3 reasons why Dunkirk won’t win Best Picture

If the Academy Awards were tomorrow, there’s little doubt that Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk would pull off a clean sweep. However, we’ve still got several months to go until Oscar Sunday and a lot can change within that time. Heck, if Moonlight’s triumph over La La Land proved anything, it’s that a lot can change in just a couple weeks. With that said, here are just a few reasons why Dunkirk probably won’t win Best Picture, even if it deserves the prize.

Why Good Time mustn’t be forgotten come awards season

It wouldn’t be at all surprising if Pattinson earned a Best Actor nomination for his riveting work here. Of course Pattinson isn’t the only reason why Good Time mustn’t be forgotten come awards season.

Why only three nominees for Best Makeup and Hairstyling?

After 1980’s The Elephant Man was overlooked for its jaw-dropping makeup effects, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences were influenced to create a new category to honor the film industry’s unsung makeup artists. Hairstylists were eventually included in this category as well. Over the years, however, members of this branch have only been able to nominate somewhere between two and three films. The one exception was in 1999 when four films got in (Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, Bicentennial Man, Life, and eventual winner Topsy-Turvy). Yet, five nominees have never been able to break through.
