Reply to this post with your predictions before the awards this Sunday.


If you haven't seen many movies this year, don't worry - feel free to guess. Prizes available for the person with the most accurate predictions! :star:


PS, the plan was to ask one of you guys if you wanted to run this but time totally ran away with us, so I decided to post it for speed given we only have a few days until the awards. :)

All behaviour is a need trying to be met.

    Long:

    Either 1917 or Joker for best picture. Let's just go with Joker.
    Joaquin Phoenix for best actor!
    Joker for best score, Hildur did a great job at putting you in Arthur's world and she did a great job with Chernobyl's score too.
    1917 for best cinematography. It plays like one long take, you're absorbed in every scene.
    Scarlett Johansson for best actress.
    Sam Mendes best director.
    1917 visual effects. Although I'm surprised how realistic the CGI in Endgame was, the entire Cap vs Cap scene was CGI besides the 2 actors and it looks real.
    Anthony Hopkins best supporting. Not seen it but he got an oscar for being in Silence of the lambs with 16 minutes screen time.
    Not particularly sure about supporting actress or animated I'll just guess!
    Toy story 4 best animated.
    Laura Dern best supporting.
    Joker and 1917 are gonna dominate the Oscars.
    Can we talk about how people warned Joker would inspire violence and all its inspired is people dancing down stairs to Gary Glitter? :joy:

    Short:

    1) Joker
    2) Joaquin Pheonix
    3) Scarlett Johansson
    4) Anthony Hopkins
    5) Laura Dern
    6) Toy Story 4
    7) 1917
    8) 1917
    9) Joker
    10) Sam Mendes

    Loving these predictions so far! I'm rooting for a lot of the smaller releases too - Parasite, The Lighthouse, Marriage Story (my favourite movie of last year).

    The Oscars are TOMORROW so get your predictions in!
