The Best Original Score category already has some front-runners emerging, but there is room for a number of films to nudge their way into the top five.
Best Makeup & Hairstyling. The oddest category at the Academy Awards, in that it only takes three nominees. It might be hard to narrow this one down…
The Best Visual Effects category has been narrowed down by the Academy to 10 films. Makes my job easier, sure, but even without the shortlist I think these five films would be the ones with the nominations.
There are plenty of well-shot movies that come out every year. 2017 was no different, which makes narrowing down just five movies for Best Cinematography an arduous task. But I’m going to do it anyway!
The Academy Award for Best Editing. Are you bored yet? Well, you shouldn’t be! Best Editing is the most exciting category at the Oscars!
Don’t believe me. Well, let’s talk about it.
What makes predicting the Best Foreign Language category easy is that much of the work has already been done for me! The category has already been narrowed down to just nine films, of which there are already clear favorites.
That said, there is still upset potential. In the Fade just won the Golden Globe, after all, to the surprise of even the winners themselves.
The Academy generally does a good job of reserving at least one spot in their Best Animated Feature category for an international picture. This year, there is potential for a number of international films to break the top five. However, there are also a lot of Hollywood pictures that the Academy may want to boast.
Yes this category has its obligatory Pixar nominee. But what of the other four slots? I’ll tell you this much: there are many movies to pick from.
