    I think “The Shape of Water” will get maximum no. of nominations at the oscar awards this year as it already did that in other major film awards, but will it be able to get any award? As of now I think it will get award in the Best Production Design category, but other than that the other categories in which it has any chance of winning are the for Best Director and Best Original Score and in that two categories also it will face huge competition from “Dunkirk”. So what you guys think?

    I think “The Shape of Water” excels in a few categories so I don’t think it will go home empty handed on Oscar night. I liked the movie, but it didn’t resonate with me like a lot of folks – I just didn’t connect with the “beauty and beast” relationship. Hawkins was solid, but I prefer her role in “Maudie” And like you mentioned, the Production Design was top notch, although it has some serious competition in that category. As a fan of Carter Burrell’s score from “Wonderstruck”, I’ve pretty much given up on it scoring a nomination for score. I will probably be cheering for the “Three Billboards” score since Burrell also composed the music for that movie, although I would be fine with “The Shape of Water” being recognized for score.

    Then on the other hand, Oscar may love the film – but is it enough love to push its nominations to wins?

    The only category I am currently predicting for it is production design (while I do not believe it deserves to win, I am talking about predicting it to win). But I do need to wait and see what the final nominations actually are. We have a ways to go but things will clear once the nominations are finally announced.

    At this point, I suspect it takes Director, Original Score and Production Design.

    I have it winning Actress, Director, Score and Production Design. In order of likelihood:

    1. Production Design
    2. Director
    3. Score
    4. Actress

    I think it’s definitely going to be at least of them.

    I think it wins Score. Has good chance in Production Design. And Del Toro could win but yeah you are right, it’s win count is low considering all the noms it’s gonna get.

    I expect it to win Best Director.

    And Best Cinematography, since the last five Director and Cinematography awards went to the same films.

    It could also take Lead Actress. The last two Best Director winners also won a Lead Acting category.

    Depending on how it’s recieved, I think it could even end up being the first film in 21 years to win Best Picture without getting the SAG Ensemble nomination. (It will hit the three other strongest predictors: DGA nom, PGA nom, and Oscar screenplay nom). Of course, if it wins Best Picture, it’s also winning Original Screenplay.

    I don’t know about the other techical categories.
