Oscar Predictions - 2019

Best Picture - Roma
Best Director - Alfonso Cuarón, Roma
Best Actor - Rami Malek, Bohemian Rhapsody
Best Actress - Glenn Close, The Wife
Best Supporting Actor - Mahershala Ali, Green Book
Best Support Actress - Regina King, If Beale Street Could Talk)

Hedging my Bets:
Roma could get upset by Green Book or Bohemian Rhapsody.
Alfonso Cuarón has a tiny chance of losing to Spike Lee.
Rami Malek could lose to Christian Bale of Vice.
Mahershala Ali might lose to Richard E. Grant (Can You Ever Forgive Me?)

The Show Itself:
I have a feeling it's going to be a mess. The lack of a host hurts focus. I hear celebrities from the recording industry and sports will talk about what film means to them. That sounds boring. I also hear producers have no intention of keeping the show under three hours.
