Super-way-too-early 2019 Oscar season predictions




Since of course three days after this year's Oscars is hardly too early, and everyone was disappointed as fuck at this year's winners, let's just look ahead. Decider's got a really long thing over why certain movies/actors might be front-runners (I loved Black Panther, but it's gonna get the same going-nowhere hype that Wonder Woman did last year). I'll just break it down:

Best Picture/Acting/Directing possibilities:

-- A Star Is Born (the Bradley Cooper & Gaga remake)
-- First Man (Ryan Gosling & Damien Chazelle teaming up for the Neil Armstrong biopic)
-- Untitled Dick Cheney Film (starring Academy faves Christian Bale, Amy Adams & Sam Rockwell)
-- If Beale Street Could Talk (Barry Jenkins' follow-up to Moonlight)
-- Boy Erased (starring Aussie Oscar winners Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman, and Lucas Hedges in the titular role)
-- On the Basis of Sex (the RBG biopic starring Felicity Jones, Armie Hammer and Justin Theroux)
-- Widows (Steve McQueen's follow-up to 12 Years a Slave, with one hell of a fucking amazing cast: Viola Davis, Elizabeth Debicki, Michelle Rodriguez, Tony-winner Cynthia Erivo, Colin Farrell, Liam Neeson, Daniel Kaluuya, Andre Holland, Robert Duvall, Carrie Coon, and Jackie Weaver).
-- Roma (Alfonso Cuaron's follow-up to Gravity)
-- The Best of Enemies (Taraji P. Henson starring as a civil rights activist going against Sam Rockwell... playing yet another racist piece of shit, though this time for the KKK!).
-- Gloria (A Fantastic Woman's Oscar-winning director's Sebastian Lelio’s upcoming movie starring Julianne Moore)
-- Mary, Queen of Scots (who doesn't love a British monarchy period piece, and this one starring two of this year's best actress nominees Margot Robbie & Saoirse Ronan)
-- The Wife (huge buzz for Glenn Close already - is it about time she's finally winning?)
-- Beautiful Boy (drug-addiction hella melodrama starring Steve Carell & Timothée Chalamet)

Bookmarking this shit because I bet this will be at least 20% on the mark.
