(UPDATED: February 25, 2019)

Welcome to conclusion of my eighth year of Every Movie Has a Lesson's "Awards Tracker."  My goal every year is simple: Help each and every one of you win your Oscar pools. I don’t know about you, but I got smoked with a 14-10 spread across the 24 categories, easily my lowest score in these eight years. Time to get back in the saddle next year.

This year, I was proud to now be a member of three awards-voting bodies. As a director and co-founder, I locally represented the Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle. In 2017, I became a new voter of the Online Film and Television Awards. My big step in 2018 came when I was accepted into the Online Film Critics Society, the largest national group of online critics. It’s a pleasure and honor to see my own picks make it into the award seasons discussion on those fronts.

Here's how this little page of my personal interest works.  I find value in tracking the trends and following the tea leaves of the all the minor lead-up awards before the Oscars.  I chart the winners of each category with listed winners and comments on the surrounding buzz. 


BEST MOTION PICTURE

OSCAR REACTION:  Surprise, surprise. The white savior narrative wins. Boy, Twitter is going to have a field day for a long time with this one, and by long time I mean like 48 hours, which is an eternity by Twitter standards. You can bet Green Book will now make those retrospective lists that come out every year of the least likely and least deserving Best Picture winners of Academy Award history, right there next to Crash and Shakespeare in Love. The cinephile reception for this one is that bad.

WINNERS:  

23- Roma  (NY, Chicago, SF, DC, LA, TOR, PHI, SS, SEA, KC, LV, NYO, VAN, ACT, NC, OK, Online, SE, CC, DEN, EDA, London, BAFTA)

10- The Favourite  (ATL, WC, KC, HOU, FL, NM, PCC, IA, GAL, OFTA)

7- If Beale Street Could Talk  (Boston, GW, COL, SAT, AUS, CIFCC, Spirit)

7- Green Book  (TIFF, NBR, NT, PHX, Globe, NV, Oscar)

4- A Star is Born  (DFW, STL, SAT, GA)

2- The Hate U Give  (IN, LAO)

2- The Rider (GIFA, NSFC)

2- Black Panther  (AA, BF)

1- Leave No Trace (SD)

1- Eighth Grade  (DET)

1- You Were Never Really Here  (BO)

1- Avengers: Infinity War (PC)

1- Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse  (UT)

1- Bohemian Rhapsody  (Globe)

1- Custody  (DUB)

1- Shoplifters  (Cannes)

1- The Miseducation of Cameron Post  (Sundance)


BEST DIRECTOR

OSCAR REACTION: This was a no-doubt awards season sweep for Alfonso Cuaron. You know, when you look at the history, the only American director to win Best Director this decade is Damian Chazelle for La La Land. The foreign dominance between Cuaron, Guillermo del Toro, Alejandro G. Inarritu, Ang Lee, Michel Hazanavicius, and Tom Hooper is really something. The U.S. of A. really needs to step up.

36- Alfonso Cuaron for Roma  (NY, ATL, Chicago, DC, TOR, SEA, DFW, IN, KC, LV, NYO, UT, NSFC, ACT, HOU, FL, COL, NT, NC, OK, Online, PCC, PHX, SAT, SE, Globe, IA, CC, DEN, EDA, GA, GAL, London, DGA, BAFTA, Oscar)

5- Spike Lee for BlacKkKlansman  (SF, STL, LAO, NV, CIFCC)

3- Lynne Ramsey for You Were Never Really Here  (BO, Boston, LAO)

3- Barry Jenkins for If Beale Street Could Talk  (PHI, GW, Spirit)

2- Debra Granik for Leave No Trace  (LA, SD)

2- Ryan Coogler for Black Panther  (AA, BF)

2- Pawel Pawlikowski for Cold War  (Cannes, EFA)

2- Yorgos Lanthimos for The Favourite  (NM, OFTA)

1- Chloe Zhao for The Rider  (DUB)

1- Paul Schrader for First Reformed  (VAN)

1- Bradley Cooper for A Star is Born  (NBR)

1- Adam McKay for Vice  (DET)

1- Sara Colangelo for The Kindergarten Teacher  (Sundance)


BEST ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE

OSCAR REACTION:  Say what you will or won’t about Bohemian Rhapsody or your wishes for Ethan Hawke, this was, as the winner himself said, a “monumental” moment for Rami Malek. He was outstanding, through and through.

WINNERS:  

32- Ethan Hawke for First Reformed  (GIFA, NY, ATL, DET, LA, Chicago, SF, DC, TOR, SD, WC, SEA, BO, IN, KC, NYO, STL, VAN, UT, NSFC, GW, NC, OK, Online, PCC, SE, DEN, EDA, GA, GAL, CIFCC, London, Spirit)

10- Rami Malek for Bohemian Rhapsody  (ACT, LAO, NT, SAT, IA, Globe, SAG, BAFTA, OFTA, Oscar)

8- Christian Bale for Vice  (PHI, DFW, KC, HOU, Globe, NV, CCx2)

2- Bradley Cooper for A Star is Born  (DC, BF)

2- Viggo Mortensen for Green Book  (NBR, PHX)

2- Marcello Fonte for Dogman  (Cannes, EFA)

1- Willem Dafoe for At Eternity’s Gate  (SAT)

1- Ben Foster for Leave No Trace  (COL)

1- Joaquin Phoenix for You Were Never Really Here  (FL)

1- John C. Reilly for Stan & Ollie  (Boston)

1- Victor Polster for Girl  (NM)

1- John David Washington for BlacKkKlansman  (AA)

1- Charlie Plummer for Lean on Pete  (DUB)

1- Benjamin Dickey for Blaze  (Sundance)


BEST ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE

OSCAR REACTION:   The frontrunner and dominant winner of the awards season fended off the surging veteran. That’s like winning twice at the Academy Awards and their penchant for awarding career resumes over top performances.

WINNERS:  

22- Olivia Colman for The Favourite  (ATL, DC, TOR, WC, DFW, VAN, NSFC, ACT, COL, NC, SAT, SE, Globe, IA, CC, DEN, EDA, GAL, London, BAFTA, OFTA, Oscar)

12- Toni Collette for Hereditary  (GIFA, DET, Chicago, SEA, BO, STL, HOU, LAO, NT, Online, NV, GA)

7- Glenn Close for The Wife  (SD, NM, SAT, Globe, CC, SAG, Spirit)

6- Melissa McCarthy for Can You Ever Forgive Me?  (SF, Boston, NYO, VAN, FL, PCC)

4- Lady Gaga for A Star is Born  (NBR, DC, PHX, CC)

3- Regina Hall for Support the Girls  (NY, AA, VAN)

2- Elsie Fisher for Eighth Grade  (UT, CIFCC)

2- Viola Davis for Widows  (PHI, BF)

2- Yalitza Aparicio for Roma  (GW, OK)

1- Joanna Kulig for Cold War (EFA)

1- Nicole Kidman for Destroyer (NV)

1- Amanda Stenberg for The Hate U Give  (IN)

1- Charlotte Rampling for Hannah  (DUB)

1- Samal Yeslyamova for Ayka  (Cannes)


BEST ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE

OSCAR REACTION:  Grant would have been lovely, and Sam Elliott would have been even better. But, I can’t argue with Mahershala Ali, his stature, and his talent. The man just became the second two-time black Oscar winner after Denzel Washington. Don’t call it a torch passed. Just call it a second torch and let’s see some more get added going forward.

WINNERS:  

22- Richard E. Grant for Can You Ever Forgive Me?  (NY, Chicago, PHI, SD, SEA, BO, Boston, KC, NYO, STL, VAN, UT, COL, PCC, SAT, SE, NV, EDA, GAL, CIFCC, London, OFTA, Spirit)

15- Mahershala Ali for Green Book  (DC, DFW, ACT, HOU, BF, LAO, NT, PHX, Globe, IA, CC, DEN, SAG, BAFTA, Oscar)

5- Sam Elliott for A Star is Born  (NBR, ATL, IN, NM, GA)

5- Steven Yeun for Burning  (LA, TOR, NSFC, GW, FL)

4- Michael B. Jordan for Black Panther  (SF, NC, OK, Online)

2- Hugh Grant for Paddington 2 (BAFTA, UT)

2- Russell Hornsby for The Hate U Give  (AA, LAO)

1- Timothee Chalamat for Beautiful Boy  (SD)

1- Josh Hamilton for Eighth Grade  (DET)


BEST ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE

OSCAR REACTION:   The dominant Regina King finished her reign through this awards season on top with a no-doubt win. Let’s see her continue her film career further after her long successes on television. Thank you for being the Oscar candlelight flicker for If Beale Street Could Talk, my #1 film of 2018.

WINNERS:  

36- Regina King for If Beale Street Could Talk  (NBR, NY, DET, SF, DC, LA, TOR, PHI, SEA, AA, BO, Boston, DFW, IN, NYO, STL, NSFC, GW, COL, BF, LAO, NC, OK, Online, PCC, SAT, SE, Globe, IA, CC, EDA, GAL, CIFCC, OFTA, Spirit, Oscar)

6- Rachel Weisz for The Favourite  (VAN, HOU, NV, DEN, London, BAFTA)

4- Emma Stone for The Favourite  (ATL, NT, PHX, GA)

2- Sakura Ando for Shoplifters  (FL, NM)

2- Olivia Colman for The Favourite  (Chicago, UT)

1- Emily Blunt for A Quiet Place (SAG)

1- Nicole Kidman for Boy Erased  (ACT)

1- Amy Adams for Vice  (KC)


BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY

OSCAR REACTION:   This surprise win looked like a possible omen for a Best Picture win for Green Book. In the moment, Samuel L. Jackson’s face opening that envelope said it all. That’s how off this winner was. This was also the moment we all thought The Favourite was going to go home empty-handed after 10 nominations before Colman’s win slashed the goose egg.

WINNERS:  

18- Deborah Davis and Tony McNamara for The Favourite  (ATL, DC, TOR, SEA, DFW, KC, NYO, ACT, NM, NC, PCC, SE, NV, EDA, GAL, London, BAFTA, OFTA)

12- Paul Schrader for First Reformed  (GIFA, NBR, NY, Chicago, SF, TOR, BO, IN, VAN, OK, Online, CC)

6- Bo Burnham for Eighth Grade  (SD, UT, COL, GA, CIFCC, WGA)

4- Nick Vallelonga, Brian Hayes Curry, and Peter Farrelly for Green Book  (DET, PHX, Globe, Oscar)

3- Boots Riley for Sorry to Bother You  (GW, FL, BF)

3- Adam McKay for Vice  (DET, STL, LAO)

1- Pawel Pawlikowski for Cold War (EFA)

1- John Krasinski, Scott Beck, and Bryan Woods for A Quiet Place (DEN)

1- Alfonso Cuaron for Roma  (SAT)

1- Christine Choe for Nancy  (Sundance)

1- Alice Rohrwacher for Happy as Lazarro  (Cannes)

1- Jafar Panahi for 3 Faces  (Cannes)


BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY

OSCAR REACTION:  Spike Lee deserved a moment, got his moment, and nailed his moment. Great speech and story! Say it with me: “Academy Award winner Spike Lee.”

WINNERS:  

12- Charlie Wachtel, David Rabinowitz, Kevin Willmott and Spike Lee for BlacKkKlansman  (SF, AA, KC, STL, COL, OK, SE, DEN, GA, CIFCC, BAFTA, Oscar)

9- Nicole Holofcener and Jeff Whitty for Can You Ever Forgive Me?  (DC, LA, Boston, FL, PHX, SAT, EDA, WGA, Spirit)

1- Ryan Coogler and Joe Robert Cole for Black Panther (NV)

1- Oh Jung-mi and Lee Chang-dong for Burning  (NM)

1- Lynne Ramsey for You Were Never Really There  (DUB)

1- Phil Lord and Rodney Rothman for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse  (UT)


BEST ANIMATED FEATURE

OSCAR REACTION:   The lock of the night was locked with the key thrown away. Great to see the comic book love!

WINNERS:

30- Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse  (NY, DET, Chicago, SF, LA, SEA, AA, BO, IN, KC, NYO, STL, UT, GW, COL, BF, LAO, NC, OK, Online, PCC, Globe, CC, DEN, EDA, GA, Annie, CIFCC, BAFTA, OFTA)

11- Isle of Dogs  (DC, TOR, SD, Boston, DFW, HOU, NT, PHX, SAT, SE, NV)

3- Incredibles 2  (NBR, PHI, IA)

1- Mirai  (FL, Annie)

1- Another Day of Life (EFA)

1- The Wolf House  (NM)


BEST ANIMATED SHORT FILM

OSCAR REACTION: Pixar doesn’t always win here the way they win in the feature category, but the popular one beat the obscure ones on a night where popularity wins. I can’t say I’m surprised. This was a really good field this year. Do yourself a favor and find these little gems on Vimeo or YouTube soon.

WINNERS:  

1- Weekends (Annie)

1- Bao (Oscar)

1- Roughhouse (BAFTA)


BEST LIVE ACTION SHORT

OSCAR REACTION:  I’ve come to the place where I haven’t seen this winner. I’ll correct that soon.

WINNERS:  

1- Skin (Oscar)

1- Matria  (Sundance)

1- 73 Cows (BAFTA)

1- The Years (EFA)

1- Three Centimetres (London)


BEST DOCUMENTARY FEATURE

OSCAR REACTION : With Fred Rogers on the sidelines, category could have went many directions, but the big screen wonder was the winner. Kudos to my Feelin’ Film guy Aaron White who has now interviewed an Oscar winner!

WINNERS:  

31- Won’t You Be My Neighbor?  (ATL, SF, DC, TOR, PHI, BO, Boston, DFW, IN, KC, NYO, STL, UT, HOU, LAO, NM, NT, NC, OK, Online, PCC, PHX, SE, NV, IA, DEN, EDA, GA, GAL, OFTA, Spirit)

2- RBG  (NBR, WC)

2- Quincy  (AA, BF)

1- Faces Places (London)

1- Bergman: A Year in the Life (EFA)

1- So Help Me God  (DUB)

1- Kailash  (Sundance)

1- The Sentence  (Sundance)


BEST DOCUMENTARY SHORT SUBJECT

OSCAR REACTION:   At this point in the night, this dartboard category probably gave the most raucous winner’s speech of the night.

WINNERS:  

1- Period. End of Sentence (Oscar)

1- My Dead Dad’s Porno Tapes (EYE)

1- Zion (IDA)


BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM

OSCAR REACTION:  Could wealth had been spread? Probably. Was it going to happen? Nope. Roma has been dominant and won where it was supposed to. Great to see this first Oscar win in this category for the country of Mexico.

WINNERS:  

37- Roma  (ATL, Chicago, SF, DC, PHI, WC, SEA, BO, DFW, IN, KC, STL, VAN, UT, NSFC, HOU, GW, BF, LAO, NT, OK, Online, PCC, PHX, SAT, SE, Globe, CC, DEN, EDA, GA, GAL, CIFCC, BAFTA, OFTA, Spirit, Oscar)

4- Cold War  (NY, NYO, EFA, London)

4- Burning  (LA, TOR, GW, NM)

1- Butterflies  (Sundance)

1- The Guilty  (Sundance)


BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY

OSCAR REACTION:  It may not have been the most creative or whizzing work, but it was the best and deepest. Cuaron makes history as the first director to ever win a Cinematographer Oscar for shooting his own film.

WINNERS:  

31- Alfonso Cuaron for Roma  (NY, ATL, Chicago, SF, DC, LA, PHI, SEA, BO, Boston, DFW, NYO, STL, UT, NSFC, HOU, GW, COL, BF, LAO, Online, PHX, SE, NV, CC, EDA, GA, CIFCC, BAFTA, OFTA, Oscar)

OSCAR NOMINEES: Cold War, Robbie Ryan for The Favourite, Caleb Deschanel for Never Look Away, Roma, A Star is Born


BEST PRODUCTION DESIGN/ART DIRECTION

OSCAR REACTION:  Echoing costume design, it’s wonderful to finally see the world-building of a comic book film be recognized on the highest level. Bravo, Black Panther!

WINNERS:  

8- Fiona Crombie for The Favourite  (Chicago, SEA, FL, PHX, NV, GA, CIFCC, ADG, OFTA)

5- Hannah Beachler for Black Panther  (SF, DC, LA, STL, CC, ADG, Oscar)

1- Nelson Coates for Crazy Rich Asians (ADG)

1- Paul Harrod and Adam Stockhausen for Isle of Dogs (ADG)

1- John Myhre and Gordon Sim for Mary Poppins Returns  (SAT)

1- Aaron Haye for Bohemian Rhapsody  (NM)

1- Jum-Hee Shin for Burning  (Cannes)


BEST FILM EDITING

OSCAR REACTION:  The win for Bohemian Rhapsody here was quite the curveball. Like many other places where it won, it’s hard to call this work the best in this field. I am a fan of long-time Bryan Singer collaborator and sometimes film composer John Ottman for the win. Deserving guy!

WINNERS:  

6- Alfonso Cuaron and Adam Gough for Roma  (Chicago, NM, PHX, SAT, EDA, CIFCC)

3- Tom Cross for First Man (DC, Boston, CC)

2- John Ottman for Bohemian Rhapsody (ACE, Oscar)

1- Christopher Tellefsen for A Quiet Place (HP)

1- Joe Walker for Widows  (COL)

1- Joi McMillon and Nat Sanders for If Beale Street Could Talk  (GW)

1- Joshua Altman and Bing Liu for  Minding the Gap  (LA)

1- Bob Murawski and Orson Welles for The Other Side of the Wind  (SF)

1- John Bini for You Were Never Really Here  (BO)


BEST COSTUME DESIGN

OSCAR REACTION:  After years of creative work in their genre and in the entire field, it’s about damn time a comic book film has won a costume Oscar. This was a big and important win!

WINNERS:  

7- Ruth E. Carter for Black Panther  (SEA, Online, CC, CIFCC, CDG, OFTA, Oscar)

4- Sandy Powell for The Favourite  (PHX, SAT, CDG, BAFTA)

1- Mary E. Vogt for Crazy Rich Asians (CDG)


BEST MAKEUP AND HAIR-STYLING

OSCAR BUZZ:  For the second year in a row, the big star transformation wins. This was more about the films that weren’t nominated in the short three-film field.

WINNERS:   

4- Vice (CC, MHG, OFTA, Oscar)

1- The Favourite (OFTA)

1- Black Panther (CIFCC)

1- Crazy Rich Asians (MHG)

1- A Star is Born (MHG)

1- Mary Queen of Scots (MHG)


BEST VISUAL EFFECTS

OSCAR REACTION:   This is great to see more traditional effects and innovative approaches win the top award over straight CGI. This was a great win for First Man and the entire art of visual effects.

WINNERS:

7- Avengers: Infinity War  (STL, LAO, NV, HP, DEN, VES, OFTA)

5- Black Panther  (NC, PHX, SAT, CC, BAFTA)

3- Annihilation  (Chicago, FL, Online)

1- Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (VES)

WINNERS:  

2- A Quiet Place (Online, SAT)

2- Bohemian Rhapsody (BAFTA, Oscar)

1- First Man (OFTA)


BEST SOUND MIXING

OSCAR REACTION:  Echo what was said in Sound Editing. This should have been First Man.

WINNERS:  

3- A Quiet Place (Online, SAT, OFTA)

3- Bohemian Rhapsody (CAS, BAFTA, Oscar)

1- First Man (OFTA)


BEST ORIGINAL SCORE

OSCAR REACTION:  Gosh, I can’t get over the comic book movie love! From John Williams and Danny Elfman to Alan Silvestri and Hans Zimmer, so many comic scores have come and gone and never won. This was a wonderful win for Black Panther and the genre.

WINNERS:  

12- Nicholas Britell for If Beale Street Could Talk  (Chicago, DC, LA, Boston, NYO, COL, LAO, Online, PCC, IA, CIFCC, OFTA)

1- Alexandre Desplat for Isle of Dogs  (DFW)

OSCAR NOMINEES: BlacKkKlansman, Black Panther, If Beale Street Could Talk, Isle of Dogs, Mary Poppins Returns


BEST ORIGINAL SONG

OSCAR REACTION:   You could smell the favoritism for “Shallow” from the beginning of the evening with the endless commercial break teases and extended performance time. But, wow, what a stunner of a performance to match the song. The back-shot duet was the centerpiece of the show. Tingles, feels, and all!

WINNERS:  

11- “Shallow” by Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga for A Star is Born  (LAO, Online, PHX, SAT, Globe, IA, CC, DEN, GA, OFTA, Oscar)

1- “All the Stars” by Kendrick Lamar for Black Panther (AA)

1- “Suspirium “ by Thom Yorke for Suspiria  (NM)
