AwardsCircuit Staff Releases The Final Predictions for the Oscars


For the final Oscar Predictions commentary: READ – “Oscars: Final Predictions As Voting Comes To A Close On The Most Open Race Ever

With the Oscars just hours away, you are likely getting the jitters regarding the daunting questions that are on the horizon:

  • Does “Roma” have enough #1 votes to win Best Picture?
  • Is Rami Malek really the assured thing we think he is for “Bohemian Rhapsody?”
  • Can Glenn Close finally win her long overdue Oscar for “The Wife?”
  • Did all the Mahershala Ali wins this season for “Green Book” really mean he was winning the Academy Award or is there an upset looming?
  • What did all those snubs for Regina King for “If Beale Street Could Talk” really mean?
  • Was the Writers Guild Awards really onto something when they rewarded “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” last weekend?
  • Did the Critics Choice give hope for “First Reformed” in Original Screenplay?
  • Will the Academy mess up the “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” win by picking anything else?
  • How many Oscars will “Black Panther” win?
  • How many Oscars will “The Favourite” win?
  • How many Oscars will “Vice” win?
  • What in the hell is winning Film Editing and is it “BlacKkKlansman?”
  • Can “Mary Queen of Scots” zip by the other two films in the Makeup and Hairstyling category?
  • Will “First Man” go home with nothing in hand?
  • Can Marvel finally win a Visual Effects Oscar (or any Oscar at that) with “Avengers: Infinity War?”
  • With “First Man” out of Original Score, is there hope for “Mary Poppins Returns?”
  • Are the rumors true that Kendrick Lamar’s song may be upsetting Lady Gaga?
  • Did enough voters see “Free Solo” in IMAX?
  • With all the money put behind “Cold War,” and a lone director spot, is there a spot for it to take an award?
  • Why don’t they show the shorts to the public in a better way prior to the ceremony?

That’s a lot of questions and not a lot of answers, at least not prior to the ceremony.  For your enjoyment (laughter?), the AwardsCircuit Staff (that served all of 2018) has weighed in with their final Oscar Predictions and we are all over the place.  Which is good?
