2020 Oscars: Predictions ranked in all 24 categories at the 92nd annual Academy Awards

“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is predicted to lead with the most Oscar nominations on Monday morning, racking up a whopping 10 bids. Right behind Quentin Tarantino‘s fable about Tinseltown will be two very different movies — Martin Scorsese‘s crime drama “The Irishman” and Sam Mendes‘ WWI epic “1917”  — with nine nominations apiece for the 92nd annual Academy Awards. All three of these films will number Best Picture nominations among their haul for their 2020 Oscars.

“Little Women” is likely to reap eight nominations despite falling short at the Golden Globe and SAG Awards. And four more films will each earn a half dozen nominations: “Joker,” “Marriage Story,” “Parasite” and “Rocketman.” We are predicting that all of these, except “Rocketman,” will reap Best Picture bids.

If the Best Picture race, which can have as few as five nominees, expands to the maximum of 10, we are predicting nominations for “Ford v. Ferrari” and “Jojo Rabbit,” which are both expected to contend in other races, as well as two-time nominee “Knives Out.”

Before making your predictions in this category as well as the other 23 Academy Awards races, take a look at our rankings of the likeliest nominees (as of this writing).
