Everyone’s (mostly everyone on here) favorite car movie of 2019 gets some deserved attention from the Academy.

It’s unlikely this movie will grab the best picture title (the category is STACKED this year), I can definitely see them earning the other three. They did a great job pleasing the enthusiasts with fairly accurate engine notes, tire squeals, and other car related things that we tend to pick out of movies (looking at you, F&F franchise). Note I said mostly accurate, because there were some things I caught. Such as the GT40 hitting 220 MPH on the front straight of the track.
Personally, I thought Bale should have at least gotten a nomination for best supporting actor. For a character as private as Ken Miles, he did a great job portraying him.
