With the Oscars coming up next week, it’s time for this blog’s picks for the key awards
Best actor will probably go to Joaquin Phoenix for Joker, but it should go to Adam Driver. It’s inevitable that Driver will win one day, however the academy usually makes people wait.
Renee Zelleger seems a shoe in for best actress and deservedly so.
Best director has some tough competition, but Sam Mendes’ technical achievement might just get the nod.
Best film should go to the clever Parasite, but it might have to do with the best foreign language film. The main gong may well go to Joker in all its white male rage glory. So this bureau can only offer who it would like to win: Little Women.
