“Parasite” wins the Screen Actors Guild Ensemble Award and suddenly, the Best Picture landscape for the 92nd Academy Awards is much tighter. “1917” may have cleaned up at the Golden Globes and PGA Awards, but “Parasite” winning here definitely puts it back in the conversation. The individual acting awards, however, seemed more than locked, as all four are exactly who have been sweeping the awards season.
You can officially place “1917” in the frontrunner spot for Best Picture at the 92nd Academy Awards. Not only did it win big at the Golden Globes a few weekends ago, but now it has won one of the biggest predictors for the Best Picture winners, winning the Producers Guild’s biggest honors, beating out the likes of “Joker,” “The Irishman,” and “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.”
“Parasite” and “Jojo Rabbit” were honored by the American Cinema Editors with their annual ACE Eddie Awards. Both films are nominated for an Academy Award, so this could mean they’ll be the ones to beat for the Oscar.
Out of the 124 Academy Award nominations announced this morning, I was able to predict 89 of them correctly, putting my percentage at 72% correct. How did everyone else do?
John Cho and Issa Rae announced the 92nd Academy Award nominees this morning from the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.

Despite having fourteen nominations, “The Irishman” only took away one award from the 25th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards. “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood,” on the other hand, had twelve nominations was able to win four including Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay.
