Alternate Prediction (c-First Chart Placement)

CHANCE AT NOMINATION:
Lock: It would be a major shock if these selections weren’t nominated. The buzz would be deafening.
Near Lock: These are selections that I think are pretty certain, but I cannot quite declare them as guarantees.
Likely: There isn’t much of a chance that this nominee will be left off the list, but stranger things have happened.
Toss Up: These are the achievements that I think are fighting for the slots not taken up by the others above. None of these selections are safe and could be bumped off by any other title with the “Doubtful” description.
Doubtful: These are outside contenders that have been in the conversation, but whose prospects have dimmed over time. They remain on the list because sometimes the Academy does some strange stuff.
Poor: A contender whose chances at nominations aren’t particularly strong.
Long: The chances of these being nominatd are extremely unlikely.
