The 93rd Oscar Nominations

The Oscar noms have came in rolling on a silver platter. So here I’m breaking down the following categories: Best Picture, Director, Original Screenplay, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress. I’d like to make it clear that I’ve only actually seen a handful of these films.

Best Picture ( with Cast )

The Father – Anthony Hopkins, Olivia Colman, Imogen Poots, Rufus Sewell

Judas and the Black Messhiah – Daniel Kaluuya, LaKeith Stanfield, Domique Flashback, Jesse Plemons

Minari – Steven Yeun, Han Ye-Ri, Yoon Yeo-Jeong, Alan S. Kim

Proising Young Woman – Carey Mulligan, Emerald Fennell, Bo Burnham, Alison Brie

Sound of Metal – Riz Ahmed, Olivia Cook, Paul Raci, Lauren Ridloff

The Trial of the Chicago 7 – Sacha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, John Carroll Lynch

Original Screenplay

To be honest, I’ve always considered original screenplay a greater award than adapted screenplay. Not only because I personally prefer writing original materials, I also consider original works a greater challenge, whereas an adapted screenplay could theoretically be taken word for word from any given source material.

Judas and the Black Messiah – Will Berson and Shaka King, story: Will Berson, Shaka King, Kenny Lucas and Keith Lucas

Minari – Lee Isaac Chung

Promising Young Woman – Emerald Fennelll

Sound of Metal – Darius Marder & Abraham Marder, story: Darius Marder and Derek Cianfrance
