Overview

  • Who won biggest: The supervillain origin story Joker got 11 nominations, more than any other film this year. Three period dramas – The Irishman, 1917 and Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood – were close behind with 10 nominations each.
  • Who was snubbed: Little Women made the list six times, but while Greta Gerwig was nominated for screenwriting, she didn’t make the cut for best director. Several films that got positive reviews from The Globe’s critics were ignored, including Uncut Gems, Hustlers and Dolemite Is My Name. Here are film editor Barry Hertz’s picks for this year’s biggest snubs.
  • Best- and worst-reviewed films: On average, the nine best-picture nominees had ratings of 3.3 stars out of four from The Globe’s reviewers. Four had perfect scores: The Irishman, Marriage Story and Parasite, all reviewed by Hertz, and Little Women, reviewed by Chandler Levack. The lowest-reviewed of the nine films were Once Upon a Time ... In Hollywood, Joker and Ford v Ferrari, each of which got 2 1/2 stars from Hertz. And the worst-reviewed film in any category was the Christian drama Breakthrough, a nominee for best original song that got 1 1/2 stars from John Semley.
  • Who’s Canadian: The nominees’ Canadian contingent included Montrealer Meryam Joobeur, director of live-action short Brotherhood; Dean DeBlois of Aylmer, Que., director of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World; sound engineer Paul Massey for Ford v. Ferrari; and Vancouver-born production designer Dennis Gassner for 1917.
