    What is your favorite current Best Picture frontrunner (something that is listed in the top 25 in the prediction center)? Least favorite? Still need to see but really want to? (Pick one for each category.)

    I’ll start:

    Favorite: Lady Bird
    Least Favorite: 3 Billboards
    Excited to See: Phantom Thread

    Least Favorite: Get Out – Just watched this over the weekend.
    Interesting, but not much of a fan of the horror genre.

    Excited to See: Call Me By Your Name but looking forward to seeing Three Billboards this weekend when it opens here.

    Favorite: Get Out (NOW I know why you all are underestimating it like crazy! You don’t want it to win! Honestly, I’ve been there with Moonlight last year and even then I didn’t let my feelings cloud my predictions long enough so that I would not be able to see it winning Best Picture at the Oscars. Same thing happened earlier this year with Big Little Lies at the Emmys, where even though I thought it was vastly inferior to The Night Of on every level, by the time the Emmys rolled around I had switched to BLL as the correct Limited Series winner. Like me with Moonlight and BLL, hopefully you all will come around to realize that no matter what you may think of Get Out, it is certainly the obvious one-to-beat for Best Picture. No hard feelings, I get it.) 🙂

    Least favorite: The Florida Project (It still wasn’t awful, just mediocre, although I don’t think Willem Dafoe does anything to merit any kind of awards, let alone an Oscar.)

    Excited to see: The Shape of Water (LOVE DEL TORO!)

    I haven’t seen many of these, but…
    Favorite: The Big Sick. But it’s not good. It’s the one that bothers me the least.
    Least favorite: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. This movie is SO bad, it actually pisses me off how bad it is that I can’t pick Dunkirk as my least favorite.
    Excited to see: Phantom Thread, because PTA. Also excited for The Florida Project because I just admire Sean Baker so much.

    What was bad about 3 Billboards? I know you’ve said you don’t think Frances is awards worthy at all.
