Some years a powerful industry consensus forms around one film, as when”Argo” (2012) and”Birdman” (2014) spanned the significant guild prizes on their way to Oscar victories for Best Picture. However, this year has been divided. “Green Book” was looking great when it won Best Picture at the Producers Guild Awards, but then director Peter Farrelly was snubbed at the Oscars. “Black Panther” won the SAG Award for the ensemble cast, but it too underperformed in the Oscar nominations.
Then”Roma” won the Directors Guild Award and subsequently followed that up with a BAFTA victory for Best Picture. And it’s tied with”The Favourite” as the year’s most nominated movie at the Oscars. So it’s our front-runner for Best Picture. But movies have appeared strong in recent years only to be triggered at the finish line. “The Revenant” (2015) looked like the top contender before it was upset by”Spotlight” And right then”La La Land” (2016) looked like it had everything sewn up till it had been bested by”Moonlight” in among the greatest upsets in history.
