    1. The Son. I'd have this guy as the odds-on favourite considering his last film, as well as his expertise (writing). He's also teaming up with Hampton again. Maybe he even tops himself and gets a directing nod this time. Or maybe this film flops.

    2. Killers of the Flower Moon. Eric Roth has a very Oscarly-resume and I think this is the first time he's teaming up with Scorsese. Adaptation is his forte, so, yeah, him being high up makes sense. But, for some reason, I don't get "winning" vibes from this project. I'm not sure why.

    3. Women Talking. Sarah Polley has a crazy amount of talent behind this project and in this film, and she has been nominated once before, so she make a lot of sense here, even if this film is about women (which Oscars tend to be harder on in general).

    4. Poor Things. Twice-nominated, the AMPAS seem to have a growing fondness for the director. The project sounds nutty, but so was The Lobster, and that got nominated and now we're post-The Favourite.

    5. The Greatest Beer Run Ever. Well, most AWers loathe Green Book, but this isn't about personal preference, is it? I'm pretty weak on this film, but seemingly stronger than most here. It's a period film that sounds inspirational and it's from filmmakers who were just involved with a BP winner. Seems like more of a threat to the race than the ones below atp.

    6. Living. I'd also elevate this one above the ones below. There is no reason to, but I think it's a more interesting prediction. It has some unique and respected lineage, being an adaptation of Akira Kurosawa. We have a respected novelist whose books have been translated into successful films (which he didn't adapt) trying his hand at another feature. We also have a character actor at the centre of it all in a baity role that could drag the movie along with him. The director's last outing did quite well.

    7. She Said. This sounds like a Spotlight for #MeToo. Lightning seldom strikes twice. But who knows. Right now, this feels like it could potentially be in the shadow of Women Talking where Polley's film might end up being about "showing" and this one being about "telling." Or maybe there is room for both. But, this is AMPAS we're talking about here.

    8. White Noise. Noah Baumbach has been nominated twice over fourteen years, so he has shown some longevity with Oscar. His films have been mostly about relationships, where, here, he's tackling more complex material, especially that might be alienating for audiences. Can he be successful? Maybe, maybe not.

    9. The Whale. Brendan Fraser sticks out as the most promising award-geared aspect for this movie. So, maybe he drags the movie along with his performance? But, this is a first-time feature screenwriter and Aronofksy films get nominated for performances, not screenplay, so I would hesitate to predict this.

    I'm assuming Banshee of Inisherin is original. Do we have any intel that it might be adapted?
