A contemporary artist, Maria Eskenasy, once said, "Not only can we create art. Art creates us." And on another level, we create history. Regardless of its form, be it painting, music, or dance, its power has never faltered to reflect life itself, as well as its never-ending complexities. And in this day and age, where we get to celebrate yet the most advanced form of art--the film--we are gracious to have such an amazing award-giving body, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Since its inception in 1929, the Hollywood film landscape has been redefined from being just a part of the showbusiness into something meaningful, something worthwhile. Not to mention the growing number of auteurs to whom we owe these Best Picture-nominated films that made a hallmark in the history of Oscars.
Hence, this list is only befitting these films' unprecedented impact on the silver screen industry and on the world outside of it. At the top of the list is the Marvel Cinematic Universe film Black Panther (2018) directed by Ryan Coogler. Earning its reputation of being the first-ever film to have a predominantly black cast, Black Panther was nominated for the Best Picture Award in 2019. Yet, a newcomer that has recently taken Hollywood and the rest of the world by storm is the South Korean film Parasite (2019) under the direction of Bong Joon-ho. As a certified auteur, Joon-ho's film is centered around the juxtaposition of two families from totally opposite social and economic classes. No wonder this drama-mystery film was labeled the first South Korean film to be nominated for the Oscars Best Picture Award! These two and the rest of the films here are a clear manifestation that the film industry as a whole is on the right track to producing more relevant and timely movies. Go through our list of the Best Picture Award-nominees and tell us what you think of them!
