Best Picture 2021

Personal ranking of the Best Picture nominees at the Academy Awards ceremony being hosted 25th April 2021.

I am not going to lie, this is a decidedly underwhelming year. Promising Young Woman remains the only Best Picture nominee that I’ve seen more than once.

It’s also the only nominee that my parents have seen, which is a handy personal barometer to use to get a sense of the awards’ reach and impact.
