Oscars

Biggest Film Awards, oscars 2020 are just two days ahead, while some of the races have clear front-runners, plenty still seem to be up in the air. Prediction being made for the favorites, lets take a look who may win and who should.

Closely tracking the awards races all season. Here are the movies and stars expects to win.

Best Picture

1917

The Sam Mendes-directed war movie taken top honors from both the Producers and Directors guilds as well the director and drama prizes at the Golden Globes, and that’s the sort of awards-season war chest no other contender can compete with.

Though it debuted late last year, “1917” is cresting at just the right time: After six weeks of release, it’s made more than $120 million domestically, and it occupied the No. 2 slot at the box office last weekend.

Best Director

Sam Mendes

As 1917 could be a favorite movie in the season, earning huge chunk of dollars worldwide, Sam Mendes could be the winner for the best director category.

Best Actor

Joaquin Phoenix

No doubt, when it comes to the award of Best Actor, without thinking a second name, mindo automatically goes to Joaquin Phoenix.

Oscar voters are drawn to the tangible act of transformation, and though many of the nominees in this category are playing against type — including DiCaprio as a washed-up actor and Banderas as a quiet artist wrestling with pain — there is no more ostentatious act of transformation than Phoenix’s wrenching, intensely physical performance as the Joker.

Considered by many to be the best actor of his generation, Phoenix has never won an Oscar.

That may change on Sunday Night.

Best Actress

Renée Zellweger

Sixteen years after Zellweger awarded her first Oscar, a supporting-actress trophy for “Cold Mountain,” she may again return to the winner’s circle for playing a down-and-out Judy Garland in the last year of her life. None of the other contenders ever amassed enough momentum to truly compete with Zellweger, who’s been sitting pretty as the favorite all season. She’ll may become the 21st woman to win more than one Oscar for acting.

Best Supporting Actor

Brad Pitt

56-year-old Pitt is favourtite for winning the award of Best Supporting Actor for Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood.

Best Supporting Actress

Laura Dern

Laura Dern has a clear path to victory here.

Animated Feature

Toy Story 4

“Toy Story 4” is well-positioned to win.

What will be in the menu this time?

Let’s take a look at what Wolfgang Puck has planned this year, first.

For his 26th year, Puck returns to cater the post-Academy Awards event, the Governors Ball; but unlike past years, this year’s post-awards show menu will be comprised of “about 60 to 70 percent vegan dishes,”

We have about 60 to 70 percent vegan dishes. Some of the vegan dishes we can modify from meat too, if someone wants it,” Wolfgang Puck said in an interview.

Wolfgang Puck is the chief chef and caterer of the Oscars.

According to the famed chef, though this marks the first time the menu on Sunday,  February 9, will be predominantly plant-based, there have always been plenty of vegan choices on hand thanks to the versatility of many of his dishes. “We make our grilled vegetable pizza with pesto,” he explained. Furthermore “We always had roasted vegetables and great risottos which could be vegan. We always had a lot of vegan dishes, we just never talked about it.”
