Yes, folks, it will soon be that time of year when obscenely wealthy actors, script writers and directors will collect their Oscars and give little thank you speeches, strangely working in social commentary and/or Extinction Rebellion propaganda.
I know it's a huge back-slapping exercise that many people (including me) find off-putting.
But, there is one nomination that I've got my eye on and hope will win its category. Its nomination is for Best Cinematography and the film is The Lighthouse (2019), directed and co-written by Robert Eggers. I haven't seen it yet but it's on my 'to see list', as I really liked Eggers's previous (debut) film, The Witch (2016).
I'll definitely buy The Lighthouse when it comes out on DVD. I guess it could be sh1te, but I've heard some positive (non-spoiler) reviews.
