  1. Glad Blue... won the top prize. Surprised that Dern and Bejo won the acting categories though. That will help their Oscar campaigns, no doubt.

    1. Yeah, Dern especially surprises me considering the raves that Douglas and Redford received. For me, Dern still comes down to category placement. If he goes Supporting, I could see him win. If he goes Lead, I could see him snubbed the nomination.
