Tuesday Movie Memo: Hey Academy, Consider Guardians Of The Galaxy For The Oscars
Very few of us might have guessed it going into the 2014 movie year, but at the end of the summer, James Gunnís Guardians of the Galaxy is the yearís biggest hit. The biggest. As in, no movie has earned more money in 2014 than Guardians of the Galaxy. Itís a powerhouse. Itís our leader. But is this just the beginning?
As we transition from the summer season to the fall, our minds start to drift away from blockbusters like Guardians and on to the annual awards race. But why do they have to exist separately? Canít we keep talking about Guardians of the Galaxy as we talk about Oscar contenders? Because, I argue, if Marvel and Disney play their cards right, then James Gunnís movie can contend for Oscars early next year. How? We discuss in the Tuesday Movie Memo.
We have been so happy to cover James Gunnís spectacular Guardians of the Galaxy all summer. Over the duration, we have interviewed the cast, reviewed the film, discussed how it works for families, and now weíre anxious to cover it through the Oscar race. Does it have a shot? Weigh in with your thoughts below!
