Best picture is becoming more and more unpredictable.
At first I thought it was going to be Dunkirk. Then I switched to the Post. Currently I am thinking they will give it to Guillermo. What would make ME happy would be (of course) if they gave it to Three Billboards plus anyone other than Lady Bird (cute good movie but NOT best picture material!) or Get out (which IS a great movie, but in the current line up barely in the same league of great)
I would be happy if it turned to to be, in this order:
1. Three Billboards 2. Call me By Your name 3. Darkest Hour
but Darkest Hour is out for sure, Cal me and Three have a decent shot but only if Shape, feminism and positive discrimination step aside, I think.
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri seems to have the heat behind it, and it is worthy. But look how La La Land wound up last year. I loved The Shape of Water but ain't nobody gonna give a fish man that Oscar for sure!
