Joker” goes into the awards as the most nominated film with 11 bids including Best Picture, though two other films appear to be the ones duking it out for the win: “1917,” which won Producers Guild, Directors Guild and BAFTA Awards, and “Parasite,” which was honored by the Screen Actors Guild and Writers Guild. Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice champ “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is also a major contender, while “The Irishman” joins them among the most recognized films of the year with 10 bids. Rounding out the category are “Marriage Story,” “Little Women” and “Ford v Ferrari.” Might we be underestimating any of those?
