    I feel reasonably confident about Star Trek here. A Man Called Ove is too obscure, I suspect, and Suicide Squad is well, too unwatchably horrendous.

    There’s nothing obscure about it. It’s a mainstream film through and through. I hear it was an arthouse hit in the US last year.

    It would be the lowest-grossing winner ever in the category.

    What qualifies as a “hit”?  It made less than $4M in the US, not enough to rank in the top 100 Foreign Language films (per BoxOffice Mojo).

    There’s no denying that it’s a sentimental button-pusher and it will get some crossover viewing because of Foreign Language, but it still is the most obscure title in any of the regular feature film categories (except for possibly JIM: THE JAMES FOLEY STORY).

    I am sticking with Ove for now. If it were “too obscure” then it wouldn’t have been nominated for two Oscars. I also think it’s very possible it bumps off Toni Erdmann in foreign. As for makeup, something about the fact that Star Trek is a sequel is nagging at me – in a sense wouldn’t they be rewarding much of the same makeup they did the first time? I know that one of the previous Trek makeup winners is nominated again for this iteration.

    Both in categories with shortlists.

    Didn’t stop ROTK winning MakeUp after FOTR did.

    Fair, I wouldn’t say it’s a populist choice by any means I just meant that it’s popular enough to make short lists and earn nominations in two categories over far academy friendlier fare.

    Again, not saying Ove is running away with it but both LOTR were BP nominees that had support all over the place, unlike ST.
