Yes it's that time of year again when the winter is upon us and the days turn short , In the age of the druids this was the time the Dark Gods came out and fear , suspicion and superstition walked across the land , where you could not trust your neighbor not to stab you in the back....in other words the perfect time for awards season ! :roll:

And we start with Academy news, Last week the Governors awards were handed out (because they moved them) , usually we wouldn't cover this but what the hell , the recipients for this years awards were

Lina Wertmuller
Geena Davis
Wes Studi
and
David Lynch

More chaos caused by this years Oscars being the earliest ever is that the Annual Oscar Nominees Lunch, the big pre Oscar event has had to be moved .

The big news today however is the changing of the rules when it comes to best film in a foreign language. Now the category will be known as Best International film and instead of a committee it will be now voted on by all eligible academy members, ( starting this year which is already causing havoc with it's two week earlier deadline ) which means not only more films to be watched by those academy members but a whole new world of "for your consideration" publicity problems for Films that are nominated.

Meanwhile the kickoff proper to the season will be the Hollywood film awards which will be held Sunday,Although kinda vacuous ( yes I know that's the globes job) they may be a pointer for who may be the big winners later this season. Now winners of this are announced in advance ( the awards themselves are a " come up and collect your prize moment" ) but what is annoying is that they announce winners day by day until Sunday, so instead of printing a constant dribble of names I am going to wait until Monday before we go over the full list of winners.

Are British films international films? It sounds like the Americans think that they invented English.

Kang , I think the question should be what does this mean for films not in the English language category, because what the heck does the term best international film mean. Under the new rules this also covers animation and Documentaries, so films that before were in the animation and Documentary sections can also be here.

Anyway the first "big" awards , the Hollywood film awards were held last night. Now as I said last week , this is usually about as reliable as the Globes. Heck the awards are a "come get your award" moment as the winners are announced over the week before...I think in the hope that if someone wins they will turn up, anyway there are some interesting developments here to discuss, first though, here are the winners.

Charlize Theron

Hollywood Actor Award:
Antonio Banderas, Pain and Glory

Production Design:
Ra Vincent, Jojo Rabbit

Hmmm now usually you do kinda ignore the Hollywood film awards but in among the noise we might be seeing the first signs of the early frontrunners (remember it's early November) although the field has not fully formed yet. But it's more interesting now than it was last year.
Antonio Banderas took his award for Pain and Glory now everyone has been praising this performance since Cannes in May the length of time is probably against him as is the fact that is is a foreign Language film, but then again It didn't stop Jean Dujardin when he took home the Oscar for the Artist. But remember last years award winner was Hugh Jackman for the Favourite?!?!??!

The three and a half hour (three and a half hours? what is this Lawrence of Arabia) The Irishman is getting a lot of talk but will the fact it's a netflix film play against it? Because it took the Producer award (this awards version of Best picture) Again though remember last years award went to First Man which quickly disappear

Renee Zwellegger took home the award for Judy but again it's early days and I suspect this could be the performance that will fade away over the weeks. (although last years award went to Glenn Close and she stayed in the running up to the night of the Oscars.

Parasite, I suspect we will be seeing more of this awards season.

Of the rest, Breakout awards rarely get much further and it is the Hollywood awards , still a little too early to start proclaiming certainties except that JoJo Rabbit and Ford V Ferrari featured as winners , Mangold taking Best Director, these are the two films that have been talked about as being Oscar favourites with a potential to dominate Awards season. Remember Green book only took home a Screen play and an ensemble award last year at these awards ...btw note they dropped the ensemble award this year.

Gotham's suffer from being so early in the season, but with so many Best Picture's being exhibited in Toronto last year's nominations identified "The Favorite" & "Beale Street Could Talk". Unfortunately they gave the award to "The Rider" which was probably the first and last award it picked up

This shows why the Oscars might have been better to change the rules of the International category rather than just the name. Other than the UK (whose films do get shown in the US) it leaves other English speaking countries as neither domestic nor international.

The International film argument continues with the Academy being forced to clarify with a slightly snarky statement “We changed the title of the award, but made it clear the rules remain the same.” This will die down but on the bbc today programme one film maker pointed out that this was an "american view of the world" and asked why Nigeria whose main language is English will be punished while another country who use French will not. why change the title but not the rule.

In other News Roland Emmerich will receive the visionary award at the visual effects awards in January.

Well the awards continue to be doled out and this weekend it was the people's choice awards and the critics choice documentary awards....now I'm going to ignore peoples choice as that is a popularity contest which I strongly suspect has a lot (and I mean a lot ) of studio Interference Example Film of the Year was Avengers Endgame but film drama of the year was After ( I know pretty unforgettable right? Wait whaddya mean you never heard of it?!!)

Anyway here are the winners of the Critics Choice awards for Documentary

Apollo 11 (Neon)

Steven Bognar and Julia Reichert, American Factory (Netflix)
Peter Jackson, They Shall Not Grow Old (Warner Bros.)

Bruce Springsteen, narrator
Bruce Springsteen, writer

BEST FIRST DOCUMENTARY FEATURE
Tamara Kotevska and Ljubomir Stefanov, Honeyland (Neon)

BEST ARCHIVAL DOCUMENTARY
Apollo 11 (Neon)

BEST BIOGRAPHICAL DOCUMENTARY

BEST POLITICAL DOCUMENTARY

MOST INNOVATIVE DOCUMENTARY
They Shall Not Grow Old (Warner Bros.)

BEST SHORT DOCUMENTARY
Period. End of Sentence. (Netflix)
Director: Rayka Zehtabchi. Producers: Melissa Berton, Garrett K. Schiff and Lisa Taback

MOST COMPELLING LIVING SUBJECTS OF A DOCUMENTARY

Dr. Amani Ballor – The Cave (National Geographic)
David Crosby – David Crosby: Remember My Name (Sony Pictures Classics)
Tracy Edwards – Maiden (Sony Pictures Classics)
Imelda Marcos – The Kingmaker (Showtime)

Linda Ronstadt – Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice (Greenwich)

Apollo 11 looks likely to feature for the awards season in the documentary category...don't think they shall not grow old will qualify ( unsure as it was released in 2017!)

A very interesting article on how the Oscars moving up two weeks has not only shortened the awards season but put a cat amongst the pigeons for the other awards ceremonies. now the oscars go back to the end of february supposedly next year and 2021 but if the move forward is a success this year than are they really going to stay there?

BAFTA news, Graham Norton has been announced as the host for next February's BAFTAS , he will be replacing Joanna Lumley who's disastrous hosting ( Not her fault but the team of writers who wrote the gags) led to the Guardian asking the question was she the worst host in the history of awards?

Bombshell will be receiving the Stanley Kramer Award at the Producers Guild of America awards in January, The Kramer award honors a “production, producer or other individuals whose achievement or contribution illuminates and raises public awareness of important social issues.”

James Mangold will be presented with the Cinema Audio Society Filmmaker Award at its 56th Annual CAS Awards on Jan. 25.

Jennifer Lopez will receive the Spotlight Award from the 31st annual Palm Springs International Film Festival for her performance in Hustlers. What is interesting about this is the award has been a guide to Oscar Nominations with every winner going on to receive an academy award nomination the same year.

A heart warming story

https://deadline.com/2019/11/paris-thea ... 202794519/

Until you realise what netflix is playing at see they now own two theatres. One in New York and more importantly One in Los Angeles, to qualify for the Oscar, a feature film must run seven days consecutively , three times a day in The Los Angles county area. Netflix have just ensured they must be considered in future for Oscar Nominations.

PARASITE Bong Joon-ho, Jan Young-Hwan, Moon Yang-kwon, Sin-ae Kwak, Han Jin Won

Any surprises? Well the The British Independents usually show who is more likely to dominate the BAFTAS than say the Oscars and the sure fire favourite from this list would be the The Personal History of David Copperfield, which I still expect to do well but failure to take the bigger awards outside of Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor means it's not a sure bet to do well at BAFTA. Expect For Sama to pop up after this performance, taking both best picture and documentary, however with PARASITE winning Best International film , this means that its chances of Nomination at the Academy Awards must surely be rising.
Things will get now start to get interesting , with the compressed Awards season this year, the early December Lull will not be happening as the first big awards of the season the Golden Globes ( I know it's the globes but it's somehow considered Important) just over a month away!

Have to admit the animated award holds no Interest for me this year as it is incredibly average with mostly sequels that are weaker than the originals and a film that has managed to offend half of south east asia!

The Animation Category used to be interesting as Animators chose the Nominees and so there were always things like "The Red Turtle" included along with Pixar and Dreamworks

Now the category is opened to the whole Academy I dread that interesting animation will be drowned out by the likes of Dreamworks with something like "Shrek 6", visually impressive but not interesting from an animation view and Universal can buy a nomination by ensuring every Academy member gets a copy

Though to be fair to the Academy, last year they did choose "Into the Spiderverse" over "Incredibles 2" (which I've just realized I've still not seen)

The Problem with the Board is timing..
Unless there is a shock I think this is the only time Tarantino is going to feature in awards season
Again I am seeing FOR SAMA , this bodes well after the Independent awards.
I am not calling it yet BUT it looks like PARASITE has to be the front runner for the major foreign film awards at this point
While Judy continues the build up with best actress, are we looking at a shock nomination coming down the line for Sandler and best actor.
Two films not seen here are 1917 (except for Deakins) and JOKER. I think from the early talk Deakins is going to dominate the cinematography awards and no love for the Joker? But then again this is the Board of Review, as Dave said excellent taste but even if you look at the list of winners last year , rarely accurate.

The AFI announced it's films of the year today

AFI Motion Pictures of the Year

1917
Universal

THE FAREWELL
A24

THE IRISHMAN
Netflix

JOJO RABBIT
Fox Searchlight

JOKER
Warner Bros

KNIVES OUT
Lionsgate

LITTLE WOMEN
Sony

MARRIAGE STORY
Netflix

ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD
Sony

RICHARD JEWELL
Warner Bros

Special Award

PARASITE
Neon

This list I believe is far more accurate when considering the films that will duke it out for the awards ( although personally puzzled Knives out was included but not Ford Vs Ferrari) However I think we can almost surely confirm Parasite will sweep the the foreign language awards as the AFI gave it a special award for work outside the American cinema criteria.
