Roma

Gurus o’ Gold Go Best Picture, Director, Cinematographer

Post-Thanksgiving, the Gurus shake up the Best Picture field on a couple of pictures that have just opened, reflecting critical and financial reception, as well as bright-and-sunny early previews for Mary Poppins Returns.

The Gurus also look upon best director and best cinematographer for the first time in 2018, with much love for one big black-and-white picture: Alfonso Cuarón’s cinematography on Roma makes a rare Gurus sweep.
