I just posted this in the General Movies Thread:

I'm pleased Lady Bird got the nod for a best picture nomination. I think if it didn't it would be fair to ask why, seeing as it's one of better received (and legit better movies) this year.

It seems like all the momentum is on Gary Oldman's side to pick up Best Actor, even if The Darkest Hour is a bit ropey.

The Darkest Hour is nothing outside of a solid Oscar bait performance. Loving how many awards the Shape of Water is up for although it not being nominated in the visual effects category is an odd choice.

I'm actually a little shocked at how many categories Get Out has been shortlisted for. I love the film but really didn't see a studio pushing it for Best Director / Actor.

I really hope The Silent Child picks up the short film.

I'm expecting Shape of Water to pick up a few of the more technical awards, but think it will fall short in the "main" categories.

Also suprised to see The Greatest Showman get overlooked, considering how last year was so focused around La La Land. I know it had mixed reviews from critics, but it's done well at the box office overall ($230m+)

I see Boss Baby is trending on Twitter because people are angry that it got nominated when Batman Lego didn't.

To those people, I politely invite them to fuck off.   No ill will toward BL, i've seen bits of it, raised a chuckle or two too, but I'd be my arse most of those claiming Boss Baby to be shit haven't the first fucking clue what a fun little film that is when you have an insight into living with children and the way their minds work.  

Why does everything have to be shit or great these days.  Why can't I like what I like, and vice versa without it descending into oneupmanship.

The internet innit? People lean towards extreme opinions in order to get noticed. In reality, very little is 'shit' or 'amazing', most stuff is perfectly OK but there's nothing fun in reading about an album/film/meal/whatever just being perfectly acceptable.

I'm astounded that Get Out is nominated for anything. Must be one of those "Goodfellas things" that I don't - and never will - get.

Margot Robbie for best actress for me. Absolutely outrageous performance as Tonya Harding.

EDIT - I must have seen Boss Baby sixteen times, and it's still a lovely little film. I can't say the same about Coco and I've only seen that twice.

Very valid point mate.  Money to be made in being appalled these days isn't there, like @Astro Hollywood wrote about so wonderfully recently, people have cottoned on to the fact that being a cunt can be quite the money spinner.

JM has nicked my post. I don't really care about awards but also noticed Boss Baby was trending. I thought it was great.

I'm glad to hear that fella. I can't watch the end without welling up a bit.  Or Charlotte's Web.  D'you know what, balls to having kids.  Ruined me it has.

Christopher Plummer -  All the Money in the World

I haven't seen this film, but is nomination purely for saving us from Spacey? Surely it can't be that good a standalone performance, considering?

It's hard to know, but I'd be surprised if some nominations weren't influenced by the current climate, rightly and wrongly.

As tin-eared as the Oscars are sometimes, I'm not so sure Casey Affleck would have fared so well if Manchester By The Sea came out a year later.

Who knows.

By all accounts he's excellent. I think the fact that it was such a rush job and yet he still managed to be that good has counted for a lot too. But he's a superb actor anyway, he only won an Oscar a few years ago for Beginners as well.
