In a time when news viewers are splintering around partisan leanings, CNN is proving to be a uniter, not a divider: people from both sides of the political aisle are eager to criticize its business decisions and news coverage. The one-time plain vanilla network can’t win for losing as it tries to achieve an elusive […]

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”).

The Hidden Depths of Island Building It takes a man of vision to write on water. Dreams so big only the sea can hold them. When considering the destruction or, what I call, the suffocation of the sea, much scholarship focuses on either the overexploitation of fisheries, the war on plastics and/or the implications of […]
