BEST PICTURE AND BEST DIRECTOR

For the Best Picture category, eight movies were nominated, with “Nomaland” and “Minari” making the most waves. Indications from other awards shows suggest that “Nomaland” would win, but it is believed the Academy would pull a surprise with “Minari.

The major contenders in the Best Director category include the above-mentioned movies, including “Promising You Woman.” Chloé Zhao of “Nomaland” is in the lead, but Emerald Fennell of “Promising Young Woman” might attract Oscar voters.

BEST ACTOR AND BEST ACTRESS

For the Best Actor, the late Chadwick Boseman of “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” is in the lead with no contention from the other nominees. Boseman has already won a Golden Globe, a SAG, and a Critics Choice for the role.

Boseman’s co-star Viola Davis is in the lead for Best Actress, but she has close competitors in Carey Mulligan of “Promising Young Woman,” Frances McDormand of “Nomaland,” and Andra Day of “The United States vs. Billie Holiday.”

SUPPORTING ACTRESS AND SUPPORTING ACTOR

The clear choice for Supporting Actor is Daniel Kaluuya for his role in “Judas and the Black Messiah.” He has bagged a Golden Globe, a SAG, and a Critics Choice for the role. However, voters might be split between him and Lakeith Stanfield.

Yuh-Jung Youn of “Minari,” Glenn Close of “Hillbilly Elegy, and Olivia Coleman of “The Father” are the major contenders. However, signs are leaning toward Youn who won a SAG. If she bags an Oscar, she will make history as the first Korean actress to do so.

ORIGINAL AND ADAPTED SCREENPLAY

For Best Original Screenplay, the suggestions favor Emerald Fennell of “Promising Young Woman” as the Academy prefers to give votes to a writer-director. Fennell was also nominated for Best Director.

In the Adapted Screenplay category, Kemp Powers of “One Night in Miami” alongside Christopher Hampton and Florian Zeller of “The Father” are in the lead. However, Zhao could pull a surprise win.

BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY AND ANIMATED FILM

“Wolfwalkers” and “Soul” compete for winning Best Animated Film. Oscar voters are believed to favor Pixar animations, but this might be the first time Disney or Pixar become dethroned.

For Best Cinematography, “Nomaland” is again in the run, thanks to Director of Photography Joshua James Richards. However, the filming techniques of “Mank” might make for a surprise win.

For the 92nd Academy Awards, Joaquin Phoenix won the award for Best Actor for “Joker,” while Renée Zellweger took home Best Actress for Judy. Best Picture was won by “Parasite.”
