On January 6th, The Golden Globes kicked off awards season – the first few months of the year, during which the best of television, film and music are honoured. As a movie-lover, it’s a privilege to witness and celebrate the incredible achievements of producers, directors, writers, editors and actors in the industry. With the Academy Awards looming, I can’t help but think about all of the buzzworthy movies set for release in 2019. These are the ones I’m most looking forward to…
