2020 Oscar Predictions: Best Director

director predictions 5 21 2020

With an entire cinematic year in flux,  if the Academy has an opportunity to choose from this year’s slate of winners, we could be afforded an inventive, inspired slate of filmmakers…or this could be business as usual. We’re also looking for some of the big #FilmTwitter and “fanboy” directors to have their shot at big gold like David Fincher (“Mank“), Christopher Nolan (“Tenet“), and more. We’re also waiting to see if overdue/newly minted favorites/very promising auteurs will be able to get their films in under the wire minus big-time festival buzz. i.e. Ridley Scott (“The Last Duel“), Taika Waititi (“Next Goal Wins“), or Chloé Zhao (“Nomadland“).

AND THE PREDICTED NOMINEES ARE:
