I love movies and going to the cinema! I certainly haven't seen all the movies that are nominated, but among my favorites are:
ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE: Daniel Day Lewis - Actually, for this category, Phantom Thread
is the only movie I have seen and I quite liked it.
ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE: Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water
) - I enjoyed the movie, but what I liked the most was Sally Hawkins interpretation. It felt so true and so real, and of course, requires great skill to play someone who can't speak, But more than that, I really loved her interpretation.
ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE: Octavia Spencer (The Shape of Water
) - Only because I love Octavia, but I highly doubt she gets it. In the movie I didn't see anything spectacular or different from the things she does.
ANIMATED FEATURE FILM: COCO - By all means Coco! I loved the story! It made me cry, it made me laugh, it made me become obsessed! I loved it!
ORIGINAL SONG: This is me (The Greatest Showman) - My sister is so mad about this nomination. She says that it is too much of a "Pop" song and didn't deserve the nomination. Maybe she is right, but I love the song. I instantly knew that was the "power" song of the movie. The message is great, and the song is very catchy. I really like it!
BEST PICTURE - I really liked Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri
and Phantom Thread
. I generally like more, movies with themes and style similar to Phantom Thread, but this time, I think I'll go with Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri
. The movie had me on the edge of my seat all the time, it was interesting and I enjoyed it a lot.
I would also like Beauty and the Beast
to win the two categories it is nominated, but I highly doubt that happens. I did enjoy the movie and fell in love with all the art production.
Only a couple of days more to know the winners!!
