The 2024 Academy Awards ceremony is fast approaching, with a list of nominees in the Best Picture category covering a variety of heavy topics such as the holocaust, the atomic bomb, domestic violence, patriarchal oppression, systematic indigenous murder, and more. Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and featuring performances from Ryan Gosling, the event is eagerly anticipated. Gosling is nominated for Best Supporting Actor in the film “Barbie,” directed by Greta Gerwig and starring Margot Robbie, who were notably excluded from the Best Director and Best Actress categories. The ceremony also marks the tenth anniversary of Aquarius John Travolta’s infamous name blunder and the public debut of Bradley Cooper and Gigi Hadid’s relationship.

If zodiac signs were winners in academy categories, Aries would take Best Live Action Short Film, Taurus Best Production Design, Gemini Best Adapted Screenplay, Cancer Best Sound, Leo Best Actor/Actress in a Lead Role, Virgo Best Editing, Capricorn Best Costume Design, Libra Best Cinematography, Scorpio Best Director, Sagittarius Best Hair and Makeup Styling, and Pisces Best Animated Short. These awards are based on the personality traits and characteristics associated with each zodiac sign.

The article then proceeds to match each zodiac sign with a Best Picture nominee. For example, the satire “American Fiction” is described as perfect for Leos due to its creativity and playfulness. “Anatomy of a Fall” is recommended for Virgos for its themes of isolation and potential murder, while “Barbie” represents fantasy and escape, aligning with Pisces. Each film is connected to the characteristics and traits of the respective zodiac sign in a playful and creative manner.

The lineup of Best Picture nominees includes films like “The Holdovers,” which delves into paternal dynamics with a classics professor caring for a troubled youth, fitting for Capricorn. “Killers of the Flower Moon” speaks to the greedy nature of Taurus through financial murders, while “Maestro” explores partnerships and love, reflecting Libra’s traits. “Oppenheimer” is suited for Aquarius, focusing on themes of shock and sudden change, and “Past Lives” appeals to Cancers with a story of nostalgia and lost love.

The relationship between each zodiac sign and a Best Picture nominee continues with “Poor Things,” associated with Sagittarius for its themes of freedom and optimism. “The Zone of Interest” captures Gemini’s duality by juxtaposing family life with horrors of a concentration camp. The article is written in a light-hearted and creative manner, using astrology and film categories to draw connections between the zodiac signs and the nominated films. Astrologer Reda Wigle adds her unique perspective by offering these fun pairings based on astrological traits and film themes.
