Vote for your favorite Best Picture Nominee (2018 Oscars)

Welcome to the 9th annual DVDTalk Best Picture Oscar Poll!

Once again let's see how far apart we are from the Oscar voters. Keep in mind that this is a poll for our favorite movies and not an attempt to predict the actual Oscar winner.

I still need to see most of these, so I don't have an early opinion yet.

Previous DVDTalk poll winners and (Oscar winners):

2017: Hell or High Water (Moonlight)
2016: Mad Max: Fury Road (Spotlight)
2015: The Grand Budapest Hotel (Birdman)
2014: Gravity (12 Years A Slave)
2013: Django Unchained (Argo)
2012: Tree Of Life (The Artist)
2011: The Social Network (The King's Speech)
2010: Inglorious Basterds (The Hurt Locker)

So DVDTalk is 0/8 in picking winners?

No, the academy is 0-8 listening to our advice.

We arenít trying to predict the winner, weíre trying to pick a better winner. Most years weíve been successful.

I think we've picked the superior movie ever year, although 2014 is fairly even.

Sad to me that no film on this year's list is jumping out at me. Will probably do Lady Bird, but it really wasn't special.

Re: Vote for your favorite Best Picture Nominee (2018 Oscars)

I've seen everything except Darkest Hour and Phantom Thread. As it stands I'm having a tough time picking between Dunkirk and Call Me By Your Name. Maybe Phantom Thread will become the clear choice after I see it. I doubt i'll watch Darkest Hour.

edit: damn, I wish my 5000th post would have been something more memorable than this.

Interesting results so far. Iíve already had one person tell me that Shape of Water was the worst movie she ever saw. I will form my own opinion when I see it.

Heh, weíve all got some pretty good taste if I do say so myself. With the exception of 2012, which was a shitty year for BP nominees, I think weíve picked the better films.

People on this forum cream themselves over Guillermo Del Toro. Itís no surprise The Shape or Water is leading, and I assume will have the most votes when all is said and done.

I've only seen 4 out of the 9 candidates (Get Out, The Shape of Water, Three Billboards, and Dunkirk). I enjoyed all 4 to one degree or another, but Three Billboards was my favorite of them. That being said, I'm not really rooting for any particular one to win.

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

Almost there, catching up with all the nominees, so far I think Three Billboards has been my favorite. But I really enjoyed them all. No stinkers so far

I'm always a little surprised by the overwhelming love for Get Out. That said, I haven't seen enough of these to vote

I've only seen Dunkirk and Get Out, so not enough to vote either. Hoping to see Shape of Water and Three Billboards sometime before the Oscars.

Too bad there isn't a coordinated watching event in which you could pick some of these off.

I've only seen Darkest Hour, The Post and Get Out so far. I'll vote after I've got a few more checked off.

I loved Get Out and The Post.

Darkest Hour is really good, but not BP worthy.

Fair. And I think I would have liked Get Out more if I hadn't binged Atlanta shortly before seeing it.

Still need to see Call me and Lady Bird.

Not sure what I’d pick yet.

Probably Thread.

Well, I'm not super excited about any of the nominees this year. If I had to pick one, maybe Call Me By Your Name, but it's too European to win, I think. I guess I'd probably be most OK with Shape of Water winning. But really, just so long as Three Billboards doesn't win.

I bet Get Out gets Best Picture since it's in 3rd place in the poll.
