Oscars 2020: Taika Waititi and Roman Griffin Davis

One day I might stop posting and spamming about the Jojo Rabbit cast, but that is not today. As Taika Waititi won an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay he also directed and starred in the film bringing out an incredible performance from child actor Roman Griffin Davis! This photo is a truly lovely moment between director and the young actor, not forgetting the Oscar as well!

Top 10 – Best Films of 2019

2019 has been a very high quality year for film and I feel this has been the toughest list to put together in the whole ten years of Let’s Go The Movies. Which is certainly a very good and amazing thing for cinema and films. Not only have this years best come from cinema releases but Netflix have really come into the picture with some incredible films with amazing performances. With my list it might feel a little bit all over the place with some of the films that are on it due to UK release dates, but also take into consideration that I have also been lucky enough to see some previews of films as well.

My Cinema 2019 list – here
2019 Films overall – here

I had 22 films that were on my list for Best Films of 2019 and it has been very tough to knock that down to the 10 that have then made up this list. Just missing out (Brittany Runs a Marathon, Can You Ever Forgive Me?, Klaus, Judy, Crawl)

Final list . . .
