Each month, we’ll take a look at all of the upcoming events that could have some small impact on the Oscars so you can plan out what to keep an eye on.

NOTE: We already know the Academy’s calendar has changed dramatically, so that event will not go on as planned, nor has it been rescheduled. The others may also face similar struggles. This is a historical record of what was potentially going to happen had the pandemic not reared its head.

Precursor: 50th NAACP Image Awards (2018)

The top nominee also became the top winner taking home a near-sweep with eight awards. Black Panther was unsurprisingly huge and its victories here make sense even if they weren’t the best nominees in each category.

91st Oscars: Reflections

Our contributors have watched the Oscars, looked at the winners, and have decided to share with you their thoughts of last night’s ceremony and results. It was a night of staid choices, a single interesting surprise, and a return to the cheap progressivism of the past. Before we get to our contributors’ thoughts, let’s look at how they did at predicting this year’s Oscars.

For the first time in awhile, the number of correct runner-up selections had to be consulted to determine a winner. Based on base predictions alone, Wesley, Peter, and Tripp finished the night with sixteen correct predictions. Thomas finished with 13. Among Wesley, Peter, and Tripp, Wesley ended up on top thanks to his 6 correct runner-up predictions compared to Peter’s 5 and Tripp’s 3. Thomas, even though he didn’t get his main predictions right, he managed to pick a winner or runner-up in ever category, which is a solid performance for a fourth-place finisher.
