We are now in the home stretch of one of the tightest Oscar races in years. The incendiary drama Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and the intoxicating, fishy fantasy The Shape of Water are both compelling choices to win the big prize at the Oscars 2018. But how should we predict who will win? In this video, I dive in to the maths, the science and the precedents that could give us a clue as to who will leave the Dolby Theater victorious. Of course, I also manage to compare the ebb and flow of this awards season to a professional wrestling match.
The Oscars are this Sunday evening and we will be covering every red carpet look, crazy acceptance speech and envelope-based snafu live throughout the night. In the meantime, take a look at my final Best Picture power rankings and the Big Best Picture Row, in which a team of guest writers argue in favour of each of the Best Picture nominees.
