To help you get ready for the Oscars, we’ve prepared our very own PDF printable ballot sheet with all the nominees.
The Oscars are less than a month away, the nominations have been announced and we’re already making predictions on potential winners. This year’s frontrunner is Joker, leading the competition with its 11 nominations, but 1917, The Irishman and Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood come at a close second with 10 nominations each. After its Golden Globe victory for Best Foreign Film, Bong Joon-Ho’s Parasite continues its successful awards run with six nominations, including a record-breaking mention in the Best Picture category: no South Korean film has ever appeared in that category before. This year’s nominations came with a few disappointments, starting with Taron Egerton not earning the recognition he deserved for his performance in Rocketman. Not only that, but Lulu Wang’s The Farewell and Pedro Almodóvar’s Pain and Glory definitely deserved a mention in the Best Picture category, while Rian Johnson’s Knives Out should have gotten more than a single nomination (for “Writing – Original Screenplay”).
There were, however, a few pleasant surprises too. Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit earned 5 nominations, including one to Scarlett Johansson for “Best Actress in a Supporting Role”. Brad Pitt was recognised for his incredible performance in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood, a role that might earn him the very first Oscar of his career (for “Actor in a Supporting Role”). His co-star Leonardo DiCaprio is also nominated, but the competition will be high in the “Actor in a Leading Role” category, as the other nominees are Joaquin Phoenix (Joker), Adam Driver (Marriage Story), Jonathan Pryce (The Two Popes) and Antonio Banderas (Pain and Glory).
This year’s ceremony will be airing on NBC on Sunday, February 9 at 8e/5p p.m., and we’ve put together a Printable Ballot Sheet to help you pick your favourites and guess the winners. Follow the link below to download the PDF file, and click on the image to open the .jpg file in high quality.
