It’s Academy Awards season, movie buffs! This is a time to re-watch (or watch for the first time) the movies that have been nominated for the most prestige award in film. Who has been nominated this year?
In the year 2022, Tom Hanks starred in Elvis as Colonel Tom Parker, in Pinocchio as Geppetto, and as Otto Anderson in A Man Called Otto. Unfortunately, as brilliant as Hanks is in these roles, the actor is not among the nominees at the upcoming Academy Awards. The film Elvis did receive a lot of praise, including eight Oscar nominations. But these are for Austin Butler for Best Actor in a Leading Role, and Best Picture, among other. Guillermo Del Toro’s Pinocchio is also nominated for Best Animated Feature Film.
