    After underperforming at pretty much every award show this season, should we consider Dunkirk being at risk of being shut out or only receive technical nominations? It hasn’t seemed to pick up much traction and missed out on a stunt ensemble win, which it seemed like it was guaranteed to win, and it’s still ranked in the Top 5 in Gold Derby’s predictions.

    Have faith in the straight white man contingent to get it its Best Picture nomination.

    The rest of it’s noms will be in tech categories, but that was always going to be the case. It never had a shot at screenplay or acting.

    Pretty much done. It will probably win Best Film Editing and Sound Editing/Mixing.

    It should win Cinematography as well.

    Do y’all think it could still sneak into Director or is the competition too stiff?

    It might get some technical awards. Cinematography? I don’t think so. I believe Roger Deakins (Blade Runner 2049) will finally get his Oscar.

    Nolan has been a constant presence in Best Director lineups all season long. He seems guaranteed a spot, and Dunkirk should have no problem getting into Best Picture as well. The film might only win a tech category or two, or even walk home empty handed, but I can’t see anything stopping it getting nominated both above and below the line.

    I agree. Blade Runner will win Cinematography and deservedly so.

    I bet Dunkirk will receive a good number of nominations, as expected, but it’ll end up being the big loser at the night of the Oscars.

    Losing SAG Stunt Ensemble and only winning one award at Critics Choice (and a tie at that) has me thinking it may underperform tomorrow.

    However, it seemed to show up a lot across many guilds. So I agree with Marco: a lot of nominations still seem likely. A bunch of wins seem questionable unless it wins awards at BAFTA and/or ACE, Cinema Audio Society, etc.

    As expected, it will receive a very good number of nominations tomorrow, probably 9, just not as good as The Shape of Water, which will receive at least 11. It’s not underperforming in terms of nominations, with considerable mentions in mostly of the important precusors. In terms of wins, however, it’s winning only 2 or 3 techs.

    Odds are, about nine Oscar nominations and two or three tech wins on the big night.

    That’s interesting, PJ. Most people consider him a safe bet for Best Director.

    I am mostly referencing his tendency to (not) campaign. Anyone not named Del Toro is not safe in that category.
