    What are the chances CMBYN get’s Carol’d? What would they replace it with? Big Sick?

    I feel like that’s a possibility. I haven’t seen the film yet, but I’m getting the same vibes I got with Carol. They have a lot of similarities.

    -Huge hype from critics and forums
    -Carried by acclaimed performances
    -European styled romance films with a gay relationship at the center.
    -Both adapted screenplays
    -Both directed by openly gay men
    -Both underperformed at SAG (Carol should’ve got ensemble; CMBYN also missed there, though I understand why, but it should’ve definitely got at least one supporting actor in)

    It could even tie Carol’s record of most nominations and no accompanying Best Picture nom under the new system. (Actor, 2 Supporting actors, Adapted Screenplay, Song, cinematography)

    As what replaces it, it depends on what you’re lineup is. I still have it making it at this point because I think Timothee Chalamet might win Best Actor and carry the film in. Though I might change my mind if I see

    “The Shape of Water”, “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”, “Lady Bird”, “Get Out”, “Call Me By Your Name”, “Dunkirk”, “The Florida Project”, “The Post”

    If 9: “I, Tonya’

    If 10: “Phantom Thread” or “The Disaster Artist” or “The Big Sick”

    I can’t with people who don’t have Get Out still getting nominated for Best Picture when it, along with Lady Bird and Three Billboards, are the obvious frontrunners at this point in the race.

    I think we’ve already established in the other discussion about Chalamet that your definition of “frontrunner” is very different from the conventional one.

    My defintion of frontrunner is the conventional one for sure. I’m sorry if you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple of weeks and have no idea that in reality Timothee is the obvious Best Actor frontrunner with the most passion behind him, both from critics and people in the industry. It says something that even with his film under-performing greatly at SAG, he still made the cut. Or are you just too much of an Oldman stan to see this as clearly as it is?

    lol what? I literally had Chalamet predicted to win the Oscar up until yesterday. And I’ll probably keep changing my mind back and forth. This race is not over for either of them.

    I am currently predicting 9 BP nominations. I am just not sure if the 9th nominee will be Darkest Hour, Mudbound, The Big Sick or All The Money In The World. For now I have Darkest Hour in the 9th slot, joining Call Me By Your Name, Dunkirk, The Florida Project, Get Out, Lady Bird, The Post, The Shape Of Water and Three Billboards.

    Three Billboards

    Lady Bird

    Get Out

    Shape of Water

    The Post

    Dunkirk

    The Phanthom Thread

    CMBYN

    are definite for me, and then,

    9. The Florida Project (I know critics are supporting this soooo hard but still I believe the Academy will ignore this)

    10. And, I don’t actually think so, but Darkest Hour.

    [BUT there’s a chance for them to choose The Big Sick instead of Darkest Hour, but a bioagraphic drama is more likely than a satire.]

    Well after the PGA noms I’m predicting Florida Project and Phantom Thread are going to be ignored

    Don’t see The Big Sick getting nom, nor Mudbound,
    My locks are:
    Lady Bird
    3 billboards
    Dunkirk
    Post
    Shape of Water
    Get Out
    CMBYN

    I’m throwing in darkest hour, big sick and Wonder Woman on my predictions just in case there’s a surprise, but don’t see it happening (maybe Darkest Hour).

    8 minimum, although I’d love to see 10.

    Call Me By Your Name
    Dunkirk
    Get Out
    Lady Bird
    The Big Sick
    The Post
    The Shape of Water
    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    4 of these films are absolute locks, while the other 4 (CMBYN, Dunkirk, TBS, Post) could be shock snubs. Well, I guess that Big Sick wouldn’t be a “shock” snub (would anyone even care?), but I think it’s safely in thanks to the SAG Ensemble and PGA noms, and likely Oscar screenplay nom.

    Molly’s Game, I Tonya, and The Disaster Artist all seem to be gaining some steam, while The Florida Project, Darkest Hour, Mudbound, and Phantom Thread aren’t out of the (best) picture yet.

    Coco, Wonder Woman, or Star Wars could make for nice curveballs, too. Wonder Woman has the most going for it, but I doubt Warner Bros could get two films into the lineup.

    It’s down to Lady Bird, Three Billboards, Get Out and The Shape of Water for the win. I can actually see 10 films being nominated.

    If there was ever a year to have all ten possible nominations, this is it – as proven by PGA.

    I’m going 8 here, although I would love to see The Academy to nominate 10 films for once. I have Darkest Hour and Mudbound in my BP predictions mainly to fill the last two spots. The 8 films are:

    Lady Bird
    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
    Get Out
    The Shape of Water
    Dunkirk
    The Post
    Call Me By Your Name
    The Florida Project/Phantom Thread

    I still feel a strong 7:

    Call Me by Your Name
    Dunkirk
    Get Out
    Lady Bird
    The Post
    The Shape of Water
    Three Billboards

    I think CMBYN is the most vulnerable here, but I don’t know what would take its place.

    Consensus 6:
    Get Out
    Lady Bird
    Dunkirk
    The Shape of Water
    Three Billboards…
    The Post

    Likely 7:
    Call Me By Your Name

    8:
    The Florida Project

    9:
    The Big Sick or Mudbound

    10:
    I, Tonya or Darkest Hour

    The Academy has never nominated less than 8, if I’m not mistaken, since expanding Best Picture. So CMBYN is probably good to go and The Florida Project has a good shot.

    I have a feeling Mudbound will be snubbed because of non-traditional, non-theatrical release. Not getting into PGA seemed like a warning sign to me. It’ll only get in with strong support from the actors’ branch.
