Oscar Nominees: Best Original Screenplay

My predictions: 3/5
My ballot: Come back in February!
The nominees: The Favourite, First Reformed, Green Book, Roma, Vice

If one film had to score just one nomination in this race this year, joining the four Best Picture nominees expected to show up here, I wish it would have been “Eighth Grade” instead of First Reformed since I much preferred the former, and this was also a place I thought that “A Quiet Place,” which managed just one technical bid, might have been honored, but I’m not disappointed since I didn’t love that film either. I went out on a limb to guess that Roma wouldn’t make the cut, but that was foolish, as it proved to be a juggernaut, tying The Favourite for the most nominations. Green Book did pretty well, as did, much to my chagrin, Vice.

My current bet to win: I’m going with The Favourite which I recognize that it could just as easily be any of the rest.
