Kobe is going to be included so I imagine Douglas will be as well.

I might tune in for the last hour as that's when the important categories get announced.

I've seen 5 of the 9 best picture candidates and I'm going with 1917. That was a spectacular film.

I have not seen Irishmen and Marriage Story even though I have access to them on Netflix. I just need to make the time. That's like 5 plus hours of viewing for those two.

JoJo Rabbit I missed in theatres and will wait until it hits Red Box. I don't really have an interest in Little Women. Just not a genre that interests me that much.

Managed to see nearly all the movies except Ford Vs Ferrari and Jo Jo Rabbit. This is the first time in years I've been able to do that, and since I really loved a lot of the movies, I'm looking forward to enjoying seeing them get recognized. I feel like it's still up in the air how Parasite will do, and I'm hoping this will be one of those rare years when the Academy votes different than the DGA.

What I'm rooting for, not what I'm predicting:

Best Picture
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood
This movie became my soundtrack for the year, which was a big year in which I made a lot of changes. I saw it five times during the course of its theatrical run, and I know that in the years to come it will be a movie I return to like a musical album, that will vividly bring back the feelings and memories of this time in my life.

Best Director
Bong Joon Ho

Best Original Screenplay
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

Best Adapted Screenplay
The Irishman

Best Actor
Joaquin Pheonix for Joker. Honestly, I think Leonardo DiCaprio is my favourite performance, but he's already won and I like to see the awards spread around. Had Brad Pitt been nominated here as he should be, I'd root for him over Joaquin.

Best Actress
Cynthia Erivo for Harriet. I really want to see someone win for playing Harriet Tubman, and since the Academy overlooked Jaqueline Fleming in Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, this is a chance to get it right

Best Supporting Actor
Brad Pitt for Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

Best Supporting Actress
N/A didn't see Bombshell, Jo Jo, or Richard Jewell, and didn't feel like Dern or Pugh gave performances worthy of being named one of the year's best.

Best Cinematography
Jarin Blaschke for The Lighthouse. I think it's interesting that in the old days, there were two categories, one for Best Colour Cinematography and one for Best Black and White.

Best Editing
Thelma Schoonmaker for The Irishman. Watched the first half of this for the second time last night, found it a much more enjoyable and engaging then my initial "meh" viewing. The way the editing makes this complicated story brisk and fascinating puts it head and shoulders above the other nominees, which says a lot as all those films owe a lot to their editing as well.

Best Original Score
Joker. I'd love to see such a minimal score win. This is the one movie that afterwards I still had the "music" running in my head.

Best Production Design
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. Close between this and The Irishman, both movies I could enjoy myself turning the sound off and ignoring the story to get lost looking at all the detail in the city streets and the rooms and the homes. I suppose period movies might get an unfair advantage because of that. Obviously movies set modern day require a lot of creative thinking and effort, but it's invisible, you can fool yourself into thinking the house and the ghetto in Parasite are real places that just happened to be there, all the filmmakers did was show up and turn on the lights

I hope there is some way that either The Irishman can pull off Best Picture, or that Knives Out can win for original screenplay. If one of those 2 things happen, we could see the top 8 awards (picture, directing, acting, screenplays) going to 8 different films if the favorites otherwise prevail. Of course 1917 can also win Best Picture and that's that, but these days I almost expect a directing/picture split.

I would love KO to win screenplay as well, but don’t think it will. Think go to Parasite which I’m ok with too, but Johnson was just so inventive in that script. The dialogue, the story, were mesmerizing...

Brad is right, there should be an Oscar for Stunt Coordinator.

Hopefully this is the only win for Once Upon a Time tonight. Nothing against Brad.

Pitt gave a pretty damn good speech for a guy that frequently comes across as an idiot.

The Shorts shouldn’t be part of the televised awards. They are different than feature films and the audience hasn’t even had a chance to watch them.

That Frozen 2 song was certainly stirring with all the singers, but especially Mendel. First time I heard it. Certainly not catchy or memorably. All I remember is “Into the Unknown”. But couldn’t quote you a lyric.
