Sack of Troy Official Oscars Predictions
by Hannah Ceselski & Keith Herrmann
It’s been a busy week here at The Sack, but we finally got it together and compiled our predictions for last night’s Oscars broadcast! Here are our picks for who most likely went home with the gold.
BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS
We predict that Regina King will have won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in If Beale Street Could Talk.
BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
If our calculations are correct, Mahershala Ali will continue to be known as the actor who won Best Supporting Actor at the 2019 Academy Awards.
BEST ORIGINAL SONG
It could only be Lady Gaga and Mark Ronson who will have won Best Original Song for “Shallow”, and it’s only kind of cheating that we found this picture of her crying and holding an Oscar, because she really could be crying about anything and holding anyone’s Oscar, right?
Alfonso Cuaron’s Roma is a deeply personal film that we believe garnered a Best Director Oscar for him, and we’ll go out on a limb and say that it wasn’t the only award he won! We know – it’s a risky bet, but it’s one we’re willing to take.
Rami Malek has received tons of accolades for his performance as Freddie Mercury, and we are predicting that he won an Oscar for it as well.
Call us crazy, but we’re pretty sure Olivia Colman is going to have won Best Actress in a major upset against frontrunner Glenn Close. We also predict that her acceptance speech will win another Academy Award in 2020.
Move aside, Roma! There’s not a single film that could have possibly won Best Picture this year over Adam Shankman’s Cheaper by the Dozen 2 (2005). While many of the nominees for Best Picture touched on themes of racism, sexuality, poverty, and addiction, only one film focuses on a rivalry between two overzealous patriarchs played by Steve Martin and Eugene Levy. That film is Cheaper by the Dozen 2, and we’ll be that it finally reaped its rewards.
