Here are my thoughts on what’s going to win at this year’s Oscars and what I want to win at this year’s Oscars.
Nominations: The Shape of Water, Call Me by Your Name, Darkest Hour, The Post, Phantom Thread, Get Out, Dunkirk, Lady Bird, and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Who Will Win: Three Billboards
Who I Want to Win: The Florida Project (not nominated) or Lady Bird
Three Billboards is a worthy Best Picture contender and I wouldn’t mind seeing it win. But the only thing that really bothers me about the film is the tone – Three Billboards is a dark comedy, and while I do like dark comedies and appreciated their moments in the film, I think that in many instances in the film the drama would’ve stuck better. Lady Bird would be my choice to win out of the nominations because it’s such a strikingly real movie. Though I would rather have The Florida Project be nominated and win because of it’s impact on me – I can’t quite forget that film, it has still stuck with me since I’ve seen it.
