So, Cuaron and Cooper as the baseline; Spike as the Mama Bear (not too hot, not too cold, just right); and Farrelly and McKay to piss people off, though seemingly from different directions.

It might just be a 3-of-5 rather than 4-of-5 carryover to the directors' branch, with Lanthimos and Jenkins knocking off Farrelly/McKay. But if only one of them make it, you'd think Lanthimos, with a generally stronger film, would come first. Unless Jenkins plays the "been nominated before" card, a plus in the category.

I acknowledge I mis-called Mad Max: Fury Road three years ago, but the Black Panther thing has still always seemed a bridge too far for Oscar voters, so this doesn't shock me. It is strange that the writers, of all branches, are one of the Guilds that came through for it.

Same as the Globe list. Lanthimos and Jenkins now feel like they’re both fighting for Oscar’s lone director-type slot. And Black Panther’s chances of actually winning Best Picture now seem nil.
