Where are the Oscar films showing in Singapore?
CALL ME BY YOUR NAME
Best screenplay, Best original song, Best actor in a leading role
Three things have inevitably happened to you since Call Me By Your Name exploded into the mainstream scene: 1. You've fallen in love with Hollywood's new boy toy Timothée Chalamet. 2. You've rekindled your love for Sufjan Stevens. 3. You now dream of a holiday home in Italy (incidentally, the villa that's featured in the film is now on sale). Watch at The Projector.
Best actor in a leading role, Best actress in a supporting role, Best costume design, Best director, Best original score
It's Daniel Day-Lewis in his last role before retirement. Phantom Thread sees him as a dressmaker in a suspenseful game of cat-and-mouse between the artist on a creative journey and the women who keep his world running. It's a lengthy watch, but period drama-lovers will ooh and ahh at the spectacular frocks on display. Watch at GV, Shaw and The Projector.
THE SHAPE OF WATER
Best actress in a leading role, Best actor in a supporting role, Best actress in a supporting role, Best cinematography, Best costume design, Best director, Best film editing, Best original score, Best production design, Best sound editing, Best sound mixing, Best original screenplay
Yes, it's pretty depressing when even Guillermo del Toro's monster can find love when you can't. The Shape of Water sees uber talented Sally Hawkins getting all sorts of feels for a mysterious being. Warning: Grab some tissues. The film's nominated in 12 categories — throw a bone at the rest of us, guys. Watch at GV, Shaw and The Projector. Catch it at the open-air Sunset Cinema by the beach on 11 May.

You'll want to bring your mother to this one. A love story that's between a mother and daughter for a change (and no, it's not the creepy sort), Greta Gerwig's directoral debut pits Saoirse Ronan against Laurie Metcalf in a match of love, hate and the sticky mess in between. Watch at GV, Cathay, Shaw and The Projector.
THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI
Best actress in a leading role, Best actor in a supporting role, Best film editing, Best original score, Best original screenplay
If you enjoyed Pangemonium's production of The Pillowman last year, you'd want to watch that Irish playwright's feature film, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. It's already won four Golden Globes and five Baftas, and is set to be the underrated film that'll shine at the Oscars. A dark comedy centering on a mother's frustration revolving around her daughter's unsolved murder, Martin McDonagh's film is a triumph. Watch at GV, Shaw and The Projector. Catch it at Sunset Cinema by the beach on 5 May.
