2020 Oscar Predictions

Updated September 9th, 2020


1. “RuPaul’s Drag Race” (VH1)

The title of America's Next Drag Superstar is on the line for a new group of 13 glamour queens on the fourth season of "RuPaul's Drag Race." The contestants compete in a series of elimination challenges that culminate with one player winning $100,000, a lifetime supply of cosmetics, a headline spot on Logo's "Drag Race" tour, and a one-of-a-kind trip. TV personality Michelle Visage, fashion designer Santino Rice, and makeup artist Billy B join RuPaul on the judges' panel. A roster of guest judges includes actress Elvira, singer Wynonna Judd, actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson, author Dan Savage, and actress Regina King.

2. “Nailed It!” (Netflix)

Home bakers who have a poor track record in the kitchen seek redemption -- and cash -- on this series. In each episode, three contestants try their hand at re-creating edible masterpieces. The projects don't always turn out great, but whichever amateur baker comes closest to a successful dessert by the end of the episode takes home the $10,000 prize, which they might want to use on baking lessons. Comic Nicole Byer and renowned pastry chef Jacques Torres host the culinary competition that features such challenges as painting self-portraits on cookies.

3. “Top Chef” (Bravo)

A Big Apple is on the menu as the hit cooking competition series serves up its fifth course in New York, with food critic and author Toby Young joining Tom Colicchio, Padma Lakshmi and Gail Simmons at the judges' table. Other food and entertainment figures taking part include Martha Stewart, Eric Ripert, Rocco DiSpirito, Wylie Dufresne, Natasha Richardson and the Foo Fighters. At stake for the 17 new "cheftestants": $100,000 to help open a restaurant, a feature in Food & Wine magazine and a showcase at the Annual Food & Wine Classic in Aspen, Colo., along with the title of `Top Chef'.

4. “The Voice” (NBC)

Pop sensation Nick Jonas makes his debut in the iconic red chair as he joins multi-talented global superstar Kelly Clarkson, EGOT-winning entertainer John Legend and country music icon Blake Shelton to coach undiscovered hopefuls in the four-time Emmy Award-winning singing competition. The talent and competition are fierce as the game-changing coach lineup goes head-to-head to passionately mentor, inspire and nurture a fresh group of vocal artists from all over the country -- all of whom come with the dream of being crowned The Voice. Some of the industry's biggest names serve as advisers, offering their professional creative insights and adding to the fun.

5. “The Masked Singer” (Fox)

Astronaut, Night Angel, T-Rex, Swan and Rhino perform for guest judge Joel McHale and the rest of the panel in the Group C playoffs, as one of the singers is unmasked and sent home.
