My Bets: Who will go home with an Oscar? 90th Academy Awards

Hello Everyone!

Is everyone ready for tonight’s ceremony? I don’t know if I can stand to stay wake through the whole thing, but I’m sure going to try!

I’m not voting on categories where I didn’t watch any of the movies – the only exception I made was for the Animated Feature because all of the movies were already on my watchlist and I know everything about them. So, the follow categories will not be presented bellow: Animated Short, Best Documentary Feature, Best Documentary Short Subject, Best Live Action Short Film and Best Foreign Language Film.

Here’s my bets on today’s winners!

Best Picture

“Call Me by Your Name”
“Darkest Hour”
“Dunkirk”
“Get Out”
“Lady Bird”
“Phantom Thread”
“The Post”
“The Shape of Water”
“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”

I didn’t saw The Post and Phantom Thread. My personal favorite is Get Out and it would be a dream come true if it won this category, because it would change the course of film history for Horror Movies. As an whole, Three Billboards was the best piece in this category.

Director

“Dunkirk,” Christopher Nolan
“Get Out,” Jordan Peele
“Lady Bird,” Greta Gerwig
“Phantom Thread,” Paul Thomas Anderson
“The Shape of Water,” Guillermo del Toro

I loved everyone’s work in here (again, didn’t saw Phantom) but I think Dunkirk had impressed me the most in terms of perspective.

Lead Actor

Timothée Chalamet, “Call Me by Your Name”
Daniel Day-Lewis, “Phantom Thread”
Daniel Kaluuya, “Get Out”
Gary Oldman, “Darkest Hour”
Denzel Washington, “Roman J. Israel, Esq.”

Daniel Kaluuya deserved this Oscar for his role on Get Out, but if Gary Oldman doesn’t get this one there’s something wrong with the world.

Lead Actress

Sally Hawkins, “The Shape of Water”
Frances McDormand, “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”
Margot Robbie, “I, Tonya”
Saoirse Ronan, “Lady Bird”
Meryl Streep, “The Post”

Let me start by saying that I think Meryl Streep is overrated, I don’t think she is the acting genius everyone claims. Second, I think Frances McDormand will win it (if it isn’t stolen by Steep) but in my heart I want Margot Robbie to get it! Her performance on I, Tonya was the best I’ve ever seen of her, and the whole movie was amazing! I was very angry it wasn’t nominated for Best Picture.

Supporting Actor

Willem Dafoe, “The Florida Project”
Woody Harrelson, “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”
Richard Jenkins, “The Shape of Water”
Christopher Plummer, “All the Money in the World”
Sam Rockwell, “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”

I didn’t saw The Florida Project (but I will do it in a near future, despite the ceremony) and All the Money in the World. I like Woody but Sam Rockwell deserves it more.

Supporting Actress

Mary J. Blige, “Mudbound”
Allison Janney, “I, Tonya”
Lesley Manville, “Phantom Thread”
Laurie Metcalf, “Lady Bird”
Octavia Spencer, “The Shape of Water”

I think any of them can win, I just voted for Mary J. Blige because I’m praying for her to lose the Best Song category.

Animated Feature

“The Boss Baby,” Tom McGrath, Ramsey Ann Naito
“The Breadwinner,” Nora Twomey, Anthony Leo
“Coco,” Lee Unkrich, Darla K. Anderson
“Ferdinand,” Carlos Saldanha
“Loving Vincent,” Dorota Kobiela, Hugh Welchman, Sean Bobbitt, Ivan Mactaggart, Hugh Welchman

I’m voting for Coco just because I’m a Disney fangirl.

Adapted Screenplay

“Call Me by Your Name,” James Ivory
“The Disaster Artist,” Scott Neustadter & Michael H. Weber
“Logan,” Scott Frank & James Mangold and Michael Green
“Molly’s Game,” Aaron Sorkin
“Mudbound,” Virgil Williams and Dee Rees

Please, give this one to LOGAN!!

Original Screenplay

“The Big Sick,” Emily V. Gordon & Kumail Nanjiani
“Get Out,” Jordan Peele
“Lady Bird,” Greta Gerwig
“The Shape of Water,” Guillermo del Toro, Vanessa Taylor
“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” Martin McDonagh

Cinematography

“Blade Runner 2049,” Roger Deakins
“Darkest Hour,” Bruno Delbonnel
“Dunkirk,” Hoyte van Hoytema
“Mudbound,” Rachel Morrison
“The Shape of Water,” Dan Laustsen

I want her to win just because it’s the first time a woman gets nominated on this category!
