Why 'Get Out' is the future of the Oscars

Why 'Get Out' is the future of the Oscars

Every year's telecast includes some purple prose about how the Academy remains committed to defending the sanctity of art for its own sake as well as the public's, how grown-up movies can still sneak in among the adolescent blockbuster giants.

Apart from that, Comedian Jimmy Kimmel will host for a second consecutive year, making him the first person to host back-to-back ceremonies since Billy Crystal in 1997 and 1998. With cinematic masterpieces such as "Lady Bird" and "The Shape of Water", the competition this year is intense.

Best Supporting Actor: Sam Rockwell is a substantial favorite (over 1-to-8 odds) to win in this category for his performance in - you guessed it - "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri".

They are sent to all 25 Oscar nominees in the acting and directing categories in the week leading up to the big night and, yes, celebrities are taxed on the fair market value of what they use or redeem.

No call to wear black gowns went out in advance of the Oscars, though the movement will nearly certainly be referenced before and during the ceremony - especially since vocal #MeToo supporters like Ashley Judd, Laura Dern and Nicole Kidman are scheduled presenters. So perhaps it's not surprising that 62% of the public have seen no Best Picture nominee.

I feel like Armond White spoiling the ideal score; TT thinks Sally Hawkins should win ("a wonderful performance. without saying a word); "I'm one of those who didn't get on the Three Billboards hype train. but the acting in the film from top to bottom was probably the best of the season" - JN; "I'd rather see it go to Sally Hawkins for The Shape of Water or Margot Robbie for I, Tonya".

However, the strongest candidate for this category is "The Post".

The film has been the most popular Best Picture nominee among viewers as well.

Outliers such as Jordan Peele's racially-motivated frightener, "Get Out" and Greta Gerwig's coming-of-age girl-power biopic, "Lady Bird", can't be counted out just yet either.

International Olympic Committee to keep doping ban on Russian Federation for Winter Olympics closing ceremony
The opening ceremony was preceded by legal challenges as 45 Russian athletes appealed against the IOC's refusal to invite them. The PyeongChang Olympics have largely been a disaster for Russian Federation .

This film, directed by Guillermo del Toro and starring Sally Hawkins, is about a mute woman who falls in love with a river monster that is being experimented on by the USA government.

If there is any silver lining, it could be that the Academy seems to be leaning towards rewarding more untraditional Oscar nominations, as one voter revealed.

One of the few films to garner a 99 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, top critics: HuffPo, Vanity Faire and Fandango, are all forecasting a last minute upset that could anoint "Get Out" with the Oscar's highest honor. All three deserve to win.

"I was like, I couldn't even say anything...'I got to call you later, '" Peele tells ABC News.

The 22-year-old was widely unknown prior to his appearance in the film "Call Me by Your Name". I love the perspective the performances were fantastic and the the movie delivered. This is the most competitive category out of all of them because you have "Get Out", "Lady Bird", and "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri". Thankfully, because his career is just starting off, he will probably have the opportunity to win this category in the future.

McDormand's performance is certainly compelling as she plays a mother attempting to find her deceased daughter's murderer.

Another feature of this season: No one really knows who is going to win best picture.

Disney has done it again with their film "Coco".
