Academy Awards 2020: Predictions

This year the leading winner of Oscars will be ‘1917’ and ‘Parasite’ will become the first Korean film to win an Oscar. Here are my predictions for the winners of 2020.

Best Motion Picture of the Year

Who Will Win: ‘1917’

Who Should Win: Parasite. ‘Parasite’ is a better movie than ‘1917’

Honourable Mention: ‘The Irishman’

Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role

Who Will Win: Joaquin Phoenix for ‘Joker’. Who else?

Who Should Win: Joaquin Phoenix

Honourable Mention: Adam Driver in ‘Marriage Story’

Best Achievement in Directing

Who Will Win: Sam Mendes for ‘1917’

Who Should Win: Bong Joon Ho for ‘Parasite’. I won’t put my money on this but I won’t be surprised if Bong Joon Ho nicks it.

Honourable Mention: Todd Philips for ‘Joker’

Best Original Screenplay

Who Will Win: ‘Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood’

Who Should Win: ‘Little Women’

Honourable Mention: ‘The Irishman’

Best Achievement in Cinematography

Who Will Win: Roger Deakins for ‘1917’. More than anything, ‘1917’ was about cinematography.
