From a sheer acting and writing standpoint I’d put Logan above Wonder Woman, even though I liked Wonder Woman more.
Even the biggest Wonder Woman fans will tell you the third act has cringey video game dialogue.

Baby Wonder Woman was a good movie, but just wasn’t oscars material… I love her but let’s face reality. And Logan tho!

Interesting people are freaking out Wonder Woman didn’t get an #Oscars2018 nomination. Superhero movies just don’t get the big nominations. If they do get noms, it is in editing, music, sound, visual and costumes. Good movie, yes, but just didn’t get the votes to get nominated.

Wonder woman wasn’t nominated for anything. She got me too’d by the Oscar academy.

Michael Stuhlberg, Armie Hammer, & James Franco/Disaster Artist got snubbed by Oscars? Thats absurd. Patty Jenkins & Wonder Woman too. Lot more subs than I realized.

Wonder Woman is far from a perfect movie, and almost all the problems are at the script level, ESPECIALLY in the final act.
Jenkin’s directing, Gadot’s performance and the No Man’s Land scene elevate this movie out of mediocrity.

The absolutely garbage Beauty and the Beast remake gets two technical nominations and Wonder Woman is nowhere to be seen

I can’t believe Suicide Squad is an oscar-winning movie while Wonder Woman didn’t receive a SINGLE nomination??? @TheAcademy explain!!!

I really liked the Wonder Woman movie. I just wish people would stop trying to politicize it….

So there you have it. The people complaining about Suicide Squad having an Oscar probably forgot that it was for Best Costume Design, and not anything else. It’s not like Suicide Squad was nominated for (or won) Best Picture. Let’s calm down a bit.
As far as Wonder Woman deserving an Oscar nomination, superhero films don’t typically get nominated, so it’s not a huge surprise.
