Feinberg Forecast: Oscar Standings During a Week of Purgatory

Oscar nomination voting ended Friday, but the noms won't be revealed until Jan. 24. In the meantime, THR's awards analyst offers his best guess of where things stand, factoring in the BAFTA, Directors Guild, Costume Designers Guild, Makeup and Hair Stylists Guild and American Society of Cinematographers noms, the LA Film Critics Association awards ceremony and the Palm Springs Film Fest.

These projections are a reflection of Scott Feinberg's personal impressions (from advance screenings), publicly available information (release dates, genres, talent rosters and teasers/trailers often offer valuable clues), historical considerations (how other films with similar pedigrees have resonated), precursor awards (some awards groups have historically correlated with the Academy more than others) and consultations with industry insiders (including fellow members of the press, awards strategists, filmmakers and awards voters).
