Oscars 2016: Star Wars: The Force Awakens Becomes Favorite for Oscars

Star Wars is becoming a serious consideration to be included in the Oscar race for various categories including Best Picture award.

Disney missed out on the award season as it did not hold any pre-screenings for the press which was a good thing for keeping the movie in wraps but that meant that it missed out on the Golden Globes and the SAG awards and had they watched the movie, it would have received multiple nominations across the board but unfortunately it missed out. 

The award season hasn’t run out yet and the biggest award function of them all still has to announce the nominees. The Academy of Motion Picture and Science is currently voting and is set to announce the final nominees on January 14th.

So in between then and now, most fans and anyone who has watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens (TFA) is of the opinion that the movie should definitely be nominated for Oscars this coming season.

John Williams is an absolute favorite for creating the iconic score for the movie for Best Music category and many people have already placed their bets on it.

The Special Effects category has already shortlisted the movie which is just to make it into the final five and the movie’s spectacular visual effects and their merger with the CGI is a sure win is the opinions of many. 

People however are thinking above the belt for the actual direction and acting of the movie. J.J. Abrams is being given claim for doing justice to his childhood love.

The Direction category is being looked upon to give credit to Abrams and give him a place among the nominations. The acting on the part of all cast members, as many would agree, was better than any in the previous movies and gave a new meaning to the acting as a true cinematic piece rather than a space sci-fi thriller.

Harrison Ford, for his brilliant reprisal of Han Solo, is a definite finger-crossed nominee for the Best Supporting Actor category. Last but never the least, the biggest award of the night, Best Picture award is being looked upon to nominate the biggest movie phenomenon of the year to the category. 

The movie holds a record of being nominate and the first Star Wars movie picked up multiple Oscar nominations after its 1977 release. That included the Best Picture nomination as well and although it lost to Annie Hall, the movie took home seven golden statuettes in other categories.

The movie has already broken records worldwide by grossing $1 billion in 12 days and is already in contention with Avatar to become the highest grossing movie ever.

Speaking of Avatar, the James Cameron distant alien fantasy also received a Best Picture nominee in 2009 and it will only be fair that Star Wars, a movie that is already threatening to eclipse the hit movie should be a definite nominee for the Best Picture category, according to USAToday
