Academy Award Update


Best Movies

The Academy awards ceremony is coming up. April 25th to be exact. Less than a month and there are eight best movies this year. So time is a wasting. It takes time to track down where you can see them for free.

The Academy is allowed to nominate ten but this year they settled on eight. They are:

  • The Father:  Anthony Hopkins as a senior citizen starting dementia.
  • Judas and The Black Messiah:  The story of the assassination of Fred Hampton, a Black Panther leader.
  • Mank: Gary Oldman playing the writer of the movie Citizen Kane
  • Minari:  A Korean family moves from the Bay Area to Arkansas to start a farm.
  • Nomadland:  A highly regarded movie with Frances McDormand about travelers in the US.
  • Promising Young Woman: Nothing more about this one, do not want to spoil it for you.
  • Sound of Metal: A rock music drummer loses his hearing.
  • The Trial of the Chicago 7: The title says it all.

And I can recommend others that should be watched:

  • Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom:  Boswick and Viola Davis
  • Mauritanian: Jody Foster at Gitmo Bay
  • Da 5 Bloods: Spike Lee and the Vietnam War

I have watched them on Netflix, VOD, HBO Max, Amazon Prime, etc. Enjoy.
