‘Get Out’ won big at last night’s Spirit Awards, taking home ‘Best Feature’ and ‘Best Director’, with many hoping to the film repeats this success at tonight’s Oscars! Frances McDormand won ‘Best Female Lead’ for her performance in ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’, and Sam Rockwell took home the award for ‘Best Supporting Male’.
Timothée Chalamet beat Daniel Kaluuya, Robert Pattinson, James Franco, and Harris Dickinson to take home the award for ‘Best Male Lead’ for his role in ‘Call Me By Your Name’. The film also took home the prize for ‘Best Cinematography’ by Sayombhu Mukdeeprom. If there was one, Chalamet would also have won the award for ‘Most Tweeted About’ during the ceremony, in which he FaceTimed a shirtless Armie Hammer, apologised to the wet floor for almost slipping, and dramatically presented Sam Rockwell his award.
