Oscar nominees 2021:See who could win big awards at the Oscars
The “One Night in Miami” director starts the show a bit politically (“If things had gone differently last week (with the Derek Chauvin trial), I might have changed heels for marching boots”), but then gets into how the movies have helped us over the last year pandemics. He implements all the masks and protocols that work to present the Oscars as a film and hints that the night will be a celebration of the “creative family of storytellers”.
The Grammy-winning musician starts the drums and then grabs the microphone to sing her nominated tune from “Judas and the Black Messiah.” Next to her stands a large band and masked dancers raising their fists a la Daniel Kaluuya as Hampton, the leader of the Black Panther party whose words are also celebrated during the performance.
The performer who beat Tony played Sam Cooke in “One Night in Miami” – and he played Aaron Burr in “Hamilton” – so you know he has some pipes. And the double Oscar nominee (for the song and supporting actor) kills him again in the pre-series by singing “Speak Now” from “Miami.” Hoping to get back here sooner rather than later to entertain the live Academy audience.
Next on the parade of nominees for the original songs was the tune of the best candidate for Aaron Sorkin’s painting “The Trial of Chicago 7.” British singer-songwriter Celeste sings, songwriting partner Daniel Pemberton plays the piano, and the return melody of the soul jumps.
Laura Pausini gets a small orchestra – plus legendary singer-songwriter Diane Warren on piano – for a performance nominated for the original song “Io Si” (from “The Life Ahead”). Maybe this is Warren’s Happy Night: She’s been nominated for 12 Oscars (returning to “Nothing Will Stop Us Now” from the 1987 film “Mannequin”), but she’s still looking for her first win.
“The Eurovision Song Contest: The Legend of the Fire Saga” was not good, but it gave us a nomination for the original song “Húsavík. “Swedish singer Molly Sandén recorded her performance before performing in the real Húsavík in Iceland, and if you don’t like her backup children’s choir in sweaters, you may not have a soul.
Usually women are the most glamorous on the carpet, but that’s what happens with the 2021 guy, from Leslie Odom Jr.’s gold tuxedo. to Colman Domingo’s pink suit to adorable Alan Kim rocking cold socks. See all the best looks in our red carpet gallery.
Davis, who plays the title blues singer of “Black Bottom Ma Rainey,” would be the first Black woman to win two acting categories if she wins in Best Actress. (She previously won 2017 for “Fences.”) However, there is no clear leader in her race, such as multiple Oscar winner Frances McDormand (“Nomadland”), Carey Mulligan (“Promising Young Woman”) and Andra Day (“United” States vs. Billie Holliday ”) picked up honors this season’s awards.
Most of the signs point to “yes”: After his acclaimed performance in Netflix’s “Black Bottom Ma Rainey,” Boseman is the favorite for best actor – and it would be only the third posthumous acting award in the history of the Oscars – “Father” thespian Anthony Hopkins stands as a spoiler.
Maybe Oscar passengers and voters just miss the trip, but Chloe Zhao’s travel “Nomadland” it appears to be in the pole position for the best picture. However, it faces competition from Aaron Sorkin courtroom drama “Chicago 7 Trial,” Korean family story “Threat” and a vengeful thriller “Promising young woman” with Carey Mulligan.
