#LegoMovie2 is another superkinetic romp through a billion pop culture references - most of which, amazingly, are clever. Better songs and a more complex, equally well worked-out plot than the first one, too.

Some things to consider before the 91st Academy Awards ceremony, which begins Sunday, February 24, 2019 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC:
 
The Directors Guild of America will present its annual awards on Saturday night, and the big question is whether another member of "The Three Amigos" will take home the prize for feature filmmaking excellence.
 
The odds are that it will happen. The trio of Mexican-born filmmakers and friends -- Alfonso Cuarón, Alejandro G. Iñárritu and Guillermo del Toro -- has dominated the DGA Awards during the past five years.
 
Cuarón is the likely winner for his Spanish-language film "Roma." If he picks up the award, it will be the fifth win in six years for one of the filmmakers from Mexico. The only other person to win the award during this period: Damien Chazelle for the 2016 musical "La La Land."
 
By the way, every DGA Award winner since Cuarón's previous win went on to receive the Academy Award for Best Director.

"Black Panther," one of the biggest critical and commercial successes of 2018, dominated the 19th annual Black Reel Awards, held on Thursday night.. The Marvel film won 10 of its record 17 nominations, including the awards for Outstanding Motion Picture and Outstanding Director (Ryan Coogler). 

The film's star Chadwick Boseman won Outstanding Actor honors over Michael B. Jordan of "Creed II." But Jordan received the Outstanding Supporting Actor award for his performance in "Black Panther" as the villainous Erik "Killmonger" Stevens (pictured below with Boseman).

"If Beale Street Could Talk," the drama based on the 1974 novel by James Baldwin, won four awards, including Outstanding Actress (Kiki Layne) and Outstanding Supporting Actress (Regina King).

Boots Riley won three awards for his debut film "Sorry to Bother You": Outstanding Screenplay, Outstanding Emerging Director and Outstanding First Screenplay.
