2021 Is a Year for Betting on Long Shots in Awards Race

Steven Gaydos Executive VP of ContentHaving followed the film awards season races closely for an even longer time than I’ve worked at Variety, I sometimes feel as if these decades of kudos scrutinizing have lulled this trade paper journo into thinking I’ve seen it all and I can’t really be surprised at any outcomes.

Which is hard for a guy who loves underdog tales, contrarian takes and heart-racing longshots. (Especially when the longshots have four legs, and they win, place and show.)So I watch with delight when a “Moonlight” or a “Parasite” happens, and I start to think that maybe the times they are a-changin’ as the man once said.
