the oscars, also known as the academy awards, are one of the most prestigious events in the film industry, and if you're like me, you're always looking forward to the nominations! so today I'm going to share our predictions with you.
in recent months, three films have led the way and received top nominations from the producer', directors' and actors' guilds: "oppenheimer", "barbie" and "killers of the flower moon". these three films will probably top the list of oscar nominees, but I think the competition from other films this year is pretty strong. let's take a look to our predictions...
1. BEST PICTURE
— anatomy of a fall
“a woman is suspected of her husband's murder, and their blind son faces a moral dilemma as the main witness.”
— poor things
“the incredible tale about the fantastical evolution of bella baxter; a young woman brought back to life by the brilliant and unorthodox scientist, dr. godwin baxter."
— the holdovers
“a cranky history teacher at a remote prep school is forced to remain on campus over the holidays with a troubled student who has no place to go.”
“this love story chronicles the lifelong relationship of conductor-composer leonard bernstein and actress felicia montealegre cohn bernstein.”
“barbie and ken are having the time of their lives in the colorful and seemingly perfect world of barbie land. however, when they get a chance to go to the real world, they soon discover the joys and perils of living among humans.”
— killers of the flower moon
“when oil is discovered in 1920s oklahoma under osage nation land, the osage people are murdered one by one - until the FBI steps in to unravel the mystery.”
“the story of american scientist j. robert oppenheimer and his role in the development of the atomic bomb.”

last but not least, we couldn't forget to mention the only national production on the shortlist for the hollywood awards. with 17 awards to its name, "um caroço de abacate" is the portuguese short film on its way to the oscars. this shortlist is produced by the amazing andreia nunes and frederico serra!
