Feinberg Forecast: Updated Oscar Projections as AFI Fest Winds to a Close

6:15 AM 11/15/2018

by Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter's awards columnist offers his latest read of the race, now including the cinematography and original song categories.

"Elizabeth's dressing was more strategic," says Byrne 

These projections reflect Scott Feinberg's personal impressions (from 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).

GLOSSARY  The following abbreviations denote the film festival(s) at which a film has screened and/or will be screening: SUND=Sundance, SXSW=South by Southwest, TRIB=Tribeca, CANN=Cannes, VENI=Venice, TELL=Telluride, TIFF=Toronto, NYFF=New York, LOND=London and AFIF=AFI Fest.
