AVENGERS ENDGAME- will Oscar honor it?

"Hopefully not.Nothing aboutAvengers: Endgametranscends its genre.In fact,Endgameis that particular genre on steroids.LOTRmanaged to transcend its genre - Best Pic nods + Best Pic win.Harry Potterdidn't - no Best Pic nods.The Academy got it right with these two.Sometimes they get things right.And when it happens,it's a wonderful feeling."-Yavor

"I suspectEndgameis favored to get a Producers Guild nomination but a longshot for the equivalent Academy Award..."-Brevity

European Film Awards - Voting Now Open

by Nathaniel R

The Favourite may have lost most of its Oscar nominations but it can still win some EFAs!

The 32nd annual European Film Awards are happening this December 7th in Berlin.Voting for the People's Choice prize is now open.And -- "gay rights!"--The Favouritestill probably has another award ceremony to get through.Due to the EFA's non-calendar year eligibility as well as the complications of release patterns in multiple countries and the EFA's non-fussiness about dates you'll find that the people's choice options are a very strange mix this year from THREE calendar years worth of movies (2017-2019).

After the jump,that odd group as well as two longlists (to give you festival prioritizing help) before the nominations are announced in early November...

Nobody goes to the movies on Labor Day,do they?

In retrospect it was probably a bad idea to make a movie calledLabor Day(remember that 2013 Kate Winslet misfire?) since Labor Day weekend is one of those rare holidays where people mostly avoid the movies.Essentially it's the last "outdoor"weekend,and it's no longer hot enough to pine away for air conditioned storytelling.At any rate here is the quickie chart for the weekend.Were you an iconoclast who did go to the movies this weekend or were you thwarted by Hollywood's lack of desire to program anything between franchise blockbusters.Seriously this year feels like they're not even trying -- thank god awards season might rescue us...

Doc Corner: 'Honeyland'

ByGlenn Dunks

You know a movie is going to give you something when within the firsttwo minutes,it makes you bolt upright and exclaim "Oh wow!"to an empty room.The eyes pop and the eyebrows raise as you marvel at the sheer unexpectedness of what is on screen.In Tamara Kotevska and Ljubomir Stefanov'sHoneyland,the image in question is that of an aging beekeeper straddling precariously along a cliff-face to a hive hidden among the rocks.Surrounded by grey and brown,Hatidze Mutatova (who I assume is in her 50s?) reveals a wedge of golden honeycomb.The gold in the rocks.

It's a startling way to open a film from a purely logistical standpoint.It's also a visual that really clues the viewer into its subject's tenacity and sheer force of nature abilities as a cultivator and protector of bees – an animal,after all,that is vital to the existence on Earth of everyone from those of us in major metropolises to those,like Hatidze,in isolated,wind-swept,mountainous regions of Macedonia...
