The Shape of Water Wins the PGA

The Producers Guild of America chose The Shape of Water as their Best Picture last night. The PGA winner usually puts a film at frontrunner status for the Oscar for Best Picture. This year, not so much. The Shape of Water failed to get a SAG nomination. SAG membership is all actors as well as the majority of the Oscar voters. If the actors aren’t behind The Shape of Water, it’s hard to imagine it winning Best Picture. No film has won Best Picture without a SAG nomination since Braveheart in 1995.

This may be the year that the SAG stat gets broken, if indeed The Shape of Water is the frontrunner. We know that Guillermo Del Toro will most likely win the DGA and the Oscar for Best Director. What we don’t know is if it will be a split year when Director and Picture go to separate films. This year is ripe for a split. Del Toro wins Director and Get Out or Lady Bird win Best Picture. Three Billboards could also sneak in there, but it looks to be too divisive to win.

Oscar Nominations Announced on Tuesday January 23rd

The 90th Academy Awards nominations in all 24 Oscar categories will be announced in a two-part, live presentation on January 23.

The process will go out via global live stream on Oscars.com and Oscars.org, a satellite feed and local broadcasters.

The announcement will combine live presentations with pre-taped category introductions, which will be featured in the first half of the announcement.

At 5:22am Pacific Time the nominees will be announced in the following categories: cinematography, costume design, film editing, make-up and hairstyling, original score, production design, animated short film, live action short film, sound editing, sound mixing, and visual effects.

At 5:38:30am Pacific Time, the nominees will be announced in the following categories: actor in a leading role, actor in a supporting role, actress in a leading role, actress in a supporting role, animated feature film, directing, documentary feature, documentary short subject, foreign language film, original song, best picture, adapted screenplay and original screenplay.

The 90th Academy Awards will take place on March 4.

Critics’ Choice Awards Winners


The Critics’ Choice Awards were handed out by the Broadcast Film Critics Association on Thursday night. They could be a preview of the Academy Awards. These Critics’ Choice have a reputation as one of the importanct awards to win leading up to the Oscars. The 300 plus members of the BFCA have chosen 13 of the last 22 Best Picture Oscar winners. They also chose 17 eventual academy winners for Best Directot and 15 Best Actor, 12 Best Actress, 12 Supporting Actor and 15 Supporting Actress winners.

The Critics’ Choice Awards categories have six nominees, giving them a better channce at picking eventual Oscar winners.

The Shape of Water led the charge whith four awards, including Picture and Best Director (Guillermo del Toro). The Golden Globe pick for Best Drama, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, won Best Ensemble at the Critics’ Choice Awards. Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell won both the Globe and the Critics’ Choice and greatly increasing their Oscar odds. Lady Bird had 8 nominations, but was completely shut out of any wins.
