*Winners will appear in bold*


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

Commentary: While it would have been great for Get Out to win this award, The Shape of Water couldn’t be more deserving. This is a beautiful movie about love, acceptance and passion in many forms.


Sally Hawkins, The Shape of Water
Frances McDormand, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Margot Robbie, I, Tonya
Saoirse Ronan, Lady Bird
Meryl Streep, The Post

Commentary: This was Frances McDormand’s prize to lose, but she won it like all the other awards she did this year.


Timothee Chalamet, Call Me by Your Name
Daniel Day-Lewis, Phantom Thread
Daniel Kaluuya, Get Out
Gary Oldman, Darkest Hour
Denzel Washington, Roman J. Israel, Esq.

Commentary: Was there any way that Gary Oldman wasn’t going to win this? He was incredible, so of course he won.


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

Commentary: Guillermo del Toro worked wonders with a small budget. It’s a beautiful movie, and it makes you shocked that a movie about a woman falling in love with a fish man made it to this point. That’s magical.


The Big Sick, Emily V. Gordon & Kumail Nanjiani
Get Out, Jordan Peele
Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig
The Shape of Water, Guillermo del Toro & Vanessa Taylor
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Martin McDonagh

Commentary: Oh boy, could this mean that Get Out is going to get Best Picture? This is a big deal and a deserved win.


Call Me by Your Name, James Ivory
The Disaster Artist, Scott Neustadter & Michael H. Weber
Logan, Screenplay by Scott Frank & James Mangold and Michael Green; Story by James Mangold
Molly’s Game, Aaron Sorkin
Mudbound, Virgil Williams and Dee Rees

Commentary: James Ivory wrote a beautiful story of love found and lost just as easily, and while every other script was just as deserving, it’s hard to argue with the fact that this was the best. Sorry, Aaron Sorkin.


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

Commentary: Another predicted win confirmed after the long road Allison Janney had winning every other conceivable award for Best Supporting Actress. She’s had an award like this coming for a long time.


Willem Dafoe, The Florida Project
Woody Harrelson, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Richard Jenkins, The Shape of Water
Christopher Plummer, All the Money in the World
Sam Rockwell, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Commentary: This was expected since Sam Rockwell has been sweeping this award all over the place, and it’s a deserving win for one of the best performances in his career.


“Mighty River” (Mudbound)
“The Mystery of Love” (Call Me by Your Name)
“Remember Me” (Coco)
“Stand Up for Something” (Marshall)
“This Is Me” (The Greatest Showman)

Commentary: The performance of “This Is Me” was incredible, but the song from Coco is just beautiful on another level.


Dunkirk (Hans Zimmer)
Phantom Thread (Jonny Greenwood)
The Shape of Water (Alexandre Desplat)
Star Wars: The Last Jedi (John Williams)
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (Carter Burwell)

Commentary: It would have been amazing if Jonny Greenwood won for Phantom Thread, but the score for The Shape of Water s absolutely stunning.


Blade Runner 2049 (Roger Deakins)
Darkest Hour (Bruno Delbonnel)
Dunkirk (Hoyte van Hoytema)
Mudbound (Rachel Morrison)
The Shape of Water (Dan Laustsen)

Commentary: Finally! Roger Deakins gets the award he’s deserved for years! And it likely won’t be his last.


Baby Driver (Jonathan Amos & Paul Machliss)
Dunkirk (Lee Smith)
I, Tonya (Tatiana S. Riegel)
The Shape of Water (Sidney Wolinsky)
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (Jon Gregory)

Commentary: Another huge technical win for Dunkirk, which likely means it won’t be taking home any of the bigger awards. But we’ll see how it plays out.


A Fantastic Woman, Chile
The Insult, Lebanon
Loveless, Russia
On Body and Soul, Hungary
The Square, Sweden

Commentary: This was the favorite foreign film to win, and many people thought it should have been a Best Picture nomination.


The Boss Baby
The Breadwinner
Loving Vincent

Commentary: It was a weak year for animated fare, so of course Pixar had to take it this year with this wonderful film.


Blade Runner 2049, John Nelson, Gerd Nefzer, Paul Lambert and Richard R. Hoover
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Christopher Townsend, Guy Williams, Jonathan Fawkner and Dan Sudick
Kong: Skull Island, Stephen Rosenbaum, Jeff White, Scott Benza and Mike Meinardus
Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Ben Morris, Mike Mulholland, Neal Scanlan and Chris Corbould
War for the Planet of the Apes, Joe Letteri, Daniel Barrett, Dan Lemmon and Joel Whist

Commentary: Creating the realistic world of futuristic Los Angeles was no easy feat, but making it look gorgeous in a way that is distinct from the original is even more impressive. Incredible work all around. It’s a shame that War for the Planet of the Apes didn’t win this year though.


Beauty and the Beast, Production Design: Sarah Greenwood; Set Decoration: Katie Spencer
Blade Runner 2049, Production Design: Dennis Gassner; Set Decoration: Alessandra Querzola
Darkest Hour, Production Design: Sarah Greenwood; Set Decoration: Katie Spencer
Dunkirk, Production Design: Nathan Crowley; Set Decoration: Gary Fettis
The Shape of Water, Production Design: Paul Denham Austerberry; Set Decoration: Shane Vieau and Jeff Melvin

Commentary: The fact that this movie looks like it cost way more than it actually cost, the production design deserved this Oscar through and through. The movie is stunning, and it’s thanks to this team’s collaboration with Guillermo del Toro.


Baby Driver, Julian Slater, Tim Cavagin and Mary H. Ellis
Blade Runner 2049, Ron Bartlett, Doug Hemphill and Mac Ruth
Dunkirk, Mark Weingarten, Gregg Landaker and Gary A. Rizzo
The Shape of Water, Christian Cooke, Brad Zoern and Glen Gauthier
Star Wars: The Last Jedi, David Parker, Michael Semanick, Ren Klyce and Stuart Wilson

Commentary: The sheer scale of this movie is enough of a reason for this film to get Best Sound Mixing. But besides that, the work done to bring together all of the sounds, music and more to make World War II echo in our ears was outstanding. Again, Baby Driver would have been a great winner too.


Baby Driver, Julian Slater
Blade Runner 2049, Mark Mangini and Theo Green
Dunkirk, Richard King and Alex Gibson
The Shape of Water, Nathan Robitaille and Nelson Ferreira
Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Matthew Wood and Ren Klyce

Commentary: Considering the wall of sound needed to make this movie feel so realistic and booming, this win absolutely makes sense. But seeing Baby Driver get this award would have been great too.


Abacus: Small Enough to Jail
Faces Places
Last Men in Aleppo
Strong Island

Commentary: I’ve yet to see Icarus, but this movie will be on my list to watch immediately now. It was the favorite to win, so this was not a surprise.


Beauty and the Beast (Jacqueline Durran)
Darkest Hour (Jacqueline Durran)
Phantom Thread (Mark Bridges)
The Shape of Water (Luis Sequeira)
Victoria & Abdul (Consolata Boyle)

Commentary: The wonderful fashions of Reynolds Woodcock absolutely deserved this award for the stunning dresses and much more on screen in Paul Thomas Anderson’s gorgeous film.


Darkest Hour, Kazuhiro Tsuji, David Malinowski and Lucy Sibbick
Victoria & Abdul, Daniel Phillips and Lou Sheppard
Wonder, Arjen Tuiten

Commentary: This was another foregone conclusion. The make-up that turned Gary Oldman into Winston Churchill was astounding and so lifelike.


Dear Basketball, Glen Keane and Kobe Bryant
Garden Party, Victor Caire and Gabriel Grapperon
Lou, Dave Mullins and Dana Murray
Negative Space, Max Porter and Ru Kuwahata
Revolting Rhymes, Jakob Schuh and Jan Lachauer

Commentary: Another predicated win. This is a wonderful, unconventional animated movie that even non-sports fans can enjoy. Also, Kobe Bryant has an Oscar? Crazy!


DeKalb Elementary, Reed Van Dyk
The Eleven O’Clock, Derin Seale and Josh Lawson
My Nephew Emmett, Kevin Wilson, Jr.
The Silent Child, Chris Overton and Rachel Shenton
Watu Wote/All of Us, Katja Benrath and Tobias Rosen

Commentary: This is one I haven’t seen, but it sounds like a heartwarming film, and it was lovely that the filmmaker used sign language during her speech.


Edith+Eddie, Laura Checkoway and Thomas Lee Wright
Heaven is a Traffic Jam on the 405, Frank Stiefel
Heroin(e), Elaine McMillion Sheldon and Kerrin Sheldon
Knife Skills, Thomas Lennon
Traffic Stop, Kate Davis and David Heilbroner

Commentary: This was the first real surprise of the night. Having not seen any of the documentary shorts, all I can say is well done.
