New predictions Best Film – Drama
- Marriage Story
- The Irishman
- Little Women
Still waiting to see on Bombshell, think it could sneak in and be quite popular here if it’s good. I think The Irishman will win, with Marriage Story close behind, but given the chaos of last years Globes I wouldn’t put it past them to give it to Joker. Best Actress – Drama
- Charlize Theron, Bombshell
- Saoirse Ronan, Little Women
- Renee Zellweger, Judy
- Scarlett Johansson, Marriage Story
- Lupita Nyong’o, Us
I imagine Zellweger will win this. I’m not too familiar with what kind of films the Globes go for but Judy seems right up their street. Alfre Woodard could sneak in here, depending on how big Clemency’s awards presence is. Best Actor – Drama
- Robert De Niro, The Irishman
- Adam Driver, Marriage Story
- Joaquin Phoenix, Joker
- Antonio Banderas, Pain & Glory
- Jonathan Pryce, The Two Popes
This will probably be quite important for indicating who takes the Oscar. I think they’ll give it to Phoenix. Best Film – Comedy/ Musical
- Jojo Rabbit
- Once Upon A Time In Hollywood
- Dolemite Is My Name
- Knives Out
OUATIH going Comedy theoretically makes this a bit of a dead category, but I have a slight suspicion Jojo Rabbit will play big at the Oscars and could take this too. I’m surprised Hustlers went Comedy, but I think it’ll do it good for nominations at the Globes. Best Actress – Comedy/ Musical
- Awkwafina – The Farewell
- Ana de Armas – Knives Out
- Constance Wu – Hustlers
- Beanie Feldstein – Booksmart
- Kaitlyn Dever – Booksmart
This is a great line up of nominees so maybe it’s more what I want to see, but I guess Emma Thompson for Late Night is the only one I could see sneaking in, maybe Francseca Hayward if they go chaotic and give Cats a few noms. This will be good for Awkwafina’s Oscar nom chances as I imagine she’ll win here. Best Actor – Comedy/ Musical
- Leonardo DiCaprio, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood
- Taron Egerton, Rocketman
- Daniel Craig, Knives Out
- Eddie Murphy, Dolemite Is My Name
- Adam Sandler, Uncut Gems
Leo very likely wins this, and it will put him in good stead for what I think is a relatively vulnerable Oscar nom spot. I’d give Murphy an outside chance. Supporting Actress
- Laura Dern, Marriage Story
- Jennifer Lopez, Hustlers
- Margot Robbie, Bombshell
- Florence Pugh, Little Women
- Shuzhen Zhou, The Farewell
The Globes might make the Oscar race interesting and go for Lopez here, but I can’t decide between her and Dern winning this one at the minute. Probably Dern, just because I think she’ll definitely take the Oscar. Supporting Actor
- Brad Pitt, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood
- Al Pacino, The Irishman
- Anthony Hopkins, The Two Popes
- Tom Hanks, A Beautiful Day In The Neighbourhood
- Joe Pesci, The Irishman
This category is crazy. Like with Oscar noms I’m struggling between Pesci and Dafoe for The Lighthouse. I’d pick Pitt to win at the minute, though. Director
- Martin Scorsese, The Irishman
- Quentin Tarantino, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood
- Greta Gerwig, Little Women
- Sam Mendes, 1917
- Bong Joon-ho, Parasite
I have Scorsese to win at the minute, with Bong a close second. Screenplay
- Marriage Story
- Once Upon A Time In Hollywood
- Jojo Rabbit
- The Irishman
I’m guessing Marriage Story will take this, but Jojo Rabbit or OUATIH could too and I wouldn’t be too surprised.
Two acting noms for Booksmart yet not in best comedy is crazy.
Darling, Streep is getting nominated.
Would be a disgrace.
My thoughts on the race so far Picture – Irishman Director – Greta Gerwig Actor – Joaquin Actress – Renee Sup Actor – Brad Pitt Sup Actress – This one im stuck on , but i could see a dern win for sure or Pugh, Robie or even Maggie Smith
Gerwig is not even getting nominated.
Hopefully Alfre Woodard sweeps up everything!

Joe Pesci is getting nominated.
Y’all better not get me overexcited about Close next year. Despite her having the upper hand, I can still see some major obstacles coming her way.
First, Hillbilly Elegy will need huge critical support like Marriage Story and The Irishman, or at least just critical support to be taken seriously at award season.
Second, it also needs to be nominated across various boards outside of Close and Adams to give Close more recognition.
Third, Adams will vote split with her any way whether y’all want it or not. The only way they can avoid vote split is either, Close is pushed to lead, because let’s be real, her character is always the second key character in the book and will be in the movie unless they twist it around; or either Adams or Close (less likely unless they twist it around) will be non-factor and unimportant to the plot.
Fourth, this film better be regarded as an insight into America’s poverty and how a man got away from it and changed his life instead of a mere nonsensical story about the hillbilly class. People will still be swayed by the title regardless.
Fifth, this movie can be prevented from being promoted because its author is a republican and there will be an outcry from the far-left media considering Trump can once again win next year’s presidential election. I’d say this movie with such title comes out at the worst possible time, and Ron Howard better not include any political agenda in the movie!
In conclusion, despite major hope for her, I still think Close is far from being the front-runner for a win this early!

The Cable Guy
Lol, wait people are actually expecting the Scorcese to be ready for next year? That’s not happening. Anyway, it’s wild to say but I’m genuinely predicting Close and Pfeiffer to both win in the same night, which would be unreal lol. I hope I don’t jinx it, but I really do feel like it’s plausible. Close has a winning role in Hillbilly Elegy and if the film is good, the only thing standing in her way of the Oscar is co star competition with Adams (which might actually be a problem considering they’re both absurdly overdue) but Close still has the better role, imo. She also has Four Good Days, which is also a baity role but I’m a bit more skeptical about how that film will turn out, quality wise. Pfeiffer, on the other hand, has a super juicy lead role and the film was bought by SPC before they even started shooting which makes me think they’re at least confident in the script. The director has a good track record with regards to his films being critically acclaimed, but he’s never had awards success. But with SPC behind it and a seemingly good cast so far (Pfeiffer, Hedges, Letts), maybe it could break out. If SPC could do to Pfeiffer what they did to Moore, I’d die.
Seeing Pfeiffer and Close posing together with their respective Oscars would be one of the great Oscar moments.

Thanks for the help! I’ve decided to remove Baumbach and replace him with Gerwig, just for the simple fact alone that Marriage Story is a Netflix film (which I feel may be overshadowed by The Irishman‘s campaign) and the fact that he’ll most likely be nominated for Best Original Screenplay. Cheers!
You finally came to your senses. Marriage Story was never going to be Netflix main horse.
