beautiful book called on going to buy a robot to buy was. the same. but we begin with the golden globes and in the ongoing war between streaming services and hollywood it seems hollywood was the big winner this time netflix did have 34 nominations but only walked away with 2 prizes. best movie in the comedy or musical category went to quentin tarantino's once upon a time in hollywood and brad pitt also picked up best supporting actor that. best actor in a drama unsurprisingly went to joaquin phoenix for his amazing tool to force in the joker. and also no surprise best actress to run a zellweger for her portrayal i am singing in judy. and the big surprise came in the best movie drama category it wasn't the 2 netflix front
runners the arash men or marriage story that took the prize but 1917 directed by sam mendez the movie is played out in real time as though it's one continuous 2 are shot is more. because. 917 is the story of 2 young british world war one soldiers on an almost impossible life or death mission. because. soldiers show field and blake have to get through enemy lines of void booby traps and hand deliver a very clear message to their comrades they even come into direct contact with the enemy. at the height of world war one the germans have pretended to treat but are really lying in wait for 1600. just so just
to fall into the trap. colonel mckenzie has not seen these aerials of the enemy's new line around here just. to look at this to colonel mckenzie it is a direct order to call off tomorrow morning's attack if you don't it will be a massacre. and the golden. is to sam and i the film picked up 2 golden globes including best director. finally i'd like to dedicate this to my grandfather alfred hubert mendez who inspired this film he signed up for the 1st world war he was age 17 and i hope is looking down on us and i hope i fervently hope it never ever happens again when the movie picks up the golden globe for best drama director sam mendes took the opportunity to take a swipe at streaming service netflix i really hope this means that people will turn up and see it on

new from a young age that she wanted to be a cantor. truth. are the. women are not usually allowed to lead songful prayer in orthodox synagogue such as this one. female cantors are accepted in more liberal communities but here she's only allowed to lead prayer at a special service for women normally men and women here pray separately with the women in the back. our. motion high unit is the community's official counter. who. says the voice of a woman could distract men and prevent them from concentrating on their prayers.
