I definitely haven't seen all the movies on the list. But just a comment on Dunkirk - it's a technically superb film, but I'm not sure I'd include it in the list of Best Picture.

Who will win? Does anyone care?

In many times, for the best motion picture, the audience favourites don't win, and that's because the winners are chosen by the Academy.
Most of people go to the movies to have fun, and in few ocassions, fun movies win.
For example for the 2015 nominees, as for myself, I had much more joy watching Whiplash, The Theory of Everything or The Imitation Game than the winner Birdman.

Usually I'm 50/50 watching Beat Picture nominees but this year I have zero interest. In fact I've never even heard of the rest until now.

I have seen Dunkirk, forced because it's Christopher Nolan but IDK what the big deal was all about.

I feel like Gary Oldman will win an oscar this year because he has been overlooked for such a long time.

That's the sad truth behind what you are saying.
Oldman may win because he's been overlooked in the past, but just like DiCaprio or Scorsese, they eventually won for good work, but not in anyway their best work.

I've seen Dunkirk (pretty good, not really sure it was Oscar-worthy), and Get Out (horri-bad). No idea how that one got picked as best picture, unless it was for the "diversity" content. Planning on seeing the rest before Oscar night.

I mostly agree. I love Nolan's films (even Interstellar!) and Dunkirk was a technical marvel but it really didn't register with me as Best Picture material. Same with Get Out; I had a great time with the film but Best Picture?? Get Out will be a huge underdog.

I haven't seen The Shape of Water but I think I'll put that next on my watch list. I heard it was quite good and Guillermo del Toro is pretty reliable in putting out decent material.

I watched The Shape of Water and liked it, felt a bit like an extended episode of the twilight zone, good acting and effects, no issues here if it wins.

I enjoyed Get Out but do agree it doesn't seem to fit the typical "best movie" mold. Mind you usually those nominated for best movies are not ones that I would ever watch anyway which perhaps speaks to my taste in movies :P I did however watch disaster artist over the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it! Thought it was hilarious. Though it is of course out of the running for anything due to Franco's shenanigans of course.

My two favourites of that bunch were Three Billboards and Call Me By Your Name. I think Three Billboards should be able to get the top prize, but Guillermo del Toro is the favourite to win Best Director.

I will not be watching the Academy Awards.

Why?

Because I do not know who the "Academy" is and on what basis
they determine "best" this, that or the other thing.

Why do I need some "industry experts" telling me what is "best" according to them?
It is all BS Progressive Propaganda and the lemmings eat it up.

For me movies are about ENTERTAINMENT but I see too much propaganda in these SJW movies that few people pay to see until the Hollywood publicity / propaganda machine tells people which movies to go see. Sad how many people then rush out to see the movie the "Academy" tells them to see.

Why is Dunkirk the only money earning movie to be nominated?

We the people have already voted with our money to reward the movies that we like

Box Office 2017
1 - Star Wars: The Last Jedi = $618,829,971
2 - Beauty and the Beast (2017) = $504,014,165
3 - Wonder Woman = $412,563,408
4 - Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 = $389,813,101
5 - Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle = $388,375,991
6 - Spider-Man: Homecoming = $334,201,140
7 - It = $327,481,748
8 - Thor: Ragnarok = $314,837,592
9 - Despicable Me 3 = $264,624,300
10 - Justice League = $228,905,810
11 - Logan = $226,277,068
12 - The Fate of the Furious = $226,008,385
13 - Coco = $208,123,394
14 - Dunkirk = $188,045,546


Best Movie nominations

Dunkirk ($188 m)
Get Out ($176 m)
The Post ($147 m worldwide)
The Shape of Water ($57 m)
Darkest Hour ($55 m)
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing ($52 m)
Lady Bird ($48 m
Phantom Thread ($20 m)
Call Me by Your Name ($17 m = crap movie)

For an older woman, I can't believe how attractive Margot Robbie's mother is. Beauty definitely runs in her family. WOW!!!
