So the contest will be tough but be assured that the best grossing movie will always stand the chance of carting away with the Oscars to hold at Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles California at evening 5pm PST. The Oscars will be broadcast live exclusively on Sky Cinema in the UK.
Douglas Fairbanks co-hosted the first Academy Awards with William C. deMille in 1929. With recent strides forward tackling diversity and representation, The Oscars may decide to make a statement of intent this year. Later, the Academy became consumed with big budget war narratives and generally problematic films showing white characters entering into "distant lands" to learn something about a new culture (see: Out of Africa). It won at the Golden Globes, the BAFTA and the Screen Actors Guild Awards, and it tackles more relatable issues than "The Shape of Water". This breaks the tradition that last year's winners hand out the gongs onstage, but allegations made against Affleck seemingly made this untenable. There was an infamous opening number in which Merv Griffin sang "I've Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts!" and then the stage was turned over to Rob Lowe, who was trying to live down a real-life sex-tape scandal by dancing with Snow White to the tune of "Proud Mary". That's usually a really good sign and it's why I'm giving it the edge over "Three Billboards". This year, for example, everyone knows who's going to win the major acting awards.
The men fighting for the Oscar for Best Actor are Timothée Chalamet for "Call Me by Your Name", Gary Oldman for "Darkest Hour", Daniel Kaluuya for "Get Out", Daniel Day-Lewis for "Phantom Thread" and Denzel Washington for "Roman J. Israel, Esq". By more than four to one, they would rather watch films in their home than go out to do so.
Will Win: Oldman has this one in the bag.
Should Win: Lesley Manville upstaged Daniel Day-Lewis (in a good way) as the steadfast Cyril, who can be sometimes terrifying and often amusing and without whom "Phantom Thread" would have come crashing to the ground.
Who will win: Frances McDormand definitely deserves it above the other performers.
D'Imperio said of McDormand, "Her performance of a revenge-seeking, still-grieving mother of a murdered teenage daughter, is taut, edgy and explosive".
Who should win: Frances McDormand is the outright victor in her category. His role as a racist, alcoholic sheriff in Three Billboards was absorbing.
Production design: "The Shape of Water".
Should Win: It is Willem Dafoe who gives "The Florida Project" its beating heart.
Her three wins were for "Kramer vs. Kramer" (1979), "Sophie's Choice" (1982) and "The Iron Lady" (2011). But the fact that Get Out is still in the conversation after a year means that it's a viable option.
Will Win: There are five movies with a legitimate shot to win, which makes this year more hard than usual to call. It would also be fantastic to see such an indie-gem get the limelight.
