  1. Bradley Laing says:

    —is there a possibility that the animated short film “Le Mans 1955” will be nominated.

  2. Terry says:

    Please excuse my ignorance, but what does ‘Underdogs 2019’ represent?

  3. Ray Pride says:

    The Gurus predict what the Academy would do. The “underdogs” are personal preferences that are unlikely to make the cut on Monday.
