2018 Best Picture ranking

There are only nine Best Picture nominees this year, but we still barely fit them all in before the Oscars this Sunday. Here they are, best to least-best.

  • Get Out – Best movie of the year! I loved it. Entertaining, thought-provoking, and surprising. Vital.
  • Lady Bird – Also vital. And perfect. This spoke to me so hard.
  • The Shape of Water – I was so inspired by this one. Gorgeous. Kinda weird.
  • Phantom Thread – Creative genius treats women badly. But surprising plot. But you know Daniel Day-Lewis is so method, he was definitely a jerk on set.
  • Call Me By Your Name – I’m still not sure why they were calling each other by their names? There’s a lot I appreciated about this movie, even if it didn’t hit me in the heart the way Lady Bird did.
  • Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri – I understand why this movie is problematic in ways, but I’m hopeful that it created conversation around those issues.
  • Dunkirk – One of my fears is being trapped somewhere and drowning. This movie kept playing on that.
  • The Post – Pandering??
  • Darkest Hour – Should be called Darkest Two Hours. Plus, spoilers for Dunkirk.
