    To receive a Best Picture nomination is a guarantee of publicity for a movie at the time, but ultimately, we tend to move away from many of them. Since the BP field expanded, this seems particularly true (when, for example, is the last time anybody watched An Education or Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close?)

    That being said, if you had to guess now, which of this years Best Picture nominees do you think will still be talked about in 25 years? Or, to put it another way, which movies do you feel like will withstand the test of time, and become budding classics?

    I think they’ll all be remembered well except for The Post and Darkest Hour. DH will at least be remembered for Oldman’s win though.

    The Shape of Water, Get Out, Dunkirk, Three Billboards in that order.

    Get Out and Call Me By Your Name. Lady bird, unfavorably when, there will be more complex and layered female directed films that get snubbed in the future and not get the attention Lady Bird got, and people will wonder why this film made it as far as it can without being a gimmick.

    Get Out and Call Me by Your Name are the obvious ones; I predict their impact will be felt in what kind of movies are made and how they’re made many years from now; they also both pull off simultaneously capturing the zeitgeist and being timeless, much like Casablanca or All About Eve back when.

    Phantom Thread. Come on, it’s a PTA film.

    I’ve watched all of them and the only movies I want to see again are Get Out and Call Me By Your Name.

    I think all of them will be remembered. We still remember about “War Horse” and “Extremely Loud…” and it’s been 7 years already, right? 9 after “The Blind Side”?

    “Get Out” and “Lady Bird” will be remembered and mentioned frequently, given the history. “Call Me By Your Name” is already a classic.

    “Dunkirk” and “The Shape of Water” will be very fine.

    “Phantom Thread” might become one of more important films of Anderson’s filmography (behind “There Will Be Blood” and “Boogie Nights”).

    “The Post” is a mystery, it depends of how the next years will look like politically (sorry).

    “Darkest Hour” might be seen as Oscar bait not many people desire to watch. Isn’t it just that right now?

    Time was kind for “In Bruges” but I’m not sure how “Three Billboards…”s gonna do. It’s divisive.

    I don’t know. I feel like in the future, people will know that Oldman won an Oscar, but they’ll have a lot of trouble guessing what he won for.

    I think Get Out and The Shape of Water will be most remembered of the nine nominees as stand-alone films rather than by association with a certain actor or director. Phantom Thread is safe from falling into total obscurity given that it is a Paul Thomas Anderson film that featured perhaps Daniel Day Lewis’s final performance. Darkest Hour will be remembered as Gary Oldman’s Oscar winning performance. The Post and Three Billboards probably won’t age all that well.

    I think that time will be kind to Three Billboards. There will probably still be detractors of the film in 25 years, but it may be viewed as a masterpiece understood by several when it came out. With that being said, I think that Get Out, The Shape of Water and Lady Bird will be looked at as better films.
