La La Land (2016)

1.

No change. Still the favorite, but not a lock to win. It missed out on an ensemble nod at the SAGs, and no movie has won top prize without one since Braveheart in 1995, the first SAG ceremony. It's still likely to win, but there are other movie's that are getting support from all branches that could really leapfrog.

2.

Locked in, could pull a Spotlight style upset. It's got the love.

3.

A lock for the nomination, but won't likely win. Probably not "safe" enough.

4.

Strong reviews and love from the actor's branch essentially guarantee a nomination.

5.

Arrival has had a very strong awards season, with a bundle of nominations and wins from various groups and guilds. I don't want to get cocky, but it really is looking locked in.

6.

As I expected, Lion has done better than my previous expectations, and is looking pretty strong here. Not a lock, but certainly a probable nominee.

7.

With prominent showings at most major awards bodies, Hell or High Water appears to have struck a chord with it's well-executed and timely story. I could see it missing, but it's looking like it'll be in.

8.

Once an insider, Hacksaw Ridge has had an excellent month, picking nominations everywhere it needs to. It's still likely on the edge of a nomination, but I still see it in.

9.

With PGA, WGA, and SAG noms, as well as slew of other important guild nominations, Hidden Figures has got a lot of momentum. While it could be tough to secure the votes (I have a feeling that the top eight are going to dominate the ballots), 9 nominees feels right for this year, and this looks to be the movie to take the final spot.

Other Possibilities


10.

Despite strong reviews and a legendary director, Silence has gotten no love thus far. Scorsese's last movie The Wolf of Wall Street had similar luck, but even it had a couple of nominations beforehand. It missed at essentially every major guild, outside cinematography, and has very little momentum. It could surprise, but it just seems like a long shot.

11.

After surprise PGA and WGA noms, Deadpool is firmly in the hunt for a Best Picture nomination. While it would be a real surprise to see it make the cut, the credentials that it's got make it impossible to ignore the possibility.

12.

Jackie just hasn't had the awards season that Fox Searchlight was hoping for. While it's getting strong reviews, and is likely the favorite to win a couple of categories, it hasn't shown up anywhere other than the Independent Spirit Awards, which doesn't really instill much confidence (the Spirits can help momentum, but they can't be the only bit). It still could get in, but I think it's on the outside looking in.

13.

Loving did make it in at the Critics' Choice Awards, but missed out completely at the SAGs, and only got made the acting categories at the Globes. As with several above, a PGA bid could certainly help, but I expect this one to have a stronger shot in the acting categories.

14.

Warner Bros. has a hell of a track record here, usually scoring at least one nominee (they were even able to get Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close a few years ago), but Sully really looks to be flying under the radar, and it doesn't really have a great shot in any other category (i.e. you don't get a picture nom and nothing else).

Best Director

People who added this item 300 Average listal rating (213 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 7.9

1.

Damien Chazelle- La La Land
Probably the winner.

2.

Barry Jenkins- Moonlight
Potential spoiler.

3.

Kenneth Lonergan- Manchester by the Sea
Likely not winning, but it would be shocking if he didn't make the cut.

4.

Denis Villeneuve- ArrivalAs Arrival has risen towards the front of the BP race, so to has Villeneuve's shot at a nomination. While it has a great script, the movie is really a directors movie, with every element having to come together precisely for maximum impact, and I think the voters will recognize that.

5.

Martin Scorsese- Silence
As I said in the first list, I think that Scorsese is so respected that even if Silence misses the picture cut, and that's looking like a very possible scenario, he could still make the cut. I'm sticking to that.

Other Possibilities


6.

Garth Davis- Lion
After surprise DGA nominations, and Lion's popularity throughout guild nomination season, Davis is near the top of the pack to take the fifth spot. My only qualm is that the DGA and the Oscars rarely go 5-for-5, and not once in this decade. He's certainly a possibility, but I'm just too unsure.

7.

Denzel Washington- Fences
While actor/directors have had great success here in the past, they've more or less opted for smaller, more artsy options for the last spot. Washington does strong work behind the camera, but Fences is really being looked at more for what's going on on-screen. The degree of difficulty, so to say, isn't as much as it was for the five above.

8.

David Mackenzie- Hell or High Water
Hell or High Water has had a surprisingly strong awards-season, and could have the love to push it into one more category. He's something of a longshot, but a Mackenzie nomination really wouldn't be surprising.

9.

Mel Gibson- Hacksaw Ridge
Hacksaw Ridge has emerged as a likely player in numerous categories, with all of that do to Gibson's direction. Its certainly checks the degree of difficulty box, the action and violence alone do that, but I'm still not sure if the Academy is going to wholeheartedly embrace Gibson after his pass digressions. Then again, they gave this award to Roman Polanski, so maybe they just care about the work.

10.

Tom Ford- Nocturnal Animals

Best Actor

People who added this item 152 Average listal rating (96 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.3
Fences (2016)

1.

Casey Affleck- Manchester By the Sea
The frontrunner.

2.

Denzel Washington- Fences
Lock.

3.

Ryan Gosling- La La Land
Lock.

4.

Andrew Garfield- Hacksaw Ridge
After BAFTA, SAG, BFCA (Critics Choice), and HFPA (Globes) nominations, Garfield looks very likely for his work in Hacksaw. He's not a lock, people with those credentials have missed before (Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler is one of the biggest that comes to mind), but he's probable.

5.

Joel Edgerton- Loving
Missed at the SAGs, and the film isn't having the impact that was expected; Edgerton's chances aren't as shining as they once were. But I'm betting on the true life story winning out, and his respectable work will make the cut.

Other Possibilities


6.

Viggo Mortensen- Captain Fantastic
I know that I said that if he picked up a SAG nod he'd probably be in, and he likely is, but the SAGs rarely go five-for-five with the Oscars (and, based on my other predictions, definitely not in three categories), and Mortensen seems like the most likely casualty. This is really a guess, so I have no specifics, but I just don't see it.

7.

Tom Hanks- Sully
Missed big at the Globes and the SAGs, Hanks chances look fairly slim. Still, he's a liked as they come, and Sully could end up connecting with older male voters the way other Eastwood films have.

8.

Andrew Garfield- Silence
Not likely since Hacksaw Ridge appears to be his dog in this race, but still a possibility.

9.

Ryan Reynolds- Deadpool
A long shot, but he's had some success this awards-season. It also appears that Deadpool has some major fans, with the film surprisingly scoring a WGA nod. It's not gonna happen, but I don't want to say that I didn't see it if it does.

10.

Jake Gyllenhaal- Nocturnal Animals
Surprise BAFTA nod puts him as a possible spoiler, but it's unlikely.

Best Actress

People who added this item 650 Average listal rating (476 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 8
Arrival (2016)

1.

Natalie Portman- Jackie
No the frontrunner, but the likeliest to get a nomination.

2.

Emma Stone- La La Land
In.

3.

Amy Adams- Arrival
Finally looking like a lock.

4.

Isabelle Huppert- Elle
After a surprise upset at the Globes, Huppert is great here. Though the HFPA and the Oscars don't have the same voting base, only twice has the winner of the Globe for Best Actress - Drama missed the cut, with one of those misses tying with two other women that both made it in. These last three spots are close, but the stats are on her side.

5.

Meryl Streep- Florence Foster Jenkins
After BAFTA, SAG, and HFPA noms, Streep is looking pretty strong right now. It's possible that she misses out to newer performances, ones by breakouts and ones by "due" actresses, but Streep is Streep, and she's more respected than most. Plus, the Cecil B. Demille Award speech went over incredibly well; many will want to reward her for it.

Other Possibilities


6.

Ruth Negga- Loving
She could sneak in, but the momentum has died down exponentially for Negga in the past month. Definitely has a shot though.

7.

Annette Bening- 20th Century Women
20th Century Women is flying incredibly under the radar, to the point where I'm just not convince that it'll be able to break through the pack in any major category. Bening once seemed like a lock, but a key miss at the SAGs hints that the movie doesn't have as many fans on its side. She could still definitely make it in, but she's looking more like a longshot now.

8.

Emily Blunt- The Girl on the Train
The surprise SAG nod definitely puts her in the conversation, but the film's mixed critical success can't do anything but hinder her chances, especially in a category with great performances in well-regarded films.

9.

Jessica Chastain- Miss Sloane
Globe nomination puts her in the hunt, but the movie got mixed reviews and did poorly at the box office. It's possible, but unlikely.

10.

Taraji P. Henson- Hidden Figures
She's missed out everywhere, but if Hidden Figures does better than expected, she could definitely sneak in.

Best Supporting Actress

People who added this item 258 Average listal rating (187 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.8

1.

Viola Davis- Fences
She's winning. Probably the strongest acting lock there is.

2.

Michelle Williams- Manchester By the Sea
Locked in.

3.

Naomie Harris- Moonlight
Lock.

4.

Nicole Kidman- Lion
Not a lock necessarily, but she's made it in everywhere that she needs to. Probably in.

5.

Octavia Spencer- Hidden Figures
After a month where she made it in at the Globes and SAGS, Spencer looks like she'll probably be in; this is probably the most firm category this year. These five appear to be the consensus five, but...

Other Possibilities


6.

Janelle Monae- Hidden Figures
Could Monae overtake costar Spencer, or will Hidden Figures ride it's growing momentum for two supporting actress nominations? Possibly, but it looks too tight at the moment.

7.

Greta Gerwig- 20th Century Women
Critics' Choice nod, but nothing since, and the movie's momentum has petered out. Could get in, but it looks like a longshot.

Best Supporting Actor

People who added this item 260 Average listal rating (202 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.7

1.

Mahershala Ali- Moonlight
Lost the Globe, but he's still the frontrunner. A win at the SAGs would, and likely will, confirm that.

2.

Jeff Bridges- Hell or High Water
He's in.

3.

Dev Patel- Lion
Like his Lion costar, he's showed up everywhere he needs to, and his film looks like a BP nominee. Likely in.

4.

Hugh Grant- Florence Foster Jenkins
After BAFTA, HFPA, and SAG nominations, Grant seems pretty strong here. It's a crowded category, but he looks pretty solid.

5.

Lucas Hedges- Manchester By the Sea
Likely in, but what I said earlier could still pan out. The Academy doesn't really nominate younger guys, so they could leave him out in favor of someone "due". Still, it would be a bit of a surprise to see him not make it.

Other Possibilities


6.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson- Nocturnal Animals
After a huge surprise win at the Globes (likely the biggest this season), Taylor-Johnson is now firmly in the race, with a better shot than even his much-loved costar Shannon. It's been 41 years since a Globe winner didn't make the cut here, but I think that top five is just too strong. I usually go with the stats, but I'm just finding it hard to take any of my five predicted nominees out. I'd suggest you do, but I just can't.

7.

Michael Shannon- Nocturnal Animals
Still a possibility, but this category looks a bit tough to crack into, especially since his costar Aaron Taylor-Johnson has emerged as a genuine contender. Shannon's performance is a hell of a scene-stealer though, and he's become such a respected presence that I could definitely see him sneak in.

8.

Ben Foster- Hell or High Water
Can he sneak in over his Costar Bridges, or can Hell of High Water sore two nods here? Bridges is pretty much a lock, and there hasn't been two nominees from one film here in 25 years. Could happen, but the stats are against him.

9.

Issey Ogata- Silence
He's getting the best notices from the Silence cast, and Scorsese films usually do well here. He's certainly a longshot, but a surprise amount of support for the film could catapult him in.

Best Original Screenplay

People who added this item 435 Average listal rating (295 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.1
The Lobster (2015)

1.

Kenneth Lonergan- Manchester by the Sea
With Moonlight being moved to Adapted, Lonergan is the frontrunner here.

2.

Damien Chazelle- La La Land
Locked in, and could possibly surprise for the win.

3.

Taylor Sheridan- Hell or High Water
Looks like a lock.

4.

Efthymis Filippou and Giorgos Lanthimos- The Lobster
With this category having been depleted (along with Moonlight, Loving was also moved to adapted), The Lobster looks like a very strong contender here. It's original concept and execution are tailor-made for this category.

5.

Matt Ross- Captain Fantastic
Despite okay reviews and disappointing box office, Captain Fantastic has hung in the race a lot longer than expected, culminating in a Best Ensemble nomination at the SAGs. While I'd be completely surprised by a BP nod, screenplay has always been the place to recognize well-liked movies not strong enough for other categories.

Other Possibilities


6.

Mike Mills- 20th Century Women
As I've stated several times already, Women doesn't really have any momentum to speak of. But all it would really take to get here would be a strong, passionate group of fans for the film. It could get it, and is a very strong bet.

7.

Noah Oppenheimer- Jackie
Jackie has had a disappointing awards-season, and Oppenheimer's script was never really that likely a candidate before. With the loss of two major contenders though, it could sneak in.

Moonlight (2016)

1.

Barry Jenkins and Tarell Alvin McCraney- Moonlight
Moving into a category without a clear frontrunner, Moonlight now appears to be the one to beat here.

2.

Eric Heisserer- Arrival
Lock.

3.

August Wilson- Fences
Lock.

4.

Luke Davies- Lion
Likely in, though the last three spots are a bit tricky.

5.

Tom Ford- Nocturnal Animals
The credentials for this don't really matter (a WGA nod, and the only adapted script that made into the Globes field), but like I set earlier, it's the trickiness of the plot. There are four movies fighting it out for the last two spots and, for some reason, my gut is telling me that Animals will make the cut.

Other Possibilities


6.

Allison Schroeder and Theodore Melfi- Hidden Figures
While the movie itself is building just the right amount of momentum, I'm not sure that the script is. It got in at the WGAs and the BAFTAs, but it's not against the full competition that it'll be against at the Oscars. If either Lion or Nocturnal Animals love falters, this will be there to take the last spot.

7.

Jeff Nichols- Loving
Moved to Adapted, Loving's chances now look pretty slim. It got WGA love, but that was in original, though that love could extend over to him here.

8.

Jay Cocks & Martin Scorsese- Silence

2.

Dustin O’Halloran and Hauschka- Lion

3.

Nicolas Britell- Moonlight
Britell's sweeping, intimate score is likely to make the cut, thanks to likely Moonlight love.

4.

Mica Levi- Jackie
Still probable, but the film's loss of momentum has put this category into doubt. I think that it still makes it in, but I'm really unsure.

5.

Abel Korzeniowski- Nocturnal Animals
Ranging from modern electronic notes, to classic Hitchcockian sprawl, Korzeniowski's epic score is one that likely has what it takes to attract all takes. I'd bet that it's down to this and Rogue One, another great score, but with Animals' rising momentum, I think it sneaks into a couple of categories this year.

3.

Rodrgigo Prieto- Silence
Despite Silence doing poorly everywhere else, Prieto managed to get an ASC nod. Probably in, though it's no lock.

4.

James Laxton- Moonlight
ASC nominee of a probable Best Picture nominee. Likely in.

5.

Seamus McGarvey- Nocturnal Animals
Like I said with score, I think Nocturnal Animals is going to sneak into a couple of technical categories, and McGarvey is a favorite in this department. His crisp photography, mixing with the visual aesthetic for both storylines (cold and sterile in the real world, vibrant for the story world) is one of the film's finest features. A BAFTA and Critic's choice nominee.

Stéphane Fontaine- Jackie

Best Makeup & Hairstyling

People who added this item 341 Average listal rating (227 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.1

1.

Florence Foster Jenkins
After the category was pretty wiped out (Jackie and Silence both out), I'd bet the requisite "mainly-hairstyling" nominee will likely be Florence Foster Jenkins.

2.

Star Trek Beyond
Showy, sci-fi makeup usually does well here (Mad Max: Fury Road, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Lone Ranger, The Hobbit, Star Trek (2009), etc.) and Star Trek would appear to be this year's.

3.

Deadpool
After it's surprise surge with Guild awards, I'd say that Makeup is it's best possibility.

Other Possibilities


4.

A Man Called Ove
Same team behind last year's surprise nominee here, The 100 Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared. Could be a real spoiler.
