Here are your 2019 Golden Cages winners


With Oscar season over and all of our staff voting finished for this year’s Golden Cages awards, we here at Flixist wanted to take the time to recap everything that won and let you know what else was in the running. There were a ton of movies that got overlooked and we even had a moment where it was possible Avengers: Endgame might win “Best Picture” and “Most Overrated” at the same time.

But more importantly, 2019 was a landmark year for cinema. With the historic win of Parasite at the 92nd Academy Awards, it seems like the future of representation in Hollywood might finally be changing. Maybe I won’t need to be so grumpy about mainstream movies if mainstream stuff becomes a bit weirder. I like weird.
