    Wonder Woman over Mudbound, Phantom Thread, and others is the big surprise. Otherwise, it looks like the lineup is shaping up.

    Not that much of a surprise. Phantom Thread is there pretty much because this is Daniel Day-Lewis’ retirement performance. Mudbound…the Netflix curse.

    I am very happy with the list sans wonder woman. That film is severely overrated. Also, very suprised but overjoyed for dunkirk to be included in this list, I thought it was ineligible.

    I think it’s pretty clear now what the bp nominees are now

    Yes. That is what he said

    Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.

    Wonder Woman

    Over Mudbound and even something getting rave reviews like Phantom Thread? What a joke. If you want to nominate a blockbuster, nominate Logan, War for the Planet of the Apes, or Blade Runner 2049.

    Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.

    Wonder Woman ALSO got rave reviews… although I too would have preferred to see Logan make the cut. Heck, why not nominate Baby Driver instead? That movie needs all the support it can get. Coco would definitely be considered a “blockbuster,” Zootopia made the cut last year, and I enjoyed Coco WAAAAYYY more than Zootopia. For me it isn’t that Wonder Woman is undeserving, I will defend its inclusion on AFI infinitely more than a pile of messy garbage like Three Billboards. Wonder Woman was at least solidly scripted and well-acted, which is more than you can say for Three Billboards. You can leave in Wonder Woman, take out Dunkirk (aka soulless generic well-crafted WWII movie 101), The Florida Project (a decent but not masterful or even very memorable film), and Three Billboards (F**k this thing!) and replace them with Logan, Coco, and Baby Driver, and I seriously doubt MOST people would have complained, save for the Nolan stans and the couple Florida Project stans that are out there.

    Keep in mind only 7/10 AFI Awards Top 10 Films received BP Oscar nominations earlier this year. The 2 years before that it was only 6/10. The year before those (“12 Years a Slave” year) it went 7/10 again.

    Yes, I know the Oscars have had only 8 or 9 BP nominees in those years, just be sure to take these nominees with a grain of salt as Oscar predictors, that’s all.

    Like the National Board of Review, it’s not a perfect predictor but I can’t think of a movie that made AFI, National Board of Review & Critics Choice that got a Best Picture snub.

    Films that made all three:
    Call Me By Your Name
    Dunkirk
    Florida Project
    Get Out
    Lady Bird
    The Post

    Not really, 76 on Metacritic. Same as Guardians of the Galaxy and Civil War, and it was even 2 points less than Iron Man. It was well liked (like most MCU films) but not acclaimed.

    And while I hate to sound like a braindead Trump supporter, lets not pretend like it would still be in there if it was about a male superhero with a male director.

    Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.

    While I’m not crazy about either of them, Wonder Woman is way better than Dunkirk.

    And going further back in era of expanded lineups: Nightcrawler, Unbroken, Inside Llewyn Davis, Saving Mr Banks, The Town. It’s not that uncommon, but neither is a year where none of them miss. I’d think The Florida Project is the only one in danger, but ultimately has the passion.
