****When We All Fall Asleep Where Do We Go? **** In classic Grammy fashion - always a year late to everything - Billie Eilish's breakout 2018 will be rewarded with an array of awards in February 2020. Unlike most StarDraft celebs, Eilish will only earn points for noms and wins at the Grammys. Any nom in the following categories will earn Eilish 3 points: Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Best New Artist. Wins in those categories will earn her 6 points a pop. Lesser known categories like Best Pop Solo Album, Best Pop Vocal Album will get her 2 points for a nom, 3 points for a win.

POINTS
**** 'Big Little Lies,' 'Marriage Story,' 'Little Women' **** She will not not be rich. And Laura Dern will not not be recognized for her work this year. Her work in Noah Baumbach's Netflix drama 'Marriage Story' is already drawing rave reviews and she did her darnedest to out-act Streep in 'Big Little Lies' this season. StarDraft is all about celebs with cross-medium appeal and Dern fits the bill this year with potential points for TV AND film work. She'll earn 1 point any time BLL or Marriage Story OR even Little Women gets nominated, 3 points if either win an award. For the individual categories, she'll receive 2 StarDraft points for noms and 5 points for wins (except if she wins a Best Supporting Oscar...she'll get 6 for that)

**** 'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood,' 'Ad Astra' **** Hello old friend. Brad Pitt has made about every kind of movie - sports movies (Moneyball), zombie movies (World War Z), and this year, he was sent to space in Ad Astra and back in time during Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. The reviews for both films have been out-of-this-world, but expect the StarDraft points to come from the Quentin Tarantino's flick. Hollywood voters love movies about Hollywood! Remember Pitt will get 1 point anytime one of his films is nominated for a Golden Globe, Critics Choice Award, SAG, or Oscar. 3 if the film wins. He'll score more points if he earns an individual nomination - 2 points for noms and 5-6 points for wins.

**** 'Joker' **** It became one of the most talked about films of the fall, even before it was released. Critics have said that if it weren't called 'Joker' you wouldn't know its a DC movie. But its studio, Warner Brothers, will definitely be treating it as an Oscar movie. And Joaquin Phoenix will be a contender for Best Actor. His quest begins with the Golden Globes - he'll score 1 point if the movie gets a nom, 2 points if he does. And if they both win - it'll be 7 StarDraft points for him (2 for anyone in the movie, 5 for Phoenix).

*** Cuz I Love You, 'Hustlers' **** Although she's been producing music for almost a decade, the industry has finally 'discovered' Lizzo. The R&B performer's earned some Teen Choice noms, MTV Video Music noms, and expect some Grammy noms this winter. Each nom will get her either 2-3 points (depending on the category). Wins at February's Awards Show will net her 5-6 StarDraft points a piece. Grammy Awards Nominations are announced on Wed, November 20th. Also if 'Hustlers' earns a Best Comedy nom at the Golden Globes, Lizzo would earn a point there as well.

She's in a Netflix series, 'What If,' which won't get that much play this Awards Season. But her portrayal as a washed-up Judy Garland in the biopic 'Judy,' is getting some notice. There's no place like....the red carpet?

She slayed Julia Louis-Dreyfus to win Best Actress in a Comedy for her brilliant role in Amazon's 'Fleabag.' Expect some similar love at the Golden Globes in January. And as the showrunner of Killing Eve, she may pick up additional StarDraft points for that as well.

Last year, Colman scored an impressive 30 StarDraft points for portraying the crazy cuckolding 18th century queen in 'The Favourite.' And this year, she'll definitely secure attention for playing a different queen on the small screen: Queen Elizabeth II in Netflix's 'The Crown.' She takes the role over from another perennial StarDraft fave Claire Foy. She also may score a couple smaller noms for her work on the second season of Amazon's 'Fleabag.'

**** "Marriage Story," "JoJo Rabbit," "Avengers: Endgame" **** Onetime indie darling (what up Lost In Translation!) Scarlett Johansson is returning to her roots this Awards Season. She stars in two of the most acclaimed films to come out of the Toronto Film Festival - Noah Baumbach's Netflix-drama 'Marriage Story' and Taika Waititi's coming-of-age story of a boy who has Adolf Hitler as an imaginary friend, 'JoJo Rabbit.' Yes, you read that correctly. 'JoJo Rabbit' won the festival's People's Choice Award, which is a great predictor for Oscar success - 9 of the last 10 winners have gone on to score a Best Picture nomination. In StarDraft, every nom and award is pointed differently - but anytime an actor or their movie earns a nom it's either 1 or 2 StarDraft points. Anytime they win it's between 3 and 6 points. So if ScarJo's movies do well AND she scores some acting noms, she'll be the surest bet this fall.

In the mini-series, Williams' Verdon must deal with her pill-addicted, creative husband Bob Fosse (played by Sam Rockwell). Surely plenty of Golden Globes voters were notice the real life similarities to her real life relationship with the late Heath Ledger. Williams will be eligible for StarDraft points in the upcoming TV awards: Golden Globes, SAG Awards, and Critics' Choice.

**** 'The Irishman,' 'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood' **** Hooah! Pacino now finds himself in arguably the biggest two films of the year. While OUATIH is unlikely to earn him an individual award, his performance as Jimmy Hoffa in 'The Irishman' has him as a contender for Best Supporting Actor in this year's award shows. Any StarDraft veteran knows the impact a sure-thing Best Supporting Acting run can have on a season. Mahershala Ali swept everything last year for 'Green Book' - netting 46 points. Could Pacino do the same thing this year?

Only one question remains: will Grammy voters reward Lil Nas for his HUGE year? A Grammy nom is worth 3 points in most categories and a win will net Lil Nas X between 3 and 6.

Stellan will most likely come away with a few more StarDraft points this season. If the disaster drama wins Best Limited Series at the Globes he'll take home 3 StarDraft points.

Robbie also appears in the "Bombshell" as a composite character in the tale of Roger Ailes's demise. Being in these highly rated movies is bound to make her a valuable pick up this year.

He's also eligible for his role as Bob Fosse in FX's 'Fosse/Verdon.' Expect a lot of attention for these projects, as well as the latebreaking Clint Eastwood flick, 'Richard Jewell.'

A boy growing up in Nazi Germany has an imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler. Waititi directed the film and stars at Hitler. The film got rave reviews at the Toronto Film Festival, but could also suffer some backlash leading up to awards season. If Waititi can become the frontrunner in the Best Supporting Acting category, it will be raining StarDraft points. Every time he earns a nom or win, it'll be 2 or 5 points.

De Niro had to be digitally de-aged for the era-spanning epic. Expect Netflix to make a huge awards push with this film. Bobby D also has a small part in 'Joker' - playing an homage to his 1982 classic, 'The King of Comedy.' So he may pick up some StarDraft points for that film's noms as well. Any time either film gets a nom, that's 1 StarDraft point. If they win, it's 3. If De Niro scores an individual nom for his de-aged performance in 'The Irishman' he'll score 2 points.

Menzies is best known as hapless Edmure Tully in 'Game of Thrones.' TBD if his potrayal of Prince Phillip will be much different. Also he'll be eligible for GoT points. Any time that show is nominated, he gets a point. Any time it wins, he'll score 5.

**** 'On Becoming a God in Central Florida' **** Kirsten Dunst is having a bit of a comeback. If you haven't seen Showtime's 'On Becoming God in Central Florida' do yourself a favor a bask in the glory of Dunst's performance. It'd be a sin if she weren't nominated for a Golden Globe (and that would be 2 StarDraft points!)

**** 'Veep' **** Hell hath no fury like a JLD scorned. Julia Louis-Dreyfus was upset at the Emmys in the Best Actress category by Phoebe Waller-Bridge. It was JLD's last season on Veep, she overcame cancer, and she was up for an Emmy record. But she lost. Now, she'll be fighting for accolades at the Golden Globes and Critics Choice - it's possible voters may make the Emmy embarrassment up to her. A Golden Globe nom will net her 2 point, a win will get her 5.

Jonah Hill would like to be taken seriously. And in 2018, his roles were certainly that. He co-starred in a Gus Van Sant film, wrote & directed his own indie, and starred across Emma Stone in the trippy Netflix limited series, 'Maniac.' Expect a big PR push this winter for his dramatic coming out party.
