id=“article-body“ class=“row“ section=“article-body“> Parasite recently won best film not in the English language at Oscars precursor the BAFTAs.

Warner Bros. Today’s the day we cap off awards season with the Oscars, which kick off at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. At this stage, one question surrounds the best picture category: Will it be Parasite or 1917? With all the other major awards ceremonies behind us, our best picture predictions are educated and totally 100% accurate.

Well, at least we can be certain of one thing: Joaquin Phoenix will win best actor for his blistering performance as Arthur Fleck in Joker. Phoenix has swept the best lead actor categories across awards season, from the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards to the BAFTAs.

1917 may have sealed the best picture win, having taken that award at the Producers Guild of America Awards. The PGAs have had the same top prize winner as the Oscars for the past decade, bar two exceptions. But don’t worry, Parasite is still in the race, having taken the SAGs‘ top prize: best ensemble. As for The Irishman and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, they’ve pretty much left the chat.

Let’s do a quick rundown of who we think will win, taking into account BAFTA, PGA, Golden Globe, 우리카지노추천 Critics‘ Choice and SAG winners. We’ll also consider nominations in crucial Oscars categories that normally signify a top prize winner: writing, 우리카지노총판 directing, acting and editing.

The Oscars will take place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Feb. 9 and will air on ABC.

Andrew Cooper Predictions

Best picture

1917 — will win

The Irishman

Jojo Rabbit


Little Women

Marriage Story

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Parasite — want to win

Ford v Ferrari

Despite lacking an editing nod (that didn’t hurt Birdman), 1917 has its nose in front, especially with the PGA win. Ultimately, The Irishman and Once Upon a Time have failed to pick up the top award in any of the preceding awards shows, and Joker, despite leading with 11 nominations, is a comic book movie. Comic book movies don’t win. In any case, we all know the tour de force that is Parasite deserves to win. Could its surprise SAG win offer hope this could actually come true? Given no one has a bad word to say about Parasite, the Oscars‘ „preferential ballot“ may work in the movie’s favor.

Best director

Bong Joon-ho, Parasite — want to win

Sam Mendes, 1917 — will win

Todd Phillips, Joker

Martin Scorsese, The Irishman

Quentin Tarantino, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Mendes has a swathe of wins under his belt, most recently the BAFTA. Tarantino has never won, and it would be a disaster if he never did. But that being said, let Bong Joon-ho win.

Best actor

Joaquin Phoenix, Joker — will win

Leonardo DiCaprio, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Antonio Banderas, Pain and Glory

Adam Driver, Marriage Story — want to win

Jonathan Pryce, The Two Popes

Joaquin Phoenix will win, but make him sing a rendition of Being Alive (Adam Driver did it in Marriage Story) before he receives the award.

Best actress

Cynthia Erivo, Harriet

Renée Zellweger, Judy — will win

Scarlett Johansson, Marriage Story — want to win

Charlize Theron, Bombshell

Saoirse Ronan, Little Women

Zellweger is swimming in best actress awards (her latest is the BAFTA), so it wouldn’t be surprising to see her transformative performance garner her first best actress Oscar. Scarlett Johansson deserves a mention for her impressive year, with standout performances in Marriage Story as well as Jojo Rabbit. Sadly, Awkwafina and The Farewell aren’t in the Oscars conversation, not even for best foreign-language film.

Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Saoirse Ronan and Eliza Scanlen in Little Women.

Wilson Webb/Sony Pictures Best supporting actress

Laura Dern, 우리카지노계열총판 Marriage Story — will win

Florence Pugh, Little Women — want to win

Margot Robbie, Bombshell

Kathy Bates, Richard Jewell

Scarlett Johansson, Jojo Rabbit

Midsommar, Little Women, the upcoming Black Widow — even though Florence Pugh won’t win, she’s paved a huge career ahead of her. Dern is a shoe-in after taking the BAFTA on top of her SAG. Where’s Jennifer Lopez? If Hustlers had been directed by Martin Scorsese, this category may have upped its diversity.

Best supporting actor

Brad Pitt, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood — will win, want to win

Al Pacino, The Irishman

Joe Pesci, The Irishman

Anthony Hopkins, The Two Popes

Tom Hanks, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

Brad Pitt proved he’s still got A-list star power (and abs) in Once Upon a Time, having already taken the Golden Globe, SAG and BAFTA. Pacino and Pesci will split the vote for 우리카지노추천 The Irishman, and Hopkins and Hanks haven’t really been in the conversation.

Best film editing

The Irishman

Jojo Rabbit


Ford v Ferrari — will win

Parasite — want to win

Ford v Ferrari (which goes by Le Mans ’66 in the UK) is a sports movie with lots of fast cuts. Given it took the BAFTA and has no competition from 1917 (not nominated in the category), let’s go with that one.

Best original screenplay

Rian Johnson, Knives Out — want to win (tie)

Noah Baumbach, Marriage Story

Sam Mendes & Krysty Wilson-Cairns, 1917

Quentin Tarantino, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood — will win

Bong Joon-ho, Parasite — want to win (tie)

While Joon-ho recently won the BAFTA, Tarantino has the edge after Globes and Critics‘ Choice wins.

Best adapted screenplay

Steven Zaillian, The Irishman

Greta Gerwig, Little Women — will win, want to win

Taika Waititi, Jojo Rabbit

Anthony McCarten, The Two Popes

Todd Phillips & Scott Silver, Joker

The Oscars are still mulling around in the dark ages (with the BAFTAs) by failing to nominate a woman for best director. Instead, Greta Gerwig has a good chance of taking a conciliatory writing win, although The Irishman may be very close on her tail if it fails to score wins in the other categories.
