To be honest I was pleased with how 2019 turned out in the end...mostly. Surely 2020 can't screw it up?

I'm pulling for Ridley Scott and The Last Duel, but that kind of film doesn't get much Academy love anymore, and only four of his films have ever become awards contenders, so it's an extreme long shot.

I predict that another member of the Coppola family will win an Oscar: Roman Coppola for The French Dispatch.

Not unless they announce a new category for "Best Story"

That is false. The Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay is given to the people who wrote the screenplay and to the people who wrote the story, just look at examples like Pulp Fiction or Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind...

Well color me surprised, touché. I wish I was friends with a great writer, could have a few fun pow-wows spewing my ideas, have them sit down and write the script and then show up to win an Oscar (I’m being ridiculous but something doesn’t feel equitable here)
