Lady Bird certainly deserved each of its five nominations. With a witty, funny script, Gerwig delivers an impressive directorial debut with excellent performances from Metcalf and Ronan. A hilarious and touching coming-of-age film, ripe with nostalgia, laughs, self-discovery and great characters.
I, Tonya is nothing if not refreshing; a uniquely styled biopic which breaks the fourth wall, is effortlessly entertaining and captivates the audience with flawless performances of very flawed characters. This one easily steals a gold medal.
The Shape of Water is an incredible, beautiful and sweet film that will touch the hearts of moviegoers worldwide. A cautionary tale with a performer of themes and messages that anyone can identify with. This will be a beloved classic, loved more and more with every re-watch. A magical, ‘adult fairytale’.
