We’re predicting that seven of the nine Best Picture nominees will take home at least one Oscar. Three of these contenders are expected to claim three apiece. Seven-time nominee “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” will win Best Picture as well as Oscars for leading lady Frances McDormand and featured player Sam Rockwell. “The Shape of Water,” which leads with 13 bids, will take home Best Director (Guillermo Del Toro), Best Production Design and Best Score. And “Dunkirk” will go three for eight, claiming Best Film Editing, Best Sound Mixing and Best Sound Editing.
One of the other nominees, “Darkest Hour,” will win two of its six bids for leading man Gary Oldman and the team that transformed him into Winston Churchill. Another six-time contender, “Phantom Thread,” will have to settle for just the Best Costume Design Oscar.
The breakout hit “Get Out” is forecast to go one for four, with first-time filmmaker Jordan Peele winning for his original script. And veteran director James Ivory will make Oscar history as the oldest winner if he wins as expected for his adapted screenplay for “Call Me By Your Name,” which has four nominations in total.
The other two Best Picture hopefuls — five-time nominee “Lady Bird” and two-time contender “The Post” — will leave the Dolby theater empty-handed.
Our official odds are based on a combination of five sets of predictions: the predictions of film Experts, Gold Derby Editors who cover awards year-round, the Top 24 Users who got the top scores predicting last year’s Oscar winners, the All-Star Top 24 who got the highest scores when you combine the last two years’ Oscar results, and hundreds of total Users who make up the largest (and often savviest) bloc of predictors.

What to expect on Oscars night
The red carpet at the Oscars is always a source of glamour and sometimes drama. This year, controversy is buzzing about E!’s red carpet coverage with Ryan Seacrest. The “American Idol” and daytime TV host was recently accused of sexual misconduct by a former employee; he denies the charges and an E! investigation found “insufficient evidence to substantiate” the allegations. Jennifer Lawrence has already expressed that she is not sure if she will pause to talk with Seacrest on the red carpet.
The #MeToo and Time’s Up movements are expected to have a big presence at the Oscars, potentially creating some “awkwardness” around Hollywood’s biggest night, but unlike the recent Golden Globes, there is no organized effort to have attendeesas a sign of protest.
Who’s presenting awards at the Oscars 2018 Awards?
The list of presenters for the Academy Awards Sunday is a diverse group that includes “Black Panther” star Chadwick Boseman, “Girls Trip” breakout star Tiffany Haddish, “Lady Bird” writer/director Greta Gerwig and “The Big Sick” co-writer and star Kumail Nanjiani.
Casey Affleck, last year’s winner for Best Actor, has bowed out of presenting after sexual harassment allegations resurfaced after he won last year.
How can I watch the Oscars 2018 red carpet and pre-shows?
