Remaking Best Original Screenplay, 2000

In our eleventh pass of the Oscar nominees from 1997 through 2016, we take a look at the nominees for Best Original Screenplay. Each week, we’ll present a list of contenders from which you can select five to make up the Best Original Screenplay slate. There will be an “Other” option, but you can only use this once and you’ll have to specify your other in the comments. Now on to the game: Best Original Screenplay.

Synopsis:

From IMDb: “During the height of World War II, commander Stan and a courageous group of resistance fighters are given a suicide mission to deliver a stolen Nazi submarine filled with atomic uranium. Hunted down by Hitler’s army, the motley crew must outwit and outmaneuver relentless German destroyers and more powerful submarine killers which will stop at nothing to send the U-boat to the bottom of the ocean before it reaches safe shores in America.”

Trailer Rating: C+

SEE ALL TRAILERS BELOW
Review: In one week, I’ve seen two trailers for uninspired World War II-set films that have no idea how much they are mining material that has been done to absolute death. There’s little in this trailer to suggest something we haven’t seen before.

Oscar Prospects:

None.

Precursor: 22nd Costume Designers Guild Nominations (2019)

The biggest surprise omission here is Little Women, while something as generally tradition as The Irishman was ignored as was 1917. That said, this list doesn’t carry any real surprises as many of the top contenders are here and Disney has once again dominated with all five slots in the Fantasy category.

Precursor: 27th Cinema Audio Society Nominations (2019)

The biggest news here is the absence of 1917. War films are often thought to be major players with this group. That said, some other noteworthy snubs include everything Disney in the main category (no new Star Wars, no Avengers: Endgame, no live-action remakes) and Ad Astra. Surprisingly, four of my five current predictions are on this list. Is Joker really going to make it in over 1917? I wouldn’t count on it.

Precursor: 17th African American Critics Awards (2019)

The African American Film Critics Associaiton has announced its winners for 2019 and while they may predominantly select black winners, their awards don’t look terribly different from the mainstream, suggesting that diversity is finally spreading. No major surprises here, though this does pretty much tell us that Waves will not be manifesting as a dark horse contender at the Oscars.
