Oscars 2021: the predictions and the favorites of Premiere

Nomadland will he succeed in the double film-director? Will Florian Zeller be awarded? Here are the favorites from the 93rd Academy Awards, as well as the editorial darlings.

This 2021 edition of the Oscars has everything to make history. For the wrong reasons: the pandemic which will inevitably impact it with the risk of causing its worst TV audience. But also for the happiest. The multiple trophies gleaned for several weeks by Nomadland indeed suggest – even if Mank is the most named – that Chloé Zhao could win both the Oscar for best film and best achievement. A double that only one director has succeeded so far: Kathryn Bigelow for Deminers in 2010. It should be noted that no woman had been nominated in the “direction” category since Greta Gerwig for Lady Birdin 2018 and that this 2021 edition is therefore already an exception since, in addition to Chloe Zhao, Emerald Fennell is also nominated for Promising youg woman

As for the actors, Chadwick Boseman stands out as the big favorite for his final role in The Blues of Ma Rainey. If he wins, he would become the first actor to receive the Oscar in this category posthumously. And alone, before him, James Dean had been nominated twice in these painful circumstances for East of Eden in 1956 and Géant in 1957 where he had respectively had to bow to Ernest Bornigne ( Marty ) and Yul Brynner ( The King and I ). It should therefore be different this year despite the presence of the already Oscar winners Gary Oldman ( Mank ) and Anthony Hopkins ( The Father ) or the outsider Steven Yeun, the hero ofMinari by Lee Isaac Chung, Golden Globe of the film in a foreign language, who could, in all the categories where he is named (film, director, actor, supporting female role …) come to defeat the forecasts

Side actresses, the game appears more open. Frances McDormand ( Nomadland ) certainly has a small head start in terms of prognosis, especially since nominated twice so far ( Fargo and Three Billboards: the panels of revenge ), she has always imposed herself. A third success would allow her to join Meryl Streep, one length behind the category record holder, Katherine Hepburn. But Viola Davis (already Oscar winner for Fences ) for The Blues of Ma Rainey and especially Andra Day for her amazing composition as Billie Holiday in Billie Holiday: A State Affair , crowned at the Golden Globes, seem more than serious competitors. .

As for the French, despite the absence of Deux in the foreign language film category which seems to be promised to Thomas Vinterberg’s Drunk , we will be watching the fate of Adrien Merigeau’s Genius Loci in animated short, to Frédéric Thoraval ( Promising young woman ) in best photography (where Nomadland op ‘ conductor Joshua James Richards seems to have a head start) to Nicolas Becker who, him, is favorite for the sound of Sound of metal and obviously at Fatherby Florian Zeller, nominated 6 times. If the march for best film seems a little high, it could triumph in the supporting female role thanks to Olivia Colman, even if the competition from Han Ye-Ri ( Minari ), seems formidable and more surely in better adaptation than Zeller co-wrote. with Christopher Hampton ( Dangerous Liaisons ). Note that in this category, only two French people have been awarded in the entire history of the ceremony: Pierre Boulle with Le Pont de la rivière Kwaï in 1958 and Costa- Gavras for Missing in 1983.

Finally, if in the animated film category, all the predictions give Soul the winner, we would like to see us triumph The Wolf People by Tomm Moore and Ross Stewart, a sumptuous French co-production which should have been released in our theaters last December and is one of the wonders that await us at the long awaited reopening of these.
