The Grand Budapest Hotel

February 18, 2015

Through The 4th Wall

The Grand Budapest Hotel is up for nine awards at this year’s Academy Awards, the joint most nominations alongside Birdman, and yet it’s seen as something of a surprise package amongst the Best Picture candidates. The surprise is mainly due to the fact that it was released almost a year ago – just after last year’s awards, in fact – which goes against the usual studio policy of releasing their award contenders in the months immediately preceding the awards season.

This film also doesn’t fit the standard mould of an award contender. They are usually powerful human interest stories, biopics, beautifully shot artistic films or feature powerful acting performances, this film is its own wonderfully unique creation and cannot be considered what has become known as “Oscar Bait”. It is wholly different to many contenders down the years, and that makes it all the more interesting.
