92nd Oscar Nominations Announced
Updated: Jan 31, 2020
Well, the Oscar nominations have been announced this morning, and I found the list of nominations to be very interesting and surprising, to say the least.
I’m surprised Rocketman did not get much recognition at the Oscars outside of Best Original Song. I was hoping that Taron Engleton would get some recognition, and how did the Academy branch overlook the lavish costume design on Taron Engleton?
And, I’m especially shocked that Frozen II did not even get a nomination for Best Animated Feature Film. However, not only am I okay with its song, “Into the Unknown”, getting a nomination, since that was a great song anyway, but I did just see Klaus not too long back, and I’m really tickled to see this getting nominated for Best Animated Feature Film.
I ought to shout out my biggest congratulations to the crew behind Joker. They managed to craft a movie from comic book lore and made some truly mesmerizing, compelling social commentary out of it, especially through Joaquin Phoenix as performance as the Joker. As a result, this earned him a nomination for Best Actor, and the movie a nomination for Best Picture, the second for such a movie after Black Panther. Good for them!
I’m also impressed by the nominations Parasite received. Normally, I don’t see foreign movies having as much luck with Oscar nominations as American films do, and the two other foreign films that were just as lucky were Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon from 2000, and Roma from last year. Good for them as well!
Congratulations also to the crews behind the following movies I managed to see throughout the year:
A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood
Ford v Ferrari
How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
Toy Story 4
And, congratulations in advance to the crew behind 1917! I was already interested in seeing the movie before their big score, so now I really can’t wait to see 1917. 😊
