Now that the Motion Picture Academy has had its say, you might want to take a couple of last chances to see what 2018 films won 2019 Oscars. Several of those films are playing at the Magic Lantern Theater.
"If Beale Street Could Talk": Although Barry Jenkins' follow-up to his 2016 Oscar winner "Moonlight" should have garnered more nominations, it did snare the Best Supporting Actress award for the deserving Regina King.
"The Favourite": Nominated for 10 awards, this Yorgos Lanthimos offering won but a single Oscar — but that one was a stunner, a Best Actress honor for Olivia Colman, who was almost apologetic for taking it from the presumed, uh, favorite in this category, Glenn Close.
"Roma": Also nominated for 10 Oscars, this Alfonso Cuarón film earned three awards — Best Foreign Language Film, Best Cinematography and Best Director (the latter two of which both went to Cuarón personally).
This is the Magic Lantern lineup through Thursday. And a particularly good lineup it is.
