Patty Jenkins did a great job as director of Wonder Woman (2017). I believe it is worthy of a Best Director Oscar nomination. I really enjoyed Wonder Woman, I'm on the fence as to whether it deserves an Oscar nomination.

 I didn't want this to be a Face-Off that is why I have 5 options. 

 If I remove option 4, leaving me with four options, do I have to make it a face-off?

LD,

A four-choice poll can either be a face-off poll or a regular poll at the discretion of the author.

Contenders, sure. And it's fair enough to campaign for it.

I can't really say whether they should be nominated yet.

Without having watched many films yet, I don't think Wonder Woman deserves nominations in any major category. I found it overrated and gave it a ranking below the minimum score I think Oscar nominnes should have (an 8 on my list)

I didn't see the film, but what is so special about it so that it deserves these nominations, I mean more than all the superhero movies made since the 2000's? Is it that revolutionary or do they just want to set a precedent?

Perhaps you could update the text so the poll could still be considered.

Wonder Woman was fine, definitely a more coherent movie than the previous two DC superhero films (BvS and Suicide Squad). But putting the fan-hype aside, I don't think it deserves any kind of Oscar nomination. I also understand that a female superhero is a big deal for certain people, but Oscars are supposed to be about the art and the quality of filmmaking, not "social justice".

Greta Gerwig for Lady Bird and Dee Rees for Mudbound have far better chances to be the Oscar-nominated female directors and there are still strong contenders like Kathryn Bigelow and Sofia Coppola. For all I know, maybe Wonder Woman is Best Picture material but I'm not sure the directing campaign will lead somewhere even with the "female director directing a female driven superhero movie'" angle.

Tell that to the academy who nominated some real pieces of trash not because they were well made but because of the social message in the film.

"Tell that to the academy"

I don't think they care about my opinion.

I think the intro still said "planning a campaign" or something like that, that's all. Looks good now.

'Wonder Woman' Oscar Campaign - Best Picture & Best Director
Warner Bros. has launched its Oscar campaign for Wonder Woman. They are pushing the film to become the first comic-book movie nominated for Best Picture. The studio also wants Patty Jenkins to be the first director of a comic book movie nominated for Best Director. 


Should Wonder Woman be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture and/or Best Director?

I very much enjoyed Wonder Woman, but I don't think it's the best superhero film of the year or the best-directed superhero film of the year. I don't have anything against superhero films being nominated if they're good enough, but I don't know if this is quite that good. It's still good, but great is a stretch.

Best picture, definitely not. Best director I'd be ok with a nomination for, though it wasn't necessarily that outstanding in terms of direction (too many Snyder-isms).

I think there's plenty more than 5 better-qualified films than this in both categories at the moment, and I can't think of any other categories it'd be a contender for. :P

Couldn't really decide between the Logan and Joker options.
