Let’s face it, a lot of Oscar nominated movies are just boring as hell existential crisis stories. In 2019, however, we’re hopefully gonna see some fresh names and faces. 2018 has had its ups and downs in terms of movies, but let’s not touch upon the worst of them. Instead, we’ll talk about movies who will definitely be nominated and win that golden statuette!
1. The Favorite
There seems to be a new rule in the film industry: “if Yorgos Lanthimos produces a new film, that film will take at least one award home”. Remember how in 2015 his bizarre movie “Lobster” almost snagged an Oscar? Well, in 2018 his new movie “The Favorite” will 100% be nominated as well. It’s a hilariously dark comedy about Queen Anne’s jolly reign, with extravagant costumes, brilliant acting and a magnificent scenario.
2. Black Panther
Can Marvel finally get an Oscar for one of their movies? I think they have a 99% chance to get multiple awards for their Black Panther movie.
3. Can you forgive me?
An incredible life story of the American writer Lee Israel (played by Melissa McCarthy), who started faking celeb biographies after going bankrupt. She wrote letters, supposedly belonging to well-known writers, from Dorothy Parker to Noël Coward, and sold over 400 documents to dealers around the world. If that premise doesn’t intrigue you, you should see a doctor.
