2021 OSCAR PREDICTIONS (April 23, 2021)

Here are some humble 2021 Oscar predictions based on current buzz, politics, sentiment, diversity and, of course, the degree of worthiness.

BEST PICTURE – NOMADLAND.  In previous competitions the breeze has usually blown in its direction.
BEST DIRECTOR – Chloe Zhao (NOMADLAND).  The category is hers.
BEST ACTRESS – Carey Mulligan (PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN).  One of the more difficult categories to predict this year.
BEST ACTOR – Chadwick Boseman (MA RAINEY’S BLACK BOTTOM).  It may not be his finest performance, but it is the last opportunity to acknowledge his talent.
BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS – Yuh-jung Youn (MINARI).  Grandmothers should get respect.
BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR – Daniel Kaluuya (JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH).  The category is his.
BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY – THE FATHER.  The most important award this title will receive goes to Christopher Hampton and Florian Zeller.
BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY – PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN.  Promising filmmaker Emerald Fennell earns this award.
BEST DOCUMENTARY – MY OCTOPUS TEACHER.  Sometimes a simple tale of friendship can overshadow more complex topics.
BEST ANIMATED FEATURE – SOUL.  Pixar strikes again.
BEST INTERNATIONAL FEATURE – ANOTHER ROUND.  Since it has been honored around the world, why shouldn’t it win?
BEST ANIMATED SHORT FILM – IF ANYTHING HAPPENS I LOVE YOU.  The loss of a child makes for powerful storytelling.
BEST DOCUMENTARY SHORT FILM – A CONCERTO IS A CONVERSATION.  The shortest in the category (13 minutes) makes a strong impression.

The winners will be announced at Los Angeles’ Union Station and the Dolby Theater on Sunday, April 25 (on ABC-TV at 8:00).

That’s the way I see it.
