PGA nominees of the year are:

Black Panther
BlacKkKlansman
Bohemian Rhapsody
Crazy Rich Asians
The Favourite
Green Book
A Quiet Place
Roma
A Star is Born
Vice

Of these, I think all but CRA and A Quiet Place will make into the final lineup. Thereís still hope for If Beale Street Could Talk, but itíll have to pull a Phantom Thread style comeback.

The Casting Society of Americaís 34th Artios Awards nominations

Also, there are a lot of local critics circles that Iíve lost track of that have basically given Roma, Ethan Hawke, Regina King, and some other stuff a ton of awards.

The Rider takes the top prize at the National Society of Film Critics Awards

Kash, out of curiosity since I saw it the other day, you think Vice is gonna get nominated for best picture at the Oscars? I haven't kept up with awards season as much this year and I'm just curious since the critical reaction was pretty mixed but it seems to have done fairly well so far at other awards shows.

At this rate I think it probably will. Itís made it into a reasonable amount of important precursors (Criticís Choice, the Globes, and PGA), and I think it has enough goodwill from The Big Short to give it a boost. If Bohemian Rhapsodyís chances arenít dashed by its controversies then this probably wonít be affected all that much either.

What did you think of the movie? I was considering trying to see it on a matinee showing sometime but it hasnít been an imperative viewing.

Bohemian Rhapsody, the worst movie of the year, winning Best Picture is pretty funny.
Goodbye!

Is it really that bad? I was planning to skip it but my completionist streak may take precedence.

The DGA nominees are in, with the primary nominees being:

Bradley Cooper (A Star is Born)
Alfonso Cuarůn (Roma)
Spike Lee (BlacKkKlansman)
Peter Farrelly (Green Book)
Adam McKay (Vice)

The Debut Director nominees:

Bo Burnham (Eighth Grade)
Bradley Cooper (ASIB)
Carlos Lopez Estrada (Blindspotting)
Matthew Heineman (A Private War)
Boots Riley (Sorry to Bother You)


I think McKay will be replaced by Yorgos Lanthimos when the actual Oscar nominations roll around.

It's the exact kind of formulaic, uninteresting, by-the-numbers piece of garbage that you would expect.  Nothing about it works, not even Malek's performance.  It's as sanitized and safe as you get.  I hate everything that it represents.
Goodbye!

Roma wins the top prizes at the Critics Choice Awards, who have no shame in awarding three of the Best Actress fort runners to maintain their reputation for prescience

Green Book wins the PGA

I shouldnít make conclusions for a film I havenít seen, but Iím going to be bummed if Green Book takes home Best Picture  instead of Roma. Itíd be nice to see a foreign language art film win the top prize.
