Notes On The Season: Laura Dern Tribute, Tarantino’s Screenwriting Advice, Joaquin Phoenix Leaves SAG Awards For Pig Vigil

Just a little more than two weeks to go until the big night on February 9, and a key moment will happen Saturday when the winner of the all-too-Oscar-predictive DGA Award will be announced at the Ritz Carlton in downtown Los Angeles. If it is Sam Mendes for 1917, it will likely cap a huge night for that film as cinematographer Roger Deakins is expected to win handily at the Asc Awards ceremony across town at the same time. A win would make him and the picture instant frontrunners for the Oscar.

On the other hand, if it is Parasite’s Bong Joon-Ho it will immediately spark comparisons to last year, when another Foreign Language film, Roma, won for its director Alfonso Cuarón (who returns to present the prize tomorrow), but it won’t instantly make Parasite a slam dunk for the Best Picture Oscar.
