It’s never too early to start making 2019 Oscar predictions. When the summer blockbuster season ends, films with Academy Award winning aspirations are right around the corner. Who will take home the 2019 Best Picture Oscar? Who is in the running for Best Actor and Best Actress? Here’s a look at who will win 2019 Oscars.

Before the 2019 Oscar nominations are even officially announced, there is already a ton of buzz surrounding dozens of movies that haven’t even hit the theater yet. One intriguing early contender is Damien Chazelle’s First Man, a biopic about the life of Neil Armstrong. Chazelle has a lot to live up to since he became the youngest person to ever win the Academy Award for Best Director in 2017 for his sophomore effort, La La Land

Other early contenders include Beautiful Boy, Black Panther, Boy Erased, and Backseat. In the acting department, expect to see all the usual suspects like Cate Blanchett, Christian Bale, and Nicole Kidman earn Award show buzz. Additionally, be on the lookout for Lady Gaga making her leading lady feature film debut in a role it looks like she was born to play.
