Were there any new Williams themes in it? I'm not saying there weren't, but I saw it twice and nothing jumped out. Loved what he did with the old stuff and Rey's theme, but I thought I recognized everything.

Really hope it wins these two, I've seen Edgar Wright really campaigning on his Instagram for Baby Driver to take the sound categories and any other year I'd agree but for me Last Jedi has more interesting use of sound (beyond the music and action scenes).
I suspect it will win Original Score and Blade Runner 2049 will take Visual Effects.
Honestly this year continues my trend of caring less and less about the Oscars (and Awards shows in general).

Agreed about your Oscar caring. I'm right there with ya.

I'd be really happy to see TLJ and Dunkirk split the sound awards. It was my favorite aspect of both of those movies.

Btw, Neil, the Razzies have officially rendered themselves pointless by putting Jennifer Lawrence up for Worst Actress, presumably just to piss people off. She's great in mother!.

I don't care exactly but I think this is one of the most interesting and varied set of nominees in years.

Agreed for the most part, but them letting the whole academy vote for Animated Feature was a HUGE mistake haha. There's some stuff I'd like to see on there, but mostly I'm pretty stoked that a lot of my favorites of the year got nods.

I care only because getting an Oscar nomination or a win undeniably bumps attention for that movie, and some movies are way more deserving of public spotlight than others. Can movies truly be ranked by quality? Is it a fair system? Does it mean something in the cosmic sense? Probably no all around. But it's nice to see films filled with passion, diversity, and originality get recognition & a bump at the box office - especially when you've got a (however distant) connection to some of the players involved.

Plus it's just fun to see & hear filmmakers & actors all gather for a night and talk about their craft, each other, etc. I think if you consider it as a general celebration of film and less of a direct competition for some trophy, you'll get more enjoyment out of the whole thing.

Plus I want one.

You are right, Rocco. That post would have been better left un-posted. It did not positively contribute. My bad. Thanks for your (and everyone else's) patience.

We got The Shape Of Water, Lady Bird, and Three Billboards at my little cinema because of the Oscar nominations, and we've sold several shows of The Shape Of Water out. So these awards can abso-lutely stay.

Plus I want Marc to get one.

Just to be clear I understand why they're relevant and agree they can be a great boost to films that otherwise wouldn't be seen as widely.
It's just that personally, over the years, I care less about who wins. I used to get caught up in the drama of it all and be really disappointed if something I loved got snubbed <i>(The Social Network, grrr)</i>. I would get a upset at how "unfair" they were and annoyed at the limited variety of films that won.
Whereas now I have a bit more perspective, it's great for the films that win but I'm not gonna get too wrapped up in it.
As a child I thought winning 'Best Picture' meant you had objectively made the best film that year.
