It won the 2019 Digital Publishing Award for best digital column in Canada.
Last year, three of the four acting Oscars went to non-white performers.
Voting for Oscar nominees ended last Tuesday, two days after the Golden Globes. "Don't worry", I told a group of folks who'd already rightfully given up.

She hasn't a chance this year - the prize will nearly certainly go to Dern - but it's nice to know that a septuagenarian isn't out of the game.

"Little Women" director Greta Gerwig was excluded from the all-male ensemble in the best director category, even though her film was nominated for best picture.More news: Canada business chief lashes Trump over Iran plane crash
Meanwhile, Bron Studios, the Vancouver production company headed by husband and wife Aaron and Brenda Gilbert, should prepare for a generous haul of statuettes on Oscar night, February 9, after receiving a total of 14 nominations for two of its films - Joker and Bombshell. On what planet is the screenplay for 1917 more deserving than The Farewell, Pain and Glory or Booksmart? This is still an institution that almost a century in has only given one woman and zero Black filmmakers a best director win and has still yet to ever give an openly LGBTQ actor (no Jodie Foster and Kevin Spacey do not retroactively count) an award, none of which will change this year. Not a good look for an awards show whose primary fanbase - whether they like or it not - does not look like the cast of The Irishman.
The 92nd Academy Awards are almost upon us, but before the awards show can actually be held, we need to know the nominees.
Maybe 2021 will be the year that the Academy finally joins us in the real world, where white men are not the only artists worthy of acclaim.More news: Lori Harvey Charged For October Hit & Run Incident
