Our Oscars 2017 predictions center is now open for your earliest nominee picks ever! Will this year be similar to the last one when the Best Picture race kept switching between eventual winner “Spotlight” along with “The Big Short” and “The Revenant”? Or will we have a season long frontrunner like the years when “The Artist” and “12 Years a Slave” prevailed?
It’s only late August, so we know that you and virtually all of Hollywood hasn’t seen too many of this year’s contenders, but that’s what makes predicting at such an early stage even more fun. Take a look back at your picks when we know so much more in December and January. Keep in mind we will continue to add more candidates and categories over the next few months. We will also make lead and supporting category changes as we obtain more information from the studios and campaigners.
Will Oscar queen Meryl Streep (“Florence Foster Jenkins”) be able to tie Katharine Hepburn for the all-time acting record with a fourth Academy Award? Will other prior Oscar winners such as Warren Beatty (“Rules Don’t Apply”), Tom Hanks (“Sully”), Nicole Kidman (“Lion”), Jennifer Lawrence (“Passengers”), Helen Mirren (“Eye in the Sky”), Alicia Vikander (“The Light Between Oceans”), Denzel Washington (“Fences”), or Rachel Weisz (“Denial”) be able to add to their collections?
What about major I.O.U.’s currently held by multiple nominees Amy Adams (“Arrival” and “Nocturnal Animals”), Annette Bening (“20th Century Women”), Jessica Chastain (“Miss Sloane”), Viola Davis (“Fences”), Will Smith (“Collateral Beauty”), and Michelle Williams (“Manchester by the Sea”)? And several familiar faces — Emily Blunt (“The Girl on the Train”), John Goodman (“10 Cloverfield Lane”), Ewan McGregor (“American Pastoral”), and Kristen Stewart (“Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk”) among them– are hoping for their first glimpses at Oscar gold.August 24, 2016 at 9:46 am #1201912771
We are starting with 6 categories and will add the rest over the upcoming months.
Films and performers listed are based on the information we are receiving from the studios and campaigners. Lead and supporting placements are also based on their suggestions. If you don’t see someone listed, it is because they are telling us their roles don’t warrant the placement (no impact or too small) or that film is not being campaigned (which is the kiss of death with voters). Anything can change, though, so we will continue to make adjustments.August 24, 2016 at 9:48 am #1201912772

I’m gonna be watching this like a hawk for SILENCE being added.August 24, 2016 at 11:39 am #1201912821
Since my big predictions are for Silence, I’m just keeping an eye open, since I’m pretty sure it is coming out this year.August 24, 2016 at 11:41 am #1201912823
If a movie doesn’t have both a release date and a distributor, we could not include it at this stage. Paramount could not confirm for us that “Silence” is going to be released in December. If that changes, we will certainly add it.August 24, 2016 at 12:02 pm #1201912839
