Oscars 2020 predictions

There are four films widely expected to grab multiple nominations. Having won big at the Golden Globes, Sam Mendes' war movie 1917 is thought to be a clear frontrunner for Best Picture. Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is believed to be that movie's biggest competition, followed by The Irishman. However, whether the Oscar voters can get over their apparent hatred of Netflix movies and award Martin Scorsese's gangster epic the top prize remains to be seen.

Joker is also thought to be in contention for the top prize, while Little Women could surprise many and gain Greta Gerwig a second Best Director nomination. You can read our deeper look at the Oscars 2020 predictions here.
