recently we've watched The Shape of Water, 3 Billboards and Baby Driver. Three Billboards was my favourite and any awards are deserved. Shape of Water was great, and Baby Driver should win all the sound awards.

Of the Best Picture nominees, I've seen Dunkirk, Get Out, Three Billboards, and Ladybird. I will try to see the others.

I was hoping that Blade Runner 2049 and/or Logan would make the cut.

I wonder what effect, if any, the recent allegations against James Franco had on the nominations for him and his film.

I've now seen Dunkirk, Get Out, Lady Bird, The Post, The Shape of Water and Three Billboards. We've got Darkest Hour lined up for tonight (yay dvdscreeners), and will try to find time for Call Me By Your Name and Phantom Thread before Sunday night.

Of the films I've seen so far, I'm really not sure which I'd choose. The Shape of Water was excellent, but more predictable than I'd expected, although I may have been too critical of it given high expectations. The Post was outstanding, and Dunkirk was ground-breaking. I'd be happy with any of those three winning.

My favourite movies of the year, measured by how many times I will re-watch them over my lifetime, were Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Coco, War For The Planet of the Apes, Logan, Thor Ragnarok, Wonder Woman, and Spider-man Homecoming. It was a great year for superhero/blockbuster films. :)

I'd love to see wins for Gary Oldman (actor), Frances McDormand (actress), Sam Rockwell (supporting actor), Allison Janney (supporting actress), Christopher Nolan (director), The Big Sick (original screenplay), Logan (adapted screenplay), and Coco (animated movie, original song).

It will be interesting to see how the #metoo movement plays out, with accused abuser Ryan Seacrest hosting the red carpet. I love the Oscars, so I'll be watching the whole thing.
 
How was Dunkirk groundbreaking?

I'm not being snarky, I just didn't really see anything that hasn't been done before in other war movies. Dunkirk is fantastically well made, directed and written, but I'm not sure if the adjective groundbreaking is really something I'd associate it with.

Anyways, getting a bit of a feeling we're going to see Dunkirk take either picture or director, while Get Out might have a shot at whichever Dunkirk doesn't take - I'm leaning towards Get Out winning best original screenplay - Dunkirk is pretty sparse on dialogue. Baby Driver deserves best editing - it's one seriously tightly made movie.

I'd like to see The Shape of Water's Guillermo del Toro take home best director, but I think he's not going to get it this year.

2017, it was a year I probably saw the most films in a movie theatre in the last decade. However, out of the 9 "best picture" nominees I'm ashamed to say I've only seen 2 of the titles "Dunkirk" and "Get Out". I stopped downloading torrents since I don't use VPN, so I didn't get to see any of the free screeners which circulated before awards season. Plus, most of the years I grew up on it was usually 5 titles for best picture, 5 names for best director and so...
 
Pretty surprised to see The Shape of Water win best director and best picture. Wasn't expecting that, and congrats to the Toronto crew that worked on it - hopefully more recognition comes their way.

Get Out winning best screenplay was a good choice, same for Dunkirk winning best Editing - I still think that Baby Driver is the superior, more high wire act, but the one thing that Nolan knows how to do is play with time and narrative and still tell a coherent story (ie Memento, Insomnia, Inception, Interstellar, etc).

Nice to see Sam Rockwell win best supporting actor - he's always been very underrated, but also a bit wild with his work choices. Same for Frances McDormand - she's someone that, no matter how bad the movie is, she herself and her character are almost never boring. When she's good like she is in this - she's excellent in conveying her character's conviction and anger towards the people that stand between her and closure, as well as much, much more.

Overall, not a bad note really - all the choices were ones that didn't really make me think that anyone got robbed or ignored.
 
Oh yeah, finally Deakins gets his due - took 14 nominations, but at least he got it with a tour de force project like Blade Runner 2049 that showcased his talents full blast.
