This week we’re taking advantage of the extended awards season to do our best of 2020 two weeks late. We discuss our favorite movies of the year, including Promising Young Woman, Nomadland, Minari, and Wolfwalkers, and we continue to be mystified by the support for Mank. We also talk about how these films are faring in the strange Oscars sweepstakes of 2020, and what late-breaking films might upset the protacted Oscar race. Join us!
As we approach the end of the year, we do the normal thing and discuss the state of the 2020 Oscar race. Yes, that’s right, despite all of 2020’s shenanigans, there WILL be a 2020 Academy Awards ceremony…eventually. We take a look at the prospective field of nominees and all the historic possibilities this year, including women dominating the Best Director field and the odds of a Chadwick Boseman double-nomination in both acting categories.
