Award Show Gold: The Movies and Actors We’re Most Likely to See During Award Season
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
The newest offering from the Spider-Man universe is Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, an animated film that just won Best Animated Feature Film at the Golden Globes. The story follows a young Mile Morales as he discovers his new-found spider powers in the middle of a crisis with the multiverse at stake. Plus, the movie features the voices of Shameik Moore as Miles Morales, as well as stars like Mahershala Ali, Brian Tyree Henry, and Hailee Steinfeld.
As an animated film, it’s unlikely to be nominated for anything other than Best Animated Feature, but the fact that it’s a Marvel movie would make this an interesting choice for the winner.
A Star is Born
Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut could not have gone better. One day after the Golden Globes, people are already screaming about how A Star is Born was robbed of Best Motion Picture. It’s very likely this will get nominated for a slew of Oscars, including Best Actor and Best Director for Cooper, Best Actress for Lady Gaga, and Best Supporting Actor for Sam Elliot, as well as nods for the music and screenplay.
Eighth Grade’s achingly awkward star Elsie Fisher might be a dark horse contender for Best Actress at this year’s Oscars. She was nominated at the Golden Globes, losing out the Best Actress in a Comedy trophy to Olivia Colman, and despite her young age is likely to be nominated again at the Oscars. Writer and director Bo Burnham found her on YouTube and made her audition three times before she secured the part. Fun fact, She graduated eighth grade one week before she started filming.
