The Awards Circuit section of Variety is the go-to source for all awards-related news and content, which includes official predictions for upcoming ceremonies such as the Oscars, Emmys, Grammys, and Tonys. These predictions are curated by Clayton Davis, Variety’s senior awards editor, and are based on his assessment of the current standings of the race, rather than his personal preferences for any film or performance. It’s important to note that like any voting organization or body, each category is subject to change, and the predictions are updated every Thursday to reflect the latest developments.

With wins at the DGA, PGA, SAG, and WGA, “Everything Everywhere” appears to be the frontrunner for the upcoming awards ceremony. However, if you’re anticipating a surprise upset, you’ll need to provide compelling evidence to support your prediction, such as “All Quiet on the Western Front” dominating the categories or “The Banshees of Inisherin” securing two acting awards, the screenplay, and the score. Although some voters may not be in favor of “Everything Everywhere,” if an upset is in the works, “Top Gun: Maverick” could be the dark horse. Pay attention to the visual effects (and potentially the original song) during the event as a possible indication of this happening.
Will Win: “Everything Everywhere All at Once” (A24) – Daniel Kwan, Daniel Scheinert, Jonathan Wang
Could Win: “Top Gun: Maverick” (Paramount Pictures) – Tom Cruise, Christopher McQuarrie, David Ellison, Jerry Bruckheimer
Should Win: “Tár” (Focus Features) – Todd Field, Scott Lambert, Alexandra Milchan
Should have been here: “Close” (A24) — Michiel Dhont, Dirk Impens
