Why 'Get Out' is the future of the Oscars

Why 'Get Out' is the future of the Oscars

If the academy itself looked anything like its leadership - a safe assumption considering that we know it's now hovering around three-quarters male - then it's fair to assume men have overwhelmingly controlled which films are nominated at the Oscars and which films eventually won. According to the SDSU report, 11% of directors of the top 250 films previous year were female. This year's nominees Greta Gerwig (Best Director and Best Original Screenplay for Lady Bird) and Margot Robbie (Best Actress forI, Tonya) are also presenting. It's also tragic to see up close that the some people responsible for what's often touted as the biggest monoculture event of the year - at least in film - are so disengaged from culture to the point of downright laziness.

If you saw three films past year you're an instant Oscar expert.

While the Academy certainly has some hard decisions ahead, with no clear front-runners in any category, I've done my best to sort through the nominations, as well as analyze previous winners and I've compiled my predictions as to who will take home awards on Sunday in the "Big Three" categories, as well as a few others. But if there's a "Lady Bird" swell, look for Laurie Metcalf (who also played a mom) to slide in. "We got a good depiction of how women were treated in the workplace at that time". Willem Dafoe is a motel tenant's superhero in "The Florida Project" and Christopher Plummer pinch hits for Kevin Spacey as J. Paul Getty.

Sam Rockwell is expected to join his "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" costar Frances McDormand in the winner's circle. From the opening shot of the flooded apartment to the final view of the two lovers suspended in water, everything about "The Shape of Water" not only felt like a del Toro film but was simply handsome.

Gary Oldman will nearly certainly win best actor for his performance as Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour.

BEST ACTOR: Gary Oldman was the man to beat the minute his "Darkest Hour" saw the light of day.

Coyle: Would it not be great to see Jenkins win?

Nor'easter to wallop Atlantic coast
That storm battered areas all along Massachusetts' coast, and local officials said they're preparing for similar flooding. Next are the high winds, with high-wind warnings in effect for most of the area for Friday into early Saturday .

Best Picture: "The Shape of Water " Although the premise of this movie can appear a little odd at first, Guillermo del Toro's "The Shape of Water" is a handsome tale of romance, misunderstanding, mythology and mystery.

Best Actress: Sally Hawkins ("Shape of Water") is a silent damsel revealing a surprising inner strength and genuine inner beauty. The film was visually stunning and a worthy recipient. The victor of Best Picture will be tough to predict. "The Shape of Water" has the most nominations and should win.

"Daniel's my friend - I think he's got a great chance". They are a way of determining what we seek out in actors. "Dunkirk" is masterful, "The Shape of Water" is gorgeous, but I think "Blade Runner 2049" is the victor. Similarly, "Darkest Hour", "Lady Bird", "Call Me By Your Name" and "Phantom Thread" don't have the heft to pull this off.

He received only two noms, for Penny Serenade and None But the Lonely Heart, and never won an Oscar.

That leaves "Three Billboards" and "The Shape of Water".

"I am also hoping that Rachel Morrison will win best cinematography for her work on the exquisitely lovely "Mudbound", a film that deserved far more Oscar nominations than it received", he said. In my opinion, there are two favorites: "Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri" and "The Shape of Water". Thankfully, because his career is just starting off, he will probably have the opportunity to win this category in the future. "And then we face reality and think: how are we actually going to do this?"
