The list of candidates is as follows:
“Borat Subvert Movement”
“Judah and the Black Messiah”
“Ma Rainey Black Black”
“One Night in Miami”
“Promising young lady”
“Sound of metal”
“Test of chicago 7”

The once-expected Oscar nomination for Lee and his lead actor, Delro lindo, Now appear to be long shots; The film is unlikely to make a best-picture lineup.
Another surprising exclusion: “The Father,” which certainly includes an Oscar-nominated performance Anthony Hopkins And Olivia Coleman. This can happen on best-picture bubbles, if the list of producers is any indication. Although the Producers Guild often leans towards expensive studio fare, it snubbed two of the only major films in the competition this year, Universal’s “News of the World” and Disney-Pixar’s “Soul.”
