    Joaquin Phoenix, Renee Zellweger, Brad Pitt and Laura Dern have all been sweeping the precursors, making them all safe bets to take home Oscar gold as well.

    If an upset happens, which of this year’s frontrunners are most likely to go home empty-handed on Oscar night, and who do you think would be the winner?

    I do think that all of the frontrunners will get their Oscars this year, but if I had to predict an upset, I would say it might happen in the Supporting Actress category. Scarlett Johansson and Margot Robbie both had strong years with multiple Oscar films under their belt, and if Florence Pugh can win BAFTA, that could translate to an Oscar.

    Zellweger could potentially lose since she already has an Oscar, Joaquin Phoenix could lose if the Academy doesn’t feel the need to award him for the same role that they awarded Heath Ledger for, and Brad Pitt could lose if they feel like awarding an even more veteran actor (I know, I’m grasping at straws).

    Scarlett still has a chance to upset Dern and get a consolation prize for her 2 noms.

    That’s the only plausible scenario for an upset in the acting categories.

    Likelihood of winning
    Pitt > Phoenix > Dern > Zellweger
    But I think all four of them will win their Oscar.

    The poll doesn’t seem to work for me.

    Zellweger because her movie is not nominated for best picture and many voters probably won’t have seen it.
