The Oscar nominations are announced, along with the finest Picture race has struck its final phase. Following a variety of ups and downs, we’ve got our closing eight contenders. There are still four months to proceed –and lots can happen at the moment –but for today a bit was illuminated, and it seems we are down to 2 frontrunners to take home the principal prize.
The first is Green Book, a movie that pretty much was not on anybody’s radar before it won the People’s Choice Award at TIFF–that historically promises the finest Picture nomination. It has had a rocky road since that moment, struggling to fulfill its own expectations as a box office crowdpleaser and being struck with scandal after scandal. No matter Academy voters went to the feel-good play hard, nominating it for five Oscars in total.
The main reason it is a frontrunner competition must do with precedent, largely. It is a Significant harbinger for Oscar glory, Though It can sometimes overlook like in the cases of La La Land and The Large Short. However, the PGA is not the only decoration Green Book has. Additionally, it carries with it important Oscar nominations which are harbingers of Oscar glory, most especially Best Film Editing. Really, the finest Picture winner has scored a finest Film Editing nomination nearly every season for the previous two decades.
The major knock against Green Book winning Best Picture is it’s a divisive movie. Considering that the Academy uses a preferential ballot system to vote for Best Picture–significance voters rank their choices from favorite to least favorite–movies that are popular often perform better (watch: The Form of Water) compared to the ones which are either loved or loathed (watch: Three Billboards).
The movie faced an uphill struggle not just because of perceived prejudice against Netflix within the Academy, but also on account of the fact that it is a lengthy, black-and-white, Spanish-language play free of movie stars. It is among this year’s most critically acclaimed movies, and director/writer/producer/cinematographer/co-editor Alfonso Cuaron has picked up a range of Best Director and Best Picture trophies across the critics’ circuit. In case Green Book is the season’s La La Land–a commercial, adore it/hate it hit–then Romacan surely be this season’s Moonlight. And most of us know how that turned out.
