Our 2019 Oscar Nominations Predictions: And The Nominees Are…

oscar2019

It’s award season again and all of Hollywood elite is on the edge of their seats in anticipation for the 2019 Oscar nominees. From actors who transformed themselves for biopics to crime fighters to magical nannies who fly over houses.  This year’s nominees may be eerily similar to this year’s Golden Globe nods, but we can never pass up an opportunity to give our take on who we’d like to see nab a trophy.  

In the ‘Best Motion Picture’ category we foresee at least eight films being nominated this year.   Our picks include: “Black Panther,” “Crazy Rich Asians,” “Green Book,” “BlacKkKlansman,” Bohemian Rhapsody,” “If Beale Street Could Talk,” “Vice,” and “A Star Is Born.” Our money is on the critically acclaimed “If Beale Street Could Talk,” which has received rave reviews and support from theater goers and critics. 

This year’s “Best Actor in a Motion Picture” category will likely feature a mix of actors who took on real-life portrayals and actors who poured their heart into innovative roles.  Our picks are: Bradley Cooper (“A Star Is Born”), Rami Malek (“Bohemian Rhapsody”), Christian Bale (“Vice”), Viggo Mortensen (“Green Book”), and John C. Reilly (“Stan & Ollie”).  The Academy could put a twist on things and nominate Robert Redford for his outstanding role in “The Old Man & the Gun,” but our guess is that they’ll nominate John C. Reilly for his uncanny portrayal of Oliver Hardy in “Stan & Ollie” instead. 

This year’s “Best Actress in a Motion Picture” category will be a nail-biter.  Glenn Close (“The Wife”) and Lady Gaga (“A Star Is Born”) have both been receiving praise and awards for their respective roles.  The duo even tied for the “Best Actress” trophy at the Critics’ Choice Awards, so it would come as no surprise if the Academy opted to give the statue to both ladies – an occurrence that hasn’t happened since both Katharine Hepburn and Barbra Streisand took home the trophy 50 years ago. Rounding out the rest of our picks for this category include Nicole Kidman (“Destroyer”), Emily Blunt (“Mary Poppins Returns”), and Rosamund Pike (“A Private War”). 

For the “Best Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture” category there’s no need to list all of our choices, as there is only one woman who we have our money on; it’s none other than Regina King for her phenomenal performance in  “If Beale Street Could Talk.”  King has been a standout actress from the first time she appeared on the screen in the hit 1980s series, “227.” She emerges herself into every role she takes on and she did the same here. 

The Best Actor in a Supporting Role” category will have some familiar winners this year.  Mahershala Ali who won for “Best Actor” in 2016 for “Moonlight” is a big contender for his work in the movie “Green Book.”  He already won the Golden Globe Award for “Best Supporting Actor” for the film, so he seems to be the likely winner here.  Another familiar face we know we’ll see on the roster this year is Sam Rockwell. The actor won this award in 2018 for the film,  “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” Rockwell’s performance in “Vice” has created a lot of buzz this season, but sadly we don’t see a repeat win here. Some other notable favorites of ours for this category include Timothee Chalamet (“Beautiful Boy”), Adam Driver (“BlacKkKlansman”) and Richard E. Grant (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”). 

For “Best Animated Film,” the Academy will give nods to “The Incredibles 2,” “Small Foot,” “The Grinch,” “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” and “Hotel Transylvania.”  We are fully backing a win for “The Incredibles 2” in this category!

We are also giving honorable mention to the song “Shallow” from the movie “A Star is Born.”  There is no doubt that the track will take home “Song of the Year.” Both Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper were a match made in heaven to collaborate on singing the song. 

With the Oscars not having a host this year, viewers can look forward to seeing some of their favs that took home awards at the Golden Globes,  do the exact same thing here. Repetition can be annoying in everyday life, but when you’re an actor, it’s a great thing.

Don’t forget to see who takes home a coveted statue, when the 2019 Oscars airs on Sunday, February 24 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.

Add to FacebookAdd to DiggAdd to Del.icio.usAdd to StumbleuponAdd to RedditAdd to BlinklistAdd to TwitterAdd to TechnoratiAdd to Yahoo BuzzAdd to Newsvine

Actor Ben Affleck has been laying low for quite some time now. However, his upcoming movie “The Town” seems to be just what the actor needed to get back into the swing of things.  The movie hits theaters on September 17.

Synopsis via Rope  Of Silicion:

Doug MacRay (Ben Affleck) is an unrepentant criminal, the de facto leader of a group of ruthless bank robbers who pride themselves in stealing what they want and getting out clean. With no real attachments, Doug never has to fear losing anyone close to him. But that all changed on the gang’s latest job, when they briefly took a hostage–bank manager, Claire Keesey (Rebecca Hall). Though they let her go unharmed, Claire is nervously aware that the robbers know her name… and where she lives. But she lets her guard down when she meets an unassuming and rather charming man named Doug….not realizing that he is the same man who only days earlier had terrorized her. The instant attraction between them gradually turns into a passionate romance that threatens to take them both down a dangerous, and potentially deadly, path.

Affleck directed and co-wrote the screenplay for “The Town” Rebecca Hall, Jon Hamm, Jeremy Renner, Blake Lively, and Chris Cooper are the main co-stars of the film.
