    Only the fifth time that a woman has been nominated for Best Director.
  • @reg

    Yeah, I was going by buzz.

    I haven't seen any of the Best Picture nominees apart from Get Out, which I enjoyed, I don't get to the cinema for much apart from Marvel or Star Wars films these days. There was a time when I'd have seen everything on this list.

    I want an entire Radiohead album inspired by the imposter-syndrome and sense of alienation inspired in Jonny Greenwood if he wins.
  • I’m backing Baby Driver for both of the editing awards.
  • I keep meaning to see Call Me By Your Name, seems mad it didn't get a Cinematography nomination as from what i've heard the DP managed to shoot it so that even though much of the filming took place in rainy/post rainy skies, it looks like gorgeous sunlight - on film no less.

    It's a beautiful film. I expect BR to pick up on technical awards. I'd be surprised if BD wins, even if it is best, given past Oscar trends

    Good way of thinking about it - every year my mum and I swap Oscar picks with our own choices as for what we think should win. Often very different

    Right on. Still would've been nice to see it make it a nice round 10 list. Or better yet, replacing Dunkirk entirely.

    I ain’t seen Dunkirk, but from what I’ve read, I reckon Zimmer’s a lock for OST.

    Fairly poor list of films, from what I've seen. Billboards is good.
  • I have impressively seen none of the best picture noms. I thought I was doing better with films this year too.
    Let's go exploring....
  • I’m so behind on movies. Haven’t seen any of those best pic picks. Phantom Thread will deffo get a viewing if only cos I love DDLewis. And Anderson is great director.

    Billboards and Call Me... also on top of my (long) list. 

    Must play fewer games and catch up on past few years.
    "But enough talk. HAVE AT YOU!"
  • I bet plenty of the judging cohort would have got misty eyed at Three Billboards murky tale of redemption but it rubbed me up the wrong way.
