Oscars 2018: Everything to know before this year's Academy Awards

I understand the Oscars aren't exactly the place for indie films to shine, but I still would have liked to see it somewhere.

Receiving an Oscar doesn't necessarily make a movie worth watching. If you haven't seen the movies nominated for the best picture Oscar, now's your your chance.

This year's Oscars will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, making him the second person to host the show consecutively since Billy Crystal in 1997 and 1998. People will wait to go until they're nominated. As an aside, I have seen nearly all of the nominated films at this point. "It's hard to do jokes about movies people haven't seen", he explained to ET.

The next year, host Billy Crystal walked onstage to applause and asked: "Is that for me or are you just glad I'm not Snow White?" More people have seen and liked Get Out, and it's astounding that a February 2017 release has retained enough momentum and impact to hold onto awards buzz nearly a year later. After the 2016 #OscarsSoWhite controversy in which people of color were noticeably left out of the nominations, and last year's Best Picture mishap when "La La Land" was mistakenly named as Best Picture instead of "Moonlight", both Schade and Johnson spoke about the flaws in the The Academy's decision making process. "I thought he did fantastic, so I'm really surprised he didn't even get a nomination".

Delena Obermaier, senior film studies major: I think it will go to del Toro.

"Everyone loves a good movie that reflects history, so I would bring it down to "Darkest Hour, "Dunkirk" or "The Post, '" Crowley said".

Kimbell said he gives the best picture edge to "Call Me by Your Name", but extends his appreciation to "Get Out", and said the work of its director should not be overlooked.

Just a few days until the Academy Awards Show. Lady Bird is a stellar movie.

This popular movie theater even houses some of the costumes from recent releases, with one of the skating competition costumes from "I, Tonya" now on display. "Or as it's known at my house, Passover", he said at one telecast.

Kimmel: All I hope to accomplish is, well, two things: I want to make people laugh, and I want to appropriately honor the people who have been dreaming of this night for their whole lives, and let them enjoy it, and let them say what they want to say. Also, it should be noted that Paul Thomas Anderson is a genius, so it's a very strong category this year. I really enjoyed Roman J. Israel, Esq. and if the movie had been slightly better, Denzel Washington (who is also nominated) would be a surefire pick for this category. Frances McDormand is fantastic in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, but I don't think she outshines either Ronan or Hawkins. I think Moonlight will be remembered.

Obermaier: I actually do a gender and race breakdown of the Oscars every year. Her performance previous year in Florence Foster Jenkins certainly didn't deserve a nomination, and her performance as Katharine Graham in The Post doesn't deserve one either.
