CONTEST: The Results!

Well, another Oscar morning has come and gone, bringing another list full of surprises. While "The Shape of Water", "Dunkirk" and "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" were the expected leaders among the nominees, it was "Phantom Thread" that turned the most heads with its impressive 6 nominees, notably grabbing unexpected slots in Best Picture and Best Director. The race is far from over. In terms of our collective predictions for this year's Film Actually Oscar Contest, none of us anticipated the nods for "Kong: Skull Island" in Visual Effects, "Victoria & Abdul" in Makeup & Hairstyling and the aforementioned directing nomination for Paul Thomas Anderson. But otherwise, there were several strong showings this year and a new champion.

Additionally, there was one bonus prize winner:

Trevor for predicting "Abacus: Small Enough to Jail" for Best Documentary Feature.

And that's a wrap! Thanks again for playing and I hope to see you all again next year.
