If Beale Street Could Talk
Mary Poppins Returns
A Star Is Born
A rather big shock came from last nights Golden Globe awards with Bohemian Rhapsody taking the Best Picture award in Drama. Not something I was expecting at all, I have to say I am happy with the other winners!
Throughout 2018 I managed to catch up with 48 older films and have decided to put together a top 10 list out of those films. You will be probably be quite surprised that some of these films I did not see until recently as some quality films. Always good to set yourself a challenge to catch up. I am happy that I managed to get 48 first time watches of films that does not include new cinema releases. With the films I have chosen for my top 10 list I pretty much was left wondering why I had never seen the film before!
Here are the 10 films that have made my list (in no particular order) . . .
Here are the nominations for the 25th annual Screen Actor Guild Awards (SAG) for 2019 and the films from 2018 . . . As we build up very slowly towards awards season and the Oscars!

If Beale Street Could Talk
A Star Is Born
In Detroit Clarence a lonely pop culture geek marries call girl Alabama kills her pimp and steals cocaine, which leads to the mob trying to get it back as he attempts to sell it in Hollywood.
Continuing my good form of seeing the Oscar nominated films I am pleased to say that I have seen all five of the films for the nominated actresses in a supporting role. Another pretty strong category and with what everyone thinks will be a clear winner. Surely we are in for some surprises and people picking up the awards that are not so expected? Well we certainly have to hope so due to the fact that if everything is as widely predicted it will be rather boring. So I am going to have my last say on the actresses in a supporting role and pleased to say that I actually enjoyed all five of these films!
The nominations for the 2015 BAFTA awards have been announced this morning and i have to say I am pretty impressed with the choices. Some are probably a little bit of a shock but we must remember that a slight bias towards British actors and actresses is often shown with the BAFTAs not a bad thing in my opinion. Just showing that they appreciate our own talent. So far I have seen nearly all of the films, just a couple to catch up with. They come out over the next couple of weeks as well!
