Well these nomination are not so awaited like those of Best Picture or Best Actors or Best Directors , this is what we have in hand now , so let’s check them out and count them down like Deadpool does !

Academy Award for Music (Original Score)

Endgame score was one of the pluses of the movie
Avengers : Endgame Score Composed by Alan Silvestri

Starting off with One of the Backbone of a film’s success is its score . The scores given below are really deserving the award , but in my opinion Us or Ford V Ferrari or Endgame (Fanboy inside me) should bag it .

The scores, listed in alphabetical order by film title :

  • Avengers: Endgame”
  • “Bombshell”
  • “The Farewell”
  • “Ford v Ferrari”
  • “Frozen II”
  • “Jojo Rabbit”
  • “Joker”
  • “The King”
  • “Little Women”
  • “Marriage Story”
  • “Motherless Brooklyn”
  • “1917”
  • “Pain and Glory”
  • “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker”
  • “Us”

Academy Award for Music – Original Song

Now secondly we get to the original song , this is the same Academy Eminem got for Lose Yourself in 2003 .My opinion on this category is Sir Elton John’s Love Me Again from Rocketman has a high probability bagging the award . These 15 are filtered from 75 other songs , very hard selection of course !

The songs and films are as follows:

  • “Speechless” from Aladdin
  • “Letter To My Godfather” from The Black Godfather
  • “I’m Standing With You” from Breakthrough
  • “Da Bronx” from The Bronx USA
  • “Into The Unknown” from Frozen II
  • “Stand Up” from Harriet

  • “Never Too Late” from The Lion King
  • “Spirit” from The Lion King
  • “Daily Battles” from Motherless Brooklyn

  • “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again” from Rocketman
  • “High Above The Water” from Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am
  • “I Can’t Let You Throw Yourself Away” from Toy Story 4
  • “Glasgow” from Wild Rose      

Academy Award for Visual Effects

The CGI used was critically praised and it was equal to Marvel's CGI
The Irishman Starring Robert De Nero ,Al Pacino,Joe Pesci and More nominated for its high quality de-aging technique

One of the biggest category the nominations given now is no doubt the Academy for Visual Effects. Many big budget flims are nominated in this category . Hope Endgame bag the academy this time . Last time Infinity War lost the Academy to First Man . Ten films are running in the Visual Effects category for the 92nd Academy Awards. Irishman , Endgame or Alita – any movie bags the Academy won’t be a surprise to me

 The films, listed in alphabetical order by title, are:

  • Alita: Battle Angel
  • Avengers: Endgame
  • Captain Marvel
  • Cats
  • Gemini Man
  • The Irishman
  • The Lion King
  • 1917
  • Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
  • Terminator: Dark Fate

Academy Award for International Feature Film (Before known as Foreign Language Film)

The Film Was critically acclaimed
South Korea’s Parasite Film

Shame that no Indian film got nominated here . Hoped Gully Boy would make it but bad luck again ! Ten films are now nominated for the 92nd Academy Awards. Ninety-one films were eligible in the category , but like Gully Boy they aren’t making a cut here  .The films, are from and there title as follows:

  • Czech Republic, “The Painted Bird”

Makeup and Hairstyling

Makeup was on par with Dark Knight Joker
The Joker film – Makeup of Joaquin Phoenix was widely praised

Well this aint my turf as well , but I have seen 4 films in this category – Rocketman , Maleficent 2  , Joker and Once upon a time in Hollywood  . I couldn’t see the makeup like those in jury but I hope Joker or Rocketman gets it , you would know why if you have seen those movie .Well the films in this list are:

  • Bombshell
  • Dolemite Is My Name
  • Downton Abbey
  • Joker
  • Judy
  • Little Women
  • Maleficent: Mistress of Evil
  • 1917
  • Once upon a Time…in Hollywood
  • Rocketman

Documentary Feature

I really don’t have any idea on documentaries  as they are not my turf , but I have seen Apollo 11 documentary . It was really amazing as they were mostly archival footage, including 70 mm film previously unreleased to the public, and does not feature narration, interviews or modern recreations .Hope it Bags the Prize
