Cannes Oscar Hopefuls Include ‘Elvis’, ‘Armageddon Time’ and ‘Top Gun: Maverick’

Clayton Davis The 75th Cannes Film Festival returns with international auteurs, Palme d’Or winning filmmakers, potential summer blockbusters, and many films that will, if everything breaks their way,  be campaigning for Oscar come the fall.In short, the competition lineup is loaded with promise.The track record for Palme d’Or winners going onto Oscar success has varied over the years. Over the past two decades, Roman Polanski’s “The Pianist” (2002), Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life” (2011), Michael Haneke’s “Amour” (2012) and Bong Joon-ho’s “Parasite” (2019) have received best picture nominations.

However, “Parasite” is one of only two Cannes winners that have matched with Oscar, with the other being “Marty” (1955). And yet, other Cannes winners have gone on to receive other nominations, such as Hirokazu Kore-media’s “Shoplifters” (2018) and Ruben Östlund’s “The Square” (2017), both of which have films playing in the this year’s fest with “Broker” and “Triangle of Sadness” respectively.

The former stars Sang Kang ho, hoping to make an impact after being snubbed for his turn as the scene-stealing patriarch in Joon-ho’s feature winner. Östlund’s film is the Swedish filmmaker’s English language debut with three-time Oscar-nominee Woody Harrelson.

In addition, the comedy series, which will drop its second season in the middle of Emmy nom voting, could make history for two of its guest actor comedy submissions — Nathan Lane and James Caverly.Lane could become the most nominated actor in the history of the guest actor comedy category (beginning in 1975), while Caverly will be the first deaf actor ever recognized.A likely frontrunner for writing and directing, particularly for “The Boy From 6B,” the critically acclaimed seventh episode of the inaugural season, will be a focused highlight that Hulu will put forth with the TV Academy.
