2020 Oscar Predictions: Best Picture (Updated: October 21)

2020 Oscar Predictions: Best Picture (Updated: October 21)
Predicting the winner of the Academy Award for Best Picture is never easy. We were sure the top prize at the 2019 Oscars would go to “Roma” but it was “Green Book” that won. In coming up with our 2020 Oscar predictions, we considered a slew of factors, starting with the preferential ballot used to determine the winner. Add in the pedigree of the filmmakers, the critical reception to the films, the box office tally and the track record of the studios. We take all of these into consideration again as we look ahead to the 2020 Academy Awards. (Scroll down for the most up-to-date 2020 Oscars predictions for Best Picture.)

Contenders began to emerge at the Sundance Film Festival in January. Others will be seen for the first time at the Cannes Film Festival in May. However, most of the top tier of Best Picture hopefuls won’t screen until September at four film festivals: Venice,

Game Of Thrones, Chernobyl, and Fleabag Win Big at the Emmy Awards; Here's the Full List of Winners

The 2019 Emmy Awards took place last night, and there were a lot of fan-favorite shows that won big! I was personally very happy to see HBO’s Chernobyl win Outstanding Limited Series along with the two other awards it took home. It was also awesome to see Bill Hader win for Outstanding Comedy Actor for his role in Barry. That is certainly a deserved win as he’s awesome in that series!

Regardless of what fans thought about the ending of Game of Thrones, the series did win Outstanding Drama Series. I imagine it won for everything that it accomplished as a whole. Peter Dinklage also won Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series again, which is great!

Then there’s the Amazon series Fleabag, which took home four awards including Outstanding Comedy Series. I’ve never watched the show, but plan to start watching it soon.

‘Chernobyl’ Wins Emmy for Outstanding Limited Series

‘Chernobyl’ Wins Emmy for Outstanding Limited Series
Chernobyl” was one of 2019’s most celebrated shows, and the acclaimed HBO historical drama secured its mark on television history by winning the Emmy for Outstanding Limited Series Sunday evening.

The five-part miniseries dramatized the Soviet Union’s 1986 nuclear disaster and the subsequent cleanup efforts. “Chernobyl” was often a harrowing and bleak watch—understandable, given its subject matter—but that didn’t stop critics from praising the series. IndieWire’s Ben Travers gave the show an A- and referred to it as a “stunning dramatization” in his April review.

Series creator and writer Craig Mazin gave special thanks to the people of Lithuania, where much of “Chernobyl” was filmed, in an acceptance speech. Mazin also won the Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series or TV Movie earlier in the evening. Mazin’s dark writing some creative liberties, but much of “Chernobyl” was rooted in historical accuracy. Actors including Jared Harris,

Emmys: Patricia Arquette Makes Powerful Plea for Trans Rights
Patricia Arquette gave an impassioned plea for transgender rights while accepting an Emmy on Sunday night. The actress won for her supporting role as Dee Dee Blanchard in Hulu’s true-crime limited series “The Act.”

“I just have to say I’m grateful to be working, I’m grateful at 50 to be getting the best parts of my life,” Arquette began her acceptance speech. “But in my heart I’m so sad. I lost my sister Alexis.”

Arquette’s sister, transgender actress Alexis Arquette, died in 2016 at age 47. “Trans people are still being persecuted,” she continued. “I’m in mourning every day of my life, Alexis, and I will be for the rest of my life for you, until we change the world so trans people are not persecuted — and give them jobs. They’re human beings, let’s get rid of this bias we have everywhere.”

‘Chernobyl’ vs. ‘When They See Us’: Who has the edge in this fierce Best Limited Series Emmy battle?

The Best Limited Series Emmy battle . has shaped up to be a two-horse race between HBO’s “Chernobyl” and Netflix’s “When They See Us,” both of which crashed the scene in the final month of eligibility (May) and were met with instant critical acclaim and an arousing audience response. “Chernobyl” racked up 19 nominations, the most for any limited series this year, and “When They See Us” earned 16. Both are grim fact-based dramas, undeniably timely, and have one writing and directing nom each, but where do they differ? The following five factors could end up tipping the scales in one’s or the other’s favor:

Emmy Handicaps 2019: Actress In A Limited Series Or Movie
Here’s another category in which a pair from Ava DuVernay’s When They See Us will be competing against each other, as well as a formidable field of three veterans with Oscar-worthy careers, and one 20-year-old who has been in the business almost as long as they have. Like Lead Actor in a Limited Series/Movie, all six nominees here come from Limited Series, which is another example of why the traditional TV movie performance that used to dominate these categories is all but dead when it comes to Emmy recognition.

Why Craig Mazin could win the Emmy for his ‘Chernobyl’ script

Why Craig Mazin could win the Emmy for his ‘Chernobyl’ script
You’ve probably seen some of Craig Mazin‘s films even if you haven’t realized it. The screenwriter was behind “The Hangover Part II” (2011), “The Hangover Part III” (2013), “Identity Thief” (2013) and “The Huntsman: Winter’s War” (2016). All of his screen credits, in fact, had have been in film until now. He made his big television debut with the HBO miniseries “Chernobyl,” chronicling the 1986 nuclear plant disaster in northern Ukrainian Ssr, and is currently the odds-on favorite to win the Best Limited Series/TV Movie Writing Emmy.

Since this is a real event that had such wide-ranging effects, getting the facts straight is of the utmost importance, but “Chernobyl” thrives in its balance between factual evidence and emotional beats. And these beats aren’t only prompted by the show’s striking visual presentation, but by its depiction of the disaster’s long-lasting implications and its character-driven nature. For instance, by
