Oscar nomination predictions

The Academy Award nominations will be announced Tuesday morning. As I usually like to do, I'm throw out my predictions in the acting categories. Sadly, I don't think Emily Blunt is going to make the cut for her titular role in Mary Poppins Returns.

Actress in a Leading Role
Yalitza Aparicio (Roma)
Glenn Close (The Wife)--lock
Olivia Colman (The Favourite)--lock
Lady Gaga (A Star is Born)--lock
Melissa McCarthy (Can You Ever Forgive Me?)

Actor in a Leading Role
Christian Bale (Vice)--lock
Bradley Cooper (A Star is Born)--lock
Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody)--lock
Viggo Mortensen (Green Book)
John David Washington (BlacKkKlansman)

alt: Ethan Hawke (First Reformed)

Actress in a Supporting Role
Amy Adams (Vice)--lock
Claire Foy (First Man)
Regina King (If Beale Street Could Talk)--lock
Emma Stone (The Favourite)--lock
Rachel Weisz (The Favourite)--lock

Actor in a Supporting Role
Mahershala Ali (Green Book)--lock
Timothée Chalamet (Beautiful Boy)
Adam Driver (BlacKkKlansman)
Sam Elliot (A Star is Born)
Richard E. Grant (Can You Ever Forgive Me?)--lock

I think Mary Poppins Returns may sneak in a couple tech categories like production design or costumes. Should Blunt sneak in and the film itself into Best Picture, it would be a boon for continued box office success, as well as future digital sales.
