Vote for your favorite Best Picture nominee. (2020 Oscars)

Welcome to the 11th annual DVDTalk Best Picture Oscar Poll!

Once again let's see how far apart we are from the Oscar voters. Keep in mind that this is a poll for our favorite movies and not an attempt to predict the actual Oscar winner.

Iím not voting yet because I still need to see some of these, but I must say that this yearís field is one of the strongest weíve had in years.

Previous DVDTalk poll winners and (Oscar winners):

2019: BlacKkKlansman (Green Book)
2018: The Shape of Water (The Shape of Water)
2017: Hell or High Water (Moonlight)
2016: Mad Max: Fury Road (Spotlight)
2015: The Grand Budapest Hotel (Birdman)
2014: Gravity (12 Years A Slave)
2013: Django Unchained (Argo)
2012: Tree Of Life (The Artist)
2011: The Social Network (The King's Speech)
2010: Inglorious Basterds (The Hurt Locker)

1917 for me (and hopefully for voters too). I think it's a toss-up right now between 1917, The Irishman, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (all three great films). Joker has ZERO chance of winning Best Picture.

Going to see 1917 this weekend and hopefully can still catch Jojo Rabbit and Ford v Ferrari in the theater. I've seen Irishman, Joker, OUATIH and Marriage Story. All good films but none scream Best Picture to me. No interest in Little Women. May catch Parasite on Blu-ray. I'm guessing 1917 will be my pick since I love Mendes.

Re: Vote for your favorite Best Picture nominee. (2020 Oscars)

Very good year for film - I've seen 6 of the 9 nominees which is a lot better than I've usually managed by the time nominations come out. Parasite, Irishman and Once Upon A Time all neck and neck for me, but I'm giving it to Parasite for this poll. Joker being there is kind of a farce, which I guess is the point.

I've seen them all, but I voted for The Irishman.
That, Once Upon a Time or 1917 winning is fine by me.

I’ll have to wait til the 28th and the 4th to see Parasite & Jojo.

Seeing Little Women tomorrow.

FVF won’t be available in time.

That leaves me with 5 that were watched:

Re: Vote for your favorite Best Picture nominee. (2020 Oscars)

Iíve seen more of this yearís Best Picture nominees than I have in a while. Iíve seen: Ford v Ferrari, Joker, Little Women, and Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood. Still want to watch The Irishman at some point.

Of the ones Iíve seen Iíll agree that Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood seems likeliest to win. Going with that for now but could potentially see it going to The Irishman or 1917.

Yeah, this has been a great movie year. Seen all but Little Women. Hard choice.

IMO, if Irishman was a full theater release and not Netflix, there wouldn't even be a real conversation on which would win. It's the best picture of the year but the awards aren't mature enough to give it to a streaming service.

I think you're right about Netflix. The Academy probably isn't giving BP to what is primarily a streaming movie...too many voters with traditional studio loyalties.

To me, it's either ONCE UPON A TIME...IN HOLLYWOOD or LITTLE WOMEN. I've seen the Tarantino twice (on the big screen) and recently purchased the Blu-ray. I may have to see LITTLE WOMEN again also. My instinct is to side with LITTLE WOMEN in order to counter my pro-Tarantino bias.

It's really worth your time. I love that story and this is the best it's been on the screen, period.

As for voting, I want to see if I can take in at least a couple more before Oscar Night. I'm around halfway there. For now, I may actually have to go with Little Women. I had such a good time!

Of what I've seen in that group, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.

But my favorite movie of 2019 (that I've seen) is, for now, Uncut Gems.

Once Upon for me, even though haven’t seen many, but don’t think it will win.

Re: Vote for your favorite Best Picture nominee. (2020 Oscars)

Iím surprised Iíve only seen two of the BP nominees, The Irishman and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. I loved them both but would give the edge to OUaTiH. Itís the first movie Iíve seen in ages that had me still thinking about it days later.

I hope to catch up on at least a few more of those nominees before the ceremony, and most likely the rest after.

Re: Vote for your favorite Best Picture nominee. (2020 Oscars)

I've seen 7 of 9. Little Women and Jojo Rabbit are the ones I have left. I had tickets to see Little Women this past weekend, but plans fell through. I hope to see it in the next week or so. I don't think I'll get to Jojo Rabbit anytime soon, but I've already decided it's not good, so I'm not too worried about it. Until I see Little Women I won't vote, but so far OUATIH and Parasite are easily the top two for me out of this crop with OUATIH being my favorite. I haven't had a chance to revisit Parasite since theaters though, so we'll see if that changes anything.

Movies from that era have never interested me, no matter the talent.

Re: Vote for your favorite Best Picture nominee. (2020 Oscars)

Thanks to my local AMC's crappy approach to showing films, I've only seen three of the nine. (I know, two are streaming.) Since I have only seen three, I will refrain from voting at this point.

Seen: Joker, Little Women, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
Want to see: Jojo Rabbit, Parasite, 1917
No real desire to see (not to say I won't): The Irishman, Ford v. Ferrari
Will see: Marriage Story

From what I have seen, I would say Little Women was my favorite, OUATIH was the best made, and Joker was the best spectacle.

I've seen 5 of the 9. Out of all of them, my favorite would have to be 1917. Spectacular film making and an exciting film as well.

JoJo Rabbit went to Decatur (Forsyth) at the end of the year for 10pm showings. Thankfully, I was on vacation. It was a private screening in a theater set to 80 degrees with the film improperly formatted to the screen. Loved the movie though.
