How the Oscar race might be affected by award wins

Give me five! It was a “very nice” night for Sunday “Borat Subsequent Movie” and the other Golden Globes Winner and the already unpredictable path to Oscars could take a few odd turns.

The Globes are known for being villains with their picks, and victories there don’t always translate into Academy Awards glory. If that were the case, “1917” would have had a much better Oscar night a year ago. Instead, “Parasite” ruled the day after winning the Globes for foreign language film – the same category as the celebrated ones “Threatening” just won and gave it a boost. And during the suddenly notorious Hollywood Foreign Press Association is separate from the Academy’s electoral body. Oscar voting begins this Friday ahead of the March 15th announcements. And some people might pay attention Globes winners list.

Here’s how the ceremony on Sunday night could affect the Oscar race:

‘Nomadland’ is still what comes closest to being a top picture leader (at least for now)

Even without the best cast seat at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, Frances McDormand’s acclaimed road trip drama is an eye-catcher for a nomination for best picture and probably the favorite to win. The best drama in the film Globes wins, paired with Zhao’s best director’s win on Sunday helps – which is not that only three films (“Argo”, “12 Years of a Slave” and “Moonlight”) have had the best drama Globes and the best since 2010 Picture at Oscars.

“The Trial of the Chicago 7” and “Minari” are in to win it too (and maybe “Borat”).

“Chicago 7” and “Minari” received important awards on Sunday and are considered the best picture bait: Aaron Sorkin grabbed the best script for “Chicago 7” and “Minari”. excluded from the best drama categorieswas chosen as the best foreign language film. (As “Parasite” has proven, Oscar voters will no longer be shut down by subtitles.) The two films will also compete for the best SAG cast later this month.

Even in a wider field, “Borat” could have a harder time entering the best picture race. Fun fact in his favor: the last 10 films win bestComedy / Musical at the Globes all made it.

Andra Day and Rosamund Pike could be real players

McDormand, Carey Mulligan (“Promising Young Woman”) and Viola Davis (“Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom”) are the best bets to get into the best actress category. Andra Day, who wins at Globes, does wonders if she gets a seat and maybe the thing wins – a late Hulu release for “The United States versus Billie Holiday“Even with dubious reviews for the film, but awards for it, it was a boon to Day’s chances. The same goes for Pike, whose dark comedy” I Care a Lot “recently appeared on Netflix and has since become one of the service’s most popular films.

Surprise! Jodie Foster is fighting again

OK, maybe it’s just the thought Jodie Foster zooms into the Oscars in her pajamas with her wife and her dog is too delicious. But that’s a good thing to add an old favorite to the mix. SAG nominees Glenn Close (“Hillbilly Elegy”), Olivia Colman (“The Father”), and Yuh-jung Youn (“Minari”) are favorites in the supporting actress category, and perhaps Foster – a two-time Oscar winner Who not nominated since 1995 (for “Nell”) – rejects one of the youngsters, be it “Mank”, Amanda Seyfried, “Borat”, Maria Bakalova or “News of the World”, child prodigy Helena Zengel.

Let’s just give Chadwick Boseman the Oscar

In reality, the late star is likely to be running the best acting table at this point – and getting your handkerchiefs ready because if his widow Taylor gives Simone Ledward more moving acceptance speeches As on Sunday, there will be many tears in Boseman’s honor. The only question is how many Oscar prizes he could win. Daniel Kaluuya’s supporting actor win at the Globes is a good sign for the star “Judas and the Black Messiah” in the SAGs, but Boseman is also nominated for “Da 5 Bloods” there – as well as leading actor for “Ma Rainey” – and has the chance to be nominated twice at the Oscars. And when you consider how loved Boseman is, anything is possible.
