Oscars 2020: personal thoughts and favorites

February 7, 2020
Oscars 2020

This year was great for cinema industries. There are a lot of beautiful movies released in 2019 so the Oscars running 2020 is really interesting. Last year was not so good, the winner was Green Book with Viggo Mortensen, nice movie but not a masterpiece. In this edition we have great films: 1917 by Sam Mendes, Parasite by Bong Joon-ho, Once upon a time… in Hollywood by the great Quentin Tarantino, Irishman directed by Martin Scorsese, Marriage story with Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson, Little Women from the Alcott’s book, Ford v Ferrari with Matt Damon and Christian Bale, the outsider Jojo Rabbit, Joker by Todd Phillips with Joaquin Phoenix. These films have great screenplays, cinematographies, interpretations… The irishman, the two popes and Marriage story are produced by the streaming giant Netflix. I wrote my personal list for Oscars winning 2020. I’ve made main categories and these are my favorites for the final rush.
