We movie fans have been speculating on the Oscars for a while. Would Quentin Tarantino finally get his Best Director award, or get a film that wins Best Picture for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood…? Would Martin Scorsese get another Oscar for The Irishman, perhaps his swan song? Well the Golden Globes just happened, and for better or worse they are a potential glimpse into what might happen with the Oscars. They can help shape a narrative. Now, it seems like the film that may be ahead in the Oscars race is…1917?
Yes, the big winner of the Golden Globes on the film front was Sam Mendes’ World War I epic 1917. Well, that and Joker, but that’s only going to go so far at the Oscars. Maybe Joaquin Phoenix can win Best Actor, but that’s about it. However, is 1917 now a member of a triumvirate of films that can be considered the Best Picture frontrunners?
