Gold Derby - GoldDerby: Oscars Predictions

"The good news for every studio and every network is that 'Veep' is not back," announces Marcus James Dixon at the start of our discussion about Best Comedy Series at the 2018 Emmys. "Veep" is the reigning three-time winner of the top comedy prize, but it's taking the year off so it won't be eligible to four-peat. Marcus is joined by fellow Gold Derby editors Paul Sheehan, Chris Beachum, Daniel Montgomery and Joyce Eng in our latest slugfest video.

With so many new dramas clamoring for Emmy's attention, this year's Best Drama Series race is dividing Gold Derby's editors. Two recent winners are back in play -- "Game of Thrones" and "The Handmaid's Tale" -- as are last year's nominees "The Crown," "Stranger Things," "This Is Us" and "Westworld." But with "Better Call Saul" and "House of Cards" both taking the year off, which freshman series are in contention at the 2018 Emmys?

Gold Derby's editors are still picking our jaws off the floor after Sunday's Oscars ceremony, in which Guillermo del Toro's "The Shape of Water" took down Martin McDonagh's "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri." Tom O'Neil, Paul Sheehan, Chris Beachum, Marcus James Dixon, Daniel Montgomery and Joyce Eng analyze the winners and losers and critique the show in our morning-after slugfest.

Mike Hogan (Vanity Fair), Chris Rosen (EW) and Tom O'Neil (Gold Derby) battle over 2018 Oscar frontrunners. Will "The Shape of Water," "Get Out," "Lady Bird," "Dunkirk" or "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" win Best Picture?

Oscars 2018 predictions slugfest: ESPN's Adnan Virk vs. Gold Derby's Tom O'Neil and Chris Beachum. Adnan joined our Gold Derby Experts just over a year ago and has proven to be one of most accurate predictors for both film and television. He hosts that company's Cinephile podcast, discussing his take on the latest movies and awards. Weeks ago he thought "Lady Bird" would be the Best Picture winner this year since it should rank high on most ballots and isn't divisive. But with recent victories at BAFTA and especially SAG Awards, Adnan has switched over to "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri" for the top category at the 2018 Oscars ceremony on March 4.

Gold Derby's notoriously snarky Oscar Experts Tom O'Neil and Tariq Khan dish why they're picking "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" to win Best Picture. Tariq recently dropped "The Shape of Water." Why?
