What films should I watch out for?

With that somewhat dizzying list, it might seem difficult to know where to start with your online Oscars bets in Pennsylvania. Never fear, we’re going to break down who we reckon will be the big winners on the night and where they might scoop their awards…


This first world war epic is an experience to watch. It’s intense to say the least. 1917 was released to wide critical acclaim and, interestingly, although it has quite a few stars, most of them are relegated to relatively minor roles. That didn’t affect the impact though, and we reckon it will be recognized in many categories in the Academy Awards this year.

It’s been nominated in 10 different categories. We think the most sure fire bets for this movie is Best Sound Mixing, Best Cinematography and Best Director.


Parasite is a South Korean film that caught the wider world by surprise. It’s a masterpiece and is equal parts hilarious and grim. If you haven’t seen it already, this is one you don’t want to miss.

It’s nominated in six categories and we’re going to go out on a limb and say that this could be a good contender to win Best Picture. It’s by no means a done deal, but it is such a triumph of a film, we reckon the big prize could go to this gem. If it doesn’t scoop the top prize, we reckon it’s a no brainer at the very least for Best International Feature Film.


Have you seen this film? Since it was release it’s put chills down the spine of anyone who’s watched it. Joker is very much a super villain film, putting an interesting twist on the usual very shiny genre. Although, having said that more and more complex comic book movies have been released in recent years.

Anyway, we think Joker is definitely going to win Best Original Score and probably Best Actor too. Of course, there’s nothing definite in the world of the Oscars, so don’t come crying to us if it doesn’t.
