On a special bonus episode of Cinemaholics, we pick our own winners for the 2020 Oscars ceremony. Inspired by the Siskel and Ebert classic format, we go through the nominees of almost every category and explain our favorites.
2019 was filled with era-defining blockbusters, emotionally compact dramas, and just about every other type of exciting feature in between. Many of these films were true gems, but others might’ve gotten a little lost in the shuffle of weekly big screen releases and an onslaught of new content championed by burgeoning streaming services. Despite all the chaos, 29 of our contributors were able to pinpoint their absolute favorite releases of the year.
We have a bad feeling about this episode. This week, Jon and Will return from their holiday break to catch up on the biggest December releases you may have already seen. From far away galaxy of The Rise of Skywalker to the even more alien city in Uncut Gems and Bombshell (New York), this is an episode you don’t want to miss.
It’s the most cinematic time of the year…for the cinemaholics, at least! Jon and Will discuss the films they’re most excited about watching from now until the end of February, along with some dark horse picks that have them more curious than ever about the upcoming winter season.
