As we countdown to the 2019 Oscars which is set to hold in February, the nomination list has rolled out, and the honest posters of all the movies in contention for the Oscars this year have been unveiled.
We all know that the awards season doesn’t really start until the Honest Posters are unveiled – and this year’s batch is better than ever. But let's take a look at the honest posters of all the movies that were nominated for the Academy Award in 2018's best picture category.
What's Phantom Thread even about? It's complicated, but the movie sure has a bunch of beautiful shots of dresses.
The Shape of Water
This movie is about a romance between a woman and a fish man. Not everyone thinks that's OK.
Get Out doesn't feel very fictional. Like Jordan Peele said, the movie is more like a documentary rather than fiction.
"Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri," faced backlash because it apparently unjustly redeemed a racist character.
In a year where unconventional movies like "Get Out" and "Lady Bird" are honored, "The Post" does seem like traditional Oscar bait.
Dunkirk has many gorgeous shots of beaches, but it's extremely stressful. It's hard to enjoy the south of France when German bomber planes are flying overhead.
"Darkest Hour" is about Winston Churchill's political life during the battle at Dunkirk, looking at things from another angle. It's not as interesting.
"Lady Bird" is a masterpiece, so there's little to criticize, but it does share a lot of themes with Richard Linklater's "Boyhood."
Call Me by Your Name
Call Me by Your Name is a sunny trip through the Italian countryside, but there's a scene involving a peach that has people talking.
I, Tonya" redeemed Margot Robbie from Suicide Squad. Nothing washes out the taste of a bad superhero movie than an Oscar-nominated biopic — even if it's a problematic one.
