Q&A: What kinds of movies get nominated for Oscars or win them?
Question by heiress: What kinds of movies get nominated for Oscars or win them?
I’m so curious, because it seems as is all of the “dull, dull, historical” films win them or get nominated for them. Please don’t get me incorrect, movies like “Crash,” “Pretty Woman,” “Erin Brokovich,” “Walk the Line,” and “Titanic” certainly deserve it, but why “Aviato,” “Sideways,” “Capote,” “Excellent Night and Excellent Luck,” “The Incredibles,” and “Brokeback Mountain.”
Answer by bartzturkeymom
The kinds of movies that typically get nominated have a message to tell — Life is Gorgeous, Chariots of Fire; or they depict an actor who has to transform themself to play a role — Capote, North Country, Monster Ball; or they are a compelling tale of a real person or time period — Gandhi, Place of Africa. They are usually films that have well written dialogue, gorgeous costumes, superb music, compelling characters and sometimes the plot twists like in Crash.
