It’s not like we didn’t know it was coming. Awards season has been preparing us for the inevitable: Green Book as the 2019 Best Picture winner. America, and its almost comically disrespectful Black History Month of bad news, has been preparing us for this too. Since it won the People’s Choice Award at TIFF, Green Book has had a shot at becoming one of those Best Picture winners that is looked back on with disdain and bewilderment, like Crash or Driving Miss Daisy. Full Story

Back in September, Green Book won the audience award at TIFF. This set it up as an Oscar front-runner, and it seemed like an inevitable Best Picture nominee. It’s a middle-of-the-road movie about race made to make white people feel good, a la Driving Miss Daisy, The Blind Side, and The Help. Full Story

Viggo Mortensen was considered a strong contender for a Best Actor Oscar nomination for his performance in Green Book. Last week, however, at a Q&A following a screening, Viggo said the n-word. He apologized afterwards. Now Variety is asking if it will “doom his Oscar chances Full Story

It’s a one-person team, really. Bohemian Rhapsody continues to perform very well at the box office. Right now it’s approaching $400 million worldwide and could make as much as $500 globally by the end of its theatrical run. Despite the problems that many critics – including Sarah Full Story

Viggo Mortensen was the Middleburg Film Festival promoting Green Book this weekend. Green Book won the People’s Choice at TIFF last month. And Viggo is definitely a contender for Best Actor for his performance in the film, alongside Mahershala Ali. Ethan Hawke, meanwhile, was at the London Film Festival promoting a film he directed, Blaze. Full Story

Last Friday, it was quietly announced that Adam McKay’s film about Dick Cheney, starring Christian Bale, would be released on Christmas Day. Before then, the film didn’t even have a title. Now we know it’s Vice and we also know that, given the timing of the opening (Christmas Day almost always means an Oscar run), we have another contender. Full Story

Another award season entrant

There are TOO MANY MOVIES. TIFF keeps adding to their lineup—now mulleted medieval Chris Pine is opening the fest—and trailers keep dropping and it’s TOO MUCH. I’m dreading making my schedule because it will be impossible to see everything I want. Last year felt thin, but this year has already spat out a number of good-to-great movies and we haven’t even started the fall festivals yet. Full Story

Among the Best Actor nominees was the surprise inclusion of real-life Ghostbuster villain Viggo Mortensen, for Captain Fantastic. I didn’t care for the movie and if the Academy was going to use this nonsense year to pull out a little-seen performance from an offbeat movie, I wish they’d gone for Anton Yelchin in Green Room, but whatever. Full Story
