Ford v Ferrari Movie Nominated for Best Picture Oscar
Christian Bale as Ken Miles
Christian Bale as Ken Miles
The Academy Awards' nominations were announced this morning in Los Angeles, and Ford v Ferrari, as had been expected, was chosen in several categories. The movie is up for Best Picture in a field of nine nominees, among them The Irishman and Once upon a Time in Hollywood. Its three other nominations are for film editing, sound editing, and sound mixing.

Ford v Ferrari tells the story of an upstart American team going up against the Ferrari juggernaut and emerging victorious. It has been critically praised for its re-creation of three races: the 1966 24 Hours of Daytona, the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans, and a fictitious race at Willow Springs Raceway in California that establishes the relationship between the main characters, race-team leader Carroll Shelby (played by Matt Damon) and ace driver Ken Miles (Christian Bale). Neither of those actors got Oscar nominations; in an awards ceremony held last week, Bale had been nominated for a Golden Globe as Best Actor in a Motion Picture (Drama), but he lost to Joaquin Phoenix for Joker.
