Kumail Nanjiani introduces this section reminding us that there was ONE difference from the GGs. His sweet, smart film “The Big Sick” won Best Comedy over “Lady Bird.” He didn’t phrase it like that, however, and graciously thanked the Critics. Nobody knows how hard we work.
Gary Oldman once again wins Best Actor for “Darkest Hour” for playing Winston Churchill. He slavishly thanks his director Joe Wright , who he forgot on Sunday night.
Frances McDormand ONCE AGAIN wins Best Actress in a Drama and she, like co-star Sam Rockwell, is NOT there to accept her award. But for sure, she’ll be there on Sunday night for the SAGs. You better believe it. They both will.They are quickly becoming their own Awards juggernaut.
So no, not everybody shows up for this show. How embarrassing.“Shape of Water” wins Best Film! Now THAT’S different. They all look shocked. They were all there and they all piled onstage. Sally Hawkins and Octavia Spenser, too.
So this gives del Toro a huge lift for Best Director. Maybe no one from “Three Billboards” was there, because they knew they weren’t winning at the end?
Biggest shock “Lady Bird” got NOTHING!?!?!?!? NOTHING!?!?
Ditto, also nada for “The Post.”
Sooo this a big wake-up call for “Lady Bird.” HMMMM….
