We've barely had time to close the books on the 89th Annual Academy Awards, and congratulate La La Land on its well-deserved Best Picture... what's that, Warren Beatty? It's Moonlight? Ah, yes. Well, congrats to Moonlight for taking home Best Picture! Anyway, what better time to look ahead and see which movie might be confused by an aging Hollywood icon NEXT year at the prestigious Oscar ceremony. Because it's never too soon to start campaigning. Last year when we tried this, we failed miserably, nailing only one of nine Best Picture guesses. We can't do worse, right? Right?!

Beauty and the Beast

Best Picture

Beauty and the Beast

Darkest Hour

Downsizing

The Greatest Showman

Kathryn Bigelow's Detroit Project

Logan

Mother!

Mudbound

Untitled Paul Thomas Anderson Movie

Is this the year that a superhero movie cracks through the glass ceiling at the Oscars? Logan has a very good shot, with spectacular reviews so far and a leading man (Hugh Jackman) with Academy cred. Jackman might also power The Greatest Showman into the race, as the P.T. Barnum biopic also boasts music by the La La Land songwriters, Pasek and Paul. We'll know soon enough if Disney's live-action Beauty and the Beast can match the Best Picture nomination earned by its animated counterpart in 1992. And the rest of my bizarrely early guesses are attached to directing talent like Kathryn Bigelow, Alexander Payne, Darren Aronofsky and Paul Thomas Anderson.
