My Final Oscar Nominations Predictions. Here are some theories behind my list.
- Supporting Actress was difficult. While Hong Chau and Mary J. Blige were both nominated for Globe and SAG, they have their weaknesses. Could the Academy's Netflix bias hurt Blige like it did for Idris Elba? Hong Chau's comedic role as a Vietnamese woman in Downsizing had divided people.
- Sean Baker has won some critics awards that makes me think he could be the out-of-nowhere Best director nominee, like Lenny Abrahamson for Room.
- Christopher Plummer seems to be All The Money in the World's biggest Oscar potential. Many view him and the film's highlight, and story behind the reshoots could work in his favour.
- I only have The Big Sick for supporting actress and original screenplay. I think it is one of those "the little movie that could" like Straight Outta Compton that gets a screenplay nom but misses Picture. #oscarnominations #oscars #ladybird #oscarpredictions #theshapeofwater #2018oscars #thepost #dunkirk #movies #oscars2018 #getout #threebillboardsoutsideebbingmissouri #thefloridaproject #cinema #callmebyyourname
