Elvis was pure entertainment. Was it perfect? No, but I really hope it can get a popcorn slot in the Best Picture race if it continues to do well at the box office. If Bohemian Rhapsody can, and people were up in arms over House of Gucci missing out on such a slot, Elvis certainly deserves it.
Austin Butler should be an absolute shoe-in for embodying such a well known person without ever it feeling like mimicry or parody (unlike a certain Mr. Malek).
