After being pushed back two months to April, we have finally reached the Oscars for the 2020 – extended 2021 awards season. To explore this, Meet Me at the Movies host Noel T. Manning invited several critics on to discuss a specific category and then share their vote for Best Picture contender. I’ve been very open about my love for Minari, so that part won’t be a big surprise. What may is my chosen category and what I think should win within it. Forgive the cryptic nature of the previous statement, but you really should watch the episode to see what me and my fellow critics are in favor of.
What do you think of my selection? Any thoughts on the rest? Be sure to let me know in the comments below.
If you could vote on the Oscars, what would be your choices? That’s the setup for this week’s Meet Me at the Movies. We’ve invited several film critics to share their thoughts (and votes) on some of this year’s Academy Awards races. Join us for this pre-party celebration of the best in cinema.
