In just a few hours, we will know the winners of the 94th Academy Awards, airing at 8 p.m. EST on ABC. There are have been numerous controversies and complaints regarding The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences (AMPAS), but I won’t get into that right now. Instead, I will do my best to make predictions for all of the 23 categories, which should be aired lived (OK, I guess I will get into it a little), along with possible spoilers and who/what I’d like to see win. Let’s see how I do!
I will post predictions and my own picks closer to the awards date (once I’ve seen every single nominee, or as many as possible), so for now here’s where/how you can watch all of the nominated films, listed here by streaming service or method of viewing:
Now that the winners of the [much-delayed] 93rd Academy Awards have been announced, I decided to take a look at the winners — in all categories — from the past 10 years (the 2011-2020 seasons) and rank them. I will at some point also post a full Oscar history ranking, although there are many films I have yet to see (mainly older ones).
Happy 93rd Academy Awards, everyone! In just over 12 hours (hopefully), we will know all of the winners for the 2021 Oscars. And, what a long, seemingly never-ending, fascinating awards season it has been. The 2020 ceremony aired before the COVID-19 pandemic became widespread, lockdowns began, and Hollywood momentarily shut down.
Fact: As of this past Sunday, I watched every single film (including the shorts) nominated for an Oscar this year. It’s not usually that easy, as some films — especially international ones — may be hard to find, either in a theater or on streaming.
Remember when Parasite won Best Ensemble at last year’s SAG Awards? That was pretty dope, as the young people say. This year’s winners are both difficult and easy to predict, if that makes any sense. But, I’ll do my best.
When Oscar nominations were announced last week, the Documentary Feature category was among the most surprising; acclaimed docs like Dick Johnson Is Dead, All In, and Boys State were all shut out, in favor of five diverse films, ranging from terrific to a disappointing and ineffective. Here are my reviews of the nominees, in order from best to worst.
There are more vegans in the ‘biz than you’d think, and more and more celebrities — and everyday folks — are opting for a cruelty-free lifestyle.
Here is a list of all of the nominated films, in order of nominations, and where to watch them. Most feature-length films are available to rent, if you don’t have any of the main streaming services, and some of are in limited theatres (as always, follow COVID protocols).
I’ve used some fancy, schmancy math — based on nominees’ previous wins and total nominations thus far — as well as my knowledge of what the Academy tends to like, in order to predict the nominees. Hopefully, the nominees will be more diverse and representative of what America looks like now.
