Against the Crowd Blogathon by Dell on Movies is back, baby!! I’ve been participating in this fun blogathon since 2015 (unfortunately I missed 2018 completely) and I’m glad to do so again. I almost missed the deadline today but luckily I was in the right place at the right time. So if you are quick you can still make it too!
The 2021 Oscar nominees for Best Director are Lee Isaac Chung (Minari), Emerald Fennell (Promising Young Woman), David Fincher (Mank), Thomas Vinterberg (Another Round), and Chloé Zhao (Nomadland). As of this very moment when I haven’t really dwelled on who should win this category, I have no idea. I only know that while I adore Fincher’s work, Mank is not the movie that should bring him his first Oscar. Also, I’m conflicted to root for a female director here because this could be historic and amazing! But… I think… and I almost feel strange for saying this… I think I’m rooting for someone (slightly) surprising instead.
