I couldn’t agree more with regards to George Mackay. I think he was overlooked but I think the industry finally took notice so he’ll be fine.
Same with Jessie Buckley. She’s superb in Wild Rose but I see good things coming her way.
Zack Gottasgen was great in Peanut Butter Falcon.
I understand why Emma Thomson didn’t get much buzz for Late Night because the movie was uneven but I personally thought it was her best performance. She was perfect in that film.February 5, 2020 at 1:17 pm #1203331618

I’m young and a woman with zero interest in war films. I won tickets to see a screening and was sure I wouldn’t just not enjoy 1917 but that I’d actively dislike it.
I was wrong. It resonated with me in a way a movie has not in years. George Mackay was so moving that I’m genuinely confused when people write that the movie is all technique and no heart.
It’s a beautiful story with excellent performances. Not at all a pro-war film.
I saw Parasite and I think it’s a great movie but for whatever reason 1917 was tops for me.January 11, 2020 at 6:17 am #1203275250
I feel like I need to speak up for George Mackay. I’m not a war movie fan. He sold that movie for me. He was so moving. His physicality and ability to act with few dialogue had me thinking about his performance for weeks.
I was lucky enough to see an early screeener mid December and I started paying attention to the Oscar race because of 1917 and George Mackay so I was a little confused as why he isn’t nominated for anything and is part of no nomination discussions.
I don’t expect to hear his name on Monday but I hope I do. It would be so deserved.
