Who will win the Oscars? Only best picture seems up for grabs

Who will win the Oscars? Only best picture seems up for grabs

Is 2020 the year Oscar acquires an international flair? Or will it be business as usual?

That’s what the race will come down to when the 92nd Academy Awards are presented today.

While foreign-made films such as “Parasite” and “1917” have done well at early awards ceremonies, they could be pushed aside by more traditional choices — “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood” and “The Irishman.”

The question, though, won’t be answered until the final trophy is presented. That’s because no film really has the clout to dominate in a lot of categories. This isn’t the year of “Titanic” or “Gone With the Wind.” It’s a year when something could win best picture and little else.

Among the givens: “Parasite” will win best international feature film (the new title for best foreign film). “1917” will get best cinematography. “Frozen 2” won’t win best animated feature film (it wasn’t even nominated).

“Joker,” which led the nominations with 11, could go home with one. “The Irishman” and “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood,” which followed with 10, could go home with nothing. It’s just that kind of year.

By category, here’s how the race should go.
