91st Academy Awards

Nominations Tue 22.Jan.19 • Awards Sun 24.Feb.19

Rich's comments: Once again, this year's Oscar nominations list looks like it was put together by committee rather than by voters. the skew is so populist that it's hard to believe that actual filmmakers dominate the membership: far, far too much love for A Star Is Born, Bohemian Rhapsody, Green Book, Black Panther and Vice - all solidly well-made films, but not in the same league as underrepresented or altogether missing movies like Leave No Trace, First Reformed, A Quiet Place, You Were Never Really Here or American Animals, to name a few. And indeed, most of the winners were audience favourites rather than artistic innovators.
