Academy Awards 2021: Let’s see what oscar 2021 is up to!

academy awards 2021

The 93rd i.e. Academy Awards 2021 is all set to take place on the 25th of April, 2021. Initially, it was set to be held in February but it got postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Closing of Theatre. Canceling of all the festivals. And also a countless number of release delays all over 2020 just made the 2021 Oscar competition more curious. There are more than ample great films that are eligible to make this award season an interesting one.

One of the rules to get eligible to enter into Oscars has changed i.e., any film which initially planned for the theatrical release. And later made available through any of the commercial VOD services is eligible and is taken into consideration. But the standard rule to get eligible is that initial theatrical release is a must and should.

Some of the most amazing Films which are eligible for the Academy awards 2021 

 The 40-year-old version

The 40-year-old version academy awards 2021

The 40-year-old version directed, produced, and acted by Radha Blank started in 2020. Winning an award for the Best Director at Sundance Film Festival. And this year it won for the best screenplay. Radha Blank attempts a delightful, decent, and sensitive portrayal of an aging actor.

She gets to decide whether to sell out or to be true and honest to herself. It will be absurd if we do not cheer for her success. As we all know Academy rarely opts for comedy movies But I think The 40-year-old version is so brilliant and infectious that it deserves an award for its screenplay.

Sound of Metal

sound of metal academy awards 2021

The guy named Ruben, who is a heavy metal drummer suddenly loses his hearing. So, this work can be considered as one of the amazing work done by any of the Debutant director cum writer, Darius Marder. Riz Ahmed who plays the main lead clearly transmits the complicated frustrations of losing touch with the world around him.

No matter how hard he tries every single day to hold onto it. Eric Kohn stated that this film is one of the best movies in 2020. Marder engages his viewers within the borders of Rubins’s declining relationship with the world around him. And somehow he tries to construct a new world within himself. Moreover, Riz Ahmed’s amazing and convincing performance revolving around the soundscape echoes even in the total absolute silence.

Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom

Ma rainey's black bottom academy awards 2021

It almost seems unavoidable that at this point of Oscar time the Chadwick Boseman will land a nomination for Best actor. And of course, it’s a win, for his work as the intense trombonist in George C.

Chadwick Boseman is one of the actors who is very selective and also a perfect method actor. In this, he delivered an exasperating and resentful monologue stating that God can kiss my ass leaving all the viewers stunned with his work.

Another Round

Another Round oscars 2021 academy awards 2021

Denmark officially selected the Another Round. Which is directed by Thomas Vinterberg for the Best International Feature competition. This Film is too good that it actually deserves an outbreak category in the best actor competition for Mads Mikkelsen.

He is considered one of the best performances in 2020 by Eric Kohn Indie Wire. So, this film rises as one of the actor’s pleasant films, and this film is just a reminder that under all his broodiness, he is considered as one of the most cheerful actors.

Promising Young woman

Promising Young woman academy awards 2021

Emerald Fennel praised that the Promising Young woman flashed out of the gate in January 2020 with a wonderful premiere at the sundance film festival. And currently it is creating a lot of buzzes at the Oscar season after releasing in selected theatres on a Christmas day. And also after launching on VOD[ premium] on 15th of January.

Whether the  Emerald Fennel’s direction or script enters into the nominations of Oscar. But we can surely say that the leading lady named Carey Mulligan can easily enter into the nominations of best actress. However, Mulligan also won the best actress award from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association.

Collective

Collective academy awards 2021

Collective, a documentary film that is directed, edited, produced, and written by Alexander Nanau is one of the most enthralling thrillers we have ever seen. This film is one of the official selections of Russia. It is a contender in 2 lists: Best international feature and best documentary. Eric Kohn named this film collection as one of the greatest ever made on the journalism topic.

Wolfwalkers

wolfwalker academy awards 2021

Indie wire’s Eric Kohn, one of the senior-most writers stated that this is one of his favorite animated films of 2020. he added by saying finally Cartoon Saloon noticed his true potentiality. This ardent story of love and loss is the most visually captivating feature film this studio has ever made at the same time it’s very touching. This film has a true potential to enter into Oscars. However, this can give a great competition to Pixar’s soul film which is already on the list of Oscars.

The trial of the Chicago 7

The trial of the Chicago 7 academy awards 2021

Netflix’s Oscar ballot got off with a boisterous start with The trial of the Chicago 7 by Aaron Sorkin presenting a star-studded cast. Sorkin turns over as a powerful Oscar competitor with his powerful and brilliant dialogues that set out as sparkling real-life characters. And also with a high paced drama. However, this film already has as the contenders of Best Director, Best Picture, and also Best Screenplay. But Netflix couldn’t decide how to divide the Oscar categories for this huge Star-studded cast.

Time

time 2020 academy awards 2021

Bradley’s ‘Time’ is the most amazing film to enter into Oscar Nomination for the Best Documentary after gaining universal applause since its first premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. This film is considered one of the most beautiful and enduring pictures in America.

Crip Camp

crip cramp academy awards 2021

Netflix has arranged an award qualifying Release for Crio Camp. This documentary made by James Lebrecht and Nicole Newnham was initially premiered at Sundance Film Festival in January.
