Since there have been so many movies which have come out the ones that have been nominated for the best motion picture of the year are Ford v Ferrari, The Irishman, Jojo Rabbit, Joker, Little Women, Marriage Story, 1917, Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood, and Parasite. Truthfully Parasite seems to be the one who could possibly win since the movie in its entirety was very well made according to critics.

Sarah Gomez a Sophmore was asked whether she had any movie that she would choose for the best motion picture of the ones mentioned above and she said, “Little women because it was produced by a woman and I’d like to see women be more recognized in the film industry since they aren’t often recognized.” She continued, “Plus it was actually a good movie.” Amy Khou Senior responded to the same question saying, “Probably Joker because it caused quite an upset with so many people.” She elaborated on her thoughts, saying that it was “because of the messages depicted. So much so that at certain points people were scared of going to the movies to watch it for fear of getting caught up in some sort of revolution.”

Hopefully whoever wins deserves the nomination and can celebrate in peace.
