    WB is gonna try like hell to do just that, and I wish ’em good luck:

    Realistically, the way the Academy ass-f’d The Force Awakens the way they did in 2015, I don’t hold out hope for this. Just gotta wait for the old fogies who hate sci-fi/comic book intelligent blockbusters to go away.

    No, it can’t and it shouldn’t. There are several other genre movies I would rather see be nominated: Logan, Get Out, and Baby Driver.

    Same here. The difference is that while Wonder Woman was a great superhero movie, those other 3 were great movies, period.

    Indeed, a Best Picture nomination for this ain’t happening. It’ll be lucky to garner multiple tech nods.

    Coming soon to The Awards Connection…NICHOLSON AT THE OSCARS!

    Fox is campaigning Logan, and even though it’s a long shot, it has a much better chance than Wonder Woman.

    I liked Spider-Man: Homecoming so much more than Wonder Woman. There was better acting, a better script, and a much better rewatchability factor. But then again this summer has had some of the worst reviewed blockbusters in year but also the best reviewed blockbusters in a decade or more.

    This is easily the best year for Blaockbusters since the year of avatar when there was a ton of blockbusters nominated.

    In a perfect world, this would absolutely be the year for blockbusters to get multiple nods and hopefully wins. Wonder Woman was certainly great as a standalone film and an improvement for the DCEU, but not worthy of any Oscars aside from the obvious ones. These are my hopes as far as nominations go:

    Get Out:
    Best Picture
    Best Director
    Best Original Screenplay
    Best Film Editing

    Logan:
    Best Picture
    Best Actor
    Best Supporting Actor (less likely, but equally deserving and overdue)
    Best Visual Effects

    Wonder Woman:
    Best Sound Editing
    Best Sound Mixing
    Best Costume Design
    Best Visual Effects

    Baby Driver:
    Best Picture
    Best Director
    Best Sound Editing
    Best Sound Mixing
    Best Cinematography
    Best Film Editing

    Spider-Man: Homecoming:
    Best Visual Effects

    War for the Planet of the Apes:
    Best Actor (it’s time)
    Best Original Score
    Best Sound Editing
    Best Sound Mixing
    Best Cinematography
    Best Production Design
    Best Visual Effects

    I don’t particularly see Logan as significantly more likely than Wonder Woman—both would be lucky to get tech nods but I highly doubt Mangold/Jenkins or Jackman/Gadot are going to make much headway–Jackman has The Greatest Showman coming out later that is probably a better bet for him anyway. But I will say that I think Logan and Wonder Woman are the most likely blockbusters, along with War of the Planet of the Apes, to get a few tech nods. Obviously can’t be all three, so more likely each will get one or two nods. Patrick Stewart has a long-shot chance at a Best Supporting Actor nod.

    Get Out on the other hand has a pretty decent chance at Original Screenplay, but not really tech nods. Out of all those mentioned, Get Out is my favorite.

    Oh, without a doubt. Get Out had too many good reviews to not be considered a huge snub if left out. Not to mention most people considered the subject matter timely (personally, I think it was timely last year). It wasn’t really a technically impressive film, anyway, so it probably would only get nods for the big awards.

    Gadot has no chance. She was a great action star, but didn’t do much to show true acting chops like Jennifer Lawrence did in Hunger Games. Jackman had massive range and nuance to his performance, though, as he always has with Wolverine, so the push to award him for his one last hurrah should absolutely pay off for him. I don’t care how good he ends up being in The Greatest Showman, the nod should be for Logan and the fans all know it.

    The same for Picture, but Director has no shot for either. If they wanna award a female director, Kathryn Bigelow is getting good reviews again for Detroit, so the attention’s all gonna get directed towards her. The win’s going to Nolan, anyway, so it doesn’t matter which gets nominated.
