Oscar Nominees: Best Adapted Screenplay

My predictions: 5/5
My ballot: Coming soon!
The nominees: CODA, Drive My Car, Dune, The Lost Daughter, The Power of the Dog

No surprises here, as I had already predicted that “West Side Story” would miss. The Lost Daughter is the only film not nominated for Best Picture, but it still had a better day than expected with two acting nods instead of one. Drive My Car did make the top race and shows up here, and this is one of only three overall bids for my favorite film of the year, CODA. And then we have the two most-nominated films of the year, both featuring strong scripts, Dune and The Power of the Dog.

My current bet to win: I would be very surprised if this didn’t go to The Power of the Dog.
