It’s never too early to talk about next year’s Oscar race, right? Okay maybe it is, but while we’re all on the subject, let’s go ahead and take a way-too-early look at the films that might be dominating next year’s awards season. This is an annual tradition here on Collider, and some years my list turns out to be pretty spot on, while others it’s a big swing and a miss—I only had three of this year’s eventual Best Picture nominees on my list last year.
But there’s a lot to look forward to in 2019, and some big films from heavy hitters (and Oscar favorites) like Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, and Danny Boyle, as well as new films from a pair of young filmmakers who burst onto the Oscar scene recently: Greta Gerwig and Jordan Peele. So without further ado, let’s run down 12 films that may be in next year’s Oscar race.
