Award show season is upon us, and it seems like almost every year we’re in the same boat of never even having seen or heard of many of the movies that are nominated for some of the most prestigious feature film awards. But that’s all about to change right now, because trust me when I say that these films are worth taking a weekend to binge and/or pay a visit to the theaters.
Last year, Jordan Peele’s smash hit thriller Get Out took the box office by storm, making the film the most profitable film of 2017 just on the heels of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
The film is based on a black photographer’s visit to his white girlfriend’s family’s home in what shocked many moviegoers with its twisted turn of events. It also tackles racism in America through smart satire and scenes filled with edge-of-your-seat suspense.
If you haven’t heard about one of the biggest sporting event controversies that went down back in 1994 just before the Winter Olympics, well, I, Tonya might just get you one step closer to all the inside scoop.
The film takes on the controversy between professional figure skaters Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding when many believed Tonya to sabotage Nancy’s career just before competing against each other in the Olympics by hiring a hitman to injure Nancy, but now, it’s Tonya’s turn to share her side of the story. The film has already taken home a Golden Globe for best supporting actress won by Allison Janney, and I have a feeling that’s not the last award it’ll be snagging this season.
Say it with me: Tom Hanks & Meryl Streep. When you put two actors like these ones together in a feature film, you’re bound to have created a literal masterpiece.
The two star together in The Post, directed by Steven Spielberg. It’s set in the ‘70s surrounding the Pentagon Papers drama for all you history buffs, and is already Best Picture-worthy, according to many outlets. Count us IN.
Another film on the horizon is The Shape of Water, set against cold-war paranoia, and is based on an emotional story centered around a custodian who can’t speak, and a fish-man from South America. Intrigued? Yeah, so are we. Sally Hawkins brings charm and heart to a film that is essentially a silent-movie role, and will undoubtedly get some major love come The Oscars.
We’ve heard the buzz around Saoirse Ronan’s leading role in Lady Bird, and for good reasons.
Written and directed by Greta Gerwig, the film is an endearing dramedy that focuses on a year in the life of a free-spirited “Lady Bird” who can’t wait to escape her Catholic school and overbearing mother. It already nabbed two Golden Globes this month, and will likely tack on many more this season.
If you’re anything like us, you’re probably wondering what the heck this “Three Billboards” film is all about – already having scored FOUR Golden Globes, the film is labeled as a dark comedy which combines black humor with tragedy in a story of a bad mother played by Frances McDormand, who holds local authorities accountable when she feels nothing is being done to solve her daughter’s murder.
I’ll say no more, so it looks like you’re just gonna have to see for yourself.
And finally, you may not have heard about Call Me By Your Name… until now, that is. This romance flick has been getting quite the award buzz, and is based out of an Italian countryside when a teenage boy develops a sexual awakening and a secret romance with his father’s graduate assistant. The film acquired three Golden Globe noms, one in particular for best actor, played by up-and-coming teen Timothee Chalamet, so be on the lookout, y’all!
