Since its glitzy world premiere at the Venice film festival in September, Jane Campion’s moody Western ‘The Power of the Dog’ has been the film to beat.

Adapted from Thomas Savage’s novel about toxic masculinity in 1920s Montana, it earned the most Oscar nominations with 12, and racked up the most pre-Oscar award wins from Hollywood guilds and critics’ groups.

Combining Campion’s distinctive vision, a stellar cast led by Benedict Cumberbatch, an eerie psychological plot and gorgeous images shot in New Zealand, the film ticks many traditional best picture boxes.

But its slow pace and ambiguous meaning have left some voters cold — and with best picture decided by a preferential ballot which favors universally enjoyed movies, a dark horse could still unseat ‘The Power of the Dog’.
