Parasite is among the nominees as this year’s critically acclaimed foreign film. It’s also the first-ever Korean film to land in the category.
Little Women also joins the group despite its director being considered a snub amongst Best Director nominees. Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman has been critically acclaimed but pretty much non-existent in terms of award wins at the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards.
Rounding out the nine Best Picture nominees for 2020 are Ford vs Ferrari, Marriage Story, and Jojo Rabbit. All of these movies are considerable contenders, but there are a few leading the pack with under a month until the show.
Here’s how they stack up in terms of Best Picture odds (via OddsShark):
- Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood +110
- 1917 +250
- Parasite +350
- Joker +1200
- The Irishman +1600
- Marriage Story +2500
- Jojo Rabbit +5000
- Ford vs Ferrari +6600
- Little Women +6600
Based on those odds, Ounce Upon A Time… In Hollywood is the odds on favorite to capture the Oscar this year. It previously won Best Picture awards at both the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards. In addition, Brad Pitt has won for Best Supporting Actor at both shows.
However, there’s always the potential for surprises in this category. 1917 claimed the Best Picture Drama award at the Golden Globes, giving it a chance. There’s also Parasite and Joker which could surprise. The latter of these films has the most nominations (11) heading into the Academy Awards.
Watch the 92nd Academy Awards on Sunday, February 9, 2020, on CBS starting at 6:30/5:30c.
