The Oscars are less than a week away! It’s been a long year and a long awards season. I actually haven’t reviewed most of these nominees. Apologies about that – it’s hard balancing writing reviews and having a full time job. But we have a pretty good line up this year.Continue reading “2021 Oscar Predictions”
This year’s Oscars are less than a month away and with the nominations announced I decided to share who I think will win the golden statues this year. I will only be covering a few of the major categories. As of now, I have not seen these films nominated in acting categories: Bombshell, Harriet, Judy, Richard Jewell, and The Two Popes.
Here is a link for the full list of nominations, but I have listed the nominations for categories I am covering.
Let’s begin.Continue reading “2020 Oscar Predictions”
Parasite centers on a family living in poverty in South Korea, once they are able to secure jobs by working for a rich family, they are happy to work for them until things start to take a darker turn.
The end of the summer is upon us and I just wanted to take a second to share with you all my most anticipated fall movies for the end of the year. The Fall movie season is definitely my favorite movie season. So let’s dive in.
Here are my thoughts on what’s going to win at this year’s Oscars and what I want to win at this year’s Oscars.
Nominations: The Shape of Water, Call Me by Your Name, Darkest Hour, The Post, Phantom Thread, Get Out, Dunkirk, Lady Bird, and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Who Will Win: Three Billboards
Who I Want to Win: The Florida Project (not nominated) or Lady Bird
Three Billboards is a worthy Best Picture contender and I wouldn’t mind seeing it win. But the only thing that really bothers me about the film is the tone – Three Billboards is a dark comedy, and while I do like dark comedies and appreciated their moments in the film, I think that in many instances in the film the drama would’ve stuck better. Lady Bird would be my choice to win out of the nominations because it’s such a strikingly real movie. Though I would rather have The Florida Project be nominated and win because of it’s impact on me – I can’t quite forget that film, it has still stuck with me since I’ve seen it.
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri surrounds a grieving mother, Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand), who on a search for justice after her daughter was raped and murdered almost a year ago, so she rents three billboards and asks the local police why has it been so long and no arrests have been made?
I heard nothing but good things about Lady Bird and I didn’t really know what it was about. All I heard is that it was about a high school senior who goes to a Catholic school who wants to be called “Lady Bird” and her relationship with her mother. And well that’s really all you need to know about this movie too.
