Is it too soon the predict the 2018 Oscars?
OK, that's a wrap on the 2017 Oscar ceremony! So it too early to start looking ahead to the 2018 Academy Awards?
Not if you're as obsessed with film awards as we are!
Christopher Nolan's "Dunkirk" is an early contender for Best Picture and a bunch of other awards, at least according to a list compiled by the Internet Movie Database and industry chatter. "Hurt Locker" director Kathryn Bigelow is also on tap with a drama about civil unrest in 1967 Detroit; as of yet that project is still untitled.
Although they've also got Matt Damon's egregious medieval thriller, "The Great Wall," on the list. What's that all about?
And while we're talking about movies, let's not ignore the Oscar ceremony itself. Jimmy Kimmel just completed his first stint as host, so does he have a chance to repeat? Here's one perspective trying to predict who the 2018 host will be.
Other notable films I'm hearing talked up for next year's awards include "Murder on the Orient Express," "Darkest Hour," the remake of "Blade Runner," "The Beguiled," "Downsizing" and "The Death of Stalin."
Check out these trailers for some early hopefuls!
