I correctly guessed 15 out of the 24 categories, which is one of my better showings ever, I think.
We’ll be talking about Oscar nominees I, Tonya and Lady Bird, K-pop and superfandom, and a lot more.
Imelda Staunton and Celia Imrie are comedically opposite sisters, Margot Robbie is Tonya Harding, and more…
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri wins big…
Margot Robbie, Vicky Krieps, and Lesley Manville are not taking any crap from men.
The Shape of Water wins Best Film, and Best Director goes to Guillermo del Toro. Agnes Varda is Defying Age and Ageism, and Hollywood’s sexual tormentors are inducted in the AWFJ Hall of Shame.
Bold, tough, hugely entertaining. Like a new GoodFellas, except about a woman caught up in her own impudence and daring. Jessica Chastain is badass.
Get Out wins Best Film and Best Original Screenplay. Call Me by Your Name, Dunkirk, and Three Billboards also take two awards each.
A black comedy about domestic violence, parental abuse, and low self-esteem (and it works!), one that challenges our appreciation of how true based-on-fact might be.
