Oscar nominations 2020

Like every year, the Oscar nominations capture everyone’s attention and interest, especially to consider which is actually the best film. Although from an theoretical point of view the Oscar should represent the best film, it often represents the most successful film, which is not necessarily the best.

This year the most successful film was Joker and in fact Joaquin Phonenix was nominated for 11 nominations. If the film is really the best there would be much to debate. I honestly don’t like it, although I haven’t seen it. Already the idea of ​​going to see the film of one character extrapolated from another makes me lose my curiosity.

Nominations are also often given as career awards. There would be many famous actors who could receive it because they still lack the statuette. Among these is certainly Bred Pitt. But there are also many other names, such as Tom Cruise who, however, this year is not among the candidates for the Oscar and who next year could certainly win the statuette with his new film and sequel TOPGUN2.

While in the United States the winners of the statuettes are expected, in Italy Checco Zalone conquers the cinemas with his Tolo Tolo. And another film that is very controversial is the one about Bettino Craxi, which offers a rehabilitated image of the politician, who has always been considered a condemned man, despite being exiled to Tunisia to escape the condemnation of Italian justice.

 

This is a partial list of all the Oscar nominations, the main ones.
