UPDATED: May 3, 2021

PRICE FORECAST COMMENTARY: A tradition for 16 years, I always threw blows in the dark in the week following the Oscars. For the first time, my first choice of a year, “Nomadland” by Chloé Zhao, won the photo and director award. Can lightning strike twice?

The past two years have included thoughts that Kasi Lemmons’ 2019 ‘Harriet’ would make a big Academy debut, with the top spots for eventual nominee Cynthia Erivo, but the love ends there. In 2018, I suspected that Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Irishman’ would arrive on time, but alas, it was postponed until 2019.

Other past picks include “Phantom Thread” from 2017 (then untitled), “Silence” from 2016 (although I had “Moonlight” in the 10 predicted), “The Good Dinosaur” from 2015 (Pixar must come closer for a moment, right?), “Inherent Vice” from 2014 (why not another essay for Paul Thomas Anderson?), “The Counselor” from 2013 (still circling Ridley Scott’s late tale), “ Lincoln ”of 2012 (probably the finalist of“ Argo ”, which was also predicted) and“ War Horse ”of 2011 (Steven Spielberg is never a bad choice).

While it’s exciting to be a promising awards nominee, no one likes to be the favorite this early on, so I should start with: we don’t know anything yet.

I should also point out that the producers credited, release dates and ratings are subject to change… in other words, let’s not take this too seriously.
