The biggest awards night of the year is here and we’re all ready for the celebration of movies, stunning red carpet looksand the inevitable Will Smith Slapgate Jokes. For us, this year’s Oscars are even more special as three Indian films are set to win big on the awards night.
Apart from ‘Naatu Naatu’ from SS Rajamouli’s RRR be nominated for Best Original Song, The Elephant Whisperers by Kartiki Gonsalves and Guneet Monga was nominated for Best Documentary Short and anything that breathes by Shaunak Sen, Aman Mann and Teddy Leifer was nominated for Best Documentary Feature.
While we’re thrilled to see Indians having a time at one of the most famous awards shows, this year also has an unprecedented number of first-time nominees, like Brendan Fraser, Paul Mescal, Barry Keoghan and Stephanie. Hsu.
The favorite this year seems to be Everything everywhere all at once with a total of 11 nominations, including nods in all major categories for the film’s cast and crew.
Waiting to see who wins what at Oscars this year, here are some of our predictions for the big night…
Best film: Everything everywhere all at once
Our unverified clairvoyant senses tell us that Everything everywhere all at once will be the big winner of the evening. The film has already won most of the awards at previous ceremonies, including the Golden Globes And SAG Rewards.
Best Directors: Daniel Kwan and Daniel Schienhart (Everything everywhere all at once)
This one is close. To be honest, we can’t decide between the manufacturers of Everything everywhere all at once and Todd Field for Warehouse, another major contender for the night’s big prizes. There are also other biggies in the category, including Steven Spielberg (The Fabelmans) and Martin McDonagh (The Banshees of Inisherin), but both Daniels have won the Directors Guild which has predicted Best Director Oscar wins 66 times over the past 74 years.
Best Actress: Michelle YeohEverything everywhere all at once)
Unless the Academy pulls a RuPaul and crowns two winners, at Trinity and Monet’s joint all stars Victory of season 4, there will be only one winner between the two big names of the evening: michelle yeo and Cate Blanchett (for Warehouse). From the pattern we’ve seen at recent awards shows, it’s clear that Best Actress is going to be a race between the two terrific performers. Our prediction is that Yeoh will win the Oscar. This is the first time an Asian identification actress has been nominated in the category and the performance of the Malaysian actress was superlative in the film.
Best Actor: Austin ButlerElvis)
We all know the Oscars love a biographical role. It makes us believe that Austin Butler’s portrayal of Elvis Prestley could win Best Actor at the Oscars. Butler has already been validated by the Golden Globes and the BAFTAs earlier this year, which also puts him in a good position to win this award. But Brendan Fraser (for The whale) also won in the same category at Critics Choice and SAG, so will Fraser get the better of Butler in the ultimate race for the grand prize? It is doubtful because The whale was not nominated in the Best Picture category, tipping the scales in Butler’s favor.
Best Supporting Actress: Jamie Lee CurtisEverything everywhere all at once)
Like the Best Actress category, this one is also very difficult to predict. Jamie Lee Curtis looks the closest to a win based on the fact that Everything everywhere all at once will sweep at the Oscars based on most predictions. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Angela Bassett might sweep and take the victory over Curtis in the end, but the Academy hasn’t been very kind to Marvel movies in the past, so this might be Curtis’ night after all.
Best Supporting Actor: Ke Huy Quan (Everything everywhere all at once)
Actor Ke Huy Quan’s story has been the healthiest this season, with the actor’s incredible comeback earning him the Best Supporting Actor award at nearly every major award ceremony. price this year. His brilliant performance undoubtedly deserves an Oscar. While there’s no doubt that the other actors in the category are amazing, Quan definitely gets our vote.
