Canada will be well represented at Sunday's Academy Awards, with many homegrown nominees in contention for "The Shape of Water".

The 2018 Oscar season has been a roller coaster ride, with multiple Best Picture frontrunners running neck-and-neck, with first one than another, than another predicted to nab the gold. One imagines that as well as firing everyone involved in that memorable disaster, they'll have quadruple-checked everything before those envelopes are opened this year. British screenwriters who don't belong to the American guilds still win Oscars. She receives a standing ovation, prompting her to joke that "you're all only standing because I fell and that was embarrassing". This feature will, without a doubt, take home the Oscar for Best Animated Feature.

DJC thinks Get Out ought to win. However, I don't see it emerging victorious in any of the categories it's nominated in.

Best Picture: With odds slightly better than 50/50 (50-to-59, specifically), black-comedy crime film "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" is a slight favorite ahead of "The Shape of Water", which stands at 33-to-20. With cinematic masterpieces such as "Lady Bird" and "The Shape of Water", the competition this year is intense. I'm happy that it ultimately did garner six total nominations.

Sometimes, as when Martin Scorsese won for The Departed, there's just a feeling that it's someone's "turn" to win.

Bank Governor warns on cryptocurrency risks
Carney also outlined some of the potential advantages of cryptocurrency, the underlying technologies of which he described as "exciting".

"Darkest Hour" will claim two Oscars for leading man Gary Oldman and the makeup and hairstylists who transformed him into Winston Churchill.

Making a final prediction is hard.

Except that Darkest Hour and its recently released ilk such as The Theory of Everything and The Imitation Game never really made it into the game. Her performance as a bereaved mother hell-bent on obtaining justice for her daughter is the epicentre of a compelling drama, and her interactions particularly with Woody Harrelson as the beleaguered police chief have right earned her great praise. The Shape of Water and the next-most-nominated film, Dunkirk (with eight nods), fall into the Goliath role on merit of their heftier budgets and stylistic pyrotechnics, the former boasting an aesthetically sophisticated softshoe number and the latter a three-front wartime assault.

Christopher Plummer stars in "All the Money in the World".

Despite this rule, two very prominent people managed to get their hands on an award.

Supporting Actress: Allison Janney, I, Tonya (SB, JB, DJC, DL, PM, Joe, Jay, BR); Laurie Metcalf, Lady Bird (JN, TT); Mary J. Blige, Mudbound (KM).

It's not always just about her style either.

Vicky Krieps and Daniel Day-Lewis star in Phantom Thread. "I'm proud of myself because I actually watched four foreign films this year" - JN. "Get Out" will take the original screenplay award, "Call Me By Your Name" the adapted one and "Phantom Thread" will prevail in costume design. I think we get Frances McDormand. I'm surprised no one went for Greta Gerwig's Lady Bird. Fewer than one in ten have seen each of the other nominees.

Best Director: Guillermo del Toro of The Shape of Water is a clear victor of the category. If he finally wins he deserves it for Blade Runner 2049. There has to be a victor, though, and it's not necessarily the best picture that wins the top award. You know, we thought oh it's a comedy, it's from Jordan Peele, I saw "Keanu" I've seen "Key and Peele" - and this is just on a completely different level, with an fantastic performance from Daniel Kaluuya. Oh, and spare a thought for The hunch is that despite the hype and the cast involved, it might end up winning nothing at all. This is the most competitive category out of all of them because you have "Get Out", "Lady Bird", and "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri". Otherwise, sit back, relax and look forward to finding out just how wrong a self-proclaimed "expert" can be.
