I like how they have a separate category for big budget and independent so the independents are guaranteed a win.

I saw LITTLE WOMEN Saturday afternoon. This young lady was definitely the most spirited "Amy" I've ever seen. She stole every scene she was in!

Parasite and JoJo Rabbit were by far my favorite films of the year so far. I still have a few left to see. I've heard such mixed things about Little Women, is it really good?

I loved JOJO RABBIT, too! I'm STILL waiting for PARASITE to play in a theater within 50miles of me.

LITTLE WOMEN was entertaining and very good some of the time (my opinion, of course.) The shifting back and forth from the film's present day to it's past was confusing at times (I can imagine it really being confusing to anyone who isn't familiar with the book or even previous adaptations.) I'm not sorry I went to see it, though.🙂

I wonder how many people have seen both Jojo Rabbit and A Hidden Life.  I've seen the second, but not the first.  They seem to have distinctly different approaches to the subject.

"Frozen II" has had the misfortune of competing with the fourth installment of the ultra-popular "Toy Story" series and the offbeat French animated film "I Lost My Body.  (pictured below). Of course, we're entering the guild phase of awards season, so it's entirely possible that "Frozen II" will do well in  animation and music categories.

Yes, you're right. TOY STORY 4 is much better, too. I think millions of little girls would disagree, though!

I wish I LOST MY BODY would make the rounds of the theaters. If it was an animated short, it would be shown in the Shorts Festival the weekend before the Oscars. The animated features, however, seem to get left out unless they are a Hollywood product.

It'll be interesting to see what wins at the Golden Globes tonight.
