2020 My Movie Thoughts Awards!!

Hey gang, so the Oscars were last night and, as weird as it may sound, they kinda nailed it.  The ceremony itself was fine, but I was thrilled by all the winners: my personal Top 5 Favorite Movies of 2019 (Rocketman, Marriage Story, Ford V Ferrari, Toy Story 4, and Little Women) ALL won at least one award and I couldn’t be more thrilled.  I also LOVE Parasite, 1917, Jojo Rabbit, and wish a huge congrats to all of the other winners.

BUT…every year, I do offer my PERSONAL awards (usually a little bit earlier than this…) honoring the Best Movies, Performances, Ensembles, etc. of the year.  Disclaimer: these awards are not actually worthy anything except bragging rights, I cannot provide any money or trophy, however if you want to provide ME with money or a trophy, I’ll gladly take it all for myself.

Now, let’s kick off the 2020 My Movie Thoughts Awards!!
