Summary: The Awardist, from Entertainment Weekly, takes you inside this year’s best contenders for the industry’s biggest awards, from the Golden Globes to the Oscars. Join EW editors as they talk about the actors, films and TV series that should win – and which of those actually will win – and why.
EW’s Shana Naomi Krochmal, Piya Sinha-Roy and Bill Keith break down the very end of a very long awards season following the 2019 Oscars. From ‘Green Book’ to ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ Olivia Colman to Rami Malek, this year’s Academy Awards winners were…all over the map. Will this be the year that we look back on as a genuine turning point for diversity in front of and behind the camera? Will Academy voters ever fully embrace movies that challenge where and how they watch a film – streaming – let alone make them uncomfortable? And, like everyone else with eyes, we ask: What in the world was going on with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper during that ‘Shallow’ performance?
EW’s Shana Naomi Krochmal, Piya Sinha-Roy and Bill Keith talk through all the telecast drama before the Academy Awards, make one final set of bold predictions for what will happen and who will win, and take a look back at the people who get the very last word that night: the producers who accept for Best Picture. From Brad Pitt to Ben Affleck – to a bunch of guys you’ve probably never heard of – that ultimate acceptance speech is often the most chaotic. Plus: Piya talks to ‘Roma’ producer and Alfonso Cuaron whisperer Gabriela Rodriguez, and EW’s Anthony Breznican asks Marvel president Kevin Feige who will get the mic if ‘Black Panther’ wins.
Turner Classic Movie host Ben Mankiewicz joins EW’s Shana Naomi Krochmal and Piya Sinha-Roy to definitively determine how an Academy Award-winning movie – or a losing one, or one that never even makes the nominations cut – might eventually become a time-honored, widely respected, and beloved classic film. Plus, we discuss who oddsmakers are predicting will win the big Oscars categories, how many awards shows Alfonso Curaon attend in one week, what cinematographers find funny, and whether rom-coms will ever get the respect they deserve. Piya also chats with director Pawel Pawlikowski about his beautiful black-and-white film, ‘Cold War.’

It’s November and awards season is well underway.
In the final episode of the season, Henry, Lynette, and Kristen break down the nominees for the various Reality Competition and Variety Series categories. With The Amazing Race being nominated all 16 times, what are the chances it'll lose it's streak? (Also, why hasn't The Bachelor ever been nominated?!) And since Jeff Probst was snubbed, this may be RuPaul's year to win Best Host for Drag Race.
