The 91st Academy Awards – Winners!

Well…that’s it for another year. Another exhausting round of Oscar winners. Some amazing, some OK, and some just plain bad. The 91st Academy Awards have seemed to be the most exhausting with just a few films feeling worthy of even a nomination let alone an accolade. Despite this, the show must go on…

…which is apt because Bohemian Rhapsody went home with the most awards for Editing, Sound Mixing, Sound Editing, and Best Actor for Rami Malek. Hmmmm.  Many will be in dispute for its wins but Malek for Best Actor certainly seems justified somewhat. Green Book went home with the biggest gong – Best Picture and, again, that seems like a lot of derision and contention will come from that win.

Roma scooped up three awards for Best Foreign Film, Best Director, and Best Cinematography meaning Cuaron is going home with all the prizes as the most awarded individual. Black Panther won for Best Costuming, Best Production Design, and Best Score, the latter two awards being the first wins for a black artist for Ruth Carter and Hannah Beachler respectively. Best Documentary went to Free Solo naturally.

Our favourite awards go to Regina King for Best Supporting Actress for If Beale Street Could Talk. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse scooped up Best Animation which is….it is just absolutely genius.

Perhaps the biggest (and happiest) win goes to Olivia Colman for her performance in The Favourite and the absolute best speech of the night.

Independent Spirit Awards – 2019 Winners!

Let’s face it – we all feel like the Award seasons are shit and really cannot wait for the Academy Awards to be over.

But in the ray of light within the darkness of the season is the Independent Spirit Award which, up until recently, has just been the Academy Awards a day earlier. Now there seems to be a direct split with not one Best Director from the Academy selection having an Independent Spirit Award and a Best Picture category that looks like this.

Oh yeah, that’s the good shit right there.

Hosted by Aubrey Plaza, who proved superb in her delivery and wit, the Independent Spirit Award showcased some worthy winners. The big heavy awards went to Barry Jenkins and his incandescent If Beale Street Talk, walking away with Best Director and Best Feature Film. He used his time of stage to celebrate female directors, big up Lynne Ramsay, and basically geek out!

Richard E. Grant scooped up Best Supporting Actor, finally, showing that his pure unadulterated joy/conniving dastardly plan is working. Best Supporting Actress went to the Queen Regina King for Beale Street.

Glenn Close accepted her award for Best Actress with her dog which we should do more and more of. Bring your pets to Award Season seems like a better year than the pile of dog dodo we’ve had this year. Best Actor went to Ethan Hawke for which means most of film twitter could, for a while, retire this meme.

Other notable awards go to Joe Bini for his superb editing on Lynne Ramsay’s You Were Never Really Here. Bo Burnham scooped up the award for Best First Screenplay and Boots Riley won for Best First Feature for Sorry to Bother You. Nicole Holofcener and Jeff Whitty won for Best Screenplay for Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Don’t you just love the indies?

Usually we end this sort of coverage with a full list of winners. But seeing as you can find them here, we just want to share we you Shangela’s performance because it is a slice of fried gold. And by fried gold, we mean chicken nuggets.

The Souvenir – Brand New Trailer!

Joanna Hogg has been one of Britain’s gifted directors telling gorgeous, heartfelt stories.

She now returns with what could be her best work yet.

Starring Tilda Swinton and her daughter Honor Swinton Byrne, The Souvenir tells the story of a young film student who becomes attached to an untrustworthy suitor.

With high praise coming from film festivals such as Sundance and Berlinale, this looks to be an impressive movie. What do you think?


The Souvenir is out later this year. 

Shaft – Brand New Trailer!

Who’s the guy returning in yet another movie outing?

That’s right…SHAFT!

When his best friend dies, John Shaft Jr, an FBI cyber security expert enlists  the help of his of his father, legendary cop John Shaft II.

Starring Jessie T Usher, Smauel L. Jackson, and Richard Roundtree, this looks brilliantly ridiculous and we’re excited to see three generations of Shaft walk the streets of New York again. What do you think?


Shaft is out later this year! 

Long Shot – Brand New Trailer!

We do love Seth Rogen here and we’re even more excited to see him paired off with Charlize Theron.

The Long Shot revolves around a journalist who finds himself as an intergral cog to a woman’s quest to be the first female president.

This looks sweet and we think Rogan and Theron have bouts of chemistry just from the trailer. What do you think?


The Long Shot is out later this year!
