Joker’s Oscar Nomination For Best Picture Is A Bigger Feat Than Black Panther’s

It Might Actually Win Best Picture

Not to be rude to the people who work in costume design or sound mixing, but Best Picture was the only major accolade Black Panther was nominated for. Compare that to Joker, which has more nominations than any other movie this year, including the big ones—Best actor, best director (For a superhero movie!), and best adapted screenplay, along with all the other technical nominations that very few people actually care about.

Parasite And 11 Other Foreign Language Films That Were Nominated For An Academy Award For Best Picture

Babel (2006)

Directed by four-time Oscar winner Alejandro González Iñárritu, Babel is a somber, sprawling multi-narrative ensemble piece, and one that completes the filmmaker’s “death trilogy,” following 2000’s excellent Oscar-nominated Amores Perros and the English-language 2003 movie, 21 Grams. The film, which features Arabic, Spanish, Japanese and more, portrays four interrelated storylines, told in non-linear fashion, which portray a series of tragic or life-altering events happening Morocco, Japan, Mexico, and the United States. Babel was nominated for seven Oscars, including Best Editing, Best Original Screenplay, two Best Supporting Actress nominations, Best Original Score (for which it won), Best Director and Best Picture. Ultimately, much like Letters From Iwo Jima, which was another foreign-language movie nominated in the same field in 2007, Babel lost Best Picture to The Departed.

The Batman’s Zoe Kravitz Has Some Great Reasons For Wanting To Play Catwoman

Well, that’s something to go on, at least, though it’s about as vague as everything else we’ve heard about the film’s plot and tone so far. Zoe Kravitz will star alongside Robert Pattinson, Paul Dano, Peter Sarsgaard, and Jeffrey Wright, who recently tweeted that he was on his way to start filming his part in the movie. The Batman hits theaters on June 25, 2021.

Netflix’s A Fall From Grace Has Big Twists Tyler Perry Doesn’t Want You To Spoil

You heard him! Don’t post details that will give it away!

Ed Sheeran’s Star Wars: Rise Of Skywalker Role Was Not What Anyone Expected

Who is that dude? No idea. Do you? Every other “easter egg” cameo listed in the Disney story Star Wars linked to had a name — from Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich playing stormtrooper FN-2802 to composer John Williams as Oma Tres, a Kijimi bartender. (Oma Tres, rearranged, spells Maestro.) There are plenty of other cameos listed, and we knew of most of them — including Wedge Antilles, who is more than a cameo to me. It also turns out one of the droids in Babu Frik’s (voiced by Shirley Henderson) workshop is an old battle droid, as seen in The Phantom Menace.

Tom Cruise’s Jack Reacher Scars Were ‘Meticulously Placed’ For Book Fans, Who Never Noticed

The 2012 release was a big hit – making $218 globally on a $50 million budget. It marked the first of many collaborations between Tom Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie, who made Edge of Tomorrow, Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation, and Fallout. The pair are gearing up to shoot the Mission: Impossible 7 and 8 back-to-back for summer 2021 and 2022 release dates.

That Time Taika Waititi Said He’d Be ‘Fired Within A Week’ If He Made A Star Wars Movie

Back then, the future of the franchise was uncertain, given the shake-up of two key creative teams. Now, it seems to be on equally shaky ground, as the studio tries to determine what direction it will take Star Wars in next. The lackluster response to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker from both fans and critics probably isn’t helping. On the other hand, the positive response and buzz surrounding The Mandalorian is a promising sign that there could be more good things to come.
