March 12, 2023

VOTE: Austin Butler, ElvisBEST ACTRESSHow can I vote for [Everything Everywhere‘s] Michelle Yeoh when the movie didn’t make sense to me? Stephanie Hsu was fine [in Everything Everywhere], but the only thing I really liked about the whole movie was Jamie Lee [Curtis]. VOTE: The Quiet GirlBEST CINEMATOGRAPHYI obviously liked Elvis overall, but I felt like its cinematography was a bit TV-like. But I’m going to surprise you: I ended up voting for Bardo. There were some really great shots, like the pile of bodies and out in the desert.
