    Actor –
    I haven’t seen a whole lot of these but for sake of the convo I would say my fav would have to be Javier in Mother! and Kumal from the Big Sick , my least favorite is Daniel from get out. Im excited to see CMBYN, The Post and Stronger.. I have zero desire to see Phantom Thread or Darkest Hour

    Actress
    My favorite would be Jennifer in Mother!, Gal in Wonder Woman and Nicole Kidman in the Beguiled. I don’t really have anyone i dislike at the moment. Excited to see Shape of Water, 3 billboards and i,Tonya.

    Lead Actress: Frances McDormand leads the way by a longshot. I absolutely loved her in TBOEM and I struggle to fathom how she can be this good in everything she does.

    Lead Actor: Still gotta say Hugh Jackman in Logan.

    Supporting Actress: Laurie Metcalf in Lady Bird and Tilda Swinton in Okja. Metcalf always impresses me, and Swinton’s role in Okja is very different from her other performances. Swinton really sinks into the role here.

    Supporting Actor: Willem Dafoe was the best part of TFP. But I do want to give a shoutout to Luke Evans, the MVP of the Beauty and the Beast remake.

    Actress: Frances McDormand (3 Billboards) –> one of the best performances of the decade

    Saoirse Ronan and JLaw are next in line, with Hawkins in fourth.

    Actor: Jeremy Renner (Wind River)
    Dreadful category. Gary Oldman might be #2, but I’m not passionate about it.

    Supporting Actor: Simon Russell Beale (The Death of Stalin)
    The 3B guys are great too.

    Supporting Actress: Laurie Metcalf (Lady Bird) Very far ahead of the rest.
    Still need to see I, Tonya.

    Movies I’ve yet to see: CMBYN, I, Tonya, Molly’s Game, Battle of the Sexes, Stronger, Breathe, The Disaster Artist, A Fantastic Woman

    I’ve seen almost everything there is to see in contention so far.

    Actor: Oldman – BY A MILE!

    Actress: McDormand/Robbie – Both sensational.

    S Actor: Rockwell

    S Actress: Janney

    So basically all the favourites. I’d be very happy if everything goes to the formbook this year.

    It’s a big year for Hawkins as well. Maudie? The Shape of Water? We can even blend Paddington 2 as well. Unfortunately, her underrated status and Shape of Water’s genre might affect her Oscar chances since everyone’s pointing at Mcdormand now.

    I saw “The Shape Of Water” and really liked it. It’s easily a contender for a nomination for a bunch of major categories: Picture, Director, Actress, Supporting Actor (Jenkins), and Supporting Actress (Spencer, although this is totally within her usual wheelhouse). I’m just shocked on this site that odds have it so high in various categories. It’s not going to win any major categories, and certainly won’t be close to a nomination leader. I doubt the movie does that well at the box office.
    People are thinking Hawkins will give McDormand a run for her money? No way. The nomination will be Hawkins reward.
    Ronan is McDormand’s threat.
