Goodbye Mello Brick Road: Top Five Movies Nominated for Best Picture Since 2009

The Oscars are this Sunday and my sister, Nicole Mello, and I are talking about them! Ten years ago, they changed the amount of movies that can be nominated for Best Picture from five to ten after the snub of The Dark Knight was viewed as egregious. Now, the first comic book movie to reap the benefits of this rule change, Black Panther, has been nominated for Best Picture! Therefore, a year after we discussed the Wakanda-based superhero phenomenon, Nicole rejoins the show to discuss some of our favorite movies that have been nominated for the main award in that time.

My full predictions for the 91st Academy Awards can be read over on Saoirse Ronan Deserves an Oscar!

You can also hear me on Matt Zabita’s podcast, The X-S Press Podcast, where I am interviewed about my time working at Walt Disney World! Do it up!
