For Your Speculation

Ted and Rachel are joined by Cesco to review what happened after BFCA, the Globes and SAG revealed their nominations. Is Regina King still the frontrunner for If Beale Street Could Talk or is Amy Adams now going to win for Vice? Does Ethan Hawke still have a chance to get in or is First Reformed too weird for voters? Is Rami Malek going to carry Bohemian Rhapsody into Best Picture? Is Emily Blunt a done deal for a nomination for Mary Poppins Returns? All this plus our updated predictions in the top 6 categories.

Ted hosts a final roundtable podcast with most of our previous guests, Cesco, Erik, Topher, Rob and Matt, while we salute Rachel for taking it to the streets for the Women's March.

Join us as we give our final predictions for this year's Oscars. Lots of tight races for the final spot in each category leads to a lot of back and forth. And what the hell is up with Adapted Screenplay? We also leave Best Director for last this time, because we have opinions (all first-time nominees or does Spielberg show up?).


Our song this week is Sufjan Stevens' "Mystery of Love" from the Call Me By Your Name soundtrack.
