  • Nomadland
  • Promising Young Woman
  • Minari
  • The Trial of the Chicago 7
  • Mank
  • Judas and the Black Messiah
  • The Father
  • Sound of Metal

Who we think will win the award? We’ve been tilting for Nomadland. It’s made the biggest hype pre-Oscars and got the Best Film for drama award at the Golden Globes.


Oscar 2021 Predictions: Best Director

  • Chloé Zhao (Nomadland)
  • Thomas Vinterberg (Another Round)
  • Emerald Fennell (Promising Young Woman)
  • Lee Isaac Chung (Minari)
  • David Fincher (Mank)

Who we think will win the award? We’re pushed to decide between some of these, but Chloé Zhao should get it. Zhao landed the Golden Globes’ Best Director gong, and an Oscars win will crown an excellent year for her.

  • Chadwick Boseman (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom)
  • Steven Yeun (Minari)
  • Gary Oldman (Mank)
  • Riz Ahmed (Sound of Metal)
  • Anthony Hopkins (The Father)

Who we think will win the award? Chadwick Boseman hands down. As good as the other four other nominees are in their respective movies, the late actor looks like a winner for this award. Boseman’s posthumous Golden Globes win makes this easy for us to pick. He did a marvelous job in the movie.


Oscar 2021 Predictions: Best Actress

  • Viola Davis (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom)
  • Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman)

  • Leslie Odom Jr. (One Night in Miami)
  • Sacha Baron Cohen (The Trial of the Chicago 7)
  • Daniel Kaluuya (Judas and the Black Messiah)
  • Paul Raci (Sound of Metal)

Who we think will win the award? We think Daniel Kaluuya is a brilliant contender for the award. Judas and the Black Messiah has created a lot of buzz in 2021, and Kaluuya’s brilliant performance – which is coupled with his Golden Globes win, it makes it easy for us to pick.

  • Amanda Seyfried (Mank)
  • Olivia Colman (The Father)
  • Maria Bakalova (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm)
  • Glenn Close (Hillbilly Elegy)
  • Yuh-Jung Youn (Minari)

  • Soul
  • Onward
  • Over the Moon
  • Wolfwalkers
  • A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon

Who we think will win the award? Soul is a favorite in this category. Pixar’s version of the afterlife, and the process it has made on human characters in times, Especially with a Golden Globe win, I’m sure it will secure the Oscar as well.


Oscar 2021 Predictions: Best Score

  • Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (Soul)
  • James Newton Howard (News of the World)
  • Emile Mosseri (Minari)
  • Terence Blanchard (Da 5 Bloods)
  • Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (Mank)

Who we think will win the award? Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross won the last oscar more than 10 years ago, and they might get their second Academy Award for their score on Soul. A Golden Globes Best Score success only makes this win more likely as well.
