And the Oscar goes to…
Call Me By Your Name Darkest Hour Dunkirk Get Out Lady Bird Phantom Thread The Post The Shape of Water Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Why you care: It’s the first legit genre movie to win Best Picture in over a decade, since Return of the King. It’s a movie about a woman who falls in love with a mysterious fish-man-creature, which is almost exactly the sort of weirdness that the Academy never recognizes.
Dunkirk Get Out Lady Bird Phantom Thread Guillermo del Toro, The Shape of Water
Why you care: Because Guillermo del Toro is a true nerd. His last film before The Shape of Water was a gothic horror-fantasy, and his last film before that was about people who use giant robots to beat up giant monsters.
The Big Sick Jordan Peele, Get Out Lady Bird The Shape of Water Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Why you care: Because Get Out is the movie of the moment, a phenomenal horror film that’s about so much more than scares. Also, it’s a huge honor for a first-time filmmaker.
Dunkirk Phantom Thread The Shape of Water Star Wars: The Last Jedi Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Why you care: Because it’s a big win for a big-time genre movie, even if maaaaybe it wasn’t the best choice in the category.
The Boss Baby The Breadwinner Coco Ferdinand Loving Vincent
Why you care: Obviously, Pixar movies dominate this category because, well, they’re Pixar. But the wonderful Coco really did earn this Oscar.
“Mighty River,” Mudbound “Mystery of Love,” Call Me By Your Name “Remember Me,” Coco “Stand Up For Something,” Marshall “This Is Me,” The Greatest Showman
Why you care: Most people thought The Greatest Showman was going to win, but Pixar pulled out a victory with a moving, catchy song.
Blade Runner 2049 Darkest Hour Dunkirk Mudbound The Shape of Water
Why you care: Roger Deakins, the winner, has been nominated numerous times before and shot some of your favorite movies including Skyfall, The Big Lebowski, A Beautiful Mind, and more. To see him win for such a major scifi film makes it even better.
Blade Runner 2049 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Kong: Skull Island Star Wars: The Last Jedi War for the Planet of the Apes
Why you care: This was a tough category but the winner was one of the most visually impressive films of the year, and a damn good movie, too.
