    It could theoretically hurt its chances of winning Original Screenplay, but Get Out and 3BB are frontrunners to win it anyway.

    This never had a prayer in Original Screenplay anyway. Del Toro will still triumph in Director and it’ll grab a couple of tech prizes to boot (as expected).

    I was predicting Three Billboards anyway but I think it’s becoming more and more likely in Picture. But as others have said, The Shape of Water never had a chance in Screenplay so this doesn’t affect its chances there.

    Not sure how many allegations it’s going to take for people to realize something “fishy” is going on with Shape of Water.

    I’m shocked nobody exposed Barry Jenkins for ripping off the little boy “Oh, I’m actually gay” scene from Before Night Falls in Moonlight. That Jenkins did such an inferior job in doing so made it offensive. At least Guillermo was an elevated thief.. If you’re going to steal IMPROVE on the concept at least.

    It’s a variation of Beauty and the Beast story merged with Creature from Black Lagoon. It wasn’t super original to begin with. So  Idk about “fishy”. I don’t think people were hailing this movie as some breakthrough movie in originality. It was just this fairytale in period setting.

    Shape isn’t winning Best Picture. You need Screenplay to take BP, especially in this years’ lineup. 3 Bills is going to take Screenplay and Picture. Get Out could upset both categories but I just don’t see it.

    Personally, I’m still predicting it to win Best Picture. I just don’t think that Three Billboards can overcome the preferential ballot.

    You left out about 30 other films over the last 80 years..

    And? The initial point was that this movie was never massively original from the start.
