10 popular films competing for Oscars, who will win this year?

“The Power of the Dog” is the undisputed hot spot of the awards season.

Jane Campion (“the piano”), who has been silent for nearly 12 years, took this new work and won the best director award at the Venice Film Festival. At the same time, she was also the director who won the most awards in the Oscar outpost.

The film tells the story of Phil Burbank, a farmer in the western United States, who humiliates and tortures his brother-in-law and nephew in every possible way after his dependent brother is newly married.

Until one day, he discovered that he actually had love for his nephew Peter.

On the foreign forecast website GoldDerby, its best film odds are firmly ranked first, which can be described as an Olympic seed player.

At the same time, the extremely delicate and restrained performance of “The Power of the Dog”, and its complex and emotional interpretation of human nature, helped Benedict win multiple awards for the “Best Actor” honor in this round of awards season.

At present, Benedict Cumberbatch has become a strong contender for the best actor Oscar.

The biggest question now is not whether “The Power of the Dog” can be nominated for an Oscar, but how many Oscar nominations it can get?

Overcoming “The Power of the Dog” and winning the first place at the Toronto Film Festival, “Belfast” also gained a lot during the awards season. It also led the Critics’ Choice Award with 11 nominations.

“Belfast” is written and directed by Kenneth Branagh, and the film incorporates many of his childhood memories.

The film mainly tells the story of a young boy who grew up in Belfast, the capital of Northern Ireland, during the turbulent period of the late 1960s.

Because the memories in the film are all black and white images, it is called “Branagh’s “Rome” by some media and audiences.

Combining the inevitable tragedy of the era with the family bond of love and affection, Kenneth Branagh finally walked out of the negative influence of mediocre commercial films such as “Cinderella” and “Murder on the Orient Express”. He offered a sincere and popular family era film.

If you love “Rome”, I suggest not to miss this one.

“Licorice Pizza”

Director: Paul Thomas Anderson
Starring: Alana Haim, Cooper Hoffman, Bradley Cooper
MTC score: 90 | Rotten Tomatoes: 92% fresh | IMDb score: 8.5

10 popular films competing for Oscars, who will win this year?

“Licorice Pizza” is one of the ten best films of the American Film Association, and has been on the list several times during the award season.

At present, “Licorice Pizza” has won one of the four major outposts of Oscars-the National Critics Association Award for “Best Picture”, “Best Director” and “Best Breakthrough Performance Award”.

Set in the 1970s, the film tells the story of high school students Alana and Gary growing up, running around and falling in love in the San Fernando Valley in 1973.

However, it is worth noting that “Licorice Pizza” is currently caught in the controversy that discriminates against Asians and offends women. I don’t know whether it will eventually affect the college’s evaluation.

However, the leading actress Alana Haim performed strongly during the awards season, and the nomination for the best actress must be a good deal.

“West Side Story”

Director: Steven Spielberg
Starring: Ansel Elgort, Rachel Zegler
MTC score: 86 |Rotten Tomatoes: 93% fresh |IMDb score: 8.1

10 popular films competing for Oscars, who will win this year?

“West Side Story” is the famous director Steven Spielberg’s tribute to classics and his childhood dreams. This is Spielberg’s first challenge to a musical.

The film and “Belfast” also lead the Critics’ Choice Award with 11 nominations.

The film is adapted from the Broadway musical in 1957. It tells the battle between “Jets” and “Sharks” on the streets of New York in the 1950s, and the love between Tony and Maria who belonged to different gangs.

Affected by the epidemic, “West Side Story”‘s box office performance was not good, but the media’s reputation was soaring, and nominations for the awards season were softened.

“West Side Story” has secured multiple nominations including Oscars for “Best Picture”, “Best Director” and “Best Actress”.

Starring Rachel Zegler won the National Critics Association “Best Female Lead” honor. She is also the airborne actor of Disney’s live-action “Snow White”.

I don’t know whether his performance in “West Side Story” can reverse people’s views on casting issues.

“Drive My Car”

Director: Ryûsuke Hamaguchi
Starring: Hidetoshi Nishijima, Touko Miura, Reika Kirishima
MTC score: 90 |Rotten Tomatoes: 100% fresh |IMDb score: 8.0

10 popular films competing for Oscars, who will win this year?

Some people say: 2021 is the year of Ryûsuke Hamaguchi. This sentence was confirmed again during the awards season.

As the most important Japanese director in recent years, Ryûsuke Hamaguchi’s upper work “Wheel Of Fortune And Fantasy” won the Jury Prize at the Berlin Film Festival, and his new work “Drive My Car” continued to work hard and is expected to win the Oscar for “Best International” “Film” award.

The film is adapted from Murakami Haruki’s short story about a man who discovers that his beloved wife is cheating. After his wife’s death, he and the hired female driver gradually opened up his true heart in a conversation.

The biggest threshold for viewing this film is 179 minutes, but watching it quietly, you will also be touched by the deep emotions under the plain narrative and experience the unique charm of the Ryûsuke Hamaguchi movie world.

“King Richard”

Director: Reinaldo Marcus Green
Starring: Will Smith, Demi Singleton, Saniya Sidney
MTC score: 76| Rotten Tomatoes: 91% fresh| IMDb score: 7.6

There is no shortage of biopics competing for Oscars every year, but the protagonist of the film is not the tennis superstar Williams sisters, but their father Richard Williams.

Sports biopics have always not aroused much interest from fans. The highlight of this film is that it does not beautify the character prototype too much, and Richard on the screen is still authoritarian and paranoid.

This point of authenticity won the film critics’ favor and scored 94% of Rotten Tomatoes.

However, people pay more attention to the acting of Will Smith than the movie itself.

The depth and level of performance and impeccable character charm earned him the honor of “Best Male Lead” by the National Critics Association.

Will Smith will also use this film to launch a third impact on the Oscar actor, let us wish the Emperor good luck together.

Director: Pablo Larraín
Starring: Kristen Stewart, Timothy Spall
MTC score: 63 |Rotten Tomatoes: 83% fresh |IMDb score: 6.9

Compete for Oscar biopic +1.

The film focuses on the difficult Christmas that Princess Diana spent at Sandringham Manor after the news of Prince Charles’s affair spread.

The title was chosen as “Spencer” instead of “Diana”, and the intention to focus on Princess Diana’s own spiritual world rather than her identity is quite clear.

This film is not a traditional biopic, but a “fable adapted from a true tragedy”.

The irony and dramatic interpretation of the whole film is not only the highlight of the film, but also the failure of the film.

The implantation of a large number of images that are too crafty makes the film present a lifeless and exhausting atmosphere, which causes the film to miss most of the awards.

Whether “Spencer” can nominate an Oscar for “Best Picture” also needs a question mark.

Kristen Stewart, who has been recognized by film critics frequently during the award season, is bound to win the Oscar nomination this time.

If the impression of Kristen Stewart is still in “The twilight saga”, it is recommended to redo the judgment after patching.

“The Lost Daughter”

Director: Maggie Gyllenhaal
Starring: Olivia Colman, Dakota Johnson
MTC score: 81| Rotten Tomatoes: 92% fresh| IMDb score: 6.8

10 popular films competing for Oscars, who will win this year?

Maggie Gyllenhaal gained a lot from picking up the guide tube. Following the “Best Screenplay Award” at the Venice Film Festival, the film won the Gotham Independent Film Awards four awards.

The film is adapted from a novel by Elena Ferrante. The film tells the story of the heroine experiencing a seemingly meaningless event while on vacation by the sea.

This made her feel overwhelmed by the difficult choices she made as a mother and the impact these choices had on her and her family.

Olivia Colman vividly interprets the anxiety and contradictions faced by middle-aged women. The immersive experience of motherhood makes people fear marriage and childbearing again.

She is already the Oscar queen, she is expected to nominate the Oscar for Best Actress again with this film.


Director: Sian Heder
Starring: Emilia Jones, Troy Kotsur
MTC score: 75| Rotten Tomatoes: 96% fresh| IMDb score: 8.1

“CODA” swept multiple awards at the Sundance Film Festival. It is one of the most expensive paper napkin films of the year. The film was also shortlisted for the Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice Awards for “Best Film”.

The film is remake from “La famille Bélier”, focusing on Ruby, the only hearing high school girl in the deaf-mute family. She helps her family manage the fishery business every day.

After joining the high school choir, Ruby’s love for singing moved the choir leader, who decided to let Ruby choose between his dream and his family…

The film’s main character portrays the group as deaf and mute, but does not deliberately sensationalize, and only touches people’s hearts with the natural flow of true feelings.

Facts have proved: Chicken Soup for the Soul never goes out of style. Whether you can win the prize and be soft, depends only on how the screenplay and interpretation are done.

“CODA” is a clear stream in a group of obscure literary and artistic films competing for Oscars, and it is recommended not to miss it.

“Tick, Tick…Boom!”

Director: Lin-Manuel Miranda
Starring: Andrew Garfield / Alexandra Shipp
MTC score: 74 Rotten Tomatoes: 88% fresh IMDb score: 7.7

Another song and dance film during the awards season.

“Hamilton” screenwriter Lin-Manuel Miranda directed his debut, and Andrew Garfield opened his voice for the first time on the screen, and his sincere interpretation made people cry.

This film is the story of Jonathan Larson, the creator of the famous musical “Rent”.

The whole film is adapted from the musical of the same name, interspersed with biopics, and tells the story of the artist’s legendary and short life.

The film guest lineup is star-studded, and half of the Broadway actors have appeared. It is definitely a must-see for the audience who loves musicals.

Garfield, who was nominated for the best actor Oscar with “Hacksaw Ridge”, once again attacked the Oscar after 5 years.

I wonder if he can become the second post-80s actor after Eddie Redmayne this time?

In addition to the above-mentioned films, there are many outstanding films in the awards season that deserve attention, such as “The Eyes of Tammy Faye”, “The House of Gucci”, “Nightmare Alley”, etc., all of which have won this month.

As the so-called “In the Heights”, “The Last Duel”, “The French Dispatch” and other films that had been optimistic about the so-called “In the Heights”, “The Last Duel” and “The French Dispatch” were affected by factors such as excessive release time, poor box office and insufficient stamina, they basically withdrew from the most popular movies. The competition for the best film.

However, in order to avoid the Winter Olympics, the 2022 Oscars will be postponed to March 27 next year.

It’s hard to say whether there will be any changes within 3 months.

The only certainty is that a large wave of good movies has hit, and we can seize the time to make up!
