A whopping 341 films are eligible to receive a nomination for Best Picture at the 90th Academy Awards next year.

These include strong contenders like Lady Bird and The Post and critical failures like Justice League and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

According to a report on Variety, some of the front-runners include Call Me By Your Name, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, The Post, Lady Bird, Get Out, Dunkirk, The Shape of Water, Darkest Hour, The Florida Project, The Big Sick and Mudbound. Though critically panned films like Baywatch, Justice League, The Emoji Movie, Chips, The Mummy, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales are also in contention, they are most likely to be filtered out ahead of the nominations announcement on 23 January.
