2017 Oscar Predictions: July Update

So, I hardly made any changes this month. I think I made seven changes in total. Next month should be more eventful, as by then, we’ll know exactly where Dunkirk stands in this race.

BEST PICTURE

Detroit
Downsizing
Dunkirk
The Greatest Showman
Molly’s Game
Mudbound
The 
Papers
Victoria And Abdul
Wonderstruck

No change, This is going to be a really tight year. I know that Dunkirk seems like an odd choice for a Best Picture winner, but none of the other ones really seem to fit. We’ll know soon enough whether or not Dunkirk is a serious contender.

BEST DIRECTOR

Michael Gracey – The Greatest Showman
Todd Haynes – Wonderstruck
Christopher Nolan – Dunkirk
Dee Rees – Mudbound
Steven Spielberg – The Papers

No change. Can I just point out, after The Greatest Showman trailer came out, I’m shocked by the number of people who say, “Well, this is no longer an Oscar contender.” Did we see the same trailer here? This movie looks amazing.

One thought on “2017 Oscar Predictions: July Update

  1. Just realized I completely forgot to add Day Lewis for Phantom Thread. I don’t know how I forgot that, but I make it a rule not to go back and update prediction articles once they’ve been uploaded. You’ll see him next month.
