FBC Oscar Coverage, Part IV: The VERY unsurprising nominations

FBC Oscar Coverage, Part IV: The VERY unsurprising nominations

This year was the most accurate I’ve ever been at predicting the Oscar nominees. It’s also been the year where I have seen the least amount of the nominated films.

So, y’know… that’s hurtful.

In all seriousness, what my 41-for-48 predictions show is that this was the year when there weren’t going to be a lot of surprises on whom would be in the running for one of the golden statuettes. While there still were a few surprises (I’m shuffling through the internet to find out what the hell Another Round, nominated for Best Director, was about) and a lot of history made, this was a year where a lot of things fell into place the way most film nerds felt they would.

Is that a bad thing? 

Honestly… not really.

Let’s take a look at some of the nominees and try and sort through what happened this morning.

FBC Oscar Coverage, Part III: Predicting The Nominees

FBC Oscar Coverage, Part III: Predicting The Nominees

Look, I’m gonna be the first to come out and say that I am terrible at picking Oscar winners. Most years, I’m lucky if I can clear 50%. Nominees, on the other hand… for some strange reason, that’s where I come to play. I can usually knock out 75-80 percent. I’m kind of a big deal.

FBC Oscar Coverage Part IX: Predicting The Winners, Part V

FBC Oscar Coverage Part IX: Predicting The Winners, Part V

Welcome back to my ever-extensive Oscar coverage. In the days leading up to the Oscars, I’ll be predicting every award, but focusing in-depth on what I call the “Big 8”. In my first two installments, I predicting the winners of the screenplay categories, the supporting actor categories, the lead acting categories. and all of the other categories. Also, if you want to hear the Fancy Boy Film Society’s top ten films of 2019, you can check it out on the Fancy Boys Club podcast.

Well, we’ve done it. We’ve finally gotten to the two big awards: Best Director and Best Picture. I’ve stared at this list and tried to put myself in the mind of a member of the Academy. And while these two categories are the ones I’m the least sure of, I’m ready to lock it in.

Let’s finish up these predictions.

FBC Oscar Coverage Part VIII: Predicting The Winners, Part IV

FBC Oscar Coverage Part VIII: Predicting The Winners, Part IV

Welcome back to my ever-extensive Oscar coverage. In the days leading up to the Oscars, I’ll be predicting every award, but focusing in-depth on what I call the “Big 8”. In my first two installments, I predicting the winners of the screenplay categories, the supporting actor categories, and the lead acting categories. Also, if you want to hear the Fancy Boy Film Society’s top ten films of 2019, you can check it out on the Fancy Boys Club podcast.

We will not be covering Best Picture and Best Director today, mostly because I am stalling for time because I have no idea what I’m going to predict. So, now that my shame is out there and we can all deal with that as a team, I need a plan because I’m already two paragraphs in. So, in the meantime, let’s cover EVERY OTHER CATEGORY in the Oscars. As a note, I’m usually terrible at these, so it’s probably best to only kind of listen to me. Let’s get into it.

FBC Oscar Coverage, Part VII: Predicting The Winners, Part III

FBC Oscar Coverage, Part VII: Predicting The Winners, Part III

Welcome back to my ever-extensive Oscar coverage. In the days leading up to the Oscars, I’ll be predicting every award, but focusing in-depth on what I call the “Big 8”. In my first two installments, I predicting the winners of the screenplay categories and the supporting actor categories. Also, if you want to hear the Fancy Boy Film Society’s top ten films of 2019, you can check it out on the Fancy Boys Club podcast.

I feel like the acting categories are slam dunks this year. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t snubs to discuss. Also, I’m crazy terrible at predicting winners, so it’s quite possible that this is going to be a horrible quagmire.

That being said, let’s get to some leading predictions!
