FORD V FERRARI

Peter Chernin | Jenno Topping | James Mangold

Visionary auto designer Carroll Shelby and race car driver Ken Miles team up to build a high-performance race car for the Ford Motor Company, hoping to defy the odds and defeat the dominant Ferrari at the 1966 Le Mans.

UNLIKELY

As of right now, I have “Ford v Ferrari” winning two, possibly three, out of the four awards it’s nominated for. Yet, somehow, the experts place it dead last for the films in the Best Picture category. Other films, like “The Irishman” and “Little Women” I have winning zero awards and yet those are somehow ahead of “Ford v Ferrari.” That being said, there’s no way “Ford v Ferrari” wins Best Picture. The Big Three are currently “1917,” “Once Upon A Time In Hollywoood,” and “Parasite.”

FRONT-RUNNER

Looking across the Film Editing nominees, none of them stand out more than “Ford v Ferrari.” The pacing of this film and the way they create tension is miles above any of the other nominees. And the experts agree, placing it as the front-runner in the category. That seems like a pretty big win for a film that’s being touted as the last place choice for Best Picture. It’s biggest competition might be “Parasite” because of the love that is being anticipated for that film.

Right now, “1917” is the front-runner in both the sound categories. That being said, “Ford v Ferrari” is a close second in my opinion, and I even have a feeling that it will have its name on one of these sound awards, if not both. “Ford v Ferrari” relies more heavily on its sound design and much more often, whereas “1917,” at pivotal moments in the film relies on it, but not in the way or extent that “Ford v Ferrari” does.

POSSIBLE

Of the two sound categories “Ford v Ferrari” is nominated in, I believe it has a better chance of winning Sound Mixing, if it does in fact only have a chance of winning one. That being said, “1917” is the front-runner and the love for that film could easily overshadow “Ford v Ferrari,” especially with where it lands in the Best Picture race.
