My 7th Annual Film Awards: The Winners and Rankings

dunkirk_banner2

And here we are once again. Remember that my top 5 in each category were the nominees unless otherwise noted. I’m listing my top 20 in each category except Picture, where I list 25. The nominees themselves, along with additional information on these categories, can be found here.

A quick key: * – Oscar nominee; ** – Golden Globe nominee but NOT Oscar nominated; *** – BAFTA nominee but not Oscar or Globe nominated; **** – SAG nominee.

And now, the winners:

Picture:

  1. Dunkirk*
  2. The Shape of Water*
  3. Blade Runner 2049
  4. The Killing of a Sacred Deer
  5. Phantom Thread*
  6. A Quiet Passion
  7. Columbus
  8. Get Out*
  9. Lady Macbeth***
  10. Detroit
  11. I, Tonya**
  12. The Big Sick
  13. Lady Bird*
  14. Kedi
  15. Molly’s Game
  16. Coco
  17. Star Wars: The Last Jedi
  18. Call Me by Your Name*
  19. The Little Hours
  20. Wonder Woman
  21. Mudbound
  22. The Post*
  23. Faces Places
  24. The Florida Project
  25. War for the Planet of the Apes

A much stronger top 5 than last year; the top 4 all would’ve won last year. A Quiet Passion is the best film not to make my top 5 since 2014. It’s also a very tight group, with only a 2-point drop from #1 to #10 and just a 4-point drop from #1 to #20. My top 12 get **** from me – one better than last year – and they’re all dramatic films, whereas three of my **** films last year were documentaries.

(UPDATE 7/8/2018: After rewatching The Killing of a Sacred Deer, I’ve moved it up in a few categories. No winners have changed and no nominees have lost their status.)

Oscar/BAFTA/Globe nominees outside of my top 25:

  • Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri (#35)
  • Darkest Hour (#41)
  • The Disaster Artist (#54)
  • The Greatest Showman (#70)

Director:

  1. Christopher Nolan, Dunkirk* 
  2. Guillermo Del Toro, The Shape of Water*
  3. Denis Villeneuve, Blade Runner 2049***
  4. Yorgos Lanthimos, The Killing of a Sacred Deer
  5. Paul Thomas Anderson, Phantom Thread*
  6. Kathryn Bigelow, Detroit 
  7. Terence Davies, A Quiet Passion 
  8. Jordan Peele, Get Out*
  9. Edgar Wright, Baby Driver 
  10. William Oldroyd, Lady Macbeth 
  11. Ben & Josh Safdie, Good Time
  12. Craig Gillespie, I, Tonya 
  13. Matt Reeves, War for the Planet of the Apes 
  14. Darren Aronofsky, mother! 
  15. Kogonada, Columbus 
  16. Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi 
  17. David Gordon Green, Stronger
  18. Greta Gerwig, Lady Bird*
  19. Julia Ducournau, Raw 
  20. Luca Guadagnino, Call Me by Your Name***

An easy win for Nolan, but Del Toro (the likely Oscar winner) will be a worthy choice indeed. Again, any of my top 4 would’ve won last year – and Bigelow, who can’t even crack the top 5, would’ve easily been nominated. Coincidentally, these are the second nominations in a row for both Lanthimos and Villeneuve; last year they came in 2nd and 4th, respectively.

Oscar/BAFTA/Globe/DGA nominees outside of my top 20:

  • Ridley Scott, All the Money in the World (#21)
  • Steven Spielberg, The Post (#25)
  • Martin McDonagh, Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri (#27)

Actor:

  1. Daniel Day-Lewis, Phantom Thread*
  2. Colin Farrell, The Killing of a Sacred Deer
  3. Gary Oldman, Darkest Hour*
  4. Daniel Kaluuya, Get Out*
  5. Timothée Chalamet, Call Me by Your Name*
  6. Denzel Washington, Roman J. Israel, Esq.*
  7. Jake Gyllenhaal, Stronger
  8. Christian Bale, Hostiles 
  9. Jeremy Renner, Wind River 
  10. Colin Farrell, The Beguiled 
  11. Robert Pattinson, Good Time
  12. Ryan Gosling, Blade Runner 2049 
  13. John Cho, Columbus 
  14. Vince Vaughn, Brawl in Cell Block 99 
  15. Algee Smith, Detroit 
  16. Garrett Hedlund, Mudbound 
  17. Jason Mitchell, Mudbound 
  18. Tom Hanks, The Post**
  19. Hugh Jackman, Logan 
  20. Jason Sudeikis, Colossal 

The five Oscar nominees are all in my top 6, which is impressive; it amuses me that Washington is my #6, since Farrell is his co-star in Roman J. Israel. Sadly, the awards groups largely overlooked Farrell, with only the European Film Awards and the Evening Standard British Film Awards nominating him at all.

It’s an easily win for Day-Lewis, and the list drops off a bit after Oldman, but my #4-14 are a very tight bunch, and I really hate to push Gosling so low; in a year like 2015 he’d have made my top 5, but this year is just too full – and the rest of the top 20 are no slouch either.

Oscar/BAFTA/Globe/SAG nominees outside of my top 20:

  • James Franco, The Disaster Artist (#22)
  • Steve Carell, Battle of the Sexes (#23)
  • Hugh Jackman, The Greatest Showman (#45)
  • Ansel Elgort, Baby Driver (#47)

Actress:

  1. Cynthia Nixon, A Quiet Passion
  2. Vicky Krieps, Phantom Thread 
  3. Jessica Chastain, Molly’s Game**
  4. Frances McDormand, Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri*
  5. Sally Hawkins, The Shape of Water*
  6. Nicole Kidman, The Killing of a Sacred Deer
  7. Haley Lu Richardson, Columbus 
  8. Saoirse Ronan, Lady Bird*
  9. Margot Robbie, I, Tonya*
  10. Florence Pugh, Lady Macbeth 
  11. Allison Williams, Get Out 
  12. Riley Keough, Lovesong 
  13. Garance Marillier, Raw 
  14. Carey Mulligan, Mudbound 
  15. Meryl Streep, The Post*
  16. Michelle Williams, All the Money in the World**
  17. Anne Hathaway, Colossal 
  18. Nicole Kidman, The Beguiled 
  19. Emma Stone, Battle of the Sexes**
  20. Kate Micucci, The Little Hours 

It’s hard to say which is worse:  pushing Kidman to 6th (preventing Sacred Deer from earning nominations in all four acting categories), pushing Richardson to 7th for a performance I loved, or pushing Williams to 11th for a performance I found severely underrated. Or maybe the fact that the Oscars passed over my top 3 to give Streep her 21st nomination. At least Chastain got a Globe nod; Nixon and Krieps only got a few nominations from minor critics’ awards.

Nixon is the clear winner for her magnificent take on Emily Dickinson, but it’s a great top 10 and a strong top 20. I should note that Kidman got several nominations in Supporting for Sacred Deer, and if I counted her as such she would indeed get a nomination, but I think she’s a lead.

Oscar/BAFTA/Globe/SAG nominees outside of my top 20:

  • Judi Dench, Victoria & Abdul (#24)

Supporting Actor:

  1. Barry Keoghan, The Killing of a Sacred Deer
  2. Will Poulter, Detroit 
  3. Sam Rockwell, Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri*
  4. Idris Elba, Molly’s Game 
  5. Michael Stuhlbarg, Call Me by Your Name 
  6. Michael Shannon, The Shape of Water 
  7. Richard Jenkins, The Shape of Water*
  8. Harrison Ford, Blade Runner 2049 
  9. Doug Jones, The Shape of Water 
  10. Armie Hammer, Call Me by Your Name**
  11. Rob Morgan, Mudbound 
  12. Romain Duris, All the Money in the World
  13. O’Shea Jackson Jr., Ingrid Goes West 
  14. Willem Dafoe, The Florida Project*
  15. Woody Harrelson, Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri*
  16. Jared Leto, Blade Runner 2049 
  17. Paul Walter Hauser, I, Tonya 
  18. Laurence Fishburne, Last Flag Flying 
  19. Sebastian Stan, I, Tonya 
  20. Christopher Fairbank, Lady Macbeth

Keoghan and Poulter are practically tied, but there’s a definite drop-off after that. Naturally, they were both largely overlooked, though Keoghan at least managed an Independent Spirit nomination. Only one Oscar nominee makes my top 5 (at least he’s the likely winner) and only two make my top 10, but my #3-15 are a very close bunch, and I really hate to push all of the great performances from The Shape of Water out of my top 5.

Oscar/BAFTA/Globe/SAG nominees outside of my top 20:

  • Christopher Plummer, All the Money in the World (#21)

Supporting Actress: 

  1. Lesley Manville, Phantom Thread*
  2. Raffey Cassidy, The Killing of a Sacred Deer
  3. Jennifer Ehle, A Quiet Passion
  4. Laurie Metcalf, Lady Bird*
  5. Miranda Richardson, Stronger
  6. Hong Chau, Downsizing**
  7. Jena Malone, Lovesong 
  8. Robin Wright, Blade Runner 2049 
  9. Allison Janney, I, Tonya*
  10. Octavia Spencer, The Shape of Water*
  11. Elizabeth Olsen, Ingrid Goes West 
  12. Ana de Armas, Blade Runner 2049 
  13. Sylvia Hoeks, Blade Runner 2049 
  14. Dafne Keen, Logan 
  15. Catherine Bailey, A Quiet Passion
  16. Beanie Feldstein, Lady Bird 
  17. Naomi Ackie, Lady Macbeth 
  18. Bria Vinaite, The Florida Project 
  19. Betty Gabriel, Get Out 
  20. Alicia Silverstone, The Killing of a Sacred Deer

Manville wins handily, but Cassidy is a very solid 2nd, so of course she got no nominations of any kind. At least Manville got a surprise Oscar nomination; Ehle managed only one minor nomination and Richardson got nothing at all – Tatiana Maslany did get several nominations for that film in Supporting, but I consider her a lead and in any case I don’t think she was as good as Richardson (she was my #21).

Oscar/BAFTA/Globe/SAG nominees outside of my top 20:

  • Holly Hunter, The Big Sick (#25)
  • Kristin Scott Thomas, Darkest Hour (#27)
  • Mary J. Blige, Mudbound (#32)

Ensemble:

  1. The Killing of a Sacred Deer
  2. The Shape of Water 
  3. Blade Runner 2049 
  4. Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri****
  5. Mudbound****
  6. Phantom Thread 
  7. Lady Bird****
  8. A Quiet Passion 
  9. Get Out****
  10. Columbus 
  11. Detroit 
  12. Molly’s Game 
  13. Lady Macbeth 
  14. I, Tonya 
  15. Stronger
  16. The Post 
  17. The Big Sick****
  18. It 
  19. Call Me by Your Name 
  20. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle 

It was an incredibly tough call between Mudbound and Phantom Thread for the #5 spot, but since Phantom Thread is all about the three leads (all of whom I nominated), I went with Mudbound, a quintessential ensemble piece.

I’d also like to mention the brilliant ensemble in Blade Runner 2049, not only because I wasn’t able to nominate anyone from it, but because science-fiction films are so often overlooked for their acting.

Vocal Performance – Male:

  1. Gael Garcia Bernal, Coco
  2. Will Arnett, The Lego Batman Movie
  3. Anthony Gonzalez, Coco
  4. Michael Cera, The Lego Batman Movie
  5. Bradley Cooper, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
  6. Jerome Flynn, Loving Vincent
  7. Douglas Booth, Loving Vincent
  8. Ewan McGregor, Beauty and the Beast
  9. Ian McKellen, Beauty and the Beast
  10. Chris O’Dowd, Loving Vincent
  11. John Sessions, Loving Vincent

There are several major animated films I haven’t yet seen – including three of the Oscar nominees – but for now Bernal’s delightful performance as the put-upon Hector is an easy winner for me.

Vocal Performance – Female:

  1. Eleanor Tomlinson, Loving Vincent
  2. Alanna Ulbach, Coco
  3. Helen McCrory, Loving Vincent
  4. Saoirse Ronan, Loving Vincent
  5. Ana Ofelia Murguia, Coco
  6. Emma Thompson, Beauty and the Beast
  7. Renée Victor, Coco

I’m not sure just how much Loving Vincent should count in this category, given that the animation was based directly on live-action footage (which, in my view, was a mistake), but the performances are certainly noteworthy.

Original Screenplay:

  1. Phantom Thread
  2. The Killing of a Sacred Deer
  3. A Quiet Passion
  4. Columbus
  5. The Shape of Water*
  6. Get Out*
  7. The Big Sick*
  8. Lady Bird*
  9. I, Tonya***
  10. The Post**
  11. Detroit
  12. Wind River
  13. Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri*
  14. Colossal
  15. The Square
  16. Darkest Hour
  17. The Florida Project
  18. Coco
  19. Dunkirk
  20. Menashe

My top 4 were all passed over by the Academy, but the next 4 all got nominated; of course, that leaves the likely winner as by far the weakest of the nominees, though it’s still good enough to make the top 20. I still don’t know how Phantom Thread got snubbed, but at least it won several major awards, and Sacred Deer co-won at Cannes; A Quiet Passion got almost nothing and Columbus was relegated to First Screeenplay/Debut Screenwriter categories.

I should note my top 8 are all very, very strong; Get Out is an excellent script and I hated to bump it from my top 5. Meanwhile, Dunkirk has easily the lowest-ranked screenplay of any Picture winner of mine, but it’s not really about the writing.

Adapted Screenplay:

  1. Blade Runner 2049
  2. Molly’s Game*
  3. Lady Macbeth
  4. Mudbound*
  5. Call Me by Your Name*
  6. The Little Hours
  7. Stronger
  8. The Beguiled
  9. War for the Planet of the Apes
  10. The Disaster Artist*
  11. All the Money in the World
  12. Star Wars: The Last Jedi
  13. It
  14. Logan*
  15. The Lego Batman Movie
  16. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle
  17. Wonder Woman
  18. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
  19. The Man Who Invented Christmas
  20. Wonder

Blade Runner comes in 2nd in five categories and 3rd in four more, but this is its only win. It’s a decisive win, too – Molly’s Game is a very good script, but it wouldn’t be my #2 in a good year. The rest of my list is solid but, again, only get as high as they do because of the weakness of the year. It doesn’t help that the Academy went for the overrated The Disaster Artist and the solid but conventional script for Logan (a good film, but more for the direction and acting than the writing) over Blade Runner or Lady Macbeth.

Special mention, by the way, to the fun and inventive script for Jumanji, a major (and underappreciated) element of that film’s massive success.

Cinematography:

  1. Dunkirk*
  2. The Shape of Water*
  3. Blade Runner 2049*
  4. Phantom Thread 
  5. The Killing of a Sacred Deer
  6. Atomic Blonde 
  7. Detroit 
  8. Lady Macbeth 
  9. Mudbound*
  10. Wormwood 
  11. The Beguiled 
  12. Columbus 
  13. The Lost City of Z 
  14. Good Time
  15. Wind River 
  16. Murder on the Orient Express
  17. War for the Planet of the Apes 
  18. Kedi 
  19. John Wick: Chapter 2
  20. Call Me by Your Name

It’s an extremely tight top 3; Blade Runner coming in 3rd isn’t a criticism of Deakins’ work, just a recognition of how amazing the top 2 are. Luckily, they were all pretty unanimously nominated by the awards groups, unlike most of the rest of my top 10.

Oscar/BAFTA/ASC nominees outside my top 20:

  • Darkest Hour (#23)
  • Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri (#43)

  2. Blade Runner 2049***
  3. The Shape of Water*

  6. Detroit 
  7. Baby Driver*
  8. Get Out 
  9. Good Time
  10. Lady Macbeth 
  11. Mudbound 
  12. Phantom Thread 
  13. Lady Bird 
  14. The Post 
  15. Wormwood 
  16. Wind River 
  17. All the Money in the World
  18. Star Wars: The Last Jedi 
  19. John Wick: Chapter 2
  20. Kedi 

Dunkirk is an easy choice given how it balances the three timelines, but major kudos to Blade Runner for making a deliberately-paced, 163-minute film so gripping.

I’d like to mention Detroit here; it comes in 6th in Director and Editing, 7th in Cinematography, and 10th in Picture, but only makes my top 5 once. It’s a great film, an overlooked one, and in a lot of years I’d have nominated it amply.

Oscar/BAFTA nominees outside my top 20:

  • Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri (#45)

Production Design:

  1. The Shape of Water*
  2. Blade Runner 2049*
  3. Phantom Thread 
  4. The Man Who Invented Christmas 
  5. Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets 
  6. The Post 
  7. Star Wars: The Last Jedi 
  8. Darkest Hour*
  9. Beauty and the Beast*
  10. It 
  11. mother! 
  12. Wonder Woman 
  13. The Greatest Showman 
  14. Thor: Ragnarok 
  15. Battle of the Sexes 
  16. Lady Macbeth 
  17. The Beguiled 
  18. A Quiet Passion
  19. All the Money in the World
  20. Brawl in Cell Block 99 

The wonderful laboratory and apartment sets secure this for Shape, but Blade Runner is a very, very close second. It’s actually really quite a strong list, especially the top 12, all of which could’ve easily made my top 5. I’m kind of shocked the Academy went with Dunkirk over some of these other films, but maybe my definition of good production design is too narrow.

Oscar/BAFTA nominees outside my top 20:

  • Dunkirk (#47)

Costume Design:

  1. Phantom Thread*
  2. Beauty and the Beast*
  3. Wonder Woman 
  4. The Greatest Showman 
  5. The Man Who Invented Christmas

  7. Thor: Ragnarok 
  8. Murder on the Orient Express
  9. Tulip Fever
  10. A Quiet Passion
  11. The Beguiled 
  12. The Shape of Water*
  13. Battle of the Sexes 
  14. Lady Macbeth 
  15. The Lost City of Z 
  16. Darkest Hour*
  17. Detroit 
  18. The Post 
  19. All the Money in the World
  20. Star Wars: The Last Jedi 

As with Production Design, the top two are virtually tied, and are followed by a large but tight bunch of worthy runners-up. And yes, it’s a matter of record that I’m no fan of The Greatest Showman or Tulip Fever, but both have superb costuming.

Oscar/BAFTA nominees outside my top 20:

  • I, Tonya (#21)
  • Victoria & Abdul (#23)

Makeup:

  1. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 
  2. Darkest Hour*

  6. Raw 
  7. Good Time
  8. The Lost City of Z
  9. The Man Who Invented Christmas

  12. Logan 
  13. It 
  14. Kong: Skull Island
  15. Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets 
  16. Blade Runner 2049***
  17. Brawl in Cell Block 99 
  18. The Greatest Showman 
  19. Atomic Blonde 
  20. The Killing of a Sacred Deer

Not a great year for makeup. The fact that I’m going with Guardians again kind of proves it, though Darkest Hour and Shape of Water are very close behind it. Kudos to the BAFTAs for going with the great work in I, Tonya.

Oscar/BAFTA nominees outside my top 20:

  • Victoria & Abdul (#22)

Score:

  1. Phantom Thread*
  2. The Shape of Water*
  3. Dunkirk*

  5. Blade Runner 2049***
  6. Star Wars: The Last Jedi*

  10. Battle of the Sexes
  11. Faces Places
  12. Raw
  13. Lady Bird
  14. The Lost City of Z
  15. Darkest Hour***
  16. Suburbicon
  17. Get Out
  18. All the Money in the World
  19. Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri*
  20. Ingrid Goes West

This list could certainly change over time as I listen to more scores, but at the very least I’m quite comfortable with my top 3 – the romanticism of Phantom Thread, the whimsy of Shape of Water, and the nerve-wracking tension of Dunkirk.

Song:

  1. “Remember Me”, Coco*
  2. “Buddy’s Business”, Brawl in Cell Block 99 
  3. “Guardians Inferno”, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 
  4. “A Little Change in the Weather”, Downsizing 
  5. “Mighty River”, Mudbound*
  6. “Un Poco Loco”, Coco 
  7. “It Ain’t Fair”, Detroit 
  8. “The Letter That Won’t Ever Be Sent”, Brawl in Cell Block 99 
  9. “Visions of Gideon”, Call Me by Your Name 
  10. “Stand Up for Something”, Marshall*
  11. “Your Hand I Will Never Let It Go”, The Book of Henry 
  12. “Mystery of Love”, Call Me by Your Name*
  13. “If I Dare”, Battle of the Sexes 
  14. “How Shall a Sparrow Fly”, Hostiles 
  15. “The Pure and the Damned”, Good Time 
  16. “I Get Overwhelmed”, A Ghost Story 
  17. “The Devil and the Huntsman”, King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword 
  18. “Come Alive”, The Greatest Showman 
  19. “To Be Human”, Wonder Woman 
  20. “The Other Side”, The Greatest Showman 

Coming off a brilliant year in this category, we have a solid but decidedly weaker list; “Remember Me” is the easy choice, given how perfectly it’s used throughout the film in its various versions. It’s the only one here that would’ve cracked my top 7 last year.

“Buddy’s Business” is a fine #2, however, and “Guardians Inferno”, even if it’s more of an instrumental than a real song, is a lot of fun and an easy top 5 choice this year.

Oscar/Globe nominees outside my top 10:

  • “This is Me”, The Greatest Showman (#21)

Sound Mixing:

  1. Dunkirk*
  2. Blade Runner 2049*

  14. Get Out 
  15. mother! 
  16. Detroit 
  17. Lady Macbeth 
  18. The Greatest Showman 
  19. The Shape of Water*
  20. Phantom Thread

My top 2 in this category and the next are practically tied. I go with the amazing sound design in Dunkirk, but 2049‘s soundscape is no less impressive.

Also, don’t take the low ranking of The Shape of Water here to suggest its sound design was deficient – this is just a very strong top 20 and on another viewing I could easily move it up the list. Sound design is one of the trickiest things for me to rank properly, in part because one’s perception of it can vary based on any number of factors.

Sound Effects:

  1. Dunkirk*
  2. Blade Runner 2049*

  16. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle 
  17. Brawl in Cell Block 99 
  18. Coco 
  19. It 
  20. Phantom Thread

I’ll just note that the Academy and I agree 5/5 on this category, which might be the first time that’s ever happened.

  16. Beauty and the Beast 
  17. Downsizing
  18. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle 
  19. The Mummy
  20. The Man Who Invented Christmas 

Blade Runner would win in almost any other year, especially for that brilliant threesome scene. But the effects in Apes are so pervasive and seamless that I have to pick them.

Best film with no nominations: The Big Sick

It gets to #7 in Original Screenplay, but that’s the only time it even makes my top 10.

Best (dramatic) film not to make the top 10 in any category: The Florida Project

A very good film, and one I really ought to see again, but the best it gets here is 14th place for Willem Dafoe in Supporting Actor.

Overall Ranking:

  1. Dunkirk (89)
