The Actual Nominees (8 total):


"1917"
“Ford v Ferrari”
“The Irishman”

“Joker”

Reasons for Prediction: With Sam Mendes directing and Roger Deakins behind the camera, this is sure to be prestige material. WWI has been hot with the academy in the last few years. Thomas Newman is no stranger to award-winning movies.




Results:



Nominated for Best Picture






THREE Wins




Roger Deakins





Guillaume Rocheron
Greg Butler
Dominic Tuohy





Mark Taylor
Stuart Wilson





SIX Additional Nominations:



Directing (Sam Mendes)

Original Screenplay (Sam Mendes & Krysty Wilson-Cairns)

Production Design (Dennis Gassner & Lee Sandales)

Score (Thomas Newman)

Makeup & Hairstyling (Naomi Donne, Tristan Versluis, Rebecca Cole)

Sound Editing (Oliver Tarney & Rachael Tate)


Reasons for Prediction: The beloved Tom Hanks is playing a real person who is beloved. Matthew Rhys is getting into the award-winning mix. Marielle Heller is an up-and-coming female director the Academy may actual like enough to nominate for director and picture... maybe.




Results:



NOT Nominated for Best Picture



ZERO Wins


ONE Nomination:



Supporting Actor (Tom Hanks)


Reasons for Prediction: All-star bad-ass female cast. Current events topic. Anti-Fox and Trump.




Results:



NOT Nominated for Best Picture


ONE Win



Kazu Hiro
Anne Morgan
Vivian Baker





TWO Additional Nominations:


Lead Actress (Charlize Theron)

Supporting Actress (Margot Robbie)


Reasons for Prediction: All star cast lead by Eddie Murphy, who seems like he is in a great spot to get some Academy love. It's wild enough of a premise to get attention. There is buzz it is an entertaining movie. Netflix has been pushing hard for awards love the last few years and has found success. This seems like the least likely out of my picks, but I love it as a dark horse.




Results:



NOT Nominated for Best Picture


ZERO Wins


ZERO Nominations

Reasons for Prediction: Damon and Bale are loved by the Academy. Mangold is hot off the success of "Logan". It's an American true story.




Results:



Nominated for Best Picture






TWO Wins




Andrew Buckland
Michael McCusker




Donald Sylvester





ONE Additional Nomination:



Sound Mixing (Paul Massey, David Giammarco, Steven Morrow)


Reasons for Prediction: Scorsese back in the gangster genre with his old go-to stars De Niro, Keitel, Pesci, and newcomer... to Scorsese, Pacino. It's a true American tale of epic size and it said to be about much more than just gangsters. Once again, Netflix is pushing for awards and put A LOT of money into this one; so they'll be campaigning... if it's really good. Of course it is, it's Scorsese!




Results:



Nominated for Best Picture





ZERO Wins


NINE Additional Nominations:


Directing (Martin Scorsese)

Cinematography (Rodrigo Prieto)

Supporting Actor (Joe Pesci)

Supporting Actor (Al Pacino)

Adapted Screenplay (Steven Zaillian)

Production Design (Bob Shaw & Regina Graves)

Film Editing (Thelma Schoonmaker)

Visual Effects (Pablo Helman, Leandro Estebecorena, Nelson Sepulveda, Stephane Grabli)

Costume Design (Sandy Powell & Chris Peterson)


Reasons for Prediction: Michael B Jordan is primed for an Oscar nod, Foxx is loved by the Academy. It's the kind of true story they love, too. I'm not sure about the director, Destin Cretton, or some other crew choices; so this one isn't a sure thing.




Results:



NOT Nominated for Best Picture

ZERO Nominations

Reasons for Prediction: There was instant buzz for this oft-remade story when Gerwig became slated to direct. It doesn't seem to have died down. The very likable and award-loving cast will help keep this prestige enough. But, I think Gerwig has to make this different and fresh enough to garner the nomination.




Results:



Nominated for Best Picture






ONE Win



Jacqueline Durran




FOUR Additional Nominations:


Lead Actress (Saoirse Ronan)

Supporting Actress (Florence Pugh)

Adapted Screenplay (Greta Gerwig)

Score (Alexandre Desplat)


Reasons for Prediction: It's a Tarantino movie about Hollywood, it's a shoe-in. The mostly positive response from critics, fans, and solid box office will all help keep the nomination hopes alive. I have strong doubts it can win, though.




Results:



Nominated for Best Picture






TWO Wins




Brad Pitt





Barbara Ling
Nancy Haigh





SEVEN Additional Nominations:


Directing (Quentin Tarantino)

Lead Actor (Leonardo DiCaprio)

Cinematography (Robert Richardson)

Original Screenplay (Quentin Tarantino)

Costume Design (Arianne Phillips)

Sound Editing (Wylie Stateman)

Sound Mixing (Michael Minkler, Christian P. Minkler, Mark Ulano)


Reasons for Prediction: The Safdie Brothers have a wild imagination and could possible change the game even more with Sandler in the lead. I don't know yet, but I'm assuming it will be a mostly serious role for him, which helps its chances greatly.
