Here are the names of the main contenders in the forthcoming Oscar Awards in January 2020.
We talk about four main nominations: “Best Movie”, “Best Director”, “Best Actress” and “Best Actor”.
Leading experts on entertainment publications ranked the top Oscar nominees in 2020. Lists with common chances of winning are published on the Gold Derby website. Here are the main nominations.
According to experts, the best movie should be Martin Scorsese ’s crime drama “The Irishman,” which was released on Netflix on November 27. Quentin Tarantino has a little less chance of winning “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood” . The third challenger is Marriage Story with Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver in the lead roles.
The Korean thriller “Parasites” and the military drama “1917” by Sam Mendes also have chances . “Joker” in this list takes only ninth place.
The list of directors applying for the Academy Award is quite logical: Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino , Pon Jun-ho (Parasites), Sam Mendes and Noah Baumbak (Marriage Story).
In the nomination of actresses, Renee Zellweger for the film “Judy”, Scarlett Johansson for “Marriage Story” and Charlize Theron for “Scandal” have the most chances to win. Also among the nominees: Saoirse Ronan (“Little Women”), Aquafina (“Farewell”) and Cynthia Erivo (“Harriet”).
The main contender for the Academy Award for Best Actor is Joaquin Phoenix (Joker). Adam Driver (The Marriage Story) and Robert De Niro (The Irishman) will compete with him . Antonio Banderas (“Pain and Glory”), Leonardo DiCaprio (“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”) and Eddie Murphy (“My Name is Dolemite”) have less chances.
