0

GALECA: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics have announced their picks for Best Picture of the past year. According to many such bodies, the favorite of the award season The power of the dog won top honors, winning three of the most prestigious awards for Best Picture and Best Director and Screenplay for Jane Campion. Curiously, Campion’s film failed to get Best LGBTQ Film despite being nominated. This award went to the film about Danish refugees To run away who has won the most awards, largely by doubling down on categories like The power of the dog failed to do so, winning both Best Documentary and Best LGBTQ Documentary as well as Best LGBTQ Film and Best Animated Film.

Other Best Picture subcategories won awards for drive my car as Best Foreign Language Film and Thoughtful Vintage Melodrama by Rebecca Hall Who passed as best unknown film, in which he triumphed The Green Knight, Baby Shiva, Mass and Zolawho have regularly been excluded from this year’s grand prix despite their universal fame. Who passed was also nominated for Best Screenplay and both Best Performance and Best Supporting Performance for its stars Tessa Thompson and Ruth Negga. This last award went to favorite Ariana DeBose for her performance as Anita in West Side Storyas did the Rising Star award, while in a pleasant piece of symmetry, co-star Rita Moreno took home the honorary Timeless Star award.

Similar honorary awards went to Pedro Almodovar, who won both Film Trailblazer and Wilde Artist – a category in which he incongruously competed against Lil Nas X – while his latest film Parallel mothers was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film and Best Cinematic Performance. Despite the sheer chaos that the Best Actor race has been this year, Kristen Stewart won Best Performance for spencercompleting the female sweep of the awards’ non-gender specific acting categories. spencerThe only other nomination was for Jonny Greenwood’s score, a category it lost to Lin Manuel-Miranda’s adaptation of Jonathan Larson’s musical. tick, tick… BOOM!

The most visually striking somewhat nebulously titled film went to Dunes, continuing its sweep of this year’s microelement prices. Missing few wins was genderfluid body horror Titanium, The worst person in the world and Massall of which were nominated in multiple categories without getting any of the top spots, while one movie that might just want it was Ridley Scott’s detective epic Gucci Housewho won the backhand compliment from Campiest Flick, for which he beat musical puppet Annette, old, clever and Cruel.
