Top Gun is even nominated for best picture. It's not.
I think they like to nominate the big budget and big money makers to get people to tune in like your sports team making the finals.
The broader the films the more chance you get bigger ratings. The problem is that most of the time you know who the front runners are and this year it isn't Maverick or Avatar.
But they will probably win some effects categories. I think Maverick is for the Republican viewership. Old White manly-man showing the young woke guys and girls how it's done!
Maverick barely had a script. On another note, I think last year was a somewhat remarkable year for quality movies. I don't remember a year in which I thought highly--or somewhat highly--of so many: All Quiet on the Western Front, The Banshees of Inisherin, Tar, Babylon, Amsterdam, Empire of Light, and possibly others out there I haven't seen. It's encouraging to see.
