  1. Whoof! It’s going to be tough to choose between the Incredibles 2 and Ralph Breaks the Internet for Best Animated Film.
    I saw both in the theater (don’t usually) and they were amazeballs. Lots of heart, good story, some teary eyed moments, no out of the blue plot twists that make you go “Huh? WTF?” but moments that make you go “Wow, didn’t see that coming.”

  2. That said, I fid it strange that in recent years, movies like The Martian or Get Out! have been classified as musicals/comedies, even though they’re neither, while this year there are two actual music films, Bohemian Rhapsody and A Star is Born, which are classified as drama.

  3. @Cora

    As I remember, in both the cases of The Martian and Get Out, that was deliberate jockeying by their respective studios to get them into categories where it was felt they would have better chances of winning.

  4. So I take it that Mary Poppins Returns has at least been previewed-to-critics? I haven’t seen any of word of it being released, but I know some films do staged openings.

  5. That’s what I was thinking also — but apparently movies get sneaked for awards. I suppose I can see a commercial purpose (giving advance boosts to films that will be running when lots of USians are on vacation), but it jarred given recent comments about unfair best-fiction-of-the-year lists coming out before the year was over.
