I know that a few months ago, I published an article explaining why I boycott the Oscars every year. However I think this may soon change. This Friday saw the release of the second installment in the Trolls cinematic universe: Trolls: World Tour. I think I speak for everyone who has seen and will ever see the film, when I say that this movie nearly rocked my Trolls-themed Crocs off. (It didn’t though, don’t worry. I had on the sports strap.)
This brings me to my main point: here are my predictions for the 2021 Oscars. I think I speak for all the other Troll-heads out there when I say that 2021 is going to be our year. Trolls: World Tour doesn’t top its predecessor, but then again, it’s hard to top perfection.
Without further ado, here are my predictions so far for the 2021 Oscars:
Best Picture – Trolls: World Tour
Best Actor – Justin Timberlake (Branch): Trolls: World Tour
Best Actress – Anna Kendrick (Queen Poppy): Trolls: World Tour
Best Director – Walt Dohrn: Trolls: World Tour
Best Supporting Actress – Rachel Bloom (Queen Barb): Trolls: World Tour
Best Supporting Actor – Kenan Thompson (Tiny Diamond): Trolls: World Tour
Best Animated Feature – Do I even have to say this one?
Best Visual Effects – Sonic the Hedgehog (2020)
Best Original Song – “Just Sing” (Justin Timberlake, Anna Kendrick, Kelly Clarkson, Mary J. Blige, Anderson .Paak, Kenan Thompson): Trolls: World Tour
Most Glitter in a Single Scene – Trolls: World Tour
This might seem like overkill, but I mean it when I say that Trolls: World Tour is one of the best movies to come out of 2020. It was fantastic. Even my mother, who couldn’t honestly care less about the Trolls franchise, somewhat enjoyed it. You know what, when I think about it, I think my mom might have disliked the Trolls franchise before this weekend. She really wasn’t too happy with me ordering a $40 pair of Trolls-themed Crocs, and then using her cable bill to rent Trolls: World Tour, or with listening to my Trolls Original Soundtrack vinyl at max volume for a week straight, and then with me ordering the limited edition color press Trolls: World Tour soundtrack vinyl during our Easter bingo Zoom with the family. What I’m really getting at is that Trolls: World Tour was a great film.
Trolls: World Tour is currently available to rent on demand through pretty much wherever you can rent movies online. Do yourself a favor and put aside an hour and thirty minutes to treat yourself.
