Oscar Predictions: A Journal for Jordan

The last time Denzel Washington was behind the camera, 2016’s Fences scored four Oscar nominations for Picture, Actor (Washington), Supporting Actress (Viola Davis), and Adapted Screenplay. Ms. Davis won the gold for her work. And while Denzel looks to be in line for ninth acting nod for The Tragedy of Macbeth, his latest directorial effort A Journal for Jordan is generating little awards ink.

Based on a memoir by Dana Canedy, the romantic drama is out in wide release today. Jordan stars Michael B. Jordan and Chante Adams and reviews aren’t glowing. The Rotten Tomatoes rating sits at just 43%.

Bottom line: unlike Fences, don’t look for Denzel’s Journal to swing any mentions from Academy voters. My Oscar Prediction posts for the films of 2021 will continue…
