Oscars 2021 predictions

The list of nominees has been posted, so it's time, once again, to place your bets :

I must say that, due mainly to the Covid crisis, I haven't seen any of the movies. But I could well see Carey Mulligan winning the best actress one. And later on, like every year, I'll post the songs, and my opinion on them. But it sure gonna be a very strange ceremony.

    I have literally not seen a single film nominated in the big categories. Not that I am that much of a film buff, but normally, one has seen at least seen a few here and there. There are 21 films in Best Picture, Director, the 4 Acting categories, Best Animated and the 2 Screenplay categories. Not a single one.
    Here in Germany, Mank and The Trial of the Chicago 7 are obviously on Netflix and Sound of Metal is apparently on Amazon Prime (I may watch that tonight), but the other 5 Best Picture nominees are supposed to get released in cinemas at various dates in April - only that I don't really see cinemas being open in April with the way things are going.

    So going off of nothing but discourse I've heard:
    Best Picture: Nomadland
    Best Director: Chloe Zhao (Nomadland)
    Best Actor: Chadwick Boseman (Ma Rainey's Black Bottom)
    Best Actress: Vanessa Kirby (Pieces of a Woman)
    Supporting Actor: Daniel Kaluuya (Judas and the Black Messiah)
    Supporting Actress: Glenn Close (Hillbilly Elegy)

    I am not going to wade into Animated and the Screenplays as I have literally no clue, here. Pixar, Aaron Sorkin and the Best Picture pick (in my case Nomadland) are always good bets, though.

    I suppose, reading through the nominations, Billie Eilish will be eligible next year for NTTD.

    Havent seen most of them, only real comment is that it is disappointing Soul is not a Best Picture nominee.

    Agreed on Soul - I thought it was a better film than the nominated ones I've seen (Mank and Chicago 7).

    A film I'm rooting for is Another Round. Too bad Mads didn't get a Best Actor nomination - he was getting big last minute buzz.

    As promised, the songs :



    Not bad at all.



    A possible winner.



    That one too. At least in the ESC ;)



    If that one wins, it will enter a very exclusive club : songs in a language other than english winning. But it would deserve it.



    No, I don't think it's going to win. Still, nice effort.
