Westerns revived as ‘The Power of the Dog’ leads Oscar nods
"The Power of the Dog" is the frontrunner for the Oscars with 12 nominations, indicating a resurgence of the Western genre, which has been a cornerstone of Hollywood since its beginnings. Experts predict that the success of this movie, which is set in 1925 Montana and follows a story of revenge and masculinity, will likely lead to more Western-style films being produced. The Western, which typically features a cowboy or gunslinger in the old American West, has had its ups and downs in terms of popularity, but its combination of stunning scenery and classic themes of good and evil has often been too tempting for filmmakers to resist.0
