Parasite moves into the top 5 for Film Editing this month as its Best Picture prospects grow. That pushes 1917 back down into the Next Up section but it’s still a broad contender for multiple nominations and wins.

In Cinematography, the flashy lensing of Ford v Ferrari makes way for the ethereal look of A Hidden Life. For now.
