2018 Oscars 90th Academy Awards

My pick for Best Picture is a toss-up between Dunkirk and Shape Of The Water. One is a cold big budget excursion. The other a warm and creative low budget excursion that looks like a million bucks.

To me, the other nominees are more great acting showcases rather than great films as a whole.


Special shout-out to Get Out, a funny inventive low budget movie that was great fun.

Jimmy Kimmel was awesome last year. I'm watching this year mostly because of him.

Sooo happy for him. I always felt he was snubbed badly for Moon.

Well deserved. The production design is a big part of the world created in this dreamy America.

Blade Runner +1

Cinematography


Interesting how no one moves is dominating. But I guess it’s only right as all the movies this year had aspects where they were better, but not as a whole.

Now I’m really curious as to who wins the Best Picture Oscar

Shape of Water +2

Guillermo Del Torro Best director

Well deserved. He made a low budget movie look like a million bucks. And made a movie with lot of heart.

Highlights for me Mary J Blige's amazing performance, seeing Eve Marie Saint and Rita Moreno slay worship happy to see Faye and Warren get another chance in presenting the Best Picture, and of course seeing Alison Janney win Best Support Actress for I, Tonya biggrin

I can't believe that piece of Crap Coco won Best Animated Film and Best song, Mystery Of Love was way better.

She seemed a littel nervous at first but she pulled through strong. Proud of her.

I wanted to like that movie but I went to the theater after hearing all the hype and left confused. I dont get what was so stunning about it. It's like a quirky artsy version of Splash. lol

What were you confused about? She fell in love with a fish.

Watched the highlights. Kimmel was not funny. Too pc.
