I have less to say here only because I don’t think any of these are too far-fetched for nominations, aside for maybe Bennett Miller. Ava DuVernay created a tonally aggressive film and succeeded largely because of it. Wes Anderson produced his best film yet in a strong filmography. Alejandro González Iñárritu changed the game and Damien Chazelle burst onto the scene with style and confidence.
Who are your predictions for tomorrow’s nominations? Let us know who would end up on your ballot!
