I really think it has to be Amy's year. She has mega amazing chemistry with Christian and ende dup being nominated for the two films she has done with them.

Would love for Renee to win, she's overdue one (I don't think she has one does she?) and has never given a bad performance. Plus there will be loads of buzz for this,
especially with the recent news of Lorna Luft.

Yeah surely it's her year! I can see Amy winning either of the actress categories (idk if she's going lead or supporting yet) so hopefully this is finally her year 😍

Renee won for cold mountain about 15 years ago though she hasn't been nominated since then! So agree with you and I'm really hyped for her performance in Judy *.*

This season is already rly fascinating *.*

BlackKKKlansman is coming out in August so it'll be interesting to see how that goes as the August Oscar contenders either break out big time (e.g. The Help) or disappear (e.g. Detroit)
The Favourite is coming out in November Thanksgiving weekend which is a fab release date and I'd love it all of Weisz/Stone/Colman can all get in *.*
Mary Queen Of Scots is also out of September and released later in the year which is a lot better for the film with award prospects as well
Boy Erased & Beautiful Boy I really don't know what to do with atm, both have got really positive reactions from Cinemacon but test screenings are supposedly mixed, I'd guess there's still time to fix them though.
A Star Is Born is gaining SO much buzz atm, lowkey can see Gaga winning the Oscar ohmy.gif

I'm gonna update my predictions in a min x
