    Disappointed It didn’t make the short list. Happy for I, Tonya! As much as I love that movie, I think the Academy will put in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 instead. They nominated the first one and they usually have one sci-fi/fantasy movie in there.

    I think the bake off system works against here, there wasn’t anything massively new so their presentation maybe end being “we did what we did in the first film again”. Bright however is genre, showy and brand new, that’s the bigger threat imo.

    Makes sense @sagand. I’m looking forward to watching Bright on Netflix.

    1. Darkest Hour

    2. Wonder

    3. I, Tonya

    Alt – Bright

    It would be funny if Bright were to be the movie for Netflix to break through at the Oscars instead of Mudbound.

    Well, you do have Ayesha and the Sovereigns, and Taserface and some new Ravagers in GOTG2. That may be enough to mix up the presentation a little (certainly worked for the latest Star Trek). But BRIGHT does hold promise, and Will Smith may be a lucky charm after last year’s winner.

    But with SHAPE out, it’s really hard to imagine anyone but DARKEST HOUR winning, especially if it’s a coattail beneficiary via Gary Oldman (ala Streep, McConaughey, Landau, Tandy, Abraham).

    Well at least now we know The Shape of Water won’t be getting 15 nominations.

    I had Wonder and Darkest Hour predicted for so long the third one was Beauty and the Beast for me but now I have I, Tonya.

    Surprised Victoria & Abdul advanced here.

    Shocked that “The Shape of Water” couldn’t make the cut here.

    The power of a Dame! Sleep on La Dench all you like lol.

    Agreed that the likely three are Darkest Hour, I, Tonya and Wonder. I’d keep an eye on Victoria & Abdul, though. (Keep in mind, Mrs. Brown was a Makeup nominee.)

    First Visual Effects, then Song, and now Makeup and Hairstyling. Every new press release kicks another Wonder Woman nomination possibility out of the competition.

    And I had forgotten that I had left All The Money In The World in as a predicted nominee before Spacey was cut out. I guess there wasn’t much left of note after that!

    I told you guys multiple times to put Bright into the prediction centre in Makeup, but you didn’t listen…

    The last time the Makeup nomination slate was missing a sci-fi/fantasy/genre movie was 1998, and those were 3 Best Picture nominees. There almost certainly will be one this year, which makes WONDER the most vulnerable (since I’m guessing they’re putting all their eggs in one character’s basket in that film), and BRIGHT or GOTG2 the most conspicuous contenders.

    To the person who said Will Smith is a good luck charm at the Oscars I think your on to something. MIB won Make-up, SS won Make-Up, Independence Day won Best Visuals, and I, Robot has gotten a visual effects nod. So, you might not be wrong
