SN: “The Force Awakens” role in the Oscars
We’re a little too late in posting this trailer, but good God we’ve probably contributed about 100 of the views.
Among a lot of the unseen films in the Oscar prediction world, there is still one major film that many prognosticators aren’t talking about, and that is Force Awakens
“Star Wars” and “Empire Strikes Back” both didn’t fare well with awards, but if “Force Awakens” is able to pull out a Metacritic score in the 70s or 80s it may be very likely that it will enter the expanded Best Picture category.
As usual we’ve had the movie sweeping the technical categories, but “Best Picture” and “Screenplay” are still shaky. Also what about the actors? We put Mark Hamill as a dark horse in our predictions, but anyone could really stand out.
A fair prediction is that “Force Awakens” will dethrone “Avatar” as the highest-grossing film of all time. We have our Thursday night tickets, (my Kylo Ren action figure is also in the mail), so we’ll see.
What do you think “Force Awakens'” role at the Oscars will be?
