They all have their merits and all break the "traditional" Western mold to some degree. But, I like Dances with Wolves too and would have to call it the most "traditional" of the bunch, even though you rooting for the Indians over the Calvary.

Hi Urb,

Could you address the typo that Jess pointed out? An extra word ("the") sneaked in there. : )

Potential 2020 Oscar Best Picture Western Nominees @ 92nd Academy Awards
(TOP 50) 2020 Oscar Predictions: Gold Derby Predicts the 92nd Academy Awards
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood 2019 Poster
Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood
(2019)
#2 @ 7.5 to 1 odds to win the 2020 Best Picture Oscar

No clear-cut old school Western movies seem destined for a 2020 Best Picture nomination. But Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood (2019) could be Quentin Tarantino's foray into the Neo-Western movie sub-genre. Films in this category reflect the traditions of the western film genre but are set in the contemporary, even urban, American West or frontiers beyond. The movie stake is both in utilizing elements and themes of a neo-western, as well as, the many tributes and obvious influences of the Western genre on the movie. The  resulting film has many calling it a Neo-Western, including the Hollywood Reporter, which wrote "In this neo-Western, it's not cowboys and bounty hunters who save the day, but filmmakers whose human flaws allow them not only redemption, but connection." While a little obvious than neo-western mainstays Brokeback Mountain (2005), No Country for Old Men (2007), and Hell or High Water (2016) seems to fit the bill.
