Do any of you Brits vote for the Rising Star award? And is it one of those things where
you only vote once or you can vote multiple times like American Idol or something? I'd
vote for Josh O'Connor.

Well, if the award shows already aired are anything to go by, both of these movies are going to be left out in the cold.

True. I think the best bet might be James Ivory for adapted screenplay.

Or, if the Brits here get together (and their acquaintances) and vote for the Rising Star award!
But which one?

Lyle, I’ve got as far as googling how to vote, but now I’ve got to make up my mind... I’m utterly torn. So perhaps I’d better be pro Brit and go for Josh.

Excellent choice!

I tried to vote one year to see if I could, but it wouldn't let me!

I watched, on UK Netflix, Lazy Eye.  I quite enjoyed it - beautiful setting in Joshua Tree NP, and pleasant actors. The dialogue and acting was a little clunky at times, and there’s was a lot of talking, perhaps more theatrical than cinematic, which didn’t bother me though some reviewers thought too much. But an interesting, not over-romanticised story of relationships. I liked it, but probably wouldn’t watch again.
