Which movie should win Best Picture at Oscars 2019 and why?

1 0
Roma is great movie and will win the oscar. Early 1970s was great in Mexico
Bohemian Rhapsody should win the best picture oscar. This movie showed us that the Queen and the Freddy Mercury was best of all times.
I would say Bohemian Rhapsody. I really am a big fan of Freddy Mercury and Queen. It tells the tale of one of the biggest rock band of all time.
Vice , if not just for Christian Bale 's performance alone, completely transformed into Dick Cheney
Black Panther, i know it's a marvel movie super hero type thing, but it was still the most entertaining movie out of the ones nominated.
The film Rome should be the winner of OSCAR, since it has been awarded in other festivals as best foreign film and it has really been a great movie that deserves to win this award.
Aquaman, because i love arthur curry :V
Black Panther because I was a big step for African American actors.
  • Black Panther:  The Marvel hit has a tough battle at the Oscars with the Academy's aversion to superhero films. That being said, Gravity and The Shape of Water were winners, and like Green Book and BlacKkKlansman, Black Panther tackles current issues such as race and prejudice.
  • BlacKkKlansman : Director Spike Lee has a history of being snubbed by the Oscars, and if the controversy surrounding Green Book catches up to it, Lee might be in with a chance for BlacKkKlansman.
But if the Oscars does another Driving Miss Daisy, it'll pick feel-good odd couple dramedy over Lee's politically-charged film. While Bruce
Beresford's film won best picture, Lee's controversial 1989 film Do the Right Thing about racial tension in Brooklyn missed out on best film and
best director Oscar nominations, despite its influence and critical acclaim.
Even if BlacKkKlansman isn't the wild card that takes the best picture gong, it's at least earned Lee his first Oscars best director nod. Long time
  • Green Book:  What would hold Roma back and what elevates Green Book, is the general rule of thumb that films with a best film editing nod have a shot at best picture (Birdman is one of the exceptions to this rule). Roma does not have a nomination in the category, but Green Book, The Favourite, BlacKkKlansman, Bohemian Rhapsody and Vice do.
Also propelling Green Book is its people's choice award win at the Toronto International Film Festival. However, the film's good will, including a
Golden Globe for best picture -- musical or comedy, has been marred by arguments it's just another white saviour film a la The Blind Side. Then
there's Viggo Mortensen's "N-word" interview, Vallelonga's Islamophobic tweet controversy and a resurfaced article from the '90s about director
Peter Farrelly having a way with flashing people. Not to mention Farrelly (whose other credits include There's Something About Mary and Shallow
Hal) being snubbed in the best director category.
