    I guess we didn't make this thread yet. I finally finished watching all the Best Pictures and I would rank them...

    1. Phantom Thread
    2. Lady Bird
    3. The Shape of Water
    4. Three Billboards outside of Ebbing, Missouri
    5. Dunkirk
    6. Get Out
    7. The Post
    8. Call Me By Your Name
    9. Darkest Hour

    With the exception of Darkest Hour, I genuinely very much enjoyed all the movies nominated this year. This is kind of a hard year to predict the best picture winner. Shape of Water, Lady Bird or Three Billboards will get it. It's a shame I, Tonya or the Florida Project didn't get in there. James Franco was cheated but now it's a no contest for Gary Oldman. Margot Robbie deserves it but it'll go to McDormand. Rooting for Dafoe over Rockwell. As for best director, I would be okay with any one of them winning, it's an extremely solid list. Score should go to Johnny Greenwood, but I'm sure Desplat will get it.

    It’s funny to read Jordan Peele’s name with all these big directors like PTA, Del Toro, Nolan lol it’s a K&P sketch waiting to happen
    You know nothing about film.
    Spoiler:

    Nintendo masks their lack of graphic quality with "quirky graphics and characters".
    I can honestly say, if at 19, I was a pro baseball player, I would have exactly 100% fewer broken bats and thrown helmets.
    I could have made a better TDKR
    I feel sad for your inability to just enjoy an entertaining movie without you being critical over it's components.

    Didn't see a thread for this but i really liked shape of water. After blade 2 this is probably my favorite del toro movie. Michael shannon is such a funny actor, he knows how to play the right amount of unhinged and then full blown nuts. Everyone else, especially eliza were all likable characters.

    Not sure if id have given it best oscar as i thought 3 billboards was a pretty damn good movie but easily del toros best. I loved the look pf the amphibian man, reminded me of abe from hell boy.
