IMHO, it's either 1917 or The Lighthouse.

 

Joker was neat, lighting was on-point, but nothing groundbreaking.

The Irishman - its main feature was the whole 'de-aging' process; to me, the results were somewhat hilarious.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood?

1917 is going to win because the "single shot" aspect. I am very glad The Lighthouse got a nomination here though. Use of old glass, old film stock, and a great grade in a unique aspect ratio. It definitely took risks and it paid off.

1917 is brilliant. One of my favorite movies of the year and insanely remarkable how they made the film. The sets, the lighting, the choreography, and the techniques used in this film are all groundbreaking - and it's even a great, emotional, and beautiful film. Right up there with Dunkirk as my favorite war movie of all time.

This video shows a lot of what makes the filming of this movie so special:

My thoughts exactly. I'd be happily surprised if The Lighthouse wins though!

Awesome.  Does it stay believable that the man character could do what he did physically over a 2 1/2 hour period? Everything looks like he's Jack Bauer, who also had some what of a continues time-line.  24 is one of my all-time favorite cinema shows.

I haven't seen 1917 yet. The Lighthouse looked absolutely incredible though. There was definitely so very much time and effort put forth in crafting that look. I think it really paid off in serving the story.

The Lighthouse was an amazing movie, beautifully shot and executed. But I think 1917 will win this year

I think 1917 did a great job of keeping the film exciting, but it is not "action-packed" like most action/war movies. It feels very realistic. It's more stressful and tense than high-flying action. And, like in real life, any fights are messy and realistic. I really think they toed the line very well of action and reality.

Film gets you in with excellence and a small budget

Finally saw 1917. And after seeing I think it deserves the win. The staging and framing throughout the film did not suffer from it being a single shot, and there were only a few moments where I think a traditional style would have suited the story better in the particular moment.

The sequence in a burned down town that is lit primarily with flares is absolutely stunning.
