Location: Redstone Theater

Snubbed: Regina Hall 

 Dir. Andrew Bujalski. 2018, U.S. 93 mins. DCP. With Regina Hall, Haley Lu Richardson, Dylan Gelula, Zoe Graham. Regina Hall is effortlessly magnetic as Lisa, the general manager of the Hooters-like sports bar Double Whammies in this charming, easy-going comedy from acclaimed American director Bujalski (Computer Chess, Mutual Appreciation). Over the course of one long, difficult day, the nurturing and protective Lisa has her optimism tested at every turn. With a focus on the sisterhood among the waitresses, this ensemble comedy finds feminist solidarity in the unlikeliest of places. Hall was named Best Actress of 2018 by the New York Film Critics Circle and was nominated for Best Female Lead at the 2018 Independent Spirit Awards, yet she was ignored by the Academy. Either she made it look too easy or this brand of light comedy isn’t Oscar’s bag, but her nimble, open-hearted work will stand the test of time.
