Awards Radar Community: What Are Your Final Oscar Predictions?

Tomorrow is the big day. Yes, just about 24 hours from now (depending on when you’re reading this), the 94th Academy Awards are being held. So, we’re literally on the doorstep of finding out who and what are about to become Oscar winners. Records will be broken. Tears will be shed. It’s going to be something, that’s for sure. I’ve already said my piece, and will have more to say once the Oscars are over, but today, it’s your turn. For this weekend’s Awards Radar Community Question, we’re asking the obvious: what are your final Oscar predictions? It’s time to lay them on us…

I ran down my final predictions here yesterday. Now, we want to hear from you. In particular, if you have any No Guts, No Glory, picks. That’s where Oscar pools are won and lost. Go big or go home. Of course, we all want to be right, but sometimes, fortune favors the bold!

If you’re backing CODA for Best Picture, tell us why. The same goes for a Belfast surprise, along with The Power of the Dog managing to hold on in the end. Are you going with Jessica Chastain in Best Actress, or did you move to Penelope Cruz at the last moment? Below the line, what do you have happening to Dune? These are just some of the questions we’re curious about, but they’re hardly the only ones.

Let us know where you stand on the eve of the ceremony. No Oscar prediction is wrong (at least yet), and of course, we’re interested in those aforementioned No Guts, No Glory, picks. Hit us with your best Academy Award guesses, ladies and gentlemen…

Hi Joey, so I differ from you in only two categories and the main reason I’m picking Coda for Picture is the state of the world at the moment with the Academy wanting to send a hopeful message. Differing from you is Encanto winning Animated Film because I’m sticking with the stat that when nominated for both Score and Song as well, the film usually goes on to win Animated Film. Secondly I’m going for Dune in Score even though The Power of the Dog therefore only winning one Oscar does look kinda strange but Dune’s music is so integral to the movie’s success that I don’t think it can be denied. However, I am thinking about a last minute NGNG pick of Cruz for Actress because I believe she’s the most natural and least ‘actorly’ of the five nominees which they sometimes plump for in the end.
