Ranking the Top 10 Movies Expected to Take Home an Oscar in 2021
The anticipation for the Academy Ads are fast approaching, as the awards ceremony will take place on Sunday, March 3rd at : p.m. ET, ABC. It seems “Everything Everything All At Once” is the most likely to win Best Picture, as it has already won major awards from Screen Actors Guild Ads, Producers Guild Ads, Directors Guild Ads, and the Writers Guild’s Ads. The jury isn’t quite sure who will win in the other categories. The Post critic Johnny Oleksinski predicts who will or should take home the prize at Oscar night. “Everything Everywhere at Once” will be the predicted finalist for Best Picture. This film is acclaimed as innovative but also straddles genres, was released by A.
The Films “The Fabelmans”, “All Quiet on the Western Front”, “Avatar: The Way of Water”, “The Banshees of Inisherin”, “Elvis”, “Tar”, “Top Gun: Maverick”, and “Triangle of Sadness” along with “Women talking” each went on get the award for Best Picture. Of these “The Fabelmans” – Steven Spielberg’s poignant look back at his youth – was an emotionally uplifting film in the entire year, despite its initial frontrunner status reducing the chances of it winning.
It’s widely believed the fact that Todd Field’s “Tar” earned him The Directors Guild Award and the Critics Choice Award for Best Director. However, had James Cameron been nominated for “Avatar: Way of Water”, it is likely he would have been awarded this award. Field produced a well-crafted, poignant thriller which warranted debate among the people who watched it. The other nominees were Martin McDonagh’s “The Banshees of Inisherin” and Steven Spielberg’s “The Fabelmans” and Ruben Ostlund’s “Triangle of Sadness”.
Rea Riseborough “To Leslie” Michelle Williams, “The Fabelmans” Michelle Yeoh, “Everything Everywhere All at Once” Best Actor is likely to win, or should win Austin Butler’s portrayal as Elvis Presley in “Elvis” has been hailed with deserved appreciation and applause. It spans decades of time and doesn’t depend on tricks. The movie has garnered widespread popular and critical acclaim. Fraser has captured the attention and love of millions around the world with his performance.
The well-known actor whom made his mark by playing the iconic character of Short Round in “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”, has delivered stirring performances in this season being successful on nearly every project he has taken on. Barry Keoghan, who plays the comical but sad character of the neighbor on “The The Banshees from Inisherin” and deserves to be recognized as the best supporting actor. This category also includes Brendan Gleeson (“The Banshees of Inisherin”) as well as Brian Tyree Henry (“Causeway”) along with Judd Hirsch (“The Fabelmans”).
Stephanie Hsu, who starred in the movie “Everything Everywhere At Once” at last week’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, was nominated as Best Assisting Actress. It’s unfortunate that this race has been decided against Bassett and Curtis because Hsu’s contribution in her performance as Yeoh’s daughter and the multiverse’s antagonist must not be forgotten. Jamie Lee Curtis and Kerry Condon ought to be recognized for their roles in “The Banshees of Inisherin”, and “Everything All Over the World at Once”.
To conclude, Barry Keoghan has delivered excellent performances in some of the most acclaimed projects of the season and deserves the Best Supporting Actor prize. His iconic role as the character in “Indiana Jones and the Temple to Doom” is a testament to his skill, and his dramatic performance as the hilarious, yet poignant neighbor in “The Banshees Of Inisherin” is a perfect example of his power as an actor. While the other nominees have delivered outstanding performances, Barry Keoghan is just the same and is deserving of this recognition.
