The Academy Award Nominations are In

I certainly go to enough movies especially since I have been retired.  I usually don't write about them in this journal, but I note them in Facebook.  Below is the list of films nominated for Best Picture.

Black Panther
Kevin Feige, Producer

Sean McKittrick, Jason Blum, Raymond Mansfield, Jordan Peele and Spike Lee, Producers

Bohemian Rhapsody
Graham King, Producer

The Favourite
Ceci Dempsey, Ed Guiney, Lee Magiday and Yorgos Lanthimos, Producers

Green Book
Jim Burke, Charles B. Wessler, Brian Currie, Peter Farrelly and Nick Vallelonga, Producers

Gabriela Rodríguez and Alfonso Cuarón, Producers

A Star Is Born
Bill Gerber, Bradley Cooper and Lynette Howell Taylor, Producers

Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Adam McKay and Kevin Messick, Producers

Of the 8 pictures nominated I saw:

  1. Bohemian Rhapsody
  2. Green Book
  3. A Star is Born
Of the 8 only Bohemian Rhapsody and A Star is Born was shown at the local multiplex.  The films that are artistically superior do not attract that many viewers and are not appealing to the owners of movie complexes.
