In alphabetical order. I still have quite a bit of films to catch up on, so this is a work-in-progress.
The Ballad of Buster Scruggs
Mission: Impossible – Fallout

I wonder if BAFTA gives it to Bale because he’s a respected British actor who has never won a BAFTA award. Will Bale’s BAFTA IOU factor in or does Malek have this in the bag, regardless?January 27, 2019 at 5:35 pm #1202750985
Now it depends on whoever wins at BAFTA. The winner of BAFTA will win the Oscar, à la Mark Rylance for Bridge of Spies.January 14, 2019 at 4:24 pm #1202734346
I think Grant’s best shot is at BAFTA, but I am predicting an Ali sweep this year. They both give superb performances!
And, remember, Ali didn’t win at BAFTA for Moonlight. So, à la the Golden Globes, he could win this year to make up for that.January 9, 2019 at 6:51 pm #1202728251
Like the Golden Globes, do you think BAFTA will give Mahershala Ali the Supporting Actor award since they didn’t give it to him for Moonlight?January 9, 2019 at 12:37 am #1202726968
Could someone please remind me why Mary Poppins Returns is a contender, again?
It won no Golden Globes (and was probably nominated there because the HFPA was granted early access to the film). Its reviews, though decent, weren’t overwhelming. It doesn’t even have an extraordinary box office performance. Most of the guilds aren’t showering it with love and it was practically shut out at BAFTA.
So why is this a film that could land a Best Picture nomination?January 9, 2019 at 12:06 am #1202726907
Considering Robbie has both nominations from both SAG and BAFTA, I think she gets in over Foy.January 5, 2019 at 7:02 pm #1202720196
As someone who wants Hawke to win the Oscar, I think Washington is a lock for a nomination.
There has never been an instance in which Denzel Washington lost out on an Oscar nomination after nabbing nominations at the Golden Globes and at SAG. John David Washington has earned both nominations and also stars in a Best Picture hopeful.
On the other hand, Ethan Hawke has lost out on nominations at both the Globes and at SAG and isn’t starring in a Best Picture hopeful. Sure, he has swept all the critic awards, but critics aren’t Oscar voters. The Charlotte Rampling analogy is always passed around but that was a completely different race. That year, she was competing against performances that weren’t in Best Picture hopefuls (that year, only Brie Larson and Saoirse Ronan starred in Best Picture nominees.) This year, however, Hawke is competing against someone in a Best Picture hopeful. This, I believe, completely eradicates his chances of earning a nod.January 2, 2019 at 11:19 pm #1202717030
Please add Mission: Impossible – Fallout in all categories, especially Picture, Director, and Actor (for Tom Cruise.)
Please also add Mandy in all categories, especially Picture, Director, and Supporting Actor (for Linus Roache.)December 10, 2018 at 5:29 pm #1202697223
On A Star is Born winning Best Picture, I have one question regarding its chances. To win Best Picture, you need either a win for directing or a win for writing or both. Not since Chicago has a Best Picture winner not won at least one of the two awards. The year Chicago won Best Picture, it lost out on both Directing and Adapted Screenplay to The Pianist. However, The Pianist wasn’t nominated for either PGA for Best Picture and SAG for Ensemble Cast and Chicago won both awards.
A Star is Born isn’t the frontrunner to win either Director or Adapted Screenplay. It could follow the path of Chicago and win the fundamental precursors only to lose those awards at the Oscars, but I doubt that will be the case.
For those of you predicting it to win Best Picture without it winning either Director or Adapted Screenplay, why do you think it will win Best Picture without winning at least one of those two awards?September 22, 2018 at 2:13 am #1202638746
