This is the time of year when writers, directors, actors, and even lowly film critics get inundated with screeners, meaning DVDs of this year’s most buzzed about movies. It’s so we can vote in our various guilds for award honors. And it means this is the time of year when we get to see celebrities geek out about their favorite movies of the year. Like who knew the Rock was so into docs?

CALL ME BY YOUR NAME — sweetness without a trace of sentimentality; a work made without fear of sentimentality. Sweetness beside sex. Sex that transmutes love. An intellectually rigorous examination that never loses warmth. Earnest, mature and endearing the whole way through.— Barry Jenkins (@BarryJenkins) December 29, 2017
And I’m glad I waited to see it in a theatre. Had no idea it was shot on emulsion. I may be reaching, but there’s a tension between the grain and the focus here. A delicate tension for sure. A struggle to resolve. A fleeting, elegiac struggle to resolve.— Barry Jenkins (@BarryJenkins) December 29, 2017
Big Fish screenwriter John August used Lady Bird as a teachable moment or three.
Also, hi @BeanieFeldstein you were great in this.— John August (@johnaugust) January 2, 2018
RuPaul gave a shout out to “Sir Shaw” Ronan and company.
LOVED film "Lady Bird." Sir Shaw, Greta Gerwig & Laurie Metcalf for the win. Beanie Feldstein is effen brilliant, too. pic.twitter.com/ndRqvj5vqV— RuPaul (@RuPaul) December 23, 2017
