Once again it’s that time of the year The Oscar and Golden Raspberry Award nominations are out. Highlighting the Best and worst of film in 2018.
We begin with the Razzies as they were announced on Monday and will be given out before the Oscars. The Worst films of the year are among the following Gotti, The Happytime Murders, Holmes & Watson, Robin Hood and Winchester. Now among these are some of the films that lost the most money of the year. A noteworthy nomination is Donald Trump who picks up two as well as Kellyanne Conway and Melania Trump. Trump could be the second sitting President to take home the award for a Michael Moore film.
Enough of that for the 91th Academy Awards a show which won’t have a host for the first time in 30 years. The Best films of the year are among the following Black Panther, BlacKkKlansman, Bohemian Rhapsody, The Favourite, Green Book, Roma, A Star is Born and Vice. This year I’ve seen 3 of the 8 films nominated so that’s a lot for me. It’s the first time that a “superhero” movie picked up a nomination with Black Panther, Spike Lee has finally picked up a Best Director nomination. With Animated Feature it’s between Incredibles 2, Isle of Dogs, Mirai, Ralph Breaks the Internet and Spide-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, This could be the first time in a long while since Disney/Pixar might not win with Spider-Man picking up some big awards so far this season. In Best Foreign Language Film it’s between Capernum (Lebanon), Cold War (Poland), Never Look Away (Germany), Roma (Mexico) and Shoplisters (Japan). If you noticed Roma is nominated for both Best film and Foreign Language Film and it has a good chance to win them both and this would be the first time that it would ever happen.
We will have to wait about a month for both of these events to happen so stay tuned.
