Predictions (10/9):

With The Shape of Water and Three Billboards emerging out of Venice and Telluride as early favorites, it’s still anyone’s game. With no true frontrunner in sight, Dunkirk still feels like the film to beat. But will competition from The Darkest Hour (which tells the same story from a different vantage point) steal its thunder? And will Netflix be able to finally push into the narrative Oscar race with MudboundCall Me By Your Name seems to be the film people are the most passionate about, but don’t forget about Get Out, which made a ton of money and is still the most critically acclaimed film of the year.
