    Ford V Ferrari according to may Hollywood insiders, critics and odd makers stands a very good chance of Oscar nominations for Damon and Bale in addition for Best Picture. It is one of the best films of the year and regardless of knowledge or interest in motorsports has a story that anyone will find riveting. It’s no surprise to me that it was #1 at the box-office in addition to. critical success. I suggest that audiences see it in IMAX especially for the climax of the picture alone.
