All The Films You'll Need To Name Drop This Coming Awards Season
By Katie Rosseinsky Posted on 31 Oct 2018
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, for Hollywood at least. Not Christmas, but the four or so months we fondly refer to as awards season which, after an autumn of buzz-worthy film festivals in Venice, Toronto and London (to name just a handful), gets into its stride around the time the clocks go back, when a clutch of new films chasing Oscars glory begin to arrive in the cinemas. Things then step up a gear come January, when the awards circuit becomes a grueling endurance test for hopeful actors, actresses, directors and writers as they trek from one red carpet to another. They’ll tick off the Golden Globes, the SAGs, the BAFTAs and finally, the Academy Awards (which will take place on 24th February 2019) - before starting the whole interminable process again a few months later at Cannes. It’s a hard life, we imagine.
So, what does this mean for film fans? Just when you’d finally got to grips with 2018’s crop of Oscar favourites (Lady Bird__, Get Out and I, Tonya, you’ll always have a place in our hearts), there’s now a whole new class of hopefuls that have already managed to generate buzz in critical circles, whether that’s because of a rapturous reception at one of the aforementioned festivals, a transformative lead performance, all-out box office domination or a mixture of the three, but with singing (we’re looking at you, Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga…) Luckily, as the nights draw in, it’s arguably the perfect time of year for cinema-going. Start planning your viewing schedule accordingly…
