This really does look rather epic and throwing Florence Pugh in with Scarlett Johansson is certainly the best idea. As well as Rachel Weisz and David Harbour, from this teaser trailer it is clear that we are going to get the very best of Marvel in terms of action and humour all mixed together.
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.
Alfonso Cuaron, Roma
“The Favourite,” Deborah Davis, Tony McNamara
“BlacKkKlansman,” Spike Lee, David Rabinowitz, Charlie Wachtel, Kevin Willmott
Rami Malek, “Bohemian Rhapsody”
Olivia Colman, “The Favourite”
Mahershala Ali, “Green Book”
Rachel Weisz, “The Favourite”
Rachel Weisz for The Favourite
Last night the Screen Actor Guild awards took place and here are the winners!
The Favourite along with Roma have both been nominated for 10 Oscars which is the most for 2019. This year feels a little bit strange though when it comes to awards season and I don’t particularly have a film that I am backing all the way in terms of totally loving it. Unlike previous years, so I guess it makes this year a little bit more interesting in terms of who could win on the night. It feels a little bit more open!
A couple of surprise omissions happened though with Timothee Chalamet overlooked for his incredible performance in Beautiful Boy and not forgetting that, Bradley Cooper didn’t get a nomination as Best Director which therefore leaves Cuaron as the biggest lock of the entire ceremony in the Best Director category.
