Oscar Predictions 2018: Who Will Win This Year?

The 2018 Oscar nominations were just announced, and we are definitely surprised at who was nominated, who was snubbed (uh, where the heck was Wonder Woman?) and the A-List celebs who are now pitted against one another to take home the coveted statue. It was a quite a year for feature films, but there can only be one winner.

In a perfect world, everyone would be awarded for their outstanding work, but there can only be one. Here are our picks on who will take home the Gold Man this year.

Timothée Chalamet, Call Me By Your Name
Daniel Day-Lewis, Phantom Thread
Daniel Kaluuya, Get Out
Gary Oldman, Darkest Hour
Denzel Washington, Roman J. Israel, Esq. 

Oldman’s performance as Winston Churchill is pretty much a no-brainer. Oldman’s portrayal as the historical figure was beyond convincing, and you can tell he really dug deep to give his best adaptation of the character.

Best Actress in a Leading Role

While Sally Hawkins and Margot Robbie’s performances were outstanding, McDormand’s lead role and previous wins for her role(she just took home a SAG award) make her a shoe-in to us.

Frances McDormand, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Margot Robbie, I, Tonya
Sally Hawkins, The Shape of Water
Saoirse Ronan, Lady Bird
Meryl Streep, The Post

Best Actor in a Supporting Role

Another long overdue and underrated actor, we think Rockwell’s performance in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri will finally earn him the gold. Playing a brutal racist cop, Rockwell’s performance seems like the clear pick to us.

Willem Dafoe, The Florida Project
Woody Harrelson, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Richard Jenkins, The Shape of Water
Christopher Plummer, All the Money in the World
Sam Rockwell, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Best Actress in a Supporting Role

We think Allison Janney’s disturbingly convincing portrayal as the abusive mom to fallen figure skater Tonya Harding in the autobiographical drama I, Tonya will earn Janney the award.

Laurie Metcalf, Lady Bird
Allison Janney, I, Tonya
Lesley Manville, Phantom Thread
Mary J. Blige, Mudbound
Octavia Spencer, The Shape of Water

Best Picture

Call Me By Your Name
Darkest Hour
Get Out
Lady Bird
Phantom Thread
The Post
The Shape of Water
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

You don’t get 13 nominations for one film without it being worthy. In any case, we think The Shape of Water will take home the award for Best Picture with Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri being the closest competitor for the top honor.
