1. Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri
2. Get Out
3. Lady Bird
4. The Shape of Water
5. The Big Sick

A stacked category with several possible outcomes. Though Lady Bird and, especially, Get Out pose serious competition, I think Martin McDonagh's Three Billboards... narrowly steals this Oscar as it continues its unusual dominance this awards season. If there's hope for a Get Out Best Picture surprise, it will need to take this first.

1. Call Me By Your Name
2. Mudbound
3. Molly's Game
4. The Disaster Artist
5. Logan

Unless Mudbound has unexpectedly strong support, veteran filmmaker (and 89-year-old!) James Ivory will finally take home the Oscar that has long eluded him with a win for his adaptation of Call Me by Your Name.
