Oscars 2019 – Best Picture

This is always the biggest talking point of any Oscar ceremony and which film will walk away with the title of being Best Picture. I seem to have a love/hate relationship with the winners of this category over the years. It seems to be either my favourite film that wins it or the film I hate the most from the nominees.

This year I feel its been a very strange and odd awards season, with that I don’t really have a film that I totally love out of these eight nominated films. None in this years batch I totally love and I don’t particularly hate with a passion either. I just feel rather neutral towards them. I am hoping that by putting together this blog post that I might be able to make my mind up a little bit more. I just feel as though it is a very weak year in terms of the quality of the films. We shall soon see, so let’s take one more look at the eight films up for the most prestigious honour in film . . .

This is usually one of the easiest categories to predict but continuing in 2019s absolutely crazy award season it could actually be a rather tricky one. That is a good thing I guess in terms of performances as the award has been shared really between two actresses over the awards season period. So it could have a slight upset if you are having one as your firm favourite.

Let’s take another look at the five actresses who are nominated this year in a supporting role.
