    Almost always when DGA and PGA give their awards to the same film that film wins both Oscars. It is rare and it can happen but I am predicting 1917 for BP and Director. I happen to love both films but 1917 has to be the favorite now!

    DGA predicts best director, not best picture. Nothing is over for Parasite yet, the same way it wasn’t for Spotlight or Moonlight a couple of years ago.

    Once 1917 cleans up at the BAFTAs, winning the Oscars is inevitable. The British are going to support a most British war film over a cool Korean language soap-opera.

    This is done.

    Someone pointed out an intersting stat on Twitter that said that in the last 12 years no film has won the BD Oscar without a ASC nom and only one film has won DGA without one (Argo). Directing and cinematography usually go hand in hand. That made me think twice about predicting Bong and so I went all in on Mendes.

    Only a huge upset can happen now. Anyone saying Parasite is the favourite for anything other than foreign film is deluded.

    With the Globe, PGA, DGA and almost certainly BAFTA to its name, it will require a Moonlight level upset for 1917 to not win Best Picture now.

    I and others have already listed plenty of reasons why it can’t win Best Picture and its late release does not excuse any of them. But hey, your loss.

    Sam Mendes successfully pulled a Clint Eastwood with a late December release and is going to win Picture and Director.

    The BAFTAs and Oscars have disagreed on Best Picture for the past 5 years.

    Funny how a decade dominated by festival films will end with a non festival film winning Best Picture.

    Had to ignore this Gabriel guy lol guy is overcome with peak delusion trying to deny 1917 is now the clear and obvious front-runner.

    Do remember that Parasite was not competing with 1917 for the Globe. Parasite won in the category it could have – best foreign film.

    Right now as it stands,

    Parasite:
    Globe, Ace Eddie, AACTA, and SAG

    1917:
    Globe, PGA, DGA

    Hollywood:
    Critics Choice

    I think Parasite will take WGA, and 1917 will take BAFTA. So I still think Parasite is likely to pull of Best Picture, with Mendes taking home Best Director.

    They’ll agree this year.

    Do I even need to explain why making a Million Dollar Baby comparison is faulty? Let’s face it: the Academy does not reward late releases anymore.
