Guillermo del Toro’s sci-fi/horror film led with 14 nods, while “Call Me by Your Name,” “Dunkirk,” “Lady Bird” and “The Post” each earned eight.
Stop the presses: The Post has officially announced itself as a bona fide Oscar contender. Sight unseen, pundits have been predicting for months that The Post would be the film to beat this year, especially after no clear frontrunner emerged from the fall festivals. After all, The Post is a highly topical drama about The President vs. The Press.
Yahoo Entertainment asked the actors and directors at the Governors Awards which 2017 film or performance would have their early vote on the Oscar ballot.
Yahoo Entertainment's favorites include 'The Shape of Water,' 'The Disaster Artist,' 'Lady Bird,' Jessica Chastain, Shia LaBeouf, Denzel Washington
Greta Gerwig moves behind the camera for "Lady Bird," her semiautobiographical directorial debut starring Saoirse Ronan as a rebellious Catholic school student.
