UPDATED: May 3, 2021
AWARDS PREDICTION COMMENTARY: A convention for the previous 16 years, I’ve at all times thrown photographs in the dead of night within the week instantly following the Academy Awards. For the primary time, my year-in-advance high choose, Chloé Zhao’s “Nomadland,” received image and director. Can lightning strike twice?
The final two years have included ideas that 2019’s “Harriet” from Kasi Lemmons would have an enormous Academy debut, with high spots for eventual nominee Cynthia Erivo, however the love ending there. In 2018, I suspected “The Irishman” from Martin Scorsese would arrive in time, however alas, it was pushed to 2019.
Other previous decisions have included 2017’s “Phantom Thread” (then untitled), 2016’s “Silence” (though I did have “Moonlight” within the predicted 10), 2015’s “The Good Dinosaur” (Pixar needs to be inching towards a second, proper?), 2014’s “Inherent Vice” (why not one other attempt for Paul Thomas Anderson?), 2013’s “The Counselor” (at all times circling the Ridley Scott overdue narrative), 2012’s “Lincoln” (most likely the runner-up to “Argo,” which was additionally predicted) and 2011’s “War Horse” (Steven Spielberg is rarely a nasty alternative).
While it’s thrilling to be a promising awards contender, nobody likes to be the frontrunner this early, so I ought to preface this with: we don’t know something but.
I also needs to stress, credited producers, launch dates, and rankings are topic to alter…in different phrases, let’s not take this too significantly.
