      1. They didn’t, but the movies they lost against tended to be shoe-ins like Life of Pi and Jungle Book and naturally the Academy had to honour Planet of the Apes eventually. Marvel has been in line for the award for quite some time, and it already won with the guild. Sure, the voters of the academy might go for the Spielberg movie but Thanos has been all over the airwave and you need to be blind to not see what a technical achievement he on his own already is.

        And remember, Infinity War is pretty much 90% visuals effects, too. NONE of the scenes set in space are happen in real places, and Wakanda isn’t real either. If you really think about it you realize that the majority of the movie was shot in front of a green screen.

  1. I would love it if The Favourite gets as many awards as you predict. Personally I hope it grabs best picture too but I agree that Roma is probably going to take it. Rooting for Blackkklansman and First Man to get some love also.

  2. I would love to see The Favourite win best picture. It’s my second favourite film of 2018. Everything from the screenplay to the direction, the cinematography, the costume design, and acting was done amazingly. Although I do think that Roma will likely win best picture since not only does it have the same number of nominations as Roma, but it seems have to a lot more buzz than The Favourite.

    I personally wouldn’t want Roma to win best picture. It’s a well made film from a technical standpoint, but I personally found it to be underwhelming and boring. I don’t think it’s a bad film, but I don’t think it’s a great film either.
