This week, we spent a short time talking about the Spirit Award nominations, which announce tomorrow. We’re probably going to be seeing the usual suspects. The Spirits nominating committee is much bigger than with the Gotham Awards; whereas the Gothams only have five people choosing the major categories, the Spirits use a larger nominating committee that is a mixed bag of critics, industry and former winners.
We expect there Get Out, Call Me By Your Name, Lady Bird, and The Florida Project to lead the nominations. We’re not expecting any of the bigger Oscar movies to show up there – and if they do it will be a surprise. Mudbound will be a nice surprise if it is nominated.
AwardsWatch.com has put out their predictions if you want to check them out.
Let us know what you think will show up – any No Guts, No Glory predictions?
