    The Favourite was less dark and more accessible than his other films and its submitted lead won a major award (the Volpi Cup) and was being obsessed over because of her casting in The Crown.

    The Favourite was also baitier.

    The Favourite was far less weird than The Lobster and Sacred Deer (though it was still very weird to most audiences). But for the Academy, I think it just struck the right balance between being weird/arthouse but still logical and actually grounded in historical reality.

    FYC:

    Picture: Nomadland
    Director: Chloe Zhao
    Leading Actress: Frances McDormand
    Leading Actor: Anthony Hopkins
    Supporting Actress: Youn Yuh-jung
    Supporting Actor: Daniel Kaluuya
    Adapted Screenplay: The Father
    Original Screenplay: Promising Young Woman

    Let’s be real, Sacred Deer should have at least been nominated for Picture, Cinematography, Director, Supporting Actor and Screenplay. It was easily better than most of the other nominees in any of those categories. The shot of the son collapsing in the hospital still gives me goosebumps. The Lobster is in my all time top 10 so this is another inexcusable snub for me although I like that it received a well deserved Screenplay nomination. But yeah, The Favourite is definitely his most baity film and even though I adore the performances by Farrell, Papoulia, Kidman and Keoghan in its predecessors, The Favourite might be his film with the most Oscar-y acting. Once The Favourite secured those three nominations along with the obvious design categories it was pretty much given that it would at least be considered for a Picture nomination.

    FYC:

    Lead Actor: Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round)

    Supporting Actress: Maria Bakalova (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm)

    Supporting Actor: Paul Raci (Sound of Metal)
