Martin McDonagh didn’t pick up a nomination for Three Billboards in the director category, but we still have a good competition.
Guillermo del Toro’s the most likely winner in this category for The Shape of Water after winning the Globe, DGA, BAFTA, and Critics Choice. If anyone is to triumph over del Toro, it’ll be Christopher Nolan with his incredible war flick Dunkirk.
- Guillermo del Toro, The Shape of Water
- Christopher Nolan, Dunkirk
- Jordan Peele, Get Out
- Greta Gerwig, Lady Bird
- Paul Thomas Anderson, Phantom Thread
