Although he found stardom as a director for his films “Kick-Ass” and “X-Men: First Class,” it was the “Kingsman” franchise that made him a household name. “Argylle” is Vaughn’s latest entry into the spy genre, and it’s his most ambitious project to date.
Months have passed since my first set of predictions for the 2024 Academy Awards. As more and more films are being released, it’s becoming more clear what the academy is going to nominate for the best of film in 2023.

This coming Oscar season looks like it will be another monumental time at the Academy Awards. With films by Martin Scorsese, Christopher Nolan, Greta Gerwig and David Fincher being released, I thought it would be fun to look at what has the potential to be nominated for the 23 awards in the academy’s catalog. Here are my personal predictions for what will be nominated for the 2024 Academy Awards.
The 2023 Academy Awards was one of the most monumental Oscar ceremonies in years. Daniels’ “Everything Everywhere All at Once” won seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay. Michelle Yeoh became the first woman of Asian descent to win the Best Actress award, which was one of many achievements of the night.
The “Saw” series is one of the most notorious horror franchises of the 21st century. Although every movie in the franchise holds a poor rating on Rotten Tomatoes, they have garnered a massive fanbase due to the film’s famous gimmick: the traps. Each movie has its own unique set of traps and storylines, but some stand out more than the rest. With the tenth film in the franchise, “Saw X,” being released on Sept. 29, here is my personal ranking of the nine “Saw” films from worst to best.

Despite knowing little about the source material, I found a lot to appreciate from the film and I think others, regardless of experience with the Dungeons and Dragons game, will enjoy it too.

I will also discuss which films have a chance to beat, or upset the predicted winner.
The “Shrek” franchise has been going strong for over 20 years. According to The Numbers, it has grossed over $2 billion worldwide and garnered lots of critical praise. The last film to release from the “Shrek” franchise was “Puss in Boots,” released in 2011. It took 11 years to get a sequel, “Puss in Boots: The Last Wish” (2022), released. Does the sequel hold up after the long wait? The answer is simple: definitely.

Brendan Fraser was one of the most popular celebrities of 2022.
