A poco più di un mese dall’annuncio delle nomination per la 90^ edizione degli Academy Awards, l’Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences sta annunciando le diverse shortlist da cui verranno poi selezionati i finalisti. Noi di Entertainment Illustrated abbiamo deciso di iniziare da quelle più tecniche.

Migliori effetti speciali:

Nella prima categoria spiccano tra gli altri Dunkirk, Guardiani della galassia Vol. 2 e Star Wars: Gli Ultimi Jedi. Eliminati dalla selezione Wonder Woman, Logan e Thor: Ragnarok.

“Alien: Covenant”

“Blade Runner 2049”


“Guardiani della Galassia Vol. 2”

“Kong: Skull Island”



“The Shape of Water”

“Star Wars: Gli Ultimi Jedi”

“Valerian e la città dei mille pianeti”

“The War – Il pianeta delle scimmie”


Miglior trucco e acconciatura

La sorpresa viene proprio da questa categoria nella quale, salvo “L’ora più buia”, non abbiamo film imponenti ma produzioni più libere e meno seriose. Detto questo il film con Gary Oldman sembra nettamente il più accreditato a vincere.


“Ghost in the shell”

“Guardiani della galassia vol.2”

Victoria e Abdul


“L’ora più buia”
