It’s movie awards season, people, and as my gift to you, I’d like to share my selections for the 2020 Wilson Awards, which recognize and celebrate outstanding performances in life by my talented children. Enjoy!
For Best Actress in a Comedy, the obvious winner is Corinne. No surprises here, as she killed in the hilarious trilogy, “Color Guard” during her early career. Her penchant for accents, showcased so brilliantly in 2019’s “While Yorkshire Bemuses Love and Lass,” has cemented Corinne’s legacy among the greats. Friends, meet Lucille Ball 2.0!
For Best Actress in a Drama, the Wilson goes to … Maddie! We’ve seen her in several amazing films through the years, but nothing compares to her haunting portrayal of a baby sister wronged by her older siblings upon their offensive return from college in “They’re Back.” She has truly perfected the arts of eye-rolling door-slamming. Brava!
For Best Director in a Foreign Film, the academy is honoring Andrew for “Angst,” his brooding expose of a long-distance relationship between an aspiring American artist and a French foreign-exchange student. Beautifully shot in black and white, the film highlights Andrew’s gift for storytelling, even though the viewer is never certain of what is actually happening. C’est magnifique!
And finally, the Award for Best Sound, for the 15th consecutive year, goes to Geoffrey for his soaring opus “Always Loud.” This vocal genius continues to bring the volume with every minute of screen time. I don’t know how he does it, but Geoffrey is a perpetual, literal force of eardrum-busting nature. Kudos, kid.
There you have it, the 2020 Wilsons. Peace out.
