    Whew, all five of my predictions made it this year. I remember last year that wasn’t the case and I had to change my predictions!

    Thor Ragnarok should win this, but they’ll go with Shape of Water

    I was predicting Only the Brave to be this years Deepwater Horizon but it didn’t even make the shortlist.

    Many people will be relieved that Transformers: The Last Knight is NOT on this list.

    Blade Runner, The Shape of Water, Star Wars and War for the Planet of the Apes, with Dunkirk, Logan, Thor and Wonder Woman playing jump ball for that last slot.

    No surprises.

    I think Beauty and the Beast and Dunkirk are very strong possibilities.

    Proving that it isn’t about MOST Visual Effects, it is about BEST Visual Effects. 🙂

    Blade Runner 2049 is still winning this no matter what. It appears to be one of the biggest locks of the entire Oscar year in my opinion.

    Meh, that is nothing that we have not seen before in a hundred space/comic book movies. Looks pretty animated actually.
