Lisa Marie Presley was impressed with the biopic about her dad and predicted Austin Butler would win an Oscar for his performance.

Elvis Presley's daughter took to Instagram Saturday and shared a promotional poster for Baz Luhrmann's upcoming biopic "Elvis," starring Butler in the titular role. She accompanied it with a lengthy caption detailing her joy about the film and gushed over the director and actor involved in the production.

"I have seen Baz Luhrmann's movie 'Elvis' twice now, and let me tell you that it is nothing short of spectacular. Absolutely exquisite," she wrote praising Luhrmann's talent in helming the project.

According to Lisa Marie, the viewers will "feel and witness" the director's "pure love, care and respect for my father throughout this beautiful film." She also gave Butler's performance a thumbs up.

"Austin Butler channeled and embodied my father’s heart and soul beautifully," she continued. "In my humble opinion, his performance is unprecedented and FINALLY done accurately and respectfully. If he doesn’t get an Oscar for this, I will eat my own foot, haha."

Due to Presley's review of the film about her dad, many are looking forward to watching "Elvis." Several also agreed that Butler will probably get a nomination for portraying the legendary singer and actor.

"Awesome, I can't wait to see it, love me some Elvis," one wrote on Twitter.

"He's playing a real person so, of course, he will win. F--king Oscars!!" another commented, agreeing that Butler has a chance to win an Academy Award for playing Elvis Presley in the biopic.

"The Presley family is really hyping up Austin Butler‘s 'Elvis' performance. Usually, families get pissed and disappointed! Perhaps he gets an [O]scar nom," Norman D. Golden II tweeted.

"As God is my witness, if Austin Butler wins an Oscar for "Elvis," I will eat a pizza," Daniel Fienberg, chief television critic for The Hollywood Reporter, wrote.

In a press event, Butler shared why he was interested in playing the King of Rock and Roll. According to him, he wanted to "explore the humanity of somebody who has become the wallpaper of society in a way," People reported.

"He's such an icon and held to superhuman status," Butler continued. "To get to explore that for years and learn why he was the way that he was, it was such a joy that I could do that for the rest of my life probably."

"Elvis" will be released on June 24.
