The production makes you adore this film even though you’re not a real fan of this kind of movie.

Even though it’s been released in the February 2017, Universal’s Get Out is joining the race. It may not win but certainly, lock itself in Best Picture nomination. A horror movie is still unequally considered on this kind of award, but Get Out is certainly one of the best 2017 movies.

the gay romance movie Call Me By Your Name has been rocketing through 2017.

Besides the Florida Project, A24 has brought the Lady Bird movie to the Best Picture-winning chance. The film is emotional and funny, when it’s released, it met the high expectation built in huge buzz during the promotion. The Lady Bird doesn’t only compete in Best Picture categories but also the Best Director and Best Original Screenplay categories.
Netflix surprisingly also join this race with Mudbound which has gained a very positive response and reviews. As the Mudbound is released through streaming platform instead of theatres, the reception seems to be pretty low. You can’t find a proper review about the Mudbound through mainstream media. However, Dee Ree and the casts have joined the Netflix to extensively promote this great movie. The Netflix give a wide access to Academy voters to watch the movie in a very easy way. If the things go right, you’ll see Mudbound joining the Best Picture Race.
20th Century Fox’s The Post brought tremendous figures in the competition including the Steven Spielberg as director, Meryl Streep, and the best actor in the world, Tom Hanks. They’re actually loved by the Academy, but this time the movie has grown up as it has political relevance to the recent state’s constellation. The timing is just perfect and makes the Post gained a very high attention from audiences last year.
Guillermo del Toro brings two movies on this race, the Mudbound and of course the Shape of Water. Toro has brought mind-blowing sci-fi fairy tale telling the story of a mute woman who loves the amphibian man, Merman. Oscar seems to be unfamiliar with this kind of movies. However, as the movie has been released and showed great reception, the Shape of Water will attract many Academy voters.
