THE IRISHMAN

Martin Scorsese | Robert De Niro | Jane Rosenthal | Emma Tillinger Koskoff

As an old man, World War II vet Frank Sheeran reflects on his life as a hustler and mob hitman, working alongside many notorious figures, including Jimmy Hoffa, the subject of one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history.

What a year it is when we’re talking about a Martin Scorsese film being “unlikely” to win Best Picture. Top that off with a film that’s garnering ten nominations, at least as far as my projections, is “unlikely” to win all ten. I expect “The Irishman” to be completely shut out this year and that’s absolutely bonkers when you think of how prestigious Scorsese is. But it just goes to show you what kind of year we’ve had for movies. The one thing no one’s really talking about is the Netflix stigma, which feels non-existent this year. “The Irishman” will lose, not because it’s a Netflix film, but because there’s so much competition.
