Mid October Oscar Predictions

91st Academy Awards: Early As Hell Predictions

Continuing the tradition that I began last year, I’ve put together my first set of predictions for next year’s Oscars, far too early. At this point, we’re able to see what many producers, directors, actors, writers and technicians are working on and what is planned to be released in 2018. If we look to the set of predictions I put out this far ahead of the 90th Academy Awards, Dunkirk, which is currently the front-runner in 6 categories (including Best Picture and Best Director) was already predicted in many categories. Looking back, that is exactly what I was hoping for, that at least one predicted nominee would survive and possibly end up nominated, if not winning. So take a look at what’s I’ve foreseen as nominees, and prepare yourself to see them in theaters in 2018!

It’s now September, and the race is heating up. We are midway though the 3 major Film Festivals, Venice (ending on Saturday), Toronto (beginning on Friday), and Telluride, which has already wrapped up.

Over to the Foreign Language Film submissions, the submissions have started to trickle in, and this time next month, we will know the full list of submissions. Most front runners in the top categories are starting to lose ground (with the only exception being Gary Oldman for Lead Actor), and soon we will know who is going to be a lock for a nomination.
