and thousands of readers like you.
Besides Best Picture, we are predicting that “Roma” will win three more Oscars from its 10 bids in all: both Best Director and Best Cinematography for Alfonso Cuaron; and Best Foreign Language Film.
“The Favourite” will go three for 10 with wins for Best Original Screenplay, Best Costume Design and Best Production Design.
“Vice” will prevail in two of its eight races: Best Film Editing and Best Makeup & Hairstyling.
“Bohemian Rhapsody” is tipped to take home two Oscars from five nominations: Best Actor (Rami Malek) and Best Sound Mixing.
Three of the other Best Picture nominees will win one Oscar apiece: “BlacKkKlansman” will take the adapted screenplay award, “Green Book” will earn Mahershala Ali his second Supporting Actor Oscar in three years; and “A Star is Born” will win Best Original Song (“Shallow”).
The eighth Best Picture nominee, “Black Panther,” will lose all seven of its races.
“If Beale Street Could Talk” may have been snubbed for Best Picture but it will still win two of its three Oscar bids: Best Supporting Actress (Regina King) and Best Original Score.
“First Man” will fly off with one Oscar from four nominations: Best Sound Editing.
“The Wife” only has one bid but it will be a winner with leading lady Glenn Close finally claiming an Oscar after six losses.
“Avengers: Infinity War” will win Best Visual Effects, “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” will be named Best Animated Feature and “Free Solo” will take Best Documentary Feature.
