Inevitably, the directors for many of the films in the mix to scoop the Best Picture prize will be in contention for this award.

Spike Lee (BlacKkKlansman), Barry Jenkins (If Beale Street Could Talk) and Damien Chazelle (First Man), but Bradley Cooper could top them all for his stunning directorial debut with A Star is Born.

Peter Farrelly (Green Book), Ryan Coogler (Black Panther), Steve McQueen (Widows) and Adam McKay (Vice) are others who could be in line for this award.

Best Actor

This is always another highly-contested category that generates worldwide buzz. Cooper seems sure to be amongst the front-runners, but he is sure to face stiff competition from elsewhere.

Christian Bale (Vice), Ryan Gosling (First Man), Viggo Mortensen (Green Book) and Lucas Hedges (Boy Erased) may be amongst the nominations, with Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody), Robert Redford (The Old Man and the Gun) and Steve Carell (Beautiful Boy) other strong contenders.

Best Actress

If you believe the hype this category will be a case of Lady Gaga first, the rest nowhere. Her work in A Star is Born is quite staggering, although there are plenty of other talented actresses in with a shot of winning an Oscar.

Saoirse Ronan (Mary Queen of Scots), Viola Davis (Widows), Olivia Colman (The Favourite) and Melissa McCarthy (Can You Ever Forgive Me?) could all give Lady Gaga a run for her money. Glenn Close (The Wife) and Nicole Kidman (Destroyer) are others worthy of consideration.

Best Supporting Actor

If Cooper and Lady Gaga hit the high notes in the other categories, Sam Elliott could add to A Star is Born’s triumphs in this particular category.

Sam Rockwell (Vice), Timothee Chalamet, (Beautiful Boy), Mahershala Ali (Green Book), Daniel Kaluuya (Widows) and Richard E. Grant (Can You Ever Forgive Me) are other potential challengers.

Best Supporting Actress

This category seems sure to have some big names battling for the Oscar. Regina King (If Beale Street Could Talk), Margot Robbie (Mary Queen of Scots), Claire Foy (First Man), Amy Adams (Vice) and Emma Stone (The Favourite) make up a strong early shortlist.

However, Nicole Kidman (Boy Erased), Michelle Yeoh (Crazy Rich Asians) and Sissy Spacek (The Old Man and the Gun) are also worth watching in the betting.

Best Original Screenplay

This year’s Oscar nominations clearly favour a handful of films and several in the Best Original Screenplay category standout. The Shape of Water and Lady Bird are among our favourites, but for us, The Shape of Water is one most favoured to win for its plot that follows the life of a mute custodian as he carries out his duties at the secure government laboratory.
