Based on nominations alone, West Side Story is a frontrunner for Best Picture. The film has received mixed reviews from critics, but has received positive reactions from the audience. Critics love Ariana DeBose’s performance as a young orphan who falls in love. It also has hit the shortlists for makeup and sound, so that is a plus.
Despite the lackluster reviews, the biggest contenders for Best Picture aren’t causing any box office fires. Last year’s Best Picture winner, COVID, was a rare disappointment. Fortunately, the Best Picture winner, West Side Story, failed to make $4 million in the U.S. The general crowdpleasers, Dune and Gone Girl, have all earned nods.
Despite the lackluster nominations, CODA has been making waves and could become a big contender. The actresses’ performances in the film are powerful and play directly to voters’ hearts. In addition to Garfield and Haim, the film has a compelling cast and has a strong female ensemble. In the case of the Best Actor category, however, Coen and Sormand are also in the running.
The two leading contenders for Best Picture are “The Help” and “Spy” (starring Olivia Colman). Both films received SAG and Golden Globe nominations, and both are expected to win. Neither film has received much precursor attention, but both have strong casts and are worthy of recognition. And in addition to the two big winners, there’s a surprisingly strong influx of films and actresses.
In terms of Best Actress, both The Reader and Belfast are a serious contender. Despite the two, Belfast is slowly losing ground to The Power of the Dog. In fact, the latter is the clear frontrunner among critics and has won twelve Best Picture awards. But both are still in the race, so which one will win? If you’re wondering what the 2020 Oscar frontrunners are, keep in mind that they’re not yet confirmed.
Among the other movies in the race, “The Tragedy of Macbeth” and “The Last Days” are two early frontrunners. They’ve both received a number of critical accolades, and they’re both excellent films. But which one should win the Oscars? They’re both a worthy choice, but the first is definitely a contender.
Among the current Oscar frontrunners, Belfast, the film directed by Kenneth Branagh, is a thriller that follows a brutal western. The movie’s cinematography is outstanding, and it has a unique choice between black and white scenes. In addition to the two major contenders, “Drive My Car” is also a strong candidate for Best Picture based on nominations.
