    Everybody managed to create a nice little storyline for Argo and Affleck after his snub. Argo was called frontrunner and winner way way back when it premiered at Toronto or wherever that was. The momentum never stopped and once Affleck was snubbed, it was drama, scandal and a pity party. And there were hardly any other options to reward.

    Three Billboards might have seemed like the favorite and could still win, but McDonagh being snubbed will do nothing for it the way it happened for Argo. It’ll need a lot of support to win since the media will gladly turn its back on it and continue to ridiculously champion Get Out, think that Lady Bird and Gerwig can actually win this (lol) or just go to the logical place which is The Shape of Water.

    It will be interesting to see which is a more valuable showing of support, with the directing snub often being really key, but Shape of Water also missed SAG Ensemble which is pretty important too. Life of Pi had virtually all the same nominations in its year that Shape of Water did (apart from acting) so it’s not like there wasn’t a clear option that year for an alternative.

    Also, Three Billboards and Argo ended up with the exact same number of nominations, which to me is merely a funny coincidence.
