After a crazy year of unpredictability with film releases and theater survival, today we celebrate the films that were released with the 93rd Annual Oscars!
This year's ceremony was pushed back from it's usual February/March dates in hopes of being able to safely hold an in person ceremony. Through the hard work of The Academy, and of course the result of the vaccines, they were able to put together a safe ceremony. This year's ceremony will still look different, taking place in multiple locations aside from The Dolby Theater, including Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles and London. Some of the musical performances will be taking place from all around the globe, including the new Dolby Terrace at the soon to open Academy Museum, all the way to Husavik, Iceland.
Some have said that this years Oscars should carry an asterisk due to the different circumstances of film distribution and viewing in 2020, but that notion is honestly just stupid. This year's nominees and the nominated films have told stories and accomplished just as much, if not more than plenty of films in the past. Several of this years nominees far exceeded the expectations I had for them. With all of that being said, here are my picks for this years nominees. Don't miss the Oscars at 5PM PT on ABC.
