8Us stars Lupita Nyong'o, Winston Duke, and Elisabeth Moss
Right out of the gate, we’re impressed with this stellar cast. Us is a reunion of sorts for Nyong’o and Duke, who co-starred in Black Panther. They play a married couple, as do Moss and actor Tim Heidecker. Both Nyong’o and Moss are awards darlings—Nyong’o won the Best Supporting
Actress Oscar for her role in 12 Years a Slave and Moss has picked up multiple awards for her work on The Handmaid’s Tale. Horror movies don’t typically generate serious awards buzz, but between the pedigree of Us’s stars and Jordan Peele’s deserved reputation as one of the best new filmmakers around, Us may be a serious contender come next awards season.
