The votes are in, and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Lady Bird are the best films of 2017. Well, according to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, anyway.

The two pictures took home Best Picture prizes at the 2018 Golden Globe awards ceremony tonight.

Lady Bird‘s win for Best Musical or Comedy was announced first. Earlier in the night, star Saoirse Ronan had picked up a Best Actress statue for her lead role in the movie.

Also nominated from the film were Greta Gerwig for Best Screenplay and Laurie Metcalf for Best Supporting Actress, but they lost out to Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri‘s Martin McDonagh and I, Tonya‘s Allison Janney, respectively.

Oddly, Gerwig was not up for Best Director. This year’s field in that category turned out to be all male, as presenter Natalie Portman pointed out.

Three Billboards‘ Best Drama victory was announced at the end of the night, and it was one of several for the film.

Martin McDonagh lost Best Director to The Shape of Water‘s Guillermo del Toro, as mentioned above, and composer Carter Burwell lost Best Original Score to The Shape of Water‘s Alexandre Desplat.

But McDonagh did win Best Screenplay, as mentioned above. Star Frances McDormand scored Best Actress, and star Sam Rockwell got Best Supporting Actor.

The Best Films of 2018 So Far

Published

on

The very best of 2018, from Black Panther rewriting the rules for superheroes, Gary Oldman going to war as Churchill, and Maxine Peake blazing her way through 70s sexism

All the Money in the World

“Raucous thriller about the real-life 1973 kidnapping of J Paul Gettys grandson, and the billionaires subsequent refusal to pay the ransom a film that became notorious in its own right after reshooting scenes featuring disgraced actor Kevin Spacey.

What we said: With the help of Plummers tremendous villain-autocrat performance, Ridley Scott gives us a very entertaining parable about money and what it cant buy.

Avengers: Infinity War

Third in the powerhouse Marvel series, bringing together a whole gallery of comic-book characters including Doctor Stranger, Iron Man and Black Panther for an epic showdown with supervillain Thanos.

What we said: Colossal, cataclysmic, delirious, preposterous and always surreally entertaining in the now well-established Marvel movie tradition.

Read the full review.

BPM: 120 Beats per Minute

Eighties-set account of the Act-Up protest movement in France, which took on the medical and political establishment over the Aids crisis with guerrilla campaigns and direct action.

What we said: A passionately acted ensemble movie [that] compellingly combines elegy, tragedy, urgency and a defiant euphoria.

Beast

Creepy, Jersey-set thriller starring Johnny Flynn as a poacher who may or may not be a serial murderer and Jessie Buckley as the unhappy young woman who falls in love with him.

What we said: Beast is a title which might appear to promise horror or melodrama and there is a little of both. But there is always something subtler going on.

Read the full review.

Black Panther

Director Ryan Cooglers film adaptation of Marvels comic book seamlessly combines action-adventure and superhero fantasy with questions of racial discrimination and power.

What we said: The intriguing thing about Black Panther is that it doesnt look like a superhero film more a wide-eyed fantasy romance: exciting, subversive and funny……”

Hundreds of fans gathered outside pizzeria featured in Saturday Night Fever 41 years ago to catch glimpse of and dress like the actor

“Forty-one years after strutting down a Brooklyn street, merrily swinging a paint can to the sound of the Bee Gees Stayin Alive, an older, less lithe John Travolta returned on Tuesday, to be honored for his services to the now-trendy New York City borough.

Hundreds of people gathered outside Lennys Pizza in Bensonhurst, south Brooklyn, to glimpse Travolta, who brought the neighborhood to national and international consciousness in Saturday Night Fever.

The 1977 film saw his character Tony Manero disco dance, conduct troubling relationships with women and occasionally engage in punch-ups. In the opening scene, Travolta orders two slices of pizza at Lennys before combining them in a double decker-type situation. The pizzeria claims Saturday Night Fever fans regularly order the same.

This is a great day, New York state senator Martin Golden who represents the Bensonhurst neighborhood and has submitted a 1,070-word legislative resolution commending Travolta for putting Brooklyn both on the map and in Americas hearts told the crowd.

A great day for John Travolta, a great day for his family, and a great day for Brooklyn.
