Tom O'Neil's Inside Track

Watch Oscar Predictions Smackdown: Anne Thompson vs. Tom O’Neil vs. Susan Wloszczyna [Exclusive Video & Audio Podcast]


Long overdue, but worth the wait: Finally, here’s a sassy predictions chat with two of Hollywood’s reigning Oscarologists: Anne Thompson (Indiewire) and Susan Wloszczyna, who’ve been predicting Oscars with us at Gold Derby for more than a decade. Watch video above or listen to the audio podcast below as we track the current state of the derby.

Is “A Star Is Born” really out front for Best Picture? Yes, says Anne, right now, but she reminds us that things could change by next week. Oscar mojo is a fickle thing. And, yes, Lady Gaga is ahead for Best Actress, according to most of our Experts, but Anne leads the charge for a different outcome for that race: Olivia Colman (“The Favourite”). Susan picks Glenn Close (“The Wife”), confessing, “because I want her to win!”
