OSCAR PREDICTIONS!

It’s that time of year again! OSCAR TIME! It’s also that time of year that we bring you our Oscar Predictions. What we think will win and what we think should win. Here goes…

BEST PICTURE
Black Panther
BlacKkKlansman
Bohemian Rhapsody
The Favourite
Green Book
Roma
A Star Is Born
Vice

WHAT WILL WIN
BRENT – ROMA / BLACK PANTHER / GREEN BOOK – “This is the first time in years that there’s really been such an open race. I think Roma has this unfortunately… it would not be my pick. However, I think that Black Panther could snatch this from it and shock everyone. It has a real shot of winning, so I would not be surprised. If anything beats Roma it would be the biggest movie of the year. And then there is Green Book, I would love for it to win and I think it has a slight shot, but with all the controversy I think it may lose out. Plus then I’d have to listen to all the haters bitch about how it’s another Crash winning.”
BYRON – ROMA – “I really did love this movie, and the struggle it presents. I will not be upset if this wins, I love Alfonso Cuaron, but it is weird when a filmmaker wins Best Picture for a product that isn’t their best, which in my view is Children of Men. However, the man deserves a lot of credit, he is a filmmaker that I am always excited to see what is next from.”

WHAT SHOULD WIN
BRENT – GREEN BOOK – “This is the perfect crowd pleasing Oscar winning movie that everyone loves to shit on. The movie has been flagged with so much controversy, but I enjoyed it so sue me.”
BYRON – GREEN BOOK – “This film was funny, touching, and powerful all mixed into one. However, is it a best picture of the year, it’s hard to tell, but I think out of the ones nominated, this film has my vote. I’m still upset “A Quiet Place” wasn’t nominated.”

BEST DIRECTOR
Spike Lee – BlacKkKlansman
Pawel Pawlikowski – Cold War
Yorgos Lanthimos – The Favourite
Alfonso Cuarón – Roma
Adam McKay – Vice

WHO WILL WIN
BRENT – Alfonso Cuarón – ROMA – “He flat out deserves it. Also this category is missing Bradley Cooper, what the hell!”
BYRON – Alfonso Cuarón – ROMA – “The whole time watching this movie I couldn’t stop thinking, “How the hell did he make all of this happen?” The film is epic in many ways and to think he was also Cinematographer, just give this man the award.”

WHO SHOULD WIN
BRENT – Alfonso Cuarón – ROMA
BYRON – Alfonso Cuarón – ROMA

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 WILL WIN
BRENT – Rami Malek -BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY – “This is the only award this movie deserves to win.”
BYRON –Rami Malek -BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY – “Yes, he embodied Freddie Mercury. Yes, the Live Aid performance was spot on. I still didn’t love the film, but he did kill it, so let’s just give it to him.”

WHO SHOULD WIN
BRENT – Rami Malek – BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY
BYRON – Rami Malek -BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY / Christian Bale – VICE – “Rami deserves it, but I really liked Chistian Bale’s performance in Vice. I thought there were a lot of amazing levels that he gave to this role. Honestly though, this can go to any of the 5 nominees and I’d be happy.”

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 WILL WIN
BRENT – Glenn Close – THE WIFE – “Sorry Gaga fans this is Glenn Close’s Oscar to lose.”
BYRON – Glenn Close – THE WIFE – “This is a weird “it’s their time” moment, but at the same time, it came when she absolutely kills the performance.”

WHO SHOULD WIN
BRENT – Glenn Close – THE WIFE  – She’s been nominated 7 times over and amazing career. Yes that’s not the reason to give someone an award, but she is incredible in The Wife and hands down deserves her moment.”
BYRON – Glenn Close – THE WIFE

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
Mahershala Ali – Green Book
Adam Driver – BlacKkKlansman

BYRON – Rachel Weisz – THE FAVOURITE – “She knocked this role out of the park. The only thing that could hold her back is splitting votes with Emma Stone”

WHO SHOULD WIN
BRENT – Rachel Weisz – THE FAVOURITE – “This is a tough category for me as I haven’t see Regina King’s performance yet or Amy Adams. As of right now though I though Rachel was brilliant in The Favourite.”

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs
BlacKkKlansman
Can You Ever Forgive Me?

WHO WILL WIN
BRENT – BLACKkKLANSMAN “This is another tough category to figure out. I think BlacKkKlansman has the lead on this one, but Can You Ever Forgive Me just won the WGA award so it’s coming up strong behind it.”
BYRON – BLACKkKLANSMAN “Spike Lee for the win! But watch out for Oscar darlings, the Coen Brothers. They love winning awards they don’t deserve – I’m still mad from the No Country for Old Men win over There Will Be Blood.”

WHO SHOULD WIN
BRENT – BLACKkKLANSMAN – “There weren’t any standouts in this category for me. I’d be happy with a win from BlacKkKlansman or Can You Ever Forgive Me?”

BRENT – THE FAVOURITE – “I think this is where they are going to reward The Favourite.”

WHO SHOULD WIN
BRENT – GREEN BOOK / THE FAVOURITE “I would be happy with either winning this.”

BYRON – SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE –“WOOHOO!!!! Marvel for the win!!! But let’s take a minute here. Every film in this category is amazing. When Isle of Dogs came out, I thought, this is the winner. Then Incredibles 2 came out, and I thought, damn, looks like this is the winner. But then I saw Spiderman, and I thought, this is one of the best FILMS of the year. This should be in the Best Picture category. It is fun, the animation is amazing, story is killer.

BYRON – COLD WAR“I loved this film. The struggle was real, the performances were out of this world, and I was completely entranced by the world created. But how does a film win best picture and not win Best Foreign Film, so this is a weird spot to be in.”
