    The Academy’s Visual Effects Branch Executive Committee voted on its preliminary list of 20, and, along with frontrunners “First Man,” “Avengers: Infinity War,” and “Ready Player One,” it included two surprise animated entries: Pixar’s “Incredibles 2” and Wes Anderson’s stop-motion “Isle of Dogs.” The last animated VFX nominee was Laika’s stop motion “Kubo and the Two Strings.” This Pixar entry marks the first time a CG animated feature has made it this far in the VFX race.

    Marvel’s Best Picture contender “Black Panther” also made the cut along with “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” and “Mary Poppins Returns.” However, Andy Serkis’ performance-captured “Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle,” picked up by Netflix, didn’t make the cut. Superhero movies “Deadpool 2” and “Venom” were also shut out.

    Later this month, the committee will whittle it down to 10 films (announced on December 17th), which will compete at the annual bakeoff.

    The films are listed below in alphabetical order:

    “Ant-Man and the Wasp”
    “Aquaman”
    “Avengers: Infinity War”
    “Black Panther”
    “Bumblebee”
    “Christopher Robin”
    “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”
    “First Man”
    “Incredibles 2”
    “Isle of Dogs”
    “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”
    “Mary Poppins Returns”
    “Mission: Impossible – Fallout”
    “Mortal Engines”
    “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms”
    “Paddington 2”
    “A Quiet Place”
    “Ready Player One”
    “Solo: A Star Wars Story”
    “Welcome to Marwen”

    Nominations will be announced on Tuesday, January 22, 2019. The 91st Oscars will be held on Sunday, February 24, 2019, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, and will be televised live on the ABC Television Network.
    If I were to guess, the five eventual nominees would be:
    • Aquaman
    • Avengers: Infinity War
    • Christopher Robin
    • First Man
    • Mission: Impossible – Fallout

    I'll say Aquaman takes it. Those underwater shots look stunning and beautiful.

    I think you might be spot on there. I will say that Mortal Engines is a dark horse. It has Jackson's name attached, so I wouldn't be surprised if they throw that film a bone just because of past work with LoTR.

    The trailer did not impress me at all, sorry to say. Looks way too generic and drab. Ready Player One might be another one, though. Or Marry Poppins Returns even.

    Yeah, there's something missing, I agree. Hollywood is having some major issues recently with high concept Sci-fi, see Jupiter Ascending and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.

    You might be right about Ready Player one for the same reasons why I mentioned that Mortal Engines might get a nomination.

    The Golden Globes—Hollywood’s annual Oscar-adjacent celebration of the beginning of awards season—announced their nominees Thursday morning with a predictable showering of love on films like A Star Is Born, The Favourite, Green Book, and Vice. The television nominations held a few more surprises as the members of the 90-odd Hollywood Foreign Press Association did their best to hack through the thicket of peak TV. But in both mediums, the Globes’ ultimate consideration has always been superstardom, and most categories were thus laden with famous names and blockbuster hits.

    The Globes divide their awards into “comedy or musical” and drama, but a couple of ostensible musicals (A Star Is Born and Bohemian Rhapsody) competed as dramas, while some of the leading comedies (Vice, Green Book, and The Favourite) are centered on dark and dramatic themes. Either way, most of the expected Oscar contenders were featured in one category or another, with the biggest snubs being acclaimed indie dramas like First Reformed, box-office disappointments like First Man, and Steve McQueen’s heist thriller Widows.

    In television, the Globes largely fêted streaming television and cable heavyweights like FX and HBO. Top nominees included the final season of The Americans, the Ryan Murphy shows American Crime Story and Pose, Netflix’s recent hits Bodyguard and The Kominsky Method, and Amazon’s Homecoming and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. The Globes often suffer from “shiny new toy” syndrome, lavishing nominations on new shows and forgetting past winners. Just as important is spotlighting big stars who can attend the January 6 ceremony, which will air on NBC at 8 p.m. EST and be hosted by Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg.

    In that regard, the TV categories were just as glitzy as the film ones. Julia Roberts, Jim Carrey, Michael Douglas, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Candice Bergen were among the television nominees, further proof that whatever wall once existed between the two mediums has all but vanished. Still, at the Globes, the movie awards are the main event, since they attempt to function as a preview for the coming Oscars (in television, the prime award remains the summer’s Emmy trophy).

    The big contenders, then, include Adam McKay’s Dick Cheney biopic Vice, which topped the field with six nominations despite still being embargoed for reviews; Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born, which has been a box-office sensation and cemented its Oscar-frontrunner status here; the dark royal comedy The Favourite, which nabbed acting nominations for all three of its female stars; and the crowd-pleasing race-relations comedy Green Book. Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman, a surprise summer hit, also had a good showing with four nominations, as did Disney’s upcoming Mary Poppins Returns.

    Alfonso Cuarón’s Roma, Netflix’s big awards player this year, was confined to the Foreign-Language Film category but also secured Best Director and Screenplay nominations. If Beale Street Could Talk, Barry Jenkins’s follow-up to the Oscar-winning Moonlight, was nominated for Best Picture, Best Screenplay, and Best Supporting Actress—a strong impression for a film that takes a subtler approach than some of the Globes’ big favorites. Perhaps the most baffling snub was of Sam Elliott, the dynamite supporting actor of A Star Is Born, who has been tipped for Oscar success. But the Globes have never synced up every category to the Academy Awards, and many other looming precursors—guild nominations, critics’ awards—will soon offer their own predictions.

    The full list of nominees:

    I know nobody really takes the Golden Globes seriously, but I think their nominations for film are a mess. I enjoyed Black Panther, but it's not BP worthy.

    No Sam Elliott for Star is Born? Come on. I knew they would forget about Toni Collette for Hereditary. I'm hoping the Academy doesn't do the same.

    So...Kevin Hart is out already. What in the world? When are people going to realize that anything you type online can come back to haunt you?

    Hopefully people are going to realize they can't just be dicks. It doesn't work out well.

    Hopefully. I'm waiting for all the people to come out and complain about everything being too PC. No. You made insensitive and inappropriate comments for the world to see, and now you live with the consequences. That's it.

    Agreed. He actually said "if I can prevent my son from being gay, I will". If that's not homophobic, I don't know what is. Being gay is not something you can "prevent". Even if it was eight years ago or whatever, he could've reacted differently. GLAAD made a very well stated response:

    https://www.foxnews.com/entertainmen...ophobic-tweets
    "Kevin Hart shouldn’t have stepped down; he should have stepped up," GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis said in a statement.

    "Hart's apology to LGBTQ people is an important step forward, but he missed a real opportunity to use his platform and the Oscars stage to build unity and awareness. We would still welcome that conversation with him," Ellis continued.
