LOGAN Is One Of The National Board Of Review's Best Films Of 2017 - Is A Best Picture Nomination Within Reach?

Fox was deep in the Oscar game last year with Tim Miller's Deadpool. With two Golden Globe nominations, no one expected it to get that far. Will they be in the running again with James Mangold's Logan?

Last year Deadpool hit the jackpot. Who knew the Merc would enjoy a bigger opening weekend than Justice League, Thor, and Spider-Man, let alone have an outstanding awards run. A superhero film getting both a Best Actor and Best Picture nomination at the Golden Globes sounds absolutely insane on paper, and it only proves how much Fox is experienced in the awards field.

Can lightning strike twice for the studio's genre films?

The National Board of Review's best of 2017 list was unvealed earlier this week, with much of the fanfare going to Steven Spielberg's The Post, but the one outlier of the bunch was Logan. Who knew a film released so early in the year would be so well remembered by voters in the midst of Oscar season?

The film definitely deserves the attention with class performances by Jackman and Stewart. If Logan keeps appearing on major critic circle compilations, could we see a Best Picture nomination on the horizon. This is the first indicator that Logan may actually be a big player in the platform. 

Keep it up Fox, if you can do it with Deadpool, you can definitely do some good with Logan.

The list is as follows:
