I am all about the women this year, particularly those involved in Unbelievable, Fleabag, Russian Doll and Killing Eve.

For some time now I've seen "Parasite" win awards and earn raves but it has not played here and I suspect it won't as a foreign language film. Has anyone in our community here viewed it?

It was running here for a week but I missed it. May have to check out other theatres.

ETA- Looks like I can see it tomorrow evening at the theatre near me.

As I mentioned in the movies thread, I don’t understand the hoopla about this movie. Usually I love watching top foreign language movies but not this one.

The Critics' Choice Awards nominees came out yesterday:

http://www.criticschoice.com/critics-choice-awards/

Interestingly the headline for the Critics' Choice TV awards was When They See Us leads with the most nominations with This Is Us and Schitt's Creek next most. And all three of those shows were not nominated for Golden Globes.
I like it that they have awards for young actors and for action films.

Third post in a row, but I had to announce the SAG awards nominations. Those are key to the acting awards.


I am so happy to see Scarlett Johansson get double nominations this year! I have always liked her acting but she was not getting award worthy roles. I really liked her in The Horse Whisperer, and she was just 14 (approx.) then.

Golden Globes are on January 5th. I am likely to miss them because I will be out of town, with family members who are not likely to be interested in watching.

Here are the predictions by ET. They sound quite reasonable but there are always some surprises during the actual ceremony.

Has anyone seen Harriet? I haven't had a chance yet, but the trailer looked good.
I went to see it this week. Thought it was really good and well acted. Other than Cynthia Erivo playing Harriet, Joe Alwyn playing Gideon Brodess stood out in that respect.

Thanks for the review. I will go see it if it is still running.

I'm going to add a list of these awards because I do so every year. They aren't the best indicator of Oscar, but I find them useful to see what the critics are champion (even though the National Board of Review aren't critics) and I find myself agreeing more with them that the Oscars even if I don't always.

'Parasite' is this year's 'Roma'. However, Roma had some positives. 'Parasite' has none. It is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Sad to see it winning so many awards. I found it utterly disgusting.

I really want to see Pain and Glory but it disappeared from the theatres too quickly. I hope they will bring it back.

I had never heard of the movie 'Diane'. Got to do some research on it.

Last year I saw all the short films and all the short animated films. They were really good. So this year I plan on seeing them all too.

Oscar probably will give it tons of nominations but not give it the big win. The voting academy’s tastes aren’t the same as the critics as evidenced by the big winners last year. They may agree in screenplay or some acting awards but that’s about it.

Why am I seeing some 2018 movies listed under ‘best 50 of 2019’? I noticed ‘The favourite’ and ‘if Beale street could talk’ on the list.

Some of last year's titles are in there because Sight & Sound is a British publication with international contributors where some 2018 films were not released in their country until 2019. It's kind of like how some foreign films become eligible for Oscars (outside of the Foreign Language Film category) and American critics' awards a year after they were released in their country because they were not released in the U.S. until that year.

Last year, an American movie, The Rider was actually nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for the 2017 calendar year but was not eligible for other awards until 2018 because for some reason, Film Independent (Spirit) decided to allow it to be eligible in 2017 when it only had festival showings rather than be actually distributed and released in theaters/streaming, which didn't happen until 2018. That's how The Rider won Best Film at Gothams the following year and The National Society of Film Critics gave it Best Film for 2018 (over Roma).

I’ve seen most of these movies win other awards but I’m still surprised that Little Women is ranking so high (I mean it placed second for Best Picture here and Gerwig beat the likes of Scorsese and Tarantino and Baumbach!) but I love it. I’m sure some of those who are obsessed with these awards like me are complaining about the “PC” choices especially with Gerwig considering how they reacted to Lady Bird winning so many of these critics awards. :rolleyes:

I love Quentin Tarantino films, but I feel like I was the only person who didn't love Once Upon A Time, and didn't think Brad Pitt was anything that spectacular in it.

With the Globes tonight, I'm looking forward to seeing how Jennifer Lopez will dress. She's got such interesting style, but will she go for the classic look (like she did just a few days ago when she won an award)?

I haven't seen many of the films up for awards this year, but I will say that I absolutely loved Knives Out, and love that Daniel Craig and Ana de Armas were nominated for Globes for their brilliant performances. (I hate that a random sweater Chris Evans wore for less than half the movie took so much media focus, though)

I haven't seen many of the films up for awards this year, but I will say that I absolutely loved Knives Out, and love that Daniel Craig and Ana de Armas were nominated for Globes for their brilliant performances. (I hate that a random sweater Chris Evans wore for less than half the movie took so much media focus, though)

I hated Once upon a time in Hollywood and I never liked Tarantino. I am glad that he didn’t win the Best Director. I hope to see the Sam Mendes movie soon.

The Globes were fairly predictable. The movies that critics loved and I hated, won. (Once upon a time... and Parasite).

Now I really must see Joker.

Glad that Renée Zellweger won in drama,but the musical/comedy category for women was really weak. Nothing against Akwafina but it was a rather weak field. She was ok in Farewell. That movie didn’t live up to my expectations but it was quite good.

I really wanted Jo Jo Rabbit to win something.

Golden Globes thread:

BAFTA nominations:

Joker led the pack with 11 nominations, closely followed by The Irishman (Martin Scorsese's 14th BAFTA nomination) and Once Upon a Time in...Hollywood (Quentin Tarantino's 11th BAFTA nom) with 10 each, and Sam Mendes' 1917 just behind with nine.
Elsewhere, BAFTA will likely face a headache after it emerged that this year's main acting categories failed to include a single person of color at the same time as no female filmmakers made it onto the directors' shortlist. ...
In terms of distributors, Netflix led the charge with 23 nominations, including 10 for The Irishman and five each for Marriage Story and The Two Popes, followed by Sony with 16, with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood accounting for 10.
...
The awards ceremony itself will take place at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Feb. 2.

The Producers Guild of America has revealed its nominees in the motion picture and television categories for its 31st Annual Producers Guild Awards; nominees include recent Golden Globe winners “1917,” “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood,” “Missing Link,” “Succession,” “Fleabag” and “Chernobyl.”
The PGA, which has about 8,200 members, has matched the Oscar for best picture in 21 of its 30 years, including “The Green Book” last year and “The Shape of Water” in 2018.
The PGA uses a preferential balloting system that’s similar to that employed by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The PGA and AMPAS both expanded their voting for the top film to 10 nominees in 2009. About three-quarters of the PGA’s Zanuck nominees wind up as Oscar best picture nominees.

I don't ever remember the Academy Awards being held that early in the calendar year - is there an official explanation?

Outside of some Brit-centric nominations and their anti-Denzel Washington bias, BAFTA has been a pretty good predictor of Oscar (as has the Australian counterpart) because BAFTA has a lot of overlap in membership with the Academy.

Opinion piece in The Guardian on how films with women's narratives struggle to get awards love:
Hollywood is still largely an old white boys' club.

I have to wonder why I saw films like 'The Godfather', 'Walking Tall' and gangster films as appealing when I was younger (though IIRC 'Walking Tall' appeal to me because I saw it as a movie about a rebel, and I was a rebel. There were no rebel female models for me at the time :(). Granted, I did see 'The Godfather' as part of a double feature with 'Love Story', an odd choice perhaps but I lived in a very small town and I guess the theater took movies as they came in (usually some time after their initial release).

There are so many films about women that merit recognition the films did not receive. One such is 'North Country' with Charlize Theron (2005). She works in a male-dominated mine, where she is harassed and assaulted. She goes on to lead the charge in putting forth the first class action suit for sexual discrimination (of something similar, I do not recall precisely) in America. This film has all the elements of Hollywood success as the story of an average person who takes on the establishment and wins. The one element missing - a central male character. :(

The film really resonated with me, as I worked in a mine in my home town one summer. It was only the first or second year when were allowed to work in the mine (1975 or so). Girly pictures and calendars were posted all over the place. I had a night shift, and there were two men shift with me. They called me all sort of names and sometimes would urinate right in front of me. I got past that, proud that I endured discrimination and stuck around to collect some very good paychecks.

Another women-centered film that I loved was 'Frozen River' with Melissa Leo. That one did at least receive some recognition.

These days, I prefer not to watch violet films about men with guns and gangsters. I doubt I'll watch a Scorsese film again (granted 'Age of Innocence' was wonderful and had an unusual focus for Scorsese). The last Scorsese I saw was 'Streets of New York' - may have the title wrong, as it was some time ago. It was just way too violent for me.
