The yearly lead up to the Oscars is one that many look forward to and one that generates an equal amount of press and attention as the SAG awards and, for those in the U.K, the BAFTA Awards. Nominees are announced in January each year. In previous years, this was carried out in front of journalists and publicists however in 2018; the Academy chose to change its format and create its own presentation in-house and stream it live via its website. Votes for the nominees are submitted prior to the announcement, and the March 4th ceremony will mark the joyous celebration for winners and a less celebratory evening for those who were not selected.
Jimmy Kimmel is set to host the Oscars, the 90th to date once again. This will be his second time hosting the prestigious awards show. For Kimmel, he claims hosting the night is a highlight of his career and is looking forward to another monologue that is sure to have some attendees a little nervous and worried about being singled out, as it tradition for the host to do.

The Oscars is always an exciting time for aficionados of film. It gives people time to reflect on the movies they have watched over the year and recall how they affected them, brought them joy and took them to places they do not get to experience in their everyday lives.
It is that celebration that defines the Oscars, and it is the directors’, writers’ and actors’ portrayal of characters that the event is all about.
Below, we take a look at the early contenders for success in some of the main categories at the 2019 Oscars.
This year’s competition for Best Picture is certain to be hotly contested and will be a popular market for people looking at Oscars betting.
A Star is Born, If Beale Street Could Talk, First Man, Black Panther and Vice will be amongst the favourites, while BlacKkKlansman, The Favourite, Roma, Green Book and Widows could also be in the running.
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.
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.
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.
Other nominees in this category include:
“The Big Sick,” Emily V. Gordon & Kumail Nanjiani
“Get Out,” Jordan Peele
“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” Martin McDonagh
Best Adapted Screenplay
If Beale Street Could Talk, BlacKkKlansman, First Man, Can You Ever Forgive Me? and Widows are leading fancies to scoop this award, with Beautiful Boy, Boy Erased and Mary Queen of Scots other films that could be in line for a nomination.
