Addio Commentary: An Award Season Rollercoaster

I don’t know what type of Oscar nominations I prefer: a list of predictable winners, or names and films that are constantly in a status shift.  Judging by all of the different winners in recent award ceremonies, it’s clear the 90th annual Oscars fall in the latter category.  But, again, I’m stumped over if I actually enjoy this much variety.

Lady Bird

By: Trevor Chartrand The meandering narrative of Lady Bird, though at times unfocused and opened-ended, is both heartwarming and humorous as it examines the life of a struggling teen overwhelmed by dysfunction and her perceived notion of persecution at every turn.  An offbeat coming-of-age comedy, Lady Bird wonderfully depicts the innocence of youth in search of love, purpose, and acceptance in a confusing and changing world.
