Greetings, fine readers of Awards Daily. The Oscar Squad has put together our tentative predictions, though this might be the first year in a while where the race at this stage is unpredictable due to several forces working themselves through the year’s selections.
The Academy finds itself at a crossroads – having to probably choose their own future. Is their future to be to relax the modes of production that make their way to the Best Picture race – Netflix and Roma. Is their future to at last embrace the superhero franchise and name Black Panther as the film of the year and choose to embrace that future? Or is it the remake of A Star is Born? These three choices present a unique set of problems for these voters. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out.
