Films like Call Me By Your Name, The Post, The Florida Project, I, Tonya, Get Out, Dunkirk, The Shape of Water, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Lady Bird and The Disaster Artist are all expected to do very well in the awards season this year.

However, there are also a bundling of films that are referred to as the dark horse category — meaning films that have also come out this year that aren’t getting the same amount of buzz as those previously mentioned, but still have an outside chance of picking up some various nominations and wins.
