The Oscar Narrative: Final Nomination Predictions - Cinematography, Costume Design, Film Editing and Production Design

Best Cinematography
Roger Deakins "Blade Runner 2049"
Bruno Delbonnel "Darkest Hour"
Hoyte Van Hoytema "Dunkirk"
Rachel Morrison "Mudbound"
Dan Laustsen "The Shape of Water"

Other Contenders - Ben Davis "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri", Sayombhu Mukdeeprom "Call Me By Your Name", Janusz Kaminski "The Post", Masanobu Takayanagi "Hostiles"

Commentary - So I am sticking with the five ASC nominees this year, but, I could easily see Three Billboards taking the last slot like it did at BAFTA. The nominee that would be replaced would be Rachel Morrison, but I think Mudbound is more well-liked here stateside, and the fact that this is the year of the woman might be weighing heavily on voters' minds. The other four, Delbonnel, Deakins, Hoytema, and Laustsen should be pretty safe. I also think that Mukdeeprom and Kaminski should be discounted for excellent work.

Best Costume Design
Beauty and the Beast
Murder on the Orient Express
The Greatest Showman
Phantom Thread
The Shape of Water

Other Contenders - Darkest Hour, I Tonya, Lady Bird, Victoria and Abdul, The Post, Dunkirk, Wonder Woman, Wonderstruck, Blade Runner 2049, Thor: Ragnarok, Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Commentary - I try to remember with this category that more is better, which is why Darkest Hour made its way out. It is basically just guys in suits. Same with The Post and Dunkirk. Phantom Thread is about fashion, Beauty and the Beast, The Greatest Showman, and Murder on the Orient Express all have flashy period costumes. Finally, The Shape of Water will probably ride its technical categories wave. But I could easily see it missing out for something like Victoria and Abdul.

Best Film Editing
Baby Driver
Dunkirk
I, Tonya
The Shape of Water
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Other Contenders -  Blade Runner 2049, Get Out, The Post, Lady Bird, Molly's Game, Mudbound, The Florida Project, Call Me By Your Name, Wonder Woman, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Darkest Hour

Commentary - Dunkirk is in, so is The Shape of Water. Three Billboards also feels safe Beyond that, I am completely confused. Blade Runner and Star Wars seem like easy picks, and Get Out and Lady Bird need this badly to beat Three Billboards in Best Picture. Beyond that I don't know. I am going with Baby Driver, who has the Eddie and BAFTA, and I, Tonya, which really relies on its editing. But that leaves out the four mentioned before, The Post and Molly's Game, which feels wrong. This is one I will be looking for on nomination day, because I think it will tell us a lot about the overall state of the race. 

Best Production Design
Beauty and the Beast
Blade Runner 2049
Darkest Hour
The Post
The Shape of Water

Other Contenders - Dunkirk, Murder on the Orient Express, Phantom Thread, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, The Greatest Showman, Victoria and Abdul, Wonderstruck

Commentary - Beauty and the Beast, Darkest Hour, and The Shape of Water feel like locks. I also think Blade Runner 2049 is pretty safe as the Academy has embraced the mixture of production design with visual effects. The last slot is causing issues. Murder on the Orient Express, The Greatest Showman, Victoria and Abdul, and Phantom Thread feel like easy picks, Dunkirk has a lot, but could miss because so much of it is filmed outside. Finally, Star Wars, which has never managed a nomination here in all of its films, should be in consideration for this, and its ADG nomination doesn't hurt. Instead, I am going with two-time Oscar winner Rick Carter and The Post. He got in for War Horse and won for Lincoln, so he seems to be a favorite of this branch. Also Spielberg period pieces tend to make the cut.

The Oscar Narrative: Final Nomination Predictions - Best Original Score and Best Original Song

Best Original Score
Dario Marianelli "Darkest Hour"
Hans Zimmer "Dunkirk"
Jonny Greenwood "Phantom Thread"
John Williams "The Post"
Alexandre Desplat "The Shape of Water"

Other Contenders - Thomas Newman "Victoria and Abdul", Benjamin Wallfisch and Hans Zimmer "Blade Runner 2049", John Williams "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", Michael Giacchino "Coco", Carter Burwell "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri"

Commentary - There really are ten possibilities for five slots. Zimmer and Desplat are definitely in, and are probably the top two for the prize, with Desplat out in front after the Globes and Critics Choice. I also think that Williams is going to earn another slot, and be careful, he could grab two slots, he has done it before. Of the two, I think The Post is stronger across the board, but the last Star Wars film got in here, so this could be flipped. Darkest Hour may have slipped on a lot of folks lists, including mine, but its BAFTA showing and some tech guild love show a film that is probably stronger than any of us even realize, particularly in the craft categories. I think it gets in. The last slot is the one I will probably end up changing. Jonny Greenwood has never managed an Oscar nod, and this is a club that likes its favorites. I feel like his work in Phantom Thread is one of those that critics love, but might be ignored by the music branch. I have him in because he has probably won the most of the critics awards so far, but there are five other scores that could easily eclipse him. There is Star Wars, of course, but the one I am most intrigued by is Thomas Newman. He has 14 nominations, often for films that otherwise are not big Oscar hits, and is clearly beloved by his peers. Hans Zimmer, like Williams, could get two nominations, if Blade Runner gets in, Michael Giacchino is a previous winner, and if Burwell makes the cut, it would show tremendous strength for Three Billboards across the categories, bolstering its Best Picture chances.

Bets Original Song
Beauty and the Beast - Evermore
Coco - Remember Me
The Greatest Showman - This is Me
Marshall - Stand Up for Something
Mudbound - Mighty River

Other Contenders - Call Me By Your Name - The Mystery of Love, Detroit - It Ain't Fair, Fifty Shades Darker - I Don't Wanna Live Forever, Cries From Syria - Prayers for This World

Commentary - So here we go again with Best Original Song, the category that never seems to go as planned. I think that Remember Me is a lock, and will beat the Globe winner This is Me at the finish line. Mary J. Blige is popular this year, and I think that she will be a double nominee. Diane Warren is a legend here, so expect her Marshall song to make the cut. Finally, Disney is a force in this category, especially Alan Menken, and I think Evermore will earn a Disney version of Beauty and the Beast another Original Song nomination. A lot of folks are talking about Sufjan Stevens' song in Call Me By Your Name. Like Greenwood in Score, this could happen, but I think it is more the eccentric critical favorite, and will be drowned out by the bigger songs and songwriters in the bunch. Cher is a possibility for Prayers for This World, It Ain't Fair could rally behind its politics, and yes, do not discount Taylor Swift and the Fifty Shades trilogy. It was this category that made Fifty Shades of Grey an Oscar-nominated film.

The Oscar Narrative: Final Nomination Predictions - Makeup and Hairstyling, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, and Visual Effects

Best Makeup and Hairstyling
Darkest Hour
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
Wonder

Other Contenders - I, Tonya, Ghost in the Shell, Bright

Commentary - This is a category that is almost always a crap shoot. I think that Darkest Hour, with the heavy Churchill makeup, and period hairstyling, will be the front runner here. But, in my mind, there are three other films for two slots. Wonder has the transformation of Jacob Tremblay, and Guardians of the Galaxy has extensive makeup work that earned Vol. 1 an Oscar nomination. But watch out for I, Tonya. It has great period work, and has been a dark horse contender all year across the board.

Best Sound Mixing
Baby Driver
Blade Runner 2049
Dunkirk
The Shape of Water
Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Other Contenders - Wonder Woman, War for the Planet of the Apes, Beauty and the Beast, The Greatest Showman, Coco, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Get Out, The Post

Commentary - Four of the contenders hit both the BAFTA sound category (a mixed category) and the CAS Nominations: Dunkirk, Shape of Water, Baby Driver, and Star Wars. I think all of these will make the Oscar cut. But CAS has not matched 5/5 since 2003, and in recent years, even sometimes two of the nominees don't cross over. So I don't think they will match 5/5, although a fifth slot for Wonder Woman at the CAS is not a bad pick, neither is the BAFTA fifth slot of Blade Runner 2049. I think that Blade Runner will over-perform at the Oscars the way it did at BAFTA, and yes that means that Denis Villeneuve could also pop up in director. I think that the folks in the craft categories will love this film, even if audiences did not, and will get a bunch of below the line nods, including this one. Beyond those six, blockbusters like War for the Planet of the Apes, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Coco are potent threats, as are the two musicals, Beauty and the Beast and The Greatest Showman. Sound mixing and musicals have always equaled Oscar gold.

Best Sound Editing
Baby Driver
Blade Runner 2049
Dunkirk
The Shape of Water
Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Other Contenders - Wonder Woman, War for the Planet of the Apes, Beauty and the Beast, The Greatest Showman, Coco, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Get Out, The Post

Commentary - With no musical front runner, and no guild yet to help us guide the way (MPSE Nods come out day before Oscar nods, so the final list may get switched around a bit depending on those results), I am sticking with the same five. Usually, these two categories are pretty close, and this year, the five films really do excel in both categories.

Best Visual Effects
Blade Runner 2049
Dunkirk
The Shape of Water
Star Wars: The Last Jedi
War for the Planet of the Apes

Other Contenders - Okja, Alien: Covenant, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Kong: Skull Island

Commentary - This category always drives me crazy, because it is unpredictable. Like I will not be surprised if Okja or Valerian make the cut here, even though they are not big Oscar films. But I am sticking with the five best films of the bake-off, that also happen to have excellent special effects. But watch out, my guess is one of these misses out.
