      Recapping the very best of our Best Picture nominees

      With all the big names at the front of the 2020 Oscar race, it’s hard to say for sure who’ll come out on top. This is one of the closest Best Picture races we’ve seen in a while now and I wouldn’t place any bets on it too soon. Tarantino and Scorcese already looked...
