    I mostly agree with your choices, especially the acting ones. Your picks totally leave Dunkirk in the cold, and I doubt that will happen (I hope not). It could very well get the sound and editing awards, if not cinematography. I’m also rooting for “This Is Me” for Best Song and War for the Planet of the Apes for Visual Effects.

    I got 12 out of 20. Also Shape of Water is the first movie I saw in theaters that won Best Picture.
