With 2020 in the rearview mirror and our annual Nominee Interview Series concluded, it’s time to announce the winners of this year’s Critics’ Pick Awards! Covid-19 restrictions put a major damper on our awards season this year, cutting our theatre division drastically and shutting down the cinema awards entirely. But television, boy, television was our […]

It’s time once again for our annual Critics’ Pick Award nominations! It’s an understatement to say that 2020’s been an unusual time. Covid-19 restrictions put a major damper on our awards season this year, cutting our theatre division drastically and shutting down the cinema awards entirely. But television, boy, television was our everything this year. […]

We survived 2020! As the world heals itself from the single most insane year in memory, we’re choosing to look back with as much positivity as we can. The best way we can think to do that is to celebrate our annual Awards Season, even if there isn’t as much to celebrate as there usually […]

Every year, I try to see as many new release films as I can. I rank everything as I go so that, when it’s all said and done, I can publish a list that completely encapsulates my experience of the year in film. Usually I run this series through the first few months of the […]

Popular culture is fractured today more than it has ever been. Keeping up with the deluge of good content out there is a full-time job – or maybe that’s just my excuse for not getting around to watching Fleabag yet. Regardless, this profusion of good art makes it so year-end best-of lists are even less […]

There was so much incredible TV this decade. An insane amount, really. This was also the decade that changed the medium so drastically that, for both better and worse, it’s almost unrecognizable. My initial list for this post was over 80 shows. I’ve cut it down to 30 favourites with just a little bit of cheating by […]

These aren’t the best movies of the decade. I don’t know what those are. And neither do you. The best we can do is mention what we loved most and stop trying to claim that any piece of art can be the “best”. It’s been a long 10 years. Here are the movies that helped me get through: The […]

I wasn’t going to do this. I’m wary of “best of” lists at the best of times, the decade doesn’t really end until next year, and I couldn’t help but be hyper-aware of what I was leaving off the list because time and conflict and sunlight have cast pretty big shadows over much of the theatre I loved […]

Every year, I try to see as many new release films as I can. The idea is to see them between January 1st and December 31st but those pesky last-December releases and super limited runs usually mean I’m still seeking out a few titles into the new year (I’ll come clean- it took me like […]

2018 was an odd year in movies. It started off with a bang as the last few gems of the sublime 2017 slate hit wide release alongside irresistible early-season contenders like game-changing blockbuster Black Panther in February and gorgeous indie Thoroughbreds in March. It was a year noted for landmark inclusion and defied expectations. It felt […]

2017 was rough on a lot of people but the art, boy, the art was something else. This year saw a flood of television masterworks, a ton of killer theatre, and more fantastic movies released in the course of 12 months than we can remember in our lifetimes. It was something to see and we […]

We’re not exaggerating when we say that we can’t remember a year of movies better than this one. The prestige dramas were good, the action movies were good, the indie darlings were incredible. There were great superhero movies and great rom-coms and great monster movies and great war movies and even a great musical. Why […]
