sound off on the Oscar race

Current Predicted Nominee Tally. I'm going to say 8 Best Picture nominees... with Moonlight and Silence just on the outside of Best Picture

11 nominations
LA LA LAND (+5)
This is probably too high an expectation but 7 nominations at bare minimum

10 nominations
ARRIVAL (+3)
also probably too generous a prediction but where to cut it? 

8 nominations
BILLY LYNN'S LONG HALFTIME WALK (-3)

7 nominations
JACKIE (+7)
difficult to know how they'll respond to the techs here or if they'll view it as a director/star picture primarily 

5 nominations
MANCHESTER BY THE SEA (=)
PASSENGERS (+1) 

4 nominations
FENCES (-1)
FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS (+1)
LOVING (-1)
SILENCE (-2) 
all of these could go much higher in nomination count if the campaigns are strong and the academy loves the movies 

3 nominations
THE JUNGLE BOOK (=)
MOANA (=)
ROGUE ONE (-1) 

2 nominations
20TH CENTURY WOMEN (-1)
MOONLIGHT (=)
QUEEN OF KATWE (+1)

1 nomination

DOCTOR STRANGE  (=)
FANTASTIC BEASTS  (-1)
KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS (=)
