Once Upon a Time In Hollywood Aspires For Oscar Nomination

The highly anticipated and 10th movie ever conceived by the creative mastermind of Quentin Tarantino finally premiered earlier this summer. In spite of the short period that passed since its first screening back at the end of July, many film critics have already begun to predict the movie’s potential for Oscar nomination.


Apart from the star-studded cast made up of Hollywood royalty including Leonardo DiCaprio, Al Pacino, Brad Pitt or Margot Robbie the movie plot depicts the golden are of 1969 Hollywood in its true essence. Notably, by featuring characters who were at the time part of the real Hollywood scene ads up to the movie’s authenticity.

However, while trying not to give out too much about the movie, some characters including those of Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio remain strictly fictional which in the end gave Tarantino more creative freedom in portraying the Hollywood of that time.

As it was expected from Tarantino, the plot consists of many intertwined storylines and clues that are not immediately given to the audience at the beginning of the movie.


According to visual effects supervisor Ian Hunter who was a part of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the movie has a great potential to win the Oscar nomination for Best Picture.

“I grew up in Los Angeles and the movie really captures what makes the city – and the industry – special.”

Judging by the movie’s opening weekend earnings of approximately $41 million and astonishing reviews, it is currently on a promising path to obtain in our belief definitely more than one Oscar nomination.
