92nd Academy Award Nominations & Thoughts

Image
So here we are with the nominations for the 92nd Academy Awards, and I have thoughts. Yes, there was a certain inevitability to a lot of what happened. In such a good year, it can be argued that there simply weren't enough slots to represent all that was offered in theaters. Still, I have some thoughts on things, but I'll just throw out now that the lack of representation for on-screen diversity (let alone behind the camera) is certainly noticeable. For all the strides found in seeing a South Korean film, for example, get nominated so much for the first time, some things haven't changed much. Anyway, here's the list of nominees, with some of my own commentary to go with it. The ceremony won't air until February 9, and I'll have more Oscar-related content in the weeks to come. For now, enjoy what I've put together in regards to this year's batch of potential award winners.
