90th Academy Awards

Nominations Thu 23.Jan.18 • Awards Sun 4.Mar.18

Rich's comments: There are oddly very few outright snubs in this year's Oscar nominations list, which kind of makes it feel like it was put together by committee rather than by voters. There should have bee more The Florida Project, something for Wonder Woman, and perhaps let Meryl and Denzel sit out a year. And by the time of the ceremony, the winners were all rather predictable, without a single proper upset. (The only mild one was Icarus.) The Shape of Water is a lovely film, but I think there are five better films on that Best Picture list. But it was great to see long-overdue recognition for Roger Deakins and James Ivory.
