Whoever gets SAG on Wednesday will get that final slot at the Oscars. Close, Gaga, Colman, and McCarthy are locks IMO. It’s Kidman vs. Blunt for that final spot!December 10, 2018 at 10:42 am #1202696774
Despise hating all the love Crazy Rich Asians has been getting, that production design nom is very well deserved.December 10, 2018 at 10:49 am #1202696780
I’ve always stated this award show was pointless, and everyone jumped down my throat for having that opinion. Now I see many people pissed off and complaining.December 10, 2018 at 10:53 am #1202696787
I don’t understand why everyone is complaining. The Golden Globes are much worse than this and I don’t see anyone complaining.December 10, 2018 at 10:54 am #1202696790
Not sure why ur all complaining. These % correct r some People’s best performances ever on the prediction center lolDecember 10, 2018 at 11:21 am #1202696853
Close is underperforming at the critics circles but still hitting the major precursors. If she hits SAG (which is highly likely), her nom will be lockedDecember 10, 2018 at 11:32 am #1202696869

For the 5th slot: I think it’s Blunt vs. Aparicio, and I can’t decide which will make it…

It’s sad that Love Simon is not even nominated for Best Comedy and Best Actor in a Comedy. It’s one of the best reviewed movie of the year!! Instead, they nominated Deadpool 2 and Game Night… what a joke!December 10, 2018 at 11:53 pm #1202697430

How the heck were the Globes better or worse? I think both groups did great jobs nominating considering the categories available. Both awards just want to predict the Oscars and it looks like they will do a fine job of that.
I cant at people making declarations off these joke awards lol
These awards are super silly but they sure did an extraordinary job predicting the Oscar winners last year, with their Big 8 winners for Picture, Director, acting x4, and Screenplay x2 all ending up as those exact same winners of those Oscar categories. Gotta take them seriously for Oscar winners predictions at least just because of that.December 11, 2018 at 12:08 am #1202697439
I just looked it up and every year since the Critics Choice Awards started doing nominees in 1996, they have never not nominated the eventual Best Picture winner at the Oscars. That’s a solid track record right there.
Also, for Best Director the Critics Choice Awards have at least nominated the future Oscar winner since that category started to have nominees in 2001.
Other categories have more mixed of a track record. Future Oscar winner for Score The Grand Budapest Hotel was snubbed by the Critics Choice Awards, whose winner that year Antonio Sanchez for Birdman was declared ineligible by the music branch of the Academy due to his reliance on non-original music in the soundtrack, if I recall correctly. Other Critics Choice winners for Music like The Illusionist and sadly There Will Be Blood (the latter I think was also ineligible, but I can’t remember why) have failed to even get nominated by the Oscars for their own Music Score category.
So, I’d highly recommend taking the below-the-line nominees for the Critics Choice Awards with far more of a grain of salt than the nominees in the major categories, as far as using them as a guide for the future Oscar nominees is concerned.December 11, 2018 at 6:41 am #1202697616
The Critic’s Choice is really a good predictor of the Oscars. It’s the only major awards show that awarded Best Picture to Spotlight and The Shape of Water before the Oscars so that is really telling something.
