Thank you to everyone who celebrated the 2020 film year with us. We only have a few more days left in this year’s awards season before the Oscars on April 25th (thank god!) but we will be back in the off-season with our 2013 retrospective where we will look back on the films of that year up until the end of the summer. Till then!
