Here we are again – headed for the end of Awards Season with the nominees for the 91 Academy Awards released this morning.
As usual, the Academy gets more right than wrong, but some of the picks and noms are really wild – like the disappointing Vice getting eight noms and Bohemian Rhapsody actually getting a Best Picture nom (where Rami Malek single-handedly lifted an average musical bio pic with a truly great performance).
So, without further ado, here the nominations – with a bit of commentary in select spots.
All year I’ve been hearing about how good the trailer for A Star Is Born was and all the early praise for just the movie trailer made me want to avoid seeing this and I’m a huge Lady GaGa fan. However, I don’t like walking into a movie with any preconceived notions, a film like this that has been praised to the high heavens before it was even officially screened. I believe nearly every version of this film has gotten award season love and the latest installment will be no exception. The story is timeless.
