The Noble Renard

Great amount of love for Get Out! And lots of technical awards love for Bladerunner 2049, which is highly, highly, highly deserved. If Roger Deakins doesn’t win for cinematography for that movie it’ll be a travesty.

Also, major kudos to Kumail Nanjiani and Emily Gordon for the Big Sick nomination in screenplay. So glad for them!

Edit: Oooh... my predictions:

Supporting Actor - Sam Rockwell

Supporting Actress - Probably Allison Janney, but I’m going to put a pretty high chance for Laurie Metcalf to beat her.

Best Actor - Daniel Day-Lewis - It’s his last film. They’re not going to not give it to him.

Best Actress - Frances McDormand or Saoirse Ronan

Best Director - Nolan. Because, Nolan.

Best Picture - I know that Three Billboards has been cleaning up at the awards show, but I wonder if there might be backlash. So I’m going to actually go with something else; Lady Bird or Call Me By Your Name. But could be Dunkirk. This is a hard year to predict Best Picture, honestly.
