And I already made some predictions earlier in my frees when I was bored laugh.gif
Best Picture
- Darkest Hour
- Downsizing
- Untitled Kathryn Bigelow Project
- Untitled Paul Thomas Anderson Project
- Call Me By Your Name
----------------------------
- The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara
- Mother!
- The Greatest Showman
- Dunkirk
- On Chesil Beach

Best Lead Actor
- Gary Oldman "Darkest Hour"
- Timothée Chalamet "Call Me Be Your Name"
- Hugh Jackman "The Greatest Showman"
- Daniel Day-Lewis "TBA"
- Matt Damon "Downsizing"

Best Lead Actress
- Jennifer Lawrence "Mother!"
- Jessica Chastain "Molly's Game"
- Rooney Mara "Mary Magdalene"
- Saoirse Ronan "On Chesil Beach"
- Emma Stone "Battle of the Sexes"
Next up: Kate Winslet "Wonder Wheel", Glenn Close "The Wife", Kirsten Dunst "Woodshock", Judi Dench "Victoria and Abdul"

^ This is stacked again ohmy.gif ^

Best Supporting Actor
- Armie Hammer "Call Me By Your Name"
- Christoph Waltz "Downsizing"
- Mark Rylance "The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara"
- Woody Harrelson "The Glass Castle"
- Joaquin Phoenix "Mary Magdalene"

Best Supporting Actress
- Kristen Wiig "Downsizing"
- Michelle Pfeiffer "Murder On the Orient Express"
- Mary J. Blige "Mudbound"
- Michelle Williams "Wonderstruck"
- Naomi Watts "The Glass Castle"

Best Director
- Luca Guadagnino "Call Me By Your Name"
- Darren Aronofsky "Mother!"
- Dee Rees "Mudbound"
- Kathryn Bigelow "TBA"
- Christopher Nolan "Dunkirk"


I think Mudbound and Call Me By Your Name are the films with the most early hype from festivals etc. Gary Oldman seems to have undergone a huge transformation in his film and is probably deserving of an Oscar by now. I also think this year seems to be the return of Michelle Pfeiffer and supporting actress seems her best shot for a win with either Mother! or Murder On the Orient Express (she's getting great reviews for Where Is Kyra? too). Kirsten Dunst also seems to be going all out this year and perhaps could do what Alicia Vikander could not and get nominations in both actress categories for The Beguiled and Woodshock.

I really want Glenn to get an Oscar, she's been so good in so many things over the years even a career one feels overdue.

Looks as though Spielberg's film this year could be The Post (about the Washington Post's role in revealing the Pentagon Papers) with Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks rather than the Edgardo Mortara film which seems to be pushed back. Surely they should both be locks for nominations but Tom Hanks does seem to be have been snubbed a fair few times in recent years (Captain Phillips, Bridge of Spies, Sully, Saving Mr Banks etc).

Nothing would make me happier. Kirsten is one of Hollywood's most underrated actresses, her role in Melencholia deserved a nomination (even a win) and she's just been amazing in everything. Her role on Fargo was also world class last year, and Gaga beating her to the Golden Globe was a very odd moment. I would feel genuinely emotional if Kirsten managed even a nomination at some point.

How amazing would a Meryl Streep vs Rooney Mara vs Jessica Chastain vs Saoirse Ronan vs Judi Dench Best Actress category be?!?

Or Tom Hanks vs Hugh Jackman vs Gary Oldman vs Daniel Day-Lewis vs Matt Damon ?!?

Or Kristen Wiig vs Michelle Williams vs Julianne Moore vs Naomi Watts vs Michelle Pfeiffer ?!?

I know that some of these are going to end up terrible and there will be shock indie frontrunners come the time of awards season but you can't not look at the lists above and just get RIDICULOUSLY excited for this year in film heart.gif

'The Disaster Artist' (about Tommy Wiseau and the making of the film 'The Room') seems to be getting pretty good reviews coming out of SXSW. Perhaps, James Franco could be a dark horse to get a second nomination?

"Battle of the Sexes" has been given a US release date in September, doesn't bode well for its box office or Oscars chances (but of course, films have swept nominations with earlier release dates before). Saying that, it does star Emma Stone and Steve Carrell as well as having the directors of Little Miss Sunshine, the writer of Slumdog Millionaire & 127 Hours, the cinematographer of La La Land, and the composer from Moonlight!


Also, "Beauty and the Beast" has been screening to Oscar voters and been getting a good response apparently, perhaps Disney are hoping for a few nominations too!
