Despite being in a film that has yet to even give us a teaser trailer, Liam Neeson (Silence) remains atop the Best Supporting Actor chart, a surprising feat considering all but one other contender (Stephen McKinley Henderson in Fences, incidentally both Paramount releases) has been seen and reviewed and Neeson still hasn’t been toppled.

As with the new Best Picture predictions, there is movement due to the failure of Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk to generate positive reviews after its NYFCC screening. This results in its director, two-time Oscar winner Ang Lee, falling off the list completely – just as his film did. This helps everyone else, of course, with Martin Scorsese (Silence), Kenneth Lonergan ...

October brought the biggest changes and upsets in Best Picture we’ve all year. Early frontrunner Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk screened in all of its 4k, 3D, 120fps glory to almost universal pans.
