Everyone that is shocked about that Deadpool nomination should not be. It now has a WGA, ACE Eddie, and yes a PGA nomination. Do I think it will translate to Oscar? Probably not, but there clearly are some passionate folks out there for the film, and the expanded Best Picture was made for films like Deadpool. I think that these ten, along with Florence Foster Jenkins and Nocturnal Animals, are your big contenders for 8 or 9 slots. Right now I would pull out Deadpool and predict nine, but let's see how DGA, ASC, and some of the other guilds fall into place.
