There are 3 comments on The Oscars: Who Will Win. Who Should Win. Who Got Robbed

  1. This Oscar season has the most essentially guaranteed locks of any season in recent memory, which makes some of these comments pretty bizarre. It seems like the interviewer is the most knowledgeable.

    All four acting categories are very locked down. Anything other than Phoenix, Zellweger, Pitt, and Dern would be incredibly shocking, so much so that many people are calling this a dull season.

    Sam Mendes is the huge favorite for Best Director after winning basically every main precursor. Pretty odd that he wasn’t mentioned in the Best Director category.

    Best Picture is generally considered a race between 1917 and Parasite, with 1917 being the favorite, because Parasite would need to make history by being the first international feature to win Best Picture.
