STRENGTHS Sure, it’s a genre movie of sorts, and genre movies usually face an uphill battle with the Academy. But not this one, an oddly compelling interspecies romantic fantasy. With the most noms of any contender, it registered in just about every category it hoped to take, except for visual effects. At the Jan. 20 PGA Awards, it won the top prize.

WEAKNESSES True, it wasn’t nominated for the SAG Awards’ cast prize, but nobody’s perfect.
