The 91st Academy Awards 2019 seem to have come and gone, calling a wrap to yet another Hollywood self-congratulating award season and a relief from the gruelling promotional schedule for all the parties involved.
The Golden Globes perhaps no longer wish to be the forbearers of the award season, with this year’s awards seem to have muddled predictions somewhat.
Oscar Sunday is nearly upon us and with a Best Picture shortlist including coming-of-age stories (Call Me By Your Name, Lady Bird), racial politics (Get Out, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), World War Two (Darkest Hour, Dunkirk) and interspecies lovemaking (The Shape of Water), there’s a lot to discuss.
Every year, the British Academy of Television and Film Awards is a refreshingly British celebration of the year in film, with the spotlight on homegrown talent in addition to the familiar faces from across the pond.
It was only a matter of time before Neil Patrick Harris, star of How I Met Your Mother and multiple host of the Emmys and the Tonys, finally hosted the Oscars.
