90 Oscars – Film Lover Thoughts

What a night! How many of you stayed up all night to watch the ceremony? Believe me, while I write this on my way to work my eyes are itching but… totally worth it! What an incredible night, I must say I loved this edition for its simplicity and how easy going it was. No big surprises of the night, here are my thoughts on the highlights:

The Shape of Water
🎬 Best Movie
📣 Best Director: Guillermo del Toro
🎼 Best Original Music score
✏ Best Production Design
I loved every second of The Shape of Water and I’m not surprised for its all deserved nominations and wins. Guillermo created a unique univers where words are not needed but love and comprehension.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
👵 Best Actress: Frances McDormand
👨 Best Actor: Sam Rockwell
Three Billboards is a top favourite this year and I couldn’t agree more with the results. Frances and Sam make a great duo of seriously troubled people who, at the end, are not as troubled (or even more than before?).

I, Tonya
👩Best Supporting Actress: Allison Janney
I haven’t seen the movie yet but I know how powerful this women is and I cannot wait to see her performance.

The Darkest Hour
💄Best Make Up
👴Best Supporting Actor: Gary Oldman
Even if he’s a tremendous actor, he was up against the best performance of the year by Timotheé Chalamet.

Blade Runner 2049
📽 Best Cinematography 🎞Best Visual Effects
Blade Runner was a breathtaking visual experience, very well deserved awards.

Call me by your name 📖 Best Adapted Screenplay
This is an incredible movie, my top favourite this year and even if I’m really happy for this win I wish it could have won many, many more awards.

📑Best Original Screenplay
Are you kidding me? No comments.

🎚Best Sound Editing
🎛Best Sound Mixing
I personally admire Christopher Nolan and his films, but this year there was really splendid movies and the competition was high. Dunkirk power resides on its sound.

🖌Best Animated Movie 🎤Best Original Song
Very well deserved best animated film, not so much about Best Original song, competing against “This is me” from the greatest showman
