We’re talking about two films this week which are popping up on many people’s best of the year lists… but will they get any love from the Academy when they announce the nominees for this year’s little golden statue award?
If there was any justice in the world, Adam Sandler will hear his name called for his role in the Safdie Brothers’ latest gritty New York crime drama, Uncut Gems.
And if you don’t know who Mati Diop is… just wait, cause you soon will. Her feature film debut, Atlantics, is on the shortlist for International Best Picture nominees. If you want to know just how good it is, you can find it streaming on Netflix.
