Our annual contest returns for its 21st year. Good luck!

Any early predictions? Any surprise at some of the nominees?

Tom Hanks supporting actor?

Who the hell is he supporting?

He’s Fred Rogers! It’s a movie literally about his character.

I heard that A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood was supposed to be about the reporter, and how he changes as a result of his conversations with Rogers. But I haven't seen it to be sure. I can't find online how much screen time Tom Hanks and Matthew Rhys each have.

I continue to be amazed by Joker's acclaim. As I said elsewhere, I skipped it because it looked like male-grievance trash, an 8chan thread adapted to film. But now it's nominated for more Oscars than any other film of the year, and likely to win several. I guess if Braveheart and Gladiator can win Best Picture with the same violent-male-revenge-fantasy appeal, why not Joker too?
