Below are links to articles predicting the winners in all 24 Oscar categories at the 2019 Academy Awards.
Early on in the year, it looked like Lady Gaga had Best Actress in the bag. A Star is Born hit strong, much stronger than The Wife. Over time, A Star is Born has cooled off a bit, particularly following its near shut-out at the Golden Globes. Glenn Close, as a result, has risen back into the conversation as a front-runner.
Nothing is certain, however, and an acting front-runner cannot truly be claimed as a true front-runner until they pick up the SAG award. Until that time, we can only speculate.
The Golden Globes telecast is right around the corner (Sunday, January 6), and Oscar season is in full swing. In a couple of weeks, the Academy will announce its nominations (Tuesday, January 22). In preparation for that, CineFiles has put together a series of predictions in (most of) the 24 categories.
Note: these articles are predictions for what films will get nominated in each category, not who will win in each category.
The Academy has a lot of quality acting talent to sift through in the four acting categories this year.
For Best Actress, a race that began early-on as a close competition between Lady Gaga and Glenn Close, the field has expanded considerably. Gaga’s stock is holding firm; Close’s has sunk a bit since the soft release of The Wife.
With the SAG nominations out, the race is all the more complicated.
Oscar nominations have been announced. As such, it is time to begin CineFiles’ annual slog/tradition of futile guessing as to who/what will win in each of the 24 Academy categories.
Let’s get into it!
Best Actress has what is perhaps the widest gap between the front-runner and the other contenders. I mean, France McDormand is cleaning up from award show to award show. It is difficult to see anyone else taking that Oscar.
But, you know, I have to keep all other options on the table. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be an article to write.
With the Golden Globes behind us and Academy voting officially underway, it is time to discuss the Oscars. Who is going to get nominated? Where are there going to snubs and surprises?
