#OscarNoms: Thoughts & Predictions

oscars

BEST ACTOR:

  • Christian Bale (Vice)
  • Bradley Cooper (A Star Is Born)
  • Willem Dafoe (At Eternity’s Gate)
  • Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody)
  • Viggo Mortensen (Green Book)

WHO SHOULD WIN: Rami Malek

WHO WILL WIN: Christian Bale

While it could be argued that Bohemian Rhapsody doesn’t warrant a Best Picture nomination, few can dispute that Malek’s outstanding performance as the great Freddie Mercury deserves recognition. It’ll be a close fight between the two, but Bale is an Academy favourite, and it looks like he might just scoop his second Oscar this year.

Snubs: Marcello Fonte (Dogman), Ben Foster (Leave No Trace) and Ethan Hawke (First Reformed).

BEST ACTRESS:

  • Yalitza Aparicio (Roma)
  • Glenn Close (The Wife)
  • Olivia Colman (The Favourite)
  • Lady GaGa (A Star Is Born)
  • Melissa McCarthy (Can You Ever Forgive Me?)

WHO SHOULD WIN: Olivia Colman

WHO WILL WIN: Glenn Close

A win for Olivia Colman would be exciting and extremely well-deserved, but it looks like Glenn Close may be on track to win her first Academy Award, having lost 6 times before.

Snubs: Sakura Ando (Shoplifters), Toni Colette (Hereditary), Elsie Fisher (Eighth Grade), Joanna Kulig (Cold War) and Carey Mulligan (Wildlife)
