2018 Academy Awards: My Winners

On January 23rd, the 90th edition of the Oscar's Nominees and Nominations have been announced!
This years movies are more than ever various in topics and some have been welcome by both critics and audience, so I'm very curious and, frankly, uncertain on who's going to win...

Last year, I scored 2 out of 8 (Best Director and Best Animated Movies), definitely not a good result and this year chosing will be even worse, given the outstanding interpretations all the Nominees portrayed! 

But I'll try it anyway!  

So let's begin!

Best Picture:

Darkest Hours
Get Out
Lady Bird
The Post
Phantom Thread
The Shape of Water
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Call Me by Your Name

Christopher Nolan - Dunkirk
Jordan Peele - Get Out
Greta Gerwig - Lady Bird
Paul Thomas Anderson - Phantom Thread
Guillermo del Toro - The Shape of Water

Daniel Day-Lewis - Phantom Thread
Daniel Kaluuya - Get Out
Gary Oldman - Darkest Hour ()
Denzel Washington - Roman J. Israel, Esq

Best Actress in a Leading Role:
Sally Hawkins - The Shape of Water
Frances McDormand - Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri ()

Saoirse Ronan - Lady Bird
Meryl Streep - The Post

Mary J. Blige - Mudbound
Allison Janney - I, Tonya
Lesley Manville - Phantom Thread
Laurie Metcalf - Lady Bird 
Octavia Spencer - The Shape of Water

The Breadwinner
Loving Vincent

Best Foreign Language Film:
A Fantastic Woman (Chile)
Loveless (Russia)
The Insult (Lebanon)
On Body and Soul (Hungary)
The Square (Sweden)

To be honest, I've seen not even half of the movies that are nominated, but anyway it's obvious that I root for a female director to win, since the last one who took home the Oscar has been Kathryn Bigelow in 2010 for "The Hurt Locker", so....go Greta!!
If Daniel Day-Lewis wins, it will be his 4th Academy Awards, always in the Best Leading Actor category, it has to be some kind of record. This year's nomination in the 18th for Meryl Streep as Best Actress in a Leading role and the 22nd in general...another record!

So yes, this 2018 Academy Awards will be very interesting and I can't wait to see the dresses on the red carpet!!

I'm curious....who are your winners?
