The mud hasn’t fairly settled on the Oscars nomination for pundits and cinephiles… I imply, I’m nonetheless reeling from the truth that my #1 movie of 2022, The Woman King was grossly missed. Not even a nomination for Viola Davis which I assumed would’ve been a shoo-in! In any case, you’ll be able to learn my gripes and delights concerning the noms right here should you haven’t already.

Per customary 12 months after 12 months, nominated movies usually get a lift following the announcement. I simply learn in the present day that Everything Everywhere All at Once and Elvis are returning to theaters once more weekend, despite the fact that Elvis is already out there to stream in HBO. Avatar: The Way of Water has been doing gangbusters even with none nomination, however I wouldn’t be shocked to see extra movies returning to cinemas, and I do hope individuals try smaller-budgeted films like Women Talking and Tár in addition to the larger ones.
