Not apart of the Big Three (“1917,” “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood,” and “Parasite”) there’s very little chance for “Jojo Rabbit” to win. However, it is a front-runner in the Best Adapted Screenplay category after winning the WGA Award. Scarlett Johansson is still in contention for the Best Actress in a Supporting Role, although she’ll have to upset Laura Dern. The rest of the categories its nominated for seem fairly unlikely.

“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.
On the same day that Oscar ballots are due to be turned in, the Directors Guild have announced their five nominees for Best Theatrical Director, including the surprise inclusion of Taika Waititi for his work on “Jojo Rabbit.”
The Awards are held on January 28th at the Beverly Hilton Hotel with the ceremony being hosted by Mindy Kaling.
The winners will be announced at the Annual Awards Gala held at the Intercontinental Los Angeles Downtown on February 1st, 2020.
“The Irishman” has the most nominations with seven, while “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” and “Marriage Story” has the second most with six nominations each.
