The AARP Honors Top Gun: Maverick!


To be honest, the AARP naming Top Gun: Maverick the best film of 2022 is perhaps the least surprising moment of the 2022 awards season.  Don’t get me wrong.  I love Top Gun: Maverick and it’s my pick for the best of 2022.  But I don’t think there was ever any doubt that it was going to win with an organization made up of people who saw the first Top Gun when it was originally released in theaters.

Anyway, here are all the AARP winners!  You can see all of the nominees by clicking here.

Here’s What Won At Sundance

To be absolutely honest, I didn’t really pay much attention to the Sundance Film Festival this year.  I may or may not regret that come next December.  Traditionally, it seems that at least a few Oscar contenders begin their journey at Sundance but there’s always a chance that the big Sundance success story could turn out to be something like Zolaa film that gets a lot of festival hype but doesn’t really stick around in anyone’s mind afterwards.

Today, the 2023 Sundance Film Festival’s awards winners were announced.  Time will tell whether or not the films listed below will have much of a life outside of Sundance.  Out of the films honored, Magazine Dreams sounds like the one most likely to break out.

The Writers Guild Announces Their Nominees For The Best Screenplays of 2022!

Earlier today, the Writers Guild of America announced their nominees for the best screenplays of 2022.  As happens every year, a lot of screenplays were deemed ineligible, largely because they weren’t written by members of the WGA.  That’s certainly fair enough.  (Among the “big” films to be declared ineligible: Triangle of Sadness, Banshees of Inisherin, RRR, and All Quiet on the Western Front.)  Here is what was nominated:


Everything Everywhere All At Once – Written by Daniel Kwan & Daniel Scheinert; A24
The Fabelmans – Written by Steven Spielberg & Tony Kushner; Universal Pictures
The Menu – Written by Seth Reiss & Will Tracy; Searchlight Pictures
Nope – Written by Jordan Peele; Universal Pictures

She Said – Screenplay by Rebecca Lenkiewicz, Based on the New York Times Investigation by Jodi Kantor, Megan Twohey and Rebecca Corbett and the Book She Said by Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey; Universal Pictures
Top Gun: Maverick – Screenplay by Ehren Kruger and Eric Warren Singer and Christopher McQuarrie, Story by Peter Craig and Justin Marks, Based on Characters Created by Jim Cash & Jack Epps, Jr.; Paramount Pictures
Women Talking – Screenplay by Sarah Polley, Based upon the Book by Miriam Toews; Orion Pictures/MGM

Last Flight Home – Written by Ondi Timoner; MTV Documentary Films
Moonage Daydream – Written by Brett Morgen; Neon
¡Viva Maestro! – Written by Theodore Braun; Greenwich Entertainment

How will the WGA nominations effect the Oscar nominations?  They won’t, seeing as the Oscar nominations were announced yesterday.  Personally, I respect the WGA’s commitment to not being a precursor.  The winners will be announced on March 5th.

What If Lisa Marie Picked The Oscar Nominees: 2022 Edition

With the Oscar nominations due to be announced tomorrow, now is the time that the Shattered Lens indulges in a little something called, “What if Lisa Marie had all the power.” Listed below are my personal Oscar nominations. Please note that these are not the films that I necessarily think will be nominated. The fact of the matter is that the many of them will not be. Instead, these are the films that would be nominated if I was solely responsible for deciding the nominees this year. Winners are listed in bold.

It should also go without saying that I’ve only nominated films that I’ve actually seen.  So, if you’re wondering why a certain film wasn’t nominated, it’s always possible that may have not gotten the opportunity to see it yet.  Of course, it’s also possible that I didn’t feel that a certain film was worthy of a nomination, despite what the critics may say.  In the end, my best advice is not to worry too much about it.  I’m not an Academy voter so ultimately, this is all for fun and that’s the spirit in which it should be taken.

You’ll also note that I’ve added four categories, all of which I believe the Academy should adopt — Best Voice-Over Performance, Best Casting, Best Stunt Work, and Best Overall Use Of Music In A Film.

(Click on the links to see my nominations for 2021, 2020201920182017201620152014201320122011, and 2010!)

Here Are The 2022 Razzie Nominations!

The Razzies are meant to honor the worst of the year.  Usually, they tend to go after the easy targets.  For the most part, this year’s nominees deserve to be nominated but I would say that nominating Tom Hanks for Elvis just feels lazy.  Hanks gave a bizarre performance in Elvis but it was actually totally appropriate for what the film was going for.  The Razzies also appear to have taken offense to the portrayal of JFK in Blonde.  Won’t someone please think of the poor Kennedys!?

Anyway, here are the nominees!
