Who's winning the awards season? Here are the 2018 leaders

Overall nominations

In the non-acting categories, it’s still a wide open race. “Shape of Water,” predicted early to be a favorite, leads “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” by a hair. “Get Out” and “Lady Bird” remain audience and critical favorites as well.

Leading actress categories

If someone other than “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” star Frances McDormand wins the Oscar for best actress, it will be the upset of the night.

Supporting actress categories

Allison Janney is a solid favorite for her depiction of Tonya Harding’s mother, LaVona Golden, in “I, Tonya” but Academy voters can surprise in the supporting categories.

Leading actor categories

Actually, if Gary Oldman doesn’t win for his “Darkest Hour” portrayal of Winston Churchill, that would be the upset of the night.

Supporting actor categories

Despite the closeness of these numbers, most are betting on Sam Rockwell for the win. While Willem Dafoe swept the critics awards, Rockwell took the more predictive industry awards. But there is still room for a surprise here.

Director categories

As impossible as it seems, this is Guillermo Del Toro’s first Oscar nomination and he is favored to win. Many feel that Jordan Peele has a better chance in the screenwriting category, but the powerful impact of “Get Out” makes it a potential upset in every category.

Best film categories

As many of the guilds do not give a best picture award, these numbers are not predictive of anything but the many possibilities when the final envelope is opened on Sunday night.
