The Low Down:

Cuarón’s domination of this season continued with bringing home the gold (and some additional hardware for his work as Roma‘s cinematographer). They didn’t love him or the film enough to award it Best Picture, so perhaps this and Best Foreign Language Film felt appropriate enough?

The Nominees:

  1. Alfonso Cuarón, Roma++++
  2. Spike Lee, BlacKKKlansman
  3. Adam McKay, Vice
  4. Yorgos Lanthimos, The Favourite
  5. Pawel Pawlikowski, Cold War
