In 2018, The Shape of Water led both the nomination and win count at the Academy Awards. It won some of the night’s top prizes, Best Picture and Best Director for Guillermo Del Toro, and it also took home prizes for original score and production design.
Triangle of Sadness will debut on Hulu on March 3. With a 72% Rotten Tomatoes score and a 63% Metacritic score, it’s not among the ten highest rated films coming to Hulu next month, but the 2022 release is nominated for three Academy Awards, including Best Picture.
The Rotten Tomatoes critics score, known as the Tomatometer, is the percentage of critics that have given the film a positive review. A movie with at least 60% positive reviews is given a fresh tomato symbol, while those with a score of less than 60% are given a splat symbol. Metacritic calculates a weighted average of critics’ reviews, assigning different weights to each critic and publication depending on importance or quality. Scores are displayed in green, yellow or red — indicating favorable, mixed or unfavorable reviews — and films with a score of at least 81% are designated as “must-see.” Both Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic track user ratings and allow users to write reviews, though these are displayed separately from critics’ scores.
