Oscars Nominations Predictions 2019

Back to the saddle right in time. Here are my predictions for today (yes, it’s already morning of 22nd here in Finland).

The 85th Academy Awards® will air live on Oscar® Sunday, February 24, 2013.

OSCARS 2019 NOMINATIONS PREDICTIONS

BEST PICTURE

  • A Star Is Born

  • Green Book

  • Roma

  • The Favourite

  • BlacKkKlansman

  • If Beale Street Could Talk

  • Vice

  • Black Panther

  • First Man


Mary Poppins Returns

  • A Quiet Place

  • Bohemian Rhapsody

I’m going back and worth with this category as I really wish that A Quiet Place would be there. And why not Black Panther too but then again it would mean that Bohemian Rhapsody would be cut (wouldn’t mind that but the hype…) and there would be total 10 in. So I’m sticking with this now. EDIT. No, I’m not. Taking out Bohemian Rhapsody and adding Black Panther after counting how many other nominations I’m predicting for them.

DIRECTOR

  • Roma – Alfonso Cuarón

  • BlacKkKlansman – Spike Lee

  • A Star Is Born – Bradley Cooper

  • Green Book – Peter Farrelly

  • The Favourite – Yorgos Lanthimos


  • Vice – Adam McKay
  • Cold War – Pawel Pawlikowski

I’m a bit uncertain with Lanthimos, he could be replaced by either of bubbling unders.

ACTOR

  • Vice – Christian Bale

  • A Star Is Born – Bradley Cooper

  • Bohemian Rhapsody – Rami Malek

  • Green Book – Viggo Mortensen

  • First Reformed – Ethan Hawke


  • BlacKkKlansman – John David Washington

I want to believe that Hawke’s hype carries him through.

  • The Favourite – Olivia Colman

  • A Star Is Born – Lady Gaga

  • The Wife – Clenn Close

  • Can You Ever Forgive Me? – Melissa McCarthy

  • Roma – Yalitza Aparicio


  • Mary Poppins Returns – Emily Blunt

Here I’m gambling on all the voters to vote Blunt in supporting for A Quiet Place and thus giving room for Aparicio.

SUPPORTING ACTOR

  • Green Book – Mahershala Ali

  • A Star Is Born – Sam Elliot

  • Can You Ever Forgive Me? – Richard E. Grant

  • BlacKkKlansman – Adam Driver

  • Beautiful Boy – Timothee Chalamet

  • Black Panther – Michael B. Jordan

I just wish that Jordan would be nominated. He was the best thing in Black Panther and so hot!!!
