2022 Golden Globe Winner Predictions (Movies)

This mess won’t be broadcast, and I, for one, am grateful. It’s overblown. And apparently organized by some racist, rapey, people. That said, movies are fun so let’s do something predictions.

Who I think should win and who will actually win are often different. In fact, some of the people I thought should be nominated, weren’t. I barely watched TV, so I’ll only do movies. Here goes nothing:

Inspired by ‘Escape at Dannemora’

Made this piece while watching the impeccable Escape at Dannemora. Ben Stiller is a kickass director and the acting? Amazing. Any description I give won’t do any of the talent justice. As an aside, as a probation officer in New York who goes in and out of prisons all day, all the time- I can assure you they got what it’s like in this field right.

Check it out if you haven’t yet. Available on Showtime.

Frame this.

Like I said on Twitter, I would like this picture of Bill Murray wearing this outfit and two watches to the premiere of The French Dispatch preserved and put up at The Louvre next to the Mona Lisa. The sight of his outfit in contrast to Tilda Swinton’s sharp suit is HIGH ART.

Hanx

This piece is inspired by some of his greatest characters. Completed on July 8, 2021

Happy 65th Birthday to Tom Hanks. Simply the best.

Shout out of the day: Kenneth Lonergan

I first discovered Kenneth Lonergan when I read the play ‘The Waverly Gallery’, which was about a boy watching his grandmother die of Alzheimer’s disease. At the time, I was watching MY grandmother die of the same, and visited her regularly at a nursing home in the Bronx. While Waverly Place was hard for me to read, knowing others also had this experience made me feel less alone. NY might be populated, but when you are going through heartbreak, you feel very much alone. Lonergan helped me.

I drew this piece (techniques and medium: acrylic, airbrushes, calligraphy pen) -in honor of Mr. Lonergan, a fellow Bronx-born artist and inspiration. I’m assuming he is no longer in the Bronx- like I’m not – but still very much shaped by having lived there.

Every film and play he has created has been stellar, and really speaks to the human condition. Stories with memorable characters navigating through the most difficult of circumstances. He’s made me laugh and cry. He’s made me laugh while I cry. Here’s to artists like Lonergan who exude a quiet strength. After all, only someone with that quality could give us unforgettable stories like: #Thisisouryouth #Margaret #TheWaverlyGallery #YouCanCountOnMe #AnalyzeThis #manchesterbythesea #gangsofnewyork #LobbyHero
