Let's have an early look at the state of the Oscar® race this year, find out which movies to look out for and watch trailers for the most hopeful contenders.

Like many other aspects of life, the Protected content season looks a bit different than usual. With movie theaters around the world closed, lots of major productions have been postponed to later this year, while others went directly to streaming.

The Academy Awards® have been pushed to April 25, two months later than originally scheduled, and the eligibility period for feature films was extended through February 28, Protected content Dec 31). Nominations will be announced on March 15.

So how can we already tell which titles are going to be nominated? Well, as legendary screenwriter William Goldman put it: Nobody knows anything.

But as the Hollywood Foreign Press, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, and the Screen Actors Guild all announced nominations for their awards last week (Golden Globes®, BAFTAs® and SAG Awards®), we got some clues.

I'll give a short overview of the nominations so far. We will check which films are already available for streaming, followed by a trailer show for these titles, and finally have a look at the movies to look forward to, again followed by a trailer show.
