Oscars 2019: We Predict the Nominations in All 24 Categories (Photos)
Maybe the Oscar nominations can restore some clarity and civility to a messy and nasty awards season.

But don’t count on it.

This has been a rocky year for most awards contenders, with skeletons unearthed and outrage nurtured and mud flung at a hefty cross-section of the films that could be in the running for the top prizes on Feb. 24. But now it’s time to narrow the field and identify the front runners and the also-rans.

On Tuesday morning, things will get real in a wild and weird season.

Oscars Experts’ Top 5 underdogs for Best Actor: Ryan Gosling, Willem Dafoe, Stephan James …

Oscars Experts’ Top 5 underdogs for Best Actor: Ryan Gosling, Willem Dafoe, Stephan James …
We’ve polled more than two dozen Expert journalists from top media outlets for their Oscar predictions, and they’re almost unanimous about four nominees for Best Actor: front-runner Christian Bale (“Vice”) and then Bradley Cooper (“A Star is Born”), Rami Malek (“Bohemian Rhapsody”) and Viggo Mortensen (“Green Book”). For the fifth spot, most of them are predicting critics’ darling Ethan Hawke (“First Reformed”).

But you can always count on the Oscars to deliver at least a handful of major surprises across their 24 categories. So which underdogs should we watch out for in this race? Below are the top five contenders on the bubble with at least one Expert predicting them for nominations as of this writing.

Last Sam standing: Elliott will make Best Supporting Actor Oscar lineup over Rockwell, readers believe

Last Sam standing: Elliott will make Best Supporting Actor Oscar lineup over Rockwell, readers believe
Is there enough room for two Sams in the Best Supporting Actor Oscar final five? You don’t think so. Sams Elliott (“A Star Is Born”) and Rockwell (Vice”) have split the televised precursor nominations, and 57 percent of you believe Elliott will edge out Rockwell in the end for a spot.

Earlier in the season, Elliott seemed like a shoo-in for a nomination — which would be his first ever — and possibly even a win for his brief but effective performance as Bradley Cooper‘s brother in “A Star Is Born.” But he’s had an uneven run so far, making Critics’ Choice and the Screen Actors Guild Awards, but getting snubbed by the Golden Globes and BAFTA. However, Elliott has the advantage of being in a top Best Picture contender that has gone 11 for 12 in guild nominations. He also fits the profile of a typical winner in this category: veteran

Shazam, Godzilla 2 and More Are Coming to ScreenX in 2019

Forget about IMAX, Warner Bros. is going all in on ScreenX. For those who aren't familiar, ScreenX is a premium theater format that immerses moviegoers with a massive 270-degree screen that expands the image to the side walls, which makes the viewer feel like they're actually in the movie. This is good news for some of the year's biggest blockbusters, such as Godzilla: King of the Monsters and Shazam, as they're set to be screened across the globe in the up-and-coming format.

Warner Bros. has struck a deal with Cj 4Dplex, the South Korean cinema technology company behind ScreenX, to bring six different movies to the format globally this year. So far, the titles announced include Shazam!, which drops on April 5. The horror movie The Curse of La Llorona, which arrives on April 19.

Mahershala Ali (‘Green Book’) could win a 2nd Oscar faster than any actor in 24 years

Mahershala Ali (‘Green Book’) could win a 2nd Oscar faster than any actor in 24 years
Mahershala Ali is comfortably out front to win the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for “Green Book” after his wins at the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards. But there remains a big unanswered question about this race: will the academy want to reward him again so soon? It has been just two years since he won for “Moonlight.” That’s not unprecedented, of course, but you have to go back decades to find actors who claimed two Oscars so quickly.

No one has won multiple acting Oscars in two years or less in any category since Tom Hanks went back-to-back in the Best Actor race: “Philadelphia” (1993) and “Forrest Gump” (1994) — that’s 24 years ago. You have to go back a lot farther than that to find such a quick repeat specifically in the Best Supporting Actor race. It happened to Jason Robards 41 years ago when he won two in a

Like father, like son, John David Washington could mirror Denzel’s Oscar precursor run

Like father, like son, John David Washington could mirror Denzel’s Oscar precursor run
BlacKkKlansman” star John David Washington is trying to follow in dad Denzel‘s footsteps and make them the second father-son duo to receive acting Oscar nominations after Kirk and Michael Douglas. If the younger Washington does make the Best Actor shortlist, he’ll definitely prove to be his father’s kid, because he’ll have done so with the same major precursor nominations his dad had last year.

John David, who inherited his pops’ voice in addition to his acting skills, earned Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations for his performance as Detective Ron Stallworth, but he was skipped over at Critics’ Choice and BAFTA. Denzel only had Globe and SAG bids under his belt last year en route to an Oscar nomination for “Roman J. Israel, Esq.” That was actually the second time Denzel made the Oscar five with that combo since BAFTA became a precursor 18 years

Oscars: Jack Mathews surveys the Best Picture field

Oscars: Jack Mathews surveys the Best Picture field
A Star is Born” leads the pack in total guild nominations to date by a healthy margin of 11 to the eight for “BlackKlansman” and “Bohemian Rhapsody,” with only the sound editors yet to be heard from. But its own star has been fading with the televised Golden Globe and Critics Choice awards. It won Best Song at both and Lady Gaga tied for Best Actress with Glenn Close (“The Wife”) at the Critics Choice. That’s it.

So, yeah, it’s had a lock on nominations with all of the major guilds, but it no longer feels like the movie to beat for a Best Picture Oscar and its director and co-star Bradley Cooper is a long shot in both categories.

Every movie on the leader board has issues that handicappers can use in making their arguments for and against, but the thing I believe is costing “A Star is Born

Christian Bale knocks Bradley Cooper out of top spot in Best Actor Oscar predictions

Christian Bale knocks Bradley Cooper out of top spot in Best Actor Oscar predictions
No. 2 has become No. 1. Christian Bale, who’s already won a Golden Globe and two Critics’ Choice Awards for his performance as Dick Cheney in “Vice,” is now the Best Actor Oscar frontrunner in our latest predictions.

On the heels of his Best Actor and Best Actor in a Comedy victories at Sunday’s Critics’ Choice Awards, Bale has inched past Bradley Cooper (“A Star Is Born”) with 19/5 odds to 39/10. However, our Experts are split between the two: 11 are backing Bale and 12 have Cooper. Bale has the edge with our Editors (four to one) and our Top 24 Users (10 to seven).

Cooper had been the frontrunner the entire season, but he hasn’t claimed a major prize yet. At the Globes, he lost the drama category to Rami Malek (“Bohemian Rhapsody”) before falling to Bale at Critics’ Choice. “A Star Is Born” has underperformed so far in general, with just twin

2019 Oscars Best Director race: Which DGA Awards nominee is most likely to be snubbed by Academy Awards?

2019 Oscars Best Director race: Which DGA Awards nominee is most likely to be snubbed by Academy Awards?
The DGA Awards nominees for Best Director are: Bradley Cooper (“A Star is Born”), Alfonso Cuaron (“Roma”), Peter Farrelly (“Green Book”), Spike Lee (“BlacKkKlansman”) and Adam McKay (“Vice”). How many of these five will reap Oscar nominations on Jan. 22?

Remember, there are usually one or two differences between the slate selected by the 16,000 plus members of the DGA, which includes helmers of TV fares and commercials, and the choices of the 519 members of the directors branch of the academy. Vote in our poll at the bottom of this post.

In its first 15 years, there were anywhere from four to 18 DGA nominees. From 1963 – 1965, it went with five before going to 10 for the rest of the decade. Beginning in 1970 it enshrined the number of nominees as five. Since then, there have only been five years when it previewed the exact lineup of Oscar contenders; the most recent of these was in 2009 when

How a 'Green Book' TV Show Was "Derailed" by Peter Farrelly's Film

How a 'Green Book' TV Show Was
Long before Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali hit the road to make this awards season's most controversy-prone contender, there was a TV project called Green Book being developed in Hollywood.

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that a producer and filmmaker are readying that series based on the actual Green Book once again and will soon pitch to studios and networks. The untitled project is being developed by a veteran producer — Emmy winner Stan Brooks (HBO’s Broken Trail) — through his Stan & Deliver Films along with filmmaker Chandus Jackson.

The two had been developing a series for several years ...

Is ‘A Star Is Born’ in danger of being the 6th film to go 0-4 at the SAG Awards?

Is ‘A Star Is Born’ in danger of being the 6th film to go 0-4 at the SAG Awards?
A Star Is Born” leads the Screen Actors Guild Awards with four nominations and is one of 18 films to get four bids. But might it walk away empty-handed? If it does, it’d be the sixth movie to go 0-4.

The film is up for ensemble, lead actor for Bradley Cooper, lead actress for Lady Gaga and supporting actor for Sam Elliott, but it’s currently not projected to win any of them in on our combined odds. “A Star Is Born” is in second to “Black Panther” in ensemble, while Christian Bale (“Vice”) and Glenn Close (“The Wife”) have leapfrogged over one-time favorites Cooper and Gaga following their Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice victories. And Elliott is in third place, trailing Richard E. Grant (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”) and Globe and Critics’ Choice champ Mahershala Ali (“Green Book”).

Mahershala Ali Reflects on ‘Moonlight,’ Oscar Win and the First Albums He Ever Bought
Mahershala Ali is one of the biggest stars in Hollywood right now. After struggling in Hollywood for about two decades, the actor won an Oscar in 2017 for Best Supporting Actor for Moonlight, and recently starred in the critical hit Green Book and the new season of True Detective.

He sat down with Rolling Stone for our ‘First Time’ series, opening up about the first albums he bought, the first time he watched Moonlight, winning an Oscar, why he feels like a fraud on his first days on the sets of movies sets.

Final Supporting Actor Predictions

by Nathaniel R

In a year of what appears to be abizarre cakewalk to an immediate second Oscar for leading man Mahershal Ali in Green Book, Best Supporting Actor is likely to be a bit dull this season. Nevertheless predict we must.

It's safe to say given the televised precursor wins and the strength of his film in the Best Picture race that Mahershala Ali is locked up for at least a nomination for his uneven leading performance despite this being a supporting category and despite his film being under constant attack. Adam Driver's film BlacKkKlansman has also been a consistent performer and Richard E Grant in Can You Ever Forgive Me? appears to be the only real threat to Mahershala Ali's Oscar at this point given widespread enthusiasm about his performance (that is If his campaign can pick up any steam in the final stretch)...

Watch out, Bradley Cooper (‘A Star Is Born’): These 4 first-time directors could upset you at DGA Awards

Watch out, Bradley Cooper (‘A Star Is Born’): These 4 first-time directors could upset you at DGA Awards
By all accounts, Bradley Cooper (“A Star Is Born”) should be walking away with the DGA prize for Best First-Time Director. The actor-turned-auteur won rave reviews for helming and starring in this romantic drama about a fading musician (Cooper) and his rising protege (Lady Gaga), scoring nominations both in this category and in Best Director. Yet he’ll have to watch out for four other debut filmmakers at the Directors Guild of America Awards who just might give him a run for his money.

See Bradley Cooper (‘A Star Is Born’) could win Oscars as actor, director and producer, but are we underestimating him as a writer?

According to our racetrack odds, Bo Burnham (“Eighth Grade”) is the likeliest challenger to Cooper’s victory with second place odds of 19/5. Like his rival, Burnham is a performer who stepped behind the camera to create a tender portrait of an awkward pre-teen

2019 Oscars guild awards scorecard: ‘A Star is Born’ now 11 for 12 after missing visual effects nomination, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ moves up to second

2019 Oscars guild awards scorecard: ‘A Star is Born’ now 11 for 12 after missing visual effects nomination, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ moves up to second
We just heard from the Visual Effects Society with their nominees for the best of the year. These wizards of wonder were the 12th of 13 guilds and societies to weigh in with their choices following the actors, art directors, casting directors, cinematographers, costume designers, directors, film editors, makeup artists & hairstylists, producers, sound mixers and writers. (The sound editors don’t chime in till the end of the month.)

The Ves brought an end to the streak for “A Star is Born” that had seen it reap bids from the first 11 precursor prizes to reveal their rosters. Among the other leading Oscar contenders, “Bohemian Rhapsody” reaped a bid for it supporting visual effects and now moves into a tie for second place on the overall list with “BlacKkKlansman” with nominations from eight guilds.

Black Panther,” which was snubbed by the Ves remains one back, having been recognized by seven groups as

Inside an Oscar Season of Anger

  • Variety
The furor that has flared around virtually every major Oscar rival this year has turned the ongoing awards season into a particularly ugly one. As the proceedings continue to devolve into a fit of collective rage aimed at any and all, it’s worth a recap.

Just before the season kicked off at the Venice and Telluride film festivals, the first fracas struck, though it ultimately amounted to little more than a filmmaker beef. On Twitter, outspoken “Sorry to Bother You” director Boots Riley slammed “BlacKkKlansman” for inaccuracies, and accused director Spike Lee of promulgating disingenuous pro-law-enforcement propaganda. A separate Twitter confrontation with screenwriter Charlie Wachtel escalated until the “BlacKkKlansman” scribe deleted his entire Twitter account. The whole spat lasted at least until the Governors Awards in November, where Riley said Lee shouted to him, “I’m Miles Davis, you’re Chet Baker!!!”

The tweet I'm quoting shows as unavailable,
