Oscar Predictions: What’s Love Got to Do with It?

What’s Love Got to Do with It? is not a remake of the Tina Turner biopic nearly three decades after the original. Instead it’s a rom com about arranged marriage from Shekhar Kapur, best known for directing Cate Blanchett to two Oscar nominations for Elizabeth (1998) and its follow-up The Golden Age (2007). Lily James, Shazad Latif, Emma Thompson, and Taj Atwal are among the cast.

The film premiered at Toronto to a middle of the road reaction with 67% currently on Rotten Tomatoes. At the moment, Love is slated for a UK opening in January and it’s not clear if an awards qualifying run is happening for 2022.

I don’t think it matters. This might’ve been a pic that could make waves at the Globes in the Musical/Comedy races, but even that seems like a stretch. My Oscar Prediction posts will continue…
