This year’s Oscars are less than a month away and with the nominations announced I decided to share who I think will win the golden statues this year. I will only be covering a few of the major categories. As of now, I have not seen these films nominated in acting categories: Bombshell, Harriet, Judy, Richard Jewell, and The Two Popes.
Here is a link for the full list of nominations, but I have listed the nominations for categories I am covering.
Let’s begin.Continue reading “2020 Oscar Predictions”
2019 has been over for a while now, but now that I’ve seen 1917 which is competing in the Oscars this year, I can finally release my Top 10 list. 2019 was truly a great year for film and I hope that 2020 and beyond will be even more diverse both in front of and behind the camera, and that we continue to support original films and new voices. Keep in mind, I cannot see every new movie released and there are some 2019 movies I have not reviewed.Continue reading “Top 10 of 2019”

2020 is year and with it comes another promising year of films. I’m particularly excited since there are a great number of women-led films both in front of and behind the camera in 2020. Since it’s early in the year, none of the smaller, independent films are really known until the Sundance Film Festival later this month, so this list will mainly be bigger films. I will also do a Top 10 of 2019 list, but that won’t be up until I have seen 1917, which is a major awards contender this year.
So here is what I’m most looking forward to at the moment for the upcoming year with some honorable mentions that go out to Godzilla vs. Kong, Eternals, and Bob’s Burgers who didn’t quite make the list.
