Vote for your favorite Best Picture nominee (2023 Oscars)

Welcome to the 14th 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.

2021: The Trial Of The Chicago Seven (Nomadland)
2020: Once Upon A Time In Hollywood (Parasite)
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)

My favorite movie this year is Top Gun: Maverick. It wonít win BP but damn itís a fun movie!

Looking back over the previous years, with the exception of 2018, weíve all got some pretty good taste!

I figure the forum will split between Top Gun and Avatar. Mea culpa to the max!

Everything Everywhere All At Once was my favorite film I saw last year and one of my favorites of recent years. That got my vote.

I haven't seen Avatar, Elvis or Women Talking yet, but I have a really hard time believing any of them will dethrone Tar as my #1.

Again, haven't seen it, but I think you greatly overestimate Avatar's popularity.

Pick: EEAAO

Expectation: Tar or The Banshees Of Inisherin

Maverick and Avatar were decent. I don't think All Quiet on the Western Front has the momentum going in.

I know this isnít a ďpredict the winnerĒ thread but All Quiet on the Western Front is also nominated for Best International Film so Iím guessing itíll win in that category. Then Oscar voters can feel better about voting for something else as BP.

Triangle Of Sadness... TŃR very closely behind... The Banshees of Inisherin close to that.

Most of the nominees are great this year. 8 of my favorite/honorable mentions were nominated for Best Picture.

I've only seen 6 of the nominees. I wonder if AMC will do their showcases this year.

Looks like they're bringing back each film, 1/27-3\12, some as a $5 Fan Favs. They used to group the movies. Maybe they changed that due to the length of the movies. Some are pretty damn long.

I have seen shockingly few movies this year. Of the 2 I have seen I liked Avatar quite a bit more than Top Gun

Based on the early votes, it sure looks like I was wrong!

I've seen 5 of the 10, but plan to see the others, so I'll wait until then to vote.

All I'll say is that one of these absolutely doesn't belong on this list... and it's not Avatar.

Re: Vote for your favorite Best Picture nominee (2023 Oscars)

I'll wait to vote, as I have not seen many movies on this list.
Even though I'm tired of comic book movies. So far The Batman is my favorite movie from 2022

I'm also on the side that Elvis is overrated and at least for me was a chore to watch.

Added I liked the 3rd act of
Elvis by far the most. Austin Butler was tits(that's a good thing) and never had any idea who Colonel Tom Parker was before this movie and what a scumbag he was, surprised he lived to be almost 90 in real life the way he lived.
I also like learning that Elvis helps support his family and friends without blinking an eye if the movie is correct. Maybe could have been edited down and had directors cut available for disc?

Elvis - it's the movie Elvis fans always wanted, but never in a million years thought we would get. They show all aspects of his life, the good, the bad and the ugly. It's brought in a new generation of Fans.

Re: Vote for your favorite Best Picture nominee (2023 Oscars)

The Oscars has more refined and mature tastes than DVDTalk's imo. I only like OUATIH over the did nothing for me Parasite from DVDTalk... but of course my heart will always be with Team DVDTalk.
