What an event.. ahaha
As for my Oscars 2020 challenge, at least I tried.. 😅
I watched 4 out of 9 best picture nominees and 2 out of 5 best cinematography nominees.. I really shouldn’t have planned to do this at the same time as I was going on a trip. Now no excuses, I’m sure if I had really really committed, I could’ve pulled through and watched them all. But sometimes life just doesn’t work out that way.
Here are my reviews for the films I did watch:
I also watched Little Women (2019) but I didn’t write a full review. My ratings are as always on my Letterboxd.
Now for the ones I didn’t watch in time, I will definitely still watch them sometime soon. It just didn’t happen before the Oscars. I’m most excited to watch The Irishman, 1917 and Jojo Rabbit!
I think I will write reviews for these, maybe just mini reviews, though. I don’t know, yet.
And now for the academy awards themselves..
Parasite won best picture and 1917 won cinematography.
I wasn’t surprised by 1917 winning cinematography. Although I haven’t seen the film, yet, the shots I have seen are incredibly beautiful. So I’m sure it’s well deserved.
Parasite winning best picture, on the other hand, that was not expected. And Bong Joon-ho winning best director, what! Both are definitely deserved. I had enjoyed Parasite but I had expected the Academy to go for one of the other movies. Same goes for directing. But I’m super happy Parasite and Bong Joon-ho won. Definitely deserved.
Another thing I want to mention is Taika Waititi winning an Oscar for Jojo Rabbit. I haven’t seen it, yet, but I’m a fan of Taika and I’m so happy he won! Another deserving win! 😊
Well, these are my two cents on the Oscars 2020. I truly hope to do better with this challenge if I decide to do it again next year!
