Oscars – 2018 “Popular Film” Predictions

Yep, this sucks.

In the extended history of the Academy Awards we may be looking at the first category that doesn’t revolve around being the “best” at, well, anything. Except for maybe making money.

I am starting to doubt that these imposed changes will take effect however. The backlash is rightfully strong. There are also several variables and amendments that could still be made.

IF there is a “Popular Film” category, what is the criteria? Does it need to make X amount of dollars to qualify? Once we have our nominations does the Academy vote on the “best” of the bunch? Or the most financially impactful?

What a mess. For these predictions we’ll look at the Top of 2018’s box office and sort of predict the box office successes throughout the year.

Here they are:

Popular Film (08/09/18)
Black Panther
A Quiet Place
Mission Impossible: Fallout
Paddington 2
