Let's get the major gaps out of the way: I have not seen the following list of films that were nominated for Oscars, excluding short films, of which I have seen none:

  • Call Me By Your Name
  • Darkest Hour
  • The Post
  • Roman J. Israel, Esq.
  • All the Money in the World
  • The Boss Baby
  • The Breadwinner
  • Ferdinand
  • Loving Vincent
  • Abacus: Small Enough to Jail
  • Faces Places
  • Icarus
  • Last Men in Aleppo
  • Strong Island
  • A Fantastic Woman
  • The Insult
  • Loveless
  • On Body and Soul
  • The Square
  • Marshall
  • The Greatest Showman
  • Victoria and Abdul
  • Wonder
  • Kong: Skull Island

With that out of the way, here is what I would like to have happen at the 90th Oscars:

  • Best Picture - Lady Bird
  • Lead Actor - Daniel Kaluuya, Get Out
  • Lead Actress - Sally Hawkins, The Shape of Water
  • Supporting Actor - Willem Dafoe, The Florida Project
  • Supporting Actress - Laurie Metcalf, Lady Bird
  • Director - Paul Thomas Anderson, Phantom Thread
  • Animated Feature - Coco
