Oscar season is here, although the Academy Awards ceremony has been pushed up to April 25. This time of year most of the top contenders are being shown at Harbor Theater, so we plan to recommend best films of 2020 in the next few months, even though you'll have to see them on a smaller screen.
Watch for posts on films that may win Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Actress.
In mid-April we'll run a contest and let you choose your favorites. After the Academy Award ceremony, we'll announce those who got the most correct answers.
Top prizes (after we reopen) will be: 1st Prize - one large popcorn at movies you attend for three months; 2nd Prize - one large popcorn for movies you attend for two months; and 3rd Prize - one large popcorn for movies you attend for one month.
So start watching – hear are some possible winners in various categories: Best Picture: “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” - starring (the late) Chadwick Boseman and Viola Davis - Netflix; ”Mank” starring Gary Oldman - Netflix; “The Midnight Sky” starring George Clooney – Netflix; “Hamilton” - Disney Plus Channel; Best Foreign Film contender, “Collective” - watch on Magnolia; New Documentary: “My Octopus Teacher” - Netflix.
