When Actor & Actress are a package deal

"A very cool list though to be honest I wouldn’t have handed these wins to any of the pairs in these years." - Joel

"NETWORK should have easily won The Big Five. It's so weird to see 3 acting winners from a movie whose characters barely even interact with each other, if ever really. " - Craver

an outre comedy anthology - six tales of revenge. It's a real crowd pleaser
This war time drama about a farmer and a wounded man is very popular with those who've seen it.

Villagers are beset by extremists in this heartwrenching drama.

A major hit at the US arthouse and a potential winner. Stands out from the crowd for brevity, impact and aesthetic

This angry political film about a fisherman losing his beloved home to corrupt government is engaging, darkly funny and critically acclaimed.
