For me and other non-Sportsball geeks, the Oscars is mints more interesting! Who wears whom? What’s the opening monologue/ count? Will Marvel continue their Visual Effects losing flash? Will ABC ever start the Oscars at 8 PM Eastern Time, and use the full four hours of prime time for the establish, instead of wasting it on the red carpet which should be part of the pre-game broadcast? Will any nerdy/ geeky/ popular cinemas earn? Will Netflix? Amazon? MTV? Barack Obama?
For those who like to construction the Oscars more competitive, there’s always the Oscar office pool. It’s an opportunity for cinephiles to show off their acumen, and maybe win a few bucks. But what if you depleted more occasion at the library than the movie theater last year? How do you pick Best International Picture? Short subject? Make Up and Hairstyling?
Well, I don’t know, exactly.( And if I did, I’d depart professional, stirring bible in Vegas, hanging out poolside at the Beverly Hills Hilton, hosting a YouTube channel .) But thanks to the Internet, we’ve got access to lots of information, and I, professional librarian, will share my mighty Web-Fu to help you!
My first technique: Hollywood Guilds. Almost everyone who works on a Hollywood production belongs to a professional guild. Writers Guild of America. Directors Guild. The American Society of Cinematographers. These are the alphabet soup of symbols that appear after a person’s name in the approvals, or at the bottom of movie ads in December and January.
Almost all have their own honors, all of them before the Oscars. By looking at who prevails the top allotment at these award dinners, one can narrow the possible win. Why does this work? Because the Academy’s members who specialize in that category select the nominees. Why might this not work? Because the entire Academy membership elects on the final ballot.
Actress: Renee Zellwegger, “Judy” Actor: Joaquin Phoenix, “Joker” Ensemble: “Parasite” Actress in a supporting role: Laura Dern, “Marriage Story” Actor in a supporting role: Brad Pitt, “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood” Stunt Ensemble: “Avengers: Endgame”
Ensemble is a good indicator for Best Picture( more on this movie later ).

[ None of the selected short-lived cinemas, including the winner, were nominated for an Academy Award. Klaus might beat Toy Story 4. TS4, however, got a lot of adore from a variety of fraternities, so given that the part Academy membership referendums, I’m going with Pixar .]

Documentary Feature Documentary Short Subject International Feature Film Animated Short Film Live Action Short Film
Let’s begins with the easy one: International Feature Film, formerly Best Foreign Language Film. When a movie is nominated for both Best International Feature Film and Best Picture, it will win Best International Feature Film. Why? I think it’s because Academy voters split their elect between two difficult choices. So I expect Parasite to win BIFF.
This might also factor into Documentary Feature, as Honeyland is also nominated for Best International Feature Film. American Factory gained some notoriety for Barack Obama, whose yield companionship financed the movie.( The heads get the award , not individual producers .) Honeyland got a lot of notice when it was exhausted theatrically (!), and it did earn an gift from the Cinematographer’s guild, as well as a nomination from the Directors guild.
Then there’s Documentary Short subject. Ideally, your regional arthouse cinema will screen them, and you can watch them all and realise your select. It are likely to be sardonic, but often the champion is a reflection of the Zeitgeist. St. Louis Superman seems to be the frontrunner.
The most difficult category to pick is Live Action Short Film. If you can’t watch them in a theater, aggregate analysis from numerous websites. Those beings get paid to watch a great deal of movies and write about them. Or pick for the most ” serious ” cinema, squandering the Zeitgeist as a virtual Ouija board.
Then there’s Animated Short Film … Again, try to watch them…most of them are available on YouTube. Pixar is usually the favorite, but it’s interesting to note that Pixar and Disney don’t screen invigorated suddenlies in front of their enlivened peculiarities anymore. Kitbull is a fine cartoon, but I feel I’ve seen this before. I’m going with Hair Love.
Oh … and there’s Best Picture. The Producer’s Guild adopted 1917. The Screen Actors Guild adopted Parasite. Me … I don’t know. What’s interesting…almost all of these cinemas are popular, or is targeted at a general gathering. The Irishman and Marriage Story, both by Netflix, are the only ” serious” movies now. Maybe that’s the new S.O.P .; screen a serious movie so that it qualifies for gifts consideration, then stream it to subscribers( and perhaps press a few DVDs for libraries, collectors, and the few Netflix readers who still get DVDs in the mail ). 65 of 91 Best Picture winners likewise earned Best Director. So I’m going with 1917.
So, what are the results from all these sororities and techniques? Here’s my Oscar poll 😛 TAGEND
