Can Star Wars: The Force Awakens Win an Oscar?
  • Is ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ an Oscar contender?

If the film even receives a Best Picture nomination it would be a huge victory.

The Oscars season is about to start and every single noteworthy film from Hollywood is being rounded up. In the midst of all the anticipation there is one question that requires attention. Is Star Wars: The Force Awakens Oscar worthy? 

Since its release, the reboot of the Star Wars franchise has created huge hype. Almost everyone was anticipating the release of the galactic cinematic experience.

Episode-7 in the Star Wars franchise is even being called the film of the decade, reported CinemaBlend. Even critics have immensely praised the film directed by JJ Abrams.

Before the award season begins we have to evaluate how the sequel plays into the Oscar play. Although the film seems like a strong contender to become a blockbuster, there is no guarantee it will win awards. 

For starts sequels do not usually make much of an impression at the Oscars. Only a few have been lucky to receive Oscars. Such as ‘The Godfather Part II’ and ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King’.

In case of ‘The Force Awakens’ even a nomination for the Best Picture seems like a huge victory. The American Film Institute has named ‘The Force Awakens’ as one of the 10 best films of 2015. It does not qualify the film as an Oscar contender. 

The most significant fact against ‘The Force Awakens’ is the fact it does not offer anything new. It does not break much new cinematic or narrative ground.

Although the film is a splendid reboot of a beloved franchise everyone already knows about the Star Wars world. Fingers crossed a Best Picture Nomination is still possible!
