If I Had an Oscar Ballot, 2020 Edition

This past movie year hasn’t exactly inspired much confidence, but the last few years haven’t exactly produced great films – honestly, “Shape of Water” and “Green Book” winning back-to-back Best Picture Oscars shows you that the voting process needs to be changed. (The ranking/preferred ballot system probably means everyone’s second- or third-favorite movie wins; alas, a complaint for another time).

That said, let’s dig in with what I, your fearless blogger, would nominate for Oscars in 2020. This year, I’m going to list what I would nominate, and each entry is ranked in my order of preference that it wins. Got it? Let’s go:
