How it would all look if I selected the nominees and winners each year!

Dickie Awards Race 2021
Yes only two nominees. Because I didn't like any of the other international films that I saw (Drive My Car, The Worst Person in the World, Parallel Mothers, A Hero) enough to even nominate them - sorry about it!! ;)
As for the win, the decision is easier given that Flee is winning my Animated Feature and Documentary Feature awards in a cake walk; but nonetheless, The Hand of God deserves this. It's such a satisfying film on so many levels: moving coming-of-age semi-autobiographical tale, Italian countryside mood piece, quirky family comedy, layered ensemble character study... Check it out!
