Could ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ skyrocket in Oscar nominations? Not counting
While it may seem like all is well for the candidate, that’s usually when chaos is around the corner. Let’s separate potential contenders and impersonators in six major Oscar categories.
- Blockbusters vie for the best spots in the best photography fields.
- A race for two for Best Actress and a talented trio for Best Actor.
- Supporting stars Angela Bassett and Ke Hoi Quan are the easiest bets.
the best: Producers and directors usually know what’s going on before we do. So, Schuyin is “Fabelmans”, “Banshees”, “Everything Everywhere”, “Top Gun: Maverick”, “tarProducers Guild of America and Directors Guild of America all nod.Elvis,” Grove, PGA, British Academy Film Awards That fame nomination has a good shot as well.”Babylon,” boasts Grove and Screen Actors Guild ensemble honors.
remaining: High profile PGA candidateAvatar: Path of Water”, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”, “Glass Onion: Knife Out Mystery” Rather than polarizing, it seems ready to take the last three spots.”whale,” but don’t count the love for Brendan FraserOther possibilities include popular Indian action epics.”RRR,” BAFTA – Reading “Quiet on the Western Front” SAG Nominated “Talking Girl” – If “Babylon” (which has mixed reviews) or “Top Gun” fails, they could all compete for the slot.
the best: It’s like a three-man race between Golden Globe winners Austin Butler (“Elvis”) and Colin Farrell (“Banshees”), as well as “Whale” star Fraser heartfelt speech after winning Critics’ Choice AwardIt’s safe to say those guys are rock, especially when they’re nominated for the Screen Actors Guild and BAFTA.
remaining: The last two Oscar cycles have seen the SAG and Oscar contingents of best actors match up precisely. But if not, waiting in the wings to scoop a spot are newcomers such as BAFTA candidates Paul Mescal (“Aftersun”) and two globe candidates, Diego Calva (“Babylon”) and Jeremy Pope (“Inspection”). next, tom cruiseperhaps the face of “Top Gun” with a few voters rooting for him.
Best Actress Award
remaining: The other three spots are less clear.oscar winner Viola Davis (“The Woman King”) put together a nice resume with SAG, Globe, BAFTA nods, and fellow SAG candidates Daniel Deadweiler (“til”) and Ana de Armas (“blonde”) is also mixed. Michelle Williams – Undoubtedly, anyone who has done well as a support candidate this season has a chance thanks to the momentum of ‘Fabelmann’.Also watching from the outside are the Globe candidates Margot Robbie (“Babylon”) and Olivia Coleman (“Empire of Light”).
Best Supporting Actor Award
the best: No one in Hollywood is more beloved than the ‘Everything Everywhere’ star/Globe Award winner/SAG nominee Ke Huy Quan More recently, it’s due to his comeback storyline and overall Cinderella Mojo. Usually every year he has at least one actor running the table and Quan is at the top of his class for this Oscar. Brendan Gleeson’s “Banshees” duo, Barry Corgan the same as “Good Nurse” Antagonist Eddie Redmayne was nominated for SAG, Globe and BAFTA respectively.
remaining: SAG nominations for the last remaining spot, or maybe two, considering ‘The Good Nurse’ isn’t a major awards player Paul Dano Contending for “Fabelmans”. His co-star, Judd Hirsch, is also a possibility. IX Choice nominee Brian Tyree Henry (“Causeway”) and BAFTA nominee Michael Ward (“Empire of Light”) also have a chance.
Best Supporting Actress Award
the best:Angela Bassett Dominating Wakanda, it appears to be the lead-up to this category and the most fluid acting field so far. The ‘Black Panther’ star has won Gold at the Globe Awards and Critics’ Choice Awards, as well as earned SAG and BAFTA nominations.Kelly Condon (“Banshees”) and Jamie Lee Curtis (“Everything Everywhere”) – still seeking her first Oscar nod after decades in the business – is also a safe bet, earning SAG, Globe, Critics Choice and BAFTA nods respectively. I am earning
remaining: What remains is almost free entry, with plenty of talented competitors. Curtis’ co-star Stephanie Hsu won the SAG nom for her breakout role. Hong Chau (“The Whale”) impresses her SAG and her BAFTA contingent, with Dolly de Leon (“Triangle of Sadness”) Carey Mulligan (“She Said”) is Globe and BAFTA nominated.and don’t miss her Janelle Monae (“Glass Onion”) or Jessie Buckley (“Women Talking”) are both Critics Choice nominated and critically acclaimed ensemble standouts.
the best: A staggering 4 out of 5 DGA candidates are in this category each year. In other words, World Champion Spielberg, Critics’ Choice award-winning duo Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert (“Everything Everywhere”), Todd Field (“Tar”) and Martin McDonagh (“Banshees”). , Joseph Kosinski (“Top Gun: Maverick”).
remaining: So who is the weird guy? His best picture contender is probably Kocinski, as he is the only person to date not to have won a major award. Sarah Polley (“Women Talking”) managed to avoid the all-male field following her second straight win by a female filmmaker. James Cameron Thanks to the box office success of his “Avatar” sequel, there’s a puncher’s chance. Baz Luhrmann (“Elvis”) or SS Rajamouli (“RRR”) managed to break out of the wave of popularity for their films. But a dark horse might emerge from the BAFTA slate. Park Chan-wook (“Decision to Leave”), Edward Berger (“All Quiet on the Western Front”), Gina Prince-Bythewood (“The Woman King”).
