Watched Minari yesterday which means I have seen all the nominees except The Father. After last year's win for Parasite, I wouldn't be surprised if this dark horse snuck in and took this award from Nomadland, which for me is the frontrunner, but if it was up to me, this award would still go to The Trial of the Chicago 7



Welcome to the human race...
So I heard.

It will be close between The Father and Nomadland. I chose Nomadland. It was heart warming and brilliant in an otherwise bleak year. The best actress category is a hard call this year!

Sadly this past year, without having been able to visit the cinema as it's been closed, have not been able to sit through even a single one of the nominees prior to the awards, which is the first time that has happened since like 1986. So have zero idea or opinion about this year. Have been told Judas and the Black Messiah is very good though, a friend I trust has recommended it very highly, so will be checking it, and all the others, out at some point down the line.



Mr. Holden, I did not see a poll for the most important category at the Oscars. Best Foreign Film. And Best Documentary too. Are they in the latter pages?



Not sure if it's coz of Covid or not. Almost all categories are tight. Apart from animated segment, most other awards, there are two or three choices, the Academy can give the award to anyone and it won't be a bad pick.

Nope. Every year I create polls for "The Big Eight" categories - Picture, Director, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, Adapted Screenplay, and Original Screenplay - as well as Animated Feature (because enough people are interested) and Cinematography (because it is one of my personal favorites). Any of the other categories anyone would like to make polls for, have at it.

Still really behind, but I did get Sound of Metal in over the weekend, which was excellent. Will try to get the rest in ASAP!

Minari up next.
