Ride for Human Rights

The moon still was visible at sunrise over Ocean Cove.  After a long chat with our new hotelier friends Tim and Richard—they taught us a lot about life and work in this part of California—we hit the road under a cloudless sky. The Pacific was a startling deep blue. Headwinds were strong, the hillls were […]

GoldDerby
“The Favourite” came out on top in one way at the 17th Annual Gold Derby Film Awards, while “Roma” was the big winner in another. “The Favourite” received the most awards when thousands of Gold Derby users picked the winners, but it was “Roma” that came away with Best Picture. Watch us announce all 22 categories in the webcast above, and scroll down for the complete list of nominees and winners. “The Favourite” had a field-leading 12 nominations at these awards, and it came away with five victories: Best Actress (Olivia Colman), Best Original Screenplay, Best Ensemble, Best Costume Design and Best Production Design. Colman’s wins for Best Actress and Best Ensemble are her first victories from Gold Derby, but she was already a three-time contender for her work on TV. We nominated her for her leading role in “Broadchurch” (2014) and for supporting turns in “The Night Manager” (2016) and “Fleabag” (2017). [pmc-related-link href=”https://pages.email.goldderby.com/signup/” type=”SIGN UP” target=”_self”]for Gold Derby’s free newsletter with latest predictions[/pmc-related-link] But despite that impressive haul of nominations and wins for the offbeat British comedy, top honors went to Mexico. “Roma” claimed Best Picture, Best Director (Alfonso Cuaron), Best Cinematography (also Cuaron) and Best Foreign Language Film (also Cuaron), bringing it a total of four awards. Cuaron was the biggest individual winner at these awards with those four prizes, bringing him to a career total of six awards. He previously won Best Director and Best Film Editing for “Gravity” (2013). That makes Cuaron our first double winner for Best Director since Peter Jackson went back-to-back for “The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers” (2002) and “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” (2003). Only two other films won multiple prizes at these awards. “A Star is Born” claimed Best Actor (Bradley Cooper) and Best Original Song (“Shallow”). Cooper’s win marks his first individual Gold Derby victory following his ensemble wins for “Silver Linings Playbook” (2012) and “American Hustle” (2013).

This marks the third victory for both film editor Tom Cross (who previously won for Damien Chazelle‘s “Whiplash” and “La La Land”) and composer Justin Hurtwitz (who won Best Score and Best Song for “La La Land”).

There is something nostalgic about vintage crime book covers from mid-20th century, a period when bookstore shelves included an abundance of low-cost paperbacks which everyone seemed to be reading. These illustrations, which range from portrayals of femme fatales to tough men who solve their problems with their fists, are in a way an important part of […]
