Art Directors Guild Nominations

Not my area of expertise but an opportunity to see how caught up I am on the shows in possible Oscar contention. So let’s play (once again) the Seen/Not Seen game. Your answers in the comments.

Period Feature Film
Mank – started, didn’t finish
Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom – Seen, really liked
Mulan – Not seen (but why do I think of this as fantasy rather than period feature)
News of the World – Not seen
Trial of the Chicago 7 – Seen, mostly liked


Fantasy Feature Film
Birds of Prey – Not seen
Pinocchio – Not seen (didn’t even know there was a new Pinocchio)
Tenet – Not seen
The Midnight Sky – Not seen

Sidenote: Hollywood needs to come through with Delroy Lindo’s nomination for Da 5 Bloods if the Oscars is to have any credibilty.
