2018 Oscars calendar updated: AFI announces winners today

Last week, the New York and Los Angeles film critics weighed in with their picks for the best pics of the year. On Thursday (Dec. 7), the American Film Institute is set to release its list of the top 10 homegrown films of 2017. This early attention shines the spotlight on many leading contenders before the guilds reveal their choices. Voting is already under way for the DGA, PGA and SAG Awards nominations.

The 90th annual Academy Awards take place on Sunday, March 4, 2018. Prior to the Jan. 12 deadline for Oscar nomination ballots, the Critics’ Choice Awards and Golden Globes will have taken place. The BAFTA Awards will have announced nominations as will the actors, directors, producers and writers guilds. And the major critics groups already will have weighed in with their top picks too.
