'A Star Is Born'
Director: Bradley Cooper
Starring: Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper, Sam Elliott, Andrew Dice Clay, Dave Chappelle
Release date: October 5, 2018

In contention for: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor (Cooper), Best Actress (Gaga), Best Supporting Actor (Elliott)

Early returns on the new remake are laudatory to say the least. In addition to being a surefire Best Picture bet, the fourth Hollywood version of A Star Is Born seems locked into the lead acting categories as well. There's one thing, above all, that matters in the romance genre: chemistry. One only needs to watch the trailer to see Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga have it. People are going to love this movie.
