Oscars 2020 Winners (predictions and actuals): May the morning after be bright with sunshine and minimal bloodbath

Parasite

Oscar is tonight and it's time for last minute predictions! Added my friend Griz's predictions in purple. May the best prognosticator win at doing things that don't matter! (Actual results will be in red).

So, a few thoughts about the show and the winners :
- New hashtags: #oscarstryhard, #oscarsgoodnoracist, and #oscarsokorean
- PARASITE
- How amazing is Bong Joon-ho and his speeches? The best of the night, honouring the fellow nominees so beautifully and unexpectedly.
- The cow and the milk and the cow's milk in your coffee. Well, they did give the prize to Joaquin, so I guess that was par for the course.
- WTF EMIMEM? WHY?
- Does anyone know what Renee was on?
- James Corden and Rebel Wilson in cat costumes playing with the mic was a thing. Unfortunately, we also had Emimen and Phoenix so there were lots of things.
- Eilish was the least weird of the night.
- Maya and Kristen were funny and NOT weird. Why was that so hard to do?
- Lovely speech from the woman composer, Hildur Guðnadóttir.
- I love Olivia Colman.
- Sigourney Weaver said "All women are superheroes"? Speak for yourself, sister. I'm here for the okay people. *channeling Boyega*

PICTURE
Parasite!!!!!!!
Alt. 1917

I'm going to be bold and predict something outrageous. Come on SAG, you can help it!

1917

Alt. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

DIRECTOR
Sam Mendes - 1917
Alt. Bong Joon-ho - Parasite!!!!!

This is Sam Mendes' to lose. <----- and lose he did! Wowza.

Alt. Bong Joon Ho - Parasite


ACTRESS
Renee Zellwegger - Judy
Alt. Scarlett Johansson - Marriage Story

The acting categories have been a clean swept, so I'd expect no difference at the Oscars. It's so sad that Scarlett will go home empty handed - she's had a major year, and would've won with Jojo in another year.

Renee Zellweger - Judy 
Alt. Scarlett Johansson - Marriage Story  

ACTOR
Joaquin Phoenix - Joker
Alt. Antonio Banderas – Pain and glory

Joaquin Phoenix - Joker 
Alt. Adam Driver - Marriage Story 

SUPPORTING ACTRESS
Laura Dern - Marriage story
Alt. Scarlett Johansson – Jojo Rabbit

Laura Dern - Marriage Story
Alt. Scarlett Johansson - Jojo Rabbit 


SUPPORTING ACTOR
Brad Pitt - Once upon a time ... in Hollywood
Alt. Anthony Hopkins – The two popes

Brad Pitt - Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
Alt. Joe Pesci - The Irishman


ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY
Bong Joon-ho and Han Jin Wong - Parasite
Alt. Noah Baumbach - Marriage Story

WGA gave it to Parasite, and Bong's fans may be pushing for this award for him at the very least.

ADAPTED SCREENPLAY
Taika Waititi - Jojo Rabbit
Alt. Anthony McCarten - The two popes

I hope Jojo gets it - consolation prize for Waititi.

Jojo Rabbit 
Alt. Little Women 

INTERNATIONAL FEATURE
Parasite
Alt. Pain and glory

As if there's another choice. Too bad really, because I'd pick Pain and Glory over Parasite.

Parasite (South Korea)
Alt. Pain and Glory (Spain)

ANIMATED
Klaus
Alt. Toy story 4

I would've picked Toy Story 4, but the Annie surprisingly went to Klaus so I dunno.

Toy Story 4
Alt:Klaus


DOCUMENTARY
American Factory
Alt. Honeyland

Having seen American Factory, I'd say it's a shoo-in because the Oscars is concerned with Americans (but also, serious issues).

CINEMATOGRAPHY
Roger Deakins - 1917
Alt. Robert Richardson - Once upon a time ... in Hollywood

Freakin' Deakins.

1917
Alt. Joker 

EDITING
Parasite x Ford v Ferrari!
Alt. Jojo Rabbit

This is a big technical category for Parasite to win, and determines most of the time the Best Picture winner.

Ford v Ferrari
Alt: Parasite


PRODUCTION DESIGN
1917
Alt. Once upon a time ... in Hollywood

It's open, but 1917 just looks laborious.

Alt: 1917


VISUAL EFFECTS
1917
Alt. The Lion King

I'm going to 'serious.'

SOUND MIXING
Ford v Ferrari x Joker
Alt. 1917

Ford v Ferrari 
Alt. 1917 

SOUND EDITING
Joker
Alt. Ford v Ferrari

I'm only switching around because Joker may get something technical and this may be a good category for it to take. But there's no reason why Ford couldn't take this category either. Flip a coin!

Ford v Ferrari
Alt. 1917

MAKE UP and HAIRSTYLING
Bombshell
Alt. 1917

There's Judy, and maybe Judy may take it. But the whole thing around Bombshell has been how much Charlize looks like whatsherface, so I'm guessing it'll get something here.

Judy
Alt. Joker

COSTUME
Little Women
Alt. Jojo Rabbit

Consolation prize?

Little Women
Alt. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

SCORE
1917
Alt. Joker

Very notable song sung in the film, and notable soundtrack too, so I'm betting on that.

Joker
Alt. 1917 

SONG
Rocketman
Alt. Frozen II

Elton's to lose.

Rocketman
Alt. Toy Story 4
