"And the Oscar for Best Picture goes to…" Well, it’s far too early to say with any certainty, isn’t it, but the conversation has to begin right about now.

Welcome, all, to the return of Awards Blend, CinemaBlend’s weekly conversation surrounding all things Oscar. The season officially is underway, launching each year as the triumphant trio of September film festivals – Venice, Telluride and Toronto – kick-start a bevy of campaigns that will position films, performers and behind-the-scenes talents for potential Oscar glory. The awards conversations will only heat up as we move into the meat of the New York Film Festival schedule. And Awards Blend will be your weekly one-stop shop for the latest angles on the upcoming Oscar movies (as well as a few worthy films that opened earlier this year that we will fight to put back on your radar).  

Recognizing that it’s still ridiculously early in the season to make any bold predictions, we have to start somewhere. Expect these charts to shift radically as the season progresses, with movies rising and falling as they are screened for wider audiences. But fortune favors the brave, so these – as of September 28 (!!) – are my candidates for the top Oscar categories. Tell me where I’m right (and wrong) in the comments section below.
