Oscars 2018.

Recommended Posts

Nominees announced next week, 23rd of January.

Gary Oldman seems to be a lock for Best Actor. Better late recognition than none.

Hopefully The Lego Batman Movie gets the nomination The Lego Movie remarkably missed out on. The again it's a comic book movie at the Oscars ; ).

Slim to none chance of Hugh Jackman, Sir. Patrick Stewart and Dafne Keen getting acting nominations.

Christopher Nolan has never received a Best Director nomination. Wow. Nolan was robbed for The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight didn't get the Best Picture nomination it deserved either.

Thinking Best Director will be between Christopher Nolan and Guillermo del Toro. del Toro is one of my favourite directors but I'd rather see Nolan win as I'm a bigger fan of his work.

All I ask is that "(Who's The Bat)man" and "This is Me" get nominated for best song, simply for the Oscar performances.

My only consideration is that the secret ballot people get stabbed in a dark hallway if Three Billboards over Ebbing, Missouri doesn't win Best Picture

We need a Will Arnett reprisal:

 

This is a good reminder that everyone looks like Batman in the goddam suit and they should just recast the part with Will Arnett.

Patrick Stewart should totally get the nod for the Emoji movie.

After the SAG awards, it looks like we finally have a frontrunner. 

With the way this decade has gone, surely that means Three Billboards doesn't win Best Picture.

I’m sure I’ll see that one eventually. But there’s no way the actual movie is as much fun as reading people’s reactions to it. That was almost fun as the reviews for Lucy.

Christopher Nolan finally gets a Best Director nomination.

Logan misses out on acting awards though picks up Adapted Screenplay out. The Boss Baby and Ferdinand, over the Lego Batman Movie, really? 

Chuckling Sheldon's Mum, Mary in The Big Bang Theory, Laurie Metcalf  is up for Best Supporting Actress.

This be the year Roger Deakens wins Best Cinematography? Unreal he's never won.

Criminal both the Lego Movie and now the Lego Batman Movie missing out on Best Animated Feature Academy Award nominations.

I haven't seen most of the nominees, but the majority of them look very intriguing and I look forward to seeing them. It was a  low key strong year for movies.

Gotta love Mother getting Razzie nonimations.

I thought the Razzies were for bad movies, not misunderstood ones?  Transformers:  The Last Knight rightfully leads in Razzie noms this year.

The only way Lego Batman will win an Oscar is through Best Song, I'm afraid.   The Best Animated Feature award is Coco's to win or lose, and there is a good chance it may take Best Song, too..

I am totally stoked for the noms for Get Out, but none of them will win.  At least the Academy has this #OscarsSoWhite thing beat this year.

I am happy that This Is Me made the Best Song category, but how in the hell did The Boss Baby and Ferdinand edge out Lego Batman for Best Animated Feature?  The fix is in.

You are admitting to not having seen The Post, Get Out, Dunkirk, The Shape of Water, or Three Billboards.  This makes me sad.

This is the first time in two years that I have seen over half of the noms before the nom announcement.

Amusing that I've seen more of the Best Foreign Film nominees (3) than the Best Actor nominees (2).

I don’t know if The Post or Three Billboards have opened here yet. Definitely want to see the latter.

I've only seen two of the Best Foreign Film noms. 

Thanks to the DVDVR Documentary Thread, I've seen over half of those movies.  I remember being enraged for five days straight after watching Abacus.  Thanks for the recommendation, Rippa...
