BAFTA Awards 2018: Will Hit Film Win Oscars?

BAFTA Awards 2018: Will Hit Film Win Oscars?”

There's fashion. There's tradition.

Jordan Peele's Get Out was undoubtedly one of the best movies of 2017 and is wholly deserving of the four Oscars it's up for at this year's Academy Awards.

History could be made during this year's ceremony, from the first African-American being crowded Best Director to the first woman winning the coveted award for Best Cinematography.

Speaking of the acting categories, they're a foregone conclusion. Either way, it's important to understand that watching the Oscars is less about seeing who wins than it is about witnessing our cultural sensibilities and how the Academy chooses to recognize them.

Gary Oldman is the popular frontrunner for best actor due to his inspiring and indistinguishable impression of Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour. "Social media matters more every year as the academy gets younger and as the generation that uses it begins to be Oscar voters, but it is in no way representative of this group of some 7,000 people".

'Oscar winners will inevitably score higher-priced endorsement deals as brands look for celebrities who can influence millennials-our most color-blind and multicultural generation yet'.

Will win: Oldman. Should win: Oldman. She is phenomenal here.

Will win: McDormand. Should win: McDormand. How much of that will you bring to the Oscars?

Will win: Rockwell. Should win: Harrelson. Before them, Jennifer Lawrence was cast in the first installment of the Hunger Games franchise after making her Oscar debut, nominated for 2010's Winter's Bone.

Will win: Janney. Should win: Janney. The film is bold, visionary, and given that it's about a woman who falls in love with a sea creature, yes, a bit unusual. But it's Letts who makes the biggest impression, playing Washington Post Company board chairman Fritz Beebe opposite Meryl Streep's publisher Katharine Graham in the urgent journalism drama. Christopher Nolan's accomplishment with Dunkirk was so technically proficient in terms of sound and editing that it's truly a filmmaking marvel. There's a woman, which is somewhat rare for the Oscars. Mostly, the industry and movie buffs alike seem happy that someone as talented and hard-working as del Toro is getting recognized for what is so obviously a labor of love.

In 1999 Michael Jackson purchased the 1939 Academy Award for Best Picture, given to the producers, of "Gone With The Wind" for £1,237,50 ($1,542,000).

The following are some highlights of the last 90 years.

Seth Meyers opened up the Golden Globes with a direct joke about the Me Too movement, stating, "Good evening ladies and remaining gentlemen". It's also tragic to see up close that the some people responsible for what's often touted as the biggest monoculture event of the year - at least in film - are so disengaged from culture to the point of downright laziness. Looking back on the past year of film, there's quite a lineup of nominees who don't fit within the Academy's typical white, hetero-normative male focus: Get Out, Lady Bird, Call Me By Your Name, The Shape of Water, et al. The classic film Titanic made history in more ways than one during the ceremony. Unlike "La La Land", "Three Billboards" was meant to agitate.
