The countdown to the Oscars has ended! Tonight’s the night!
It is my favorite award show- I just wish that it didn’t extend long into the night- almost 11:00 or Midnight- some of us have to work in the morning, Hollywood!
Despite the long run time- I do think the Oscars gives the spotlight to the often forgotten, yet extremely important aspects of a film. We get so caught up in the headlining stars, the story, even the soundtrack- that we forget there is a whole team of people behind the scenes who deserve recognition!
Granted, I haven’t seen all these films but I wanted to give my best choices for the other nominated categories:
Animated Feature Film: CoCo
Cinematography: Darkest Hour/Dunkirk
Costume Design: Beauty and the Beast/Phantom Thread
*Note: I don’t have the first idea about documentaries and I don’t want to choose one based on the cover alone! Sorry docs!
Film Editing: Dunkirk ( I still think it’s a little crazy that All the Money in the World isn’t nominated honestly- that team had to reedit the film after Christopher Plummer’s NINE DAYS of shooting!)
Makeup and Hair Styling: Darkest Hour
Music (Original Song): Remember Me from CoCo
Production Design: Darkest Hour
Sound Editing: Dunkirk
Sound Mixing: Dunkirk
Visual Effects: Kong: Skull Island
So, what do you all think of the nominations and my choices? Do you agree, disagree, love them, hate them? Comment below to let me know! Thanks!
