With Shuzhen Zhao, Awkwafina, X Mayo, Hong Lu.

To everyone else: Onward. It won for Baubmach's screenplay and was awarded the Spirits’ ensemble award, dubbed the Robert Altman Award. But hey, you say, Whiplash was one of those!

The film premiered at Sundance in January, where it collected rave reviews and landed a distribution deal with taste-making A24 (who had an excellent year all around, with horror smash Midsommar and another ultimately disappointed awards-hopeful Uncut Gems) for around $6 million. Best documentary went to “American Factory.” Willem Dafoe won best supporting actor for “The Lighthouse,” which also was honored for Jarin Blaschke's cinematography. Olivia Wilde won best first feature for her high-school comedy “Booksmart.” A recently created grant for mid-career female filmmakers dubbed the Bonnie Award was also given to Kelly Reichardt ("Wendy and Lucy," “First Cow”). The Academy has been making efforts to diversify its membership, but change won’t happen overnight. Only one Oscar favorite among the actors was also competing at the Spirits: Renee Zellweger. It stars Awkwafina, Tzi Ma, Diana Lin, Zhao Shuzhen, Lu Hong, and Jiang Yongbo. THE FAREWELL (A24) Each year, there are movies that I feel were overlooked by major awards bodies. Entertainment Weekly is a registered trademark of Meredith Corporation All Rights Reserved. 'The Farewell,' Adam Sandler triumph at Spirit Awards, Senator's mispronunciation of Kamala Harris' name called 'incredibly racist', Melania Trump strikes back at former friend who secretly recorded conversations, Neo-Nazi and Proud Boys groups push Trump campaign poll watching online: Reports, Company faces investigation for allegedly exaggerating role in Operation Warp Speed. “The Farewell” was shutout by the film academy, which instead heaped nominations on bigger-budget epics including “1917,” “Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood" and “The Irishman.” The Spirits, the premier awards ceremony for indie film, cap nominees at a budget of $22.5 million. Why history will remember it better than the Academy did: The Academy has some catching up to do with Hollywood, which in turn has a lot of catching up to do with the human race, but the industry is finally — finally — opening itself up, the tiniest bit more, to artists other than white men.The Farewell will be remembered not only as another step toward greater Asian-American representation onscreen, for which 2018’s smash Crazy Rich Asians was a watershed release, but also as a breakout moment for both Awkwafina and Wang, both major talents who are now poised to launch their careers to new heights. The film will also be remembered for having pierced the hearts of all its viewers who have ever loved a wonderful grandmother, or occupied that strange place of pre-grieving that comes with a terminal diagnosis, or not known what they’re doing next in their life.

Wang referenced the conversation around the dearth of female filmmaker nominated by the Academy Awards in her speech. | "It's the daytime, we're on the beach, we recognize female directors.”. In adherence with Chinese custom, Billi’s family conceals the bad news from Nai Nai herself; to provide themselves with an excuse to gather together in China one last time and say goodbye to the oblivious, ailing matriarch, they hastily plan a wedding for Billi’s cousin. A summer release date didn’t help, and the Academy also loves high-drama drama — where are their beloved histrionics in this movie about a great group effort to show restraint? Offers may be subject to change without notice. The win Saturday for “The Farewell” was a surprise, but also a fitting finale to a Spirit Awards that exalted female filmmakers and put forth a far more diverse field of nominees than the film academy. Rather than delivering an inauthentic version of her personal history, she stepped away from trying to make a feature and wound up sharing the tale on an episode of This American Life — where the right producers heard it and were inspired to help her make exactly the movie she wanted to.

Writer/director Lulu Wang finds a rich vein of humor in the dark mines of mortality, a rare feat illuminated by the sparkling star turn of Awkwafina, whose performance looks to the future as a bond between East and West, comedy and drama, and generations young and old. User Ratings Awkwafina, previously known as a comedic actress and rapper, made her dramatic range clear to the world with her performance in The Farewell (for which she was also named one of EW’s 2019 Entertainers of the Year); her various projects in development include a Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Disney’s live-action Little Mermaid.
