    So… I think this is the year an Apes movie finally wins VFX.

    Looking at the Best Picture list, I find this to be one of the most lackluster set of nominees in recent years. Maybe it was just a subpar year for film in general…

    I just realised Kaluuya didn’t win the Globe and got in, opposite to Franco. But we all know why the latter got snubbed

    I find it far stronger than last year. Half of last year’s lineup were mediocre/bad.

    Everyone already knows about the Three Billboards backlash but I’m starting to see a lot of Shape of Water backlash as well on twitter.

    Agree to disagree. The only films worthy of this honor this year are Dunkirk, Three Billboards, Call Me by Your Name, Lady Bird, and I’ll even throw in Get Out because I enjoyed it. Last year, every nominee was worthy except Hacksaw Ridge.

    Overall, it comes down to personal taste, and many of the nominees this year I found to be quite dry and not have much to offer the viewer.

    Are they 3 Billboards fans? I have problems with both films but vastly prefer The Shape of Water if it were only between these two films.

    This is going to be close. I didn’t do as bad as I thought this morning (I called Lesley Manville, just dropped Mary J. Blige for it). I think Shape of Water is clearly the favorite. Three Billboards, though, still lurks and despite no Best Director nomination I think it can still pull it off in the preferential ballot. Mainly because it DOES feel more “important”, and it’s subject matter on prejudice, police brutality and a strong female lead might be the ingredients that voters lap up more then a pure fantasy film, or Get Out– which despite its 4 nods, has been underperforming at awards ceremonies.

    Even with no Best Director nomination, Argo still won (and yeah there was poor Ben, but still). I think voting styles have changed and certain stats don’t matter anymore. But certain ones DO. If it wasn’t for the preferential I would def say Shape of Water. But recently the movie that gets the most nominations loses. And no film without a SAG Ensemble nod has won since Braveheart. I’m sticking by those.

    Not easy for me to call anything, but these are my early predictions:

    BEST PICTURE: Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri
    BEST DIRECTOR: Guillermo del Toro, The Shape of Water
    BEST ACTOR: Gary Oldman, Darkest Hour
    BEST ACTRESS: Frances McDormand, Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri
    BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR: Sam Rockwell, Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri
    BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS: Allison Janney, I Tonya
    BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY: Call Me By Your Name, James Ivory
    BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY: Get Out, Jordan Peele
    BEST ANIMATED FEATURE: Coco
    BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY: Dunkirk
    BEST COSTUME DESIGN: Phantom Thread
    BEST FILM EDITING: Dunkirk
    BEST MAKEUP: Darkest Hour
    BEST SCORE: The Shape of Water, Alexandre Desplat
    BEST SONG: “Mighty River”, Mudbound
    BEST PRODUCTION DESIGN: The Shape of Water
    BEST SOUND MIXING: Dunkirk
    BEST SOUND EDITING: Dunkirk
    BEST VISUAL EFFECTS: Blade Runner 2049

    Last year I had Moonlight at #1 then switched at the last minute, this year I had PTA getting in at 100/1 odds and took him out before they announced it. I guess I really shouldn’t be swayed by the crowd but trust my instincts *sigh*

    If Haddish had been nominated do you think she would have mispronounced her name too?

    Haddish was great. Enough with the seriousness already. She’s a star.
