Movie list created by Stehako
This list was created with predictions by Stephen H. Koontz
Created AUGUST 2020
This is obviously a crazy year to try and predict nominations for this; with so many pictures getting pushed. I waited a little bit longer than usual, to make sure I knew of all the ones most likely still getting a 2020 release.

Reasons for Prediction: It's had a very strong response at festivals. Hopkins and Coleman are loved by voters. It's from a debut director, which isn't common with Oscar noms, but could be of interest.
Reasons for Prediction: Anderson got a lot of Oscar love for "Grand Budapest Hotel" so hopefully he garners similar attention, because this looks to have the same caliber.
Reasons for Prediction: Fincher is directing and it's about movie-making and about the development for one of the most revered movies of all time. Oh yeah, and did I mention Gary Oldman in the lead?
Reasons for Prediction: Tom Hanks in the lead, directed by Paul Greengrass. Both are a good mix for Academy attention. It's about war, could be an epic.
Reasons for Prediction: Guillermo del Toro directing, after his Best Picture win for "Shape of Water". It has an Academy-loving cast.
Reasons for Prediction: Frances McDormand in the lead. It has a female director, which should be cause for a push to nomination.
Reasons for Prediction: Sofia Copolla films have only been nominated once, but this seems like a possible crowd-pleaser that could be the ticket for a nom.
Reasons for Prediction: A high-concept idea that celebrates Black voices and icons. Directed by a Black woman, who is also a likable actress (Regina King).
Reasons for Prediction: Chris Nolan has been long over due, the reception hasn't been overwhelmingly great, but strong enough in a not-so-crowded field.
Reasons for Prediction: Aaron Sorkin writing a movie, might as well give him a writing nom already, but a best picture nomination will be tougher. This is a dark horse pick, but I have a good feeling it will have the right mix of on-screen and off-screen talent to find its way in.
