2021 Oscar Predictions: Who will win at the 93rd Annual Academy Awards?

The 2021 Oscars will be like no other in the 93-year history of the Academy Awards. The COVID-19 pandemic caused movie theaters to shutter in the spring and film festivals to be either cancelled or scaled down. This double whammy up-ended marketing plans for major awards hopefuls. Many seemingly sure-fire contenders saw their release dates postponed beyond the new eligibility deadline of February 28, 2021.

The films that remain in contention for the 93rd Academy Awards include a smattering of major studio releases, a slew of indie fare and an increasing number of entries from the streaming services. The academy waived the requirement for theatrical screenings, which could be a boon to burgeoning awards players Netflix, Amazon and Hulu.

What will come out on top? The 2021 Oscar nominations won’t be unveiled until March 15 and the ceremony is the latest ever, April 25. But there will be plenty of precursor prizes in the weeks leading up to these two key dates on the Oscar calendar.

We will be updating our 2021 Oscar predictions for each competitive category at the 93rd Academy Awards. Winner predictions will be updated often in the days to come so be sure to bookmark this page and keep checking back as the race heats up.
