The Avenue reviews the 2019 Nominees for Best Picture

On Sunday, Feb. 24, the 91st Academy Awards, an event that has been fraught with controversies for its past few iterations, will decide the most noteworthy films of 2018. After #OscarsSoWhite in 2015, the subsequent boycott of many artists in 2016, the “Moonlight” and “La La Land” blunder in 2017 and the hyper spotlight on the #MeToo and “Time’s Up” movements last year, the Oscars lacks a host this year for the first time in three decades.

Chadwick Boseman put on a phenomenal performance as Black Panther in the 2018 blockbuster.

“Black Panther”: The superhero we needed

“Black Panther” is one of Marvel’s successful films of 2018. The film brings the world of “Blank Panther” to life — allowing viewers to experience Wakanda with it’s incredible culture and futuristic technology. Perhaps more importantly, it gives black audiences the chance to finally see a powerful superhero who looks like them on the big screen and achieve roaring success.

The black-and-white choice for ‘Roma’ made the film even more beautiful without being overstimulating audiences.

Netflix’s ‘Roma’ gives the production company legitimacy in the art field

Shot in black-and-white and in panoramic style, “Roma” is a cinematic masterpiece that makes its ten Oscar nominations well deserved. Directed by Alfonso Cuarón, the Mexican director of “Gravity” (2013) and “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” (2004), “Roma” follows the story of Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), a live-in maid for a white, upper middle-class family in the Mexican city of Colonia Roma.

”The Proposal” is the first rom-com on this list, because Sandra Bullock gives an intriguing performance as a career-driven woman forced into a relationship for her immigration status, which is quite different than most romantic comedies and makes this film particularly hilarious.

Rom-coms for the most hilarious and romantic Valentine’s Day

It’s Valentine’s Day week and everyone is in the mood to add a little bit more love to their lives. Whether you’re in a relationship or not, romantic comedies are an integral part of our average media consumption. So, as you figure out how to spend time with the people that you care about the most, including yourself, take the time and watch a good movie or two about love and life.
