    This was the first time I watched the oscars. I was obsessed with The Silence of the Lambs, so I needed to see if they would win, and they did, so I was a happy little girl :)

    No, I don't always agree.

    Sometimes the choices seem wildly at odds with what become accepted classics in the years that follow and the statuette is often given out to some film that will be a forgotten and largely unwatched obscurity in the years ahead, while the film that is snubbed is, in contrast, watched by new generations of viewers, who appreciate it more than the Oscars ever did. :emoji_alien:

    PGA Unveils Its Best Picture Nominees

    The Producers Guild of America announced the nominees for their year-end awards this morning, their Best Picture category usually the single best indicator of what will end up an Oscar nominee in a few weeks time.

    The contenders?

    “The Big Sick,”

    “Call Me By Your Name,”

    “Dunkirk,”

    “Get Out,”

    “I, Tonya,”

    “Lady Bird,”

    “Molly’s Game,”

    “The Post,”

    “The Shape of Water,”

    “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”

    “Wonder Woman”.


    Last year, nine out of their ten nominees made the cut for Best Picture (“Deadpool” being the one that missed out). In each of the four years before that, all but one of the Oscar Best Picture nominees came from the PGA’s ten nominee list. This means, at best, it’s likely only one of the notable absentees from this list like “The Florida Project,” “Mudbound,” “Darkest Hour” or “Phantom Thread” will score a Best Picture nomination.

    “The Boss Baby,” “Coco,” “Despicable Me 3,” “Ferdinand” & “The LEGO Batman Movie” are up for the animated film award. “Chasing Coral,” “City of Ghosts,” “Cries from Syria,” “Earth: One Amazing Day,” “Jane,” “Joshua: Teenager vs. Superpower,” and “The Newspaperman: The Life and Times of Ben Bradlee” are up for the Best Documentary.

    On the TV front the Best Drama Series category includes “Big Little Lies,” “The Crown,” “Game of Thrones,” “The Handmaid’s Tale” & “Stranger Things”. On the Best Comedy Series front it’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” “Master of None,” “Silicon Valley” and “Veep”. On the TV movie/mini-series front the nominees are “Black Mirror,” “Fargo,” “Feud,” “Sherlock: The Lying Detective” and “The Wizard of Lies”.

    I don't know who Boss Baby payied off, but that movie shouldn't have made the list. Hope Coco wins the award. I was really hoping for Franco to get a nomination same with his movie. What I love about the awards alot of times there are movies that get nominated that I have never seen or heard of. Get Out still surprising me with getting a nomination. The movie wasn't that great to beginning with.

    How in the hell did Get Out get so many nominations? It does not deserve it. It was a fun horror but it was kinda ruined by the failed attempt at humour with the best friend plot line.
    And really Meryl Streep again?
