  1. I think Ethan Hawke is going to get snubbed and John David Washington will get a nomination. I'd rather see Hawke in there than Malek, but for some reason they're assuring that BR happens. I also think Timothee Chalamet is a lock for supporting with Beautiful Boy.

    But who knows. This season is weird.

    1. You might be right about Hawke, but I think he'll get a BAFTA nomination instead of Washington. Still, it could go either way at the Oscars. Chalamet strikes me as this year's Daniel Bruhl, unless he turns out to be this year's Robert Duvall (for The Judge). Like you said, this season is weird.

  2. Good predictions! Would be nice for Ethan Hawke to finally win though I guess a long shot, as it's a subdued performance.

    Do you think Roma will be in both Best Picture and foreign film category?

    1. Thanks! Hawke might miss a nomination, so I'm just hoping he makes the final five.

      I think Roma gets nominated for both and maybe wins both.

  3. When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added"
    checkbox and now each time a comment is added
    I get several e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from
    that service? Bless you!
