JOJO RABBIT

Carthew Neal | Taika Waititi | Chelsea Winstanley

During World War II, a lonely German boy’s world is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother is hiding a young Jewish girl in their attic. Aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend Adolf Hitler, Jojo must confront his blind nationalism.

UNLIKELY

Not apart of the Big Three (“1917,” “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood,” and “Parasite”) there’s very little chance for “Jojo Rabbit” to win. However, it is a front-runner in the Best Adapted Screenplay category after winning the WGA Award. Scarlett Johansson is still in contention for the Best Actress in a Supporting Role, although she’ll have to upset Laura Dern. The rest of the categories its nominated for seem fairly unlikely.
