The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has released Oscar shortlists in nine categories at one time–an unprecedented move (previous shortlists were sent out separately and at different times). With Oscars speculation in full swing, what are the year’s frontrunners?

Let’s take a moment to unpack what I think are this year’s most likely Best Picture candidates (and a few I think won’t be nominated–but I think they should).

Alfonso Cuarón’s very personal masterwork follows Cleo, a housekeeper in the political turmoil of 1970s Mexico City. Intimate and profound with absolutely gorgeous black and white cinematography, Roma won the Golden Lion in its Venice premiere. It has also had an impressive run among major critics’ organization awards, winning Best Picture/Film in New York, LA, Chicago, Toronto, and Philadelphia (among others). Still, its chances at the Academy are a little tougher given its Netflix distribution and the difficulty foreign-language films often have at the Oscars. Nonetheless, Roma is my favorite this year.
