Oscar season is in full swing and now we have a clearer picture of what to expect for next year’s Oscars. Here are the movies we should be looking out for.

If you follow film news in any way, have seen a movie this year, and/or own a Twitter account, you’ll know that right now, the 2019-2020 Oscar season is coming in hot and after the announcement of this year’s Golden Globe nominees, the hype and media talk is reaching a fever pitch.

Much like last year, the narrative surrounding this Oscar season is controversy and hot talking points, with many films being the center of attention for their awards success or the lack of success for other films in this department. The Oscar field is clearing up and the resulting lineup makes for an incredibly intriguing Oscar race this year that is sure to get a strong reaction regardless of who wins.

Just HOW is the Oscar race shaping up, though? Are the potential breakout films truly striking a chord with awards voters or will there be some surprises along the way? It’s truly difficult to predict exactly how things will turn out as the Oscars can sometimes throw some serious curveballs into the mix (for better or worse).

Let’s try to navigate through this difficult terrain to gain a stronger understanding over what to expect come early next year. Remember, as of this writing, the Oscar nomination announcement is still roughly two months away, so the landscape of the Oscar field could change at the flip of a coin. Strong contenders now could practically vanish by January and obscure hopefuls right now could make some serious waves late into the game.

Either way you slice it, there’s a lot to talk about for this year, so let’s hop right in!
