As for Score (the other category I was predicting Dune to win), I’m going to go with Mank. Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are beloved enough, I think, to win their 2nd Oscar 10 years after the first one. It would make more sense than Gorranson winning his 2nd two years after his first (When was the last time that happened? Pretty sure it was John Williams for Jaws and Star Wars). I’m also predicting Hans Zimmer for Hilbilly Elegy, assuming that film still makes it’s release date.
Desplat won his second 3 years after his first, off the top off my head.
You got me wondering though, so I looked into it. After John Williams, these are the people that managed.
Alan Manken also managed it in 1990 and 1992 for The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast.
Howard Shore pulled it off too, for the first and last installments of LOTR (2002 and 2004).
Gustavo Santaolalla managed to win his second the year after his first (2006, 2007). To date, those are his only nominations too.September 20, 2020 at 9:43 am #1203720308
Frances has everything she needs to win, but she won her second Oscar two years ago, i don’t think she will become the third woman (i think) to win three acting Oscars.
She would be the fourth after Katharine Hepburn, Ingrid Bergman and Meryl Streep. Hepburn is the only one to have four (all lead).September 9, 2020 at 1:45 pm #1203695880
Could someone more versed in predicting the Documentary category shine some light on Robin’s Wish, the documentary dealing with Robin Williams’ last days? Does it have a shot at a nomination or a win?February 6, 2020 at 4:14 am #1203332598

Two movies pop out for me. Firstly Parasite, which although I heard was getting a lot of praise, absolutely blew me away. What a rollercoaster.
Secondly, a fantastic French movie in an extremely good year for French cinema. I’m talking about The Wolf’s Call. Interesting subject, entrancing and perfectly executed. I was on the edge of my seat for the entire movie.January 11, 2020 at 12:51 am #1203275072

For me definitely choosing Jones over Fiennes. His work for Schindler’s List was incredible, menacing and very impressive. He was robbed. Can’t see why the Academy went with Jones.October 26, 2019 at 6:29 am #1203153574
I have a few beefs:
Omar Sharif being snubbed for his soulful performance in Dr Zhivago (while his co-star Tom Courtenay was recognised, I felt they also unfairly ignored Geraldine Chaplin). As much as I enjoy Julie Christie in general, I didn’t care for her performance much so no issue there.
Similarly, James Dean being ignored for Rebel Without a Cause. While his co-stars were noticed, I thought all three were as deserving as each other. A dream of a love triangle.
Considering I am yet to see a better performance by an actress this decade than Lesley Manville in Another Year, I still have issue with that snub (especially as she could have landed in either category).
I still struggle with the concept that Irene Jacob remains without an Oscar nomination, especially as the Academy has been kind to French actresses many times. For me she was win worthy in Red/The Double Life of Veronique.
Dean was nominated already that year for East of Eden, would you rather see him being nominated for Rebel? I do prefer his performance in Rebel over Eden.
