What are the best Oscar picture nominees this year?

The award season is upon us and that means the wide-open race for the Best Picture Award at the Oscars has officially begun! Sure, winners of the Best Actor and Actress awards will surely sashay their way up on stage but the true Hollywood star emerges when the name of the recipient of the best cinematic achievement of the year is called on to take the center stage. For 92 years and counting, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science has been bestowing the most prestigious award on whoever is worthy. Yet, do you really know how Oscar winners are determined?

Well, before we delve into the list of the Oscars best-picture nominees this year, why don't we talk about the nitty-gritty of it--people who actually vote for the Oscars--shall we? Upon its inception in 1927, the Academy was composed of just 26 members. Fast forward to today and you have a whopping number of approximately 5800 voters! The exponential growth of it just proves how far we've come, folks. If you would ask us who the members are, we don't really know. It's kind of a secret but not quite--some new members are announced by the Academy itself. Anyway, once the list of nominees is solidified, each member gets a final ballot. The final votes are then tallied and voila you have your official winner to be announced at the Oscars ceremony! And since we can only do so much about the result, we are offering you a list of the Best Picture nominees below where you can also cast your votes. Although it won't have a bearing on the official result, it's just pretty amazing to see our Binge community betting on who they are rooting for! Don't miss the upcoming 92nd Academy Awards!

DID YOU KNOW

The Academy Awards are colloquially known as the Oscars because Margaret Herrick, the Academy Award librarian in 1931, said that the now iconic statuette reminded her of her Uncle Oscar. Formally called the Academy Award of Merit, the statuette is a knight with a crusader’s sword, standing on a reel of film with five spokes that represent the actors, writers, directors, producers, and technicians. Herrick later said that she found it similar to Oscar, who was actually her cousin, because he was a “Texas farmer of dignity, austerity, and commanding authority.” The Academy made the name official in 1939, and in 2013, the Academy Awards was officially rebranded as The Oscars. From the first Academy Awards in 1929 up to the 90th in 2018, 3,072 Oscars have been awarded for 24 areas of artistic and technical merit. Walt Disney holds the record for most Oscars won by an individual, with 22 Oscars from 59 nominations. Katherine Hepburn is next with four Oscars under her belt, all for Best Actress. Meryl Streep is the most nominated actor, with 21 total nominations and 3 wins. Meanwhile, Leonardo DiCaprio, who was famous for having been eluded by the award for six nominations, finally won his first Oscar in 2016 for his role in the movie The Revenant.

    "More often than not, the winner of the Oscar best picture award also wins the best director and by far, I am thinking Joker would win because Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix surely gave justice to the movie and the character itself."
