Tom O'Neil's Inside Track

Oscar predictions smackdown 2019: Pete Hammond, Anne Thompson and I track the Best Picture race [Video & Audio Podcast]


Just based upon the fierce clashing views in our video chat (watch above), it may seem like Pete Hammond (Deadline), Anne Thompson (Indiewire) and I don’t agree on much, but we actually do concur on which ponies are the early Oscar frontrunners for Best Picture. We just don’t agree on which ones are ahead of each other.

Anne is passionate about “Roma” and she’s not alone. She’s among the eight Experts who pick it to win. That’s the most, followed by six for “A Star Is Born” and four for “First Man.”

See all of Anne’s Oscar predictions here. Mine here. See the rankings generated by combing our picks with those of other Experts, too.
