2020 Academy Award Nominations
I believe this strategy can correctly predict the Best Picture winner for (almost) any year's Oscars, simply by tallying up points based on what categories the films were nominated for. The thinking comes down to focusing on these categories, for these reasons, with this point system:Best Picture NomineesOf course, start with the best picture nominee list.
The 88th annual Oscar nominations have finally been announced. So I think it's worth going over the full list of nominees, and discussing thoughts on who should win, who will (likely) win the top awards, and why (on both accounts).
The Academy Award for Best Picture should go to the film that will stand the test of time. The award should go to a film that will resonate with audiences for decades to come; a film that we can all collectively look back on and say that was truly one of the best films that came out that year. A film worthy of being honored and remembered.Unfortunately, that is not always the case.
The polls are in! 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' sweeps the Oscars with a total of 4 awards. No doubt deserving every single one of them. The film was original, clever, funny, and strange. Not to mention the sets and costumes were beautiful and packed with amazing color. It seemed to me like every award was being handed off to anyone associated with the film.
This year is full of amazing choices. In my opinion one of the best years in a long time. Speaking in terms of actual good content to choose from instead of just remake after remake and dry comedies. My favorite and most anticipated category is Best Picture. There are two films that have caught a lot of attention this year, 'Boyhood' and, 'Birdman'.
