The Oscar season began this year with Everything, Everywhere All at Once emerging at the top from being an underdog. Well, it’s not your regular Oscar “movie” so to say and it happens to be a sci-fi comedy with martial arts and a dildo fight sequence. Most likely, Everything, Everywhere, All At Once is going to win the best film Oscars this year.
It is what one can safely call an eccentric hit and it has won top honors for its actors, writers, producers, and directors, which happens to be a clean sweep that only four other films in history have managed. And all four went on to win at the Oscars and one would safely assume that would be the case with Everything Everywhere All at Once. Since co-directors Kwan and Scheinert took the top prize from the Directors Guild, they are almost certain to repeat it again.
However, there is an old school of Oscar voters who might rather opt for the blockbuster Top Gun: Maverick or Netflix’s World War I saga “All Quiet on the Western Front”, which has pulled off a Bafta, which is another surprise. However, Everything Everywhere has been nominated across the board and the category remains fluid before the big night.
As for Best Actor, there is Austin Butler, Collin Farrell, Brendan Fraser, Paul Mescal, and Bill Nighy in the running. Brender Fraser will most probably win.
The best female actor also has a star-studded line-up with the likes of Cate Blanchett and Michelle Yeoh fighting for the top spot. Of course, there is Ana de Amas, Andrea Riseborough, and Michelle Williams in the fray. We place or bet on Michelle Yeoh.
And right in the race is Naatu Naatu in the original song category, much to the delight of Indians across the world and of course the Telugus. And we feel Naatu Naatu will create history in a few hours.
Keep your fingers crossed and be prepared for an exceptional gala as always!
