Let’s be real…OUR BIG PROBLEM IS BRADLEY COOPER GETTING SHUT OUT FOR ‘A STAR IS BORN.’  (All caps ’cause we’re serious.)

A Star Is Born and Green Book were considered two of this year’s Best Picture front-runners, and while they didn’t exactly score poorly with Oscar — A Star Is Born landed eight nominations, while Green Book drove home with five — neither managed a Best Director nomination, usually considered a prerequisite for a Best Picture win.

The Best Picture category was only eight strong.
The Academy’s first-five-then-ten-now-however-many-films-we-feel-like rules make it hard to predict exactly how many films will make it into the Best Picture category, but we seem to have settled on a pattern. Now it’s all wonky again.
