Picking the Oscar Nominees Based on Current Award Totals

Picking the Oscar Nominees Based on Current Award Totals

This awards season has been unlike any other. Not only was the seasoned lengthened two months, lack of in person attendance has forced some studios to take a different approach towards their campaigns. Nonetheless, the awards season has rolled along and is entering the final stretch. And after a long circuit here is what the Oscar nominees would be based on total Wins and Nominations during this awards run.

I stopped updating Wins/Nominations on Wednesday, March 10. Anything after won’t be added.

Stats were pulled from reddit user u/BentisKomprakriev‘s score chart. You can find the full score chart here.
