Tom O'Neil's Inside Track

Oscar Experts’ predictions smackdown: Tom O’Neil vs. Tariq Khan! It’s WAR! [Exclusive video & audio podcast]

“Get that smirk off your face!” I roar at fellow Oscar Expert Tariq Khan (Fox TV) in our latest, ferocious battle over Oscar predictions.

“You’re just too funny, Tom!” Tariq roars back. “I love laughing at your ridiculous predictions!” Tariq and I are infamous for the brutality of our prediction clashes. Watch our latest video fight above or listen to the audio podcast version below.

Tariq and I disagree in most top categories. For example, he’s still stubbornly sticking to the hope that Glenn Close (“The Wife”) will finally win Best Actress while I bet on Lady Gaga (“A Star Is Born”). Tariq also disagrees with most Gold Derby Experts, who predict the supporting races will go to Mahershala Ali (“Green Book”) and Regina King (“If Beale Street Could Talk”). Tariq opts for Richard E. Grant (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”) and Amy Adams (“Vice”).
