Now the Academy Awards have released their nominations for 2018 we decided to create our own nominations inspired by the Observer

Honourable Mentions:
Best supporting actor should go to Will Poulter (Detroit), Daniel Craig (Logan Lucky) & Michelle Williams (All The Money in the World) for their convincing portrayals that were overlooked. We also particularly enjoyed Baby Driver and The Big Sick but didn’t feel either mastered any of the categories despite how much we liked them. Our guilty pleasure would also be the score by Daniel Pemberton for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, which is completely underrated (but we couldn’t have TWO Pemberton soundtracks competing against each other!). Oh and we added our own category just for fun…
