Awww yes, the Yorgos Lanthimos party bus is coming to the discourse zone!

The favourite is a terrific movie, Coleman’s performance was brilliant and nothing would’ve made me happier than seeing it get the best picture award at the Oscars. It sucks that it didn’t get it, but hopefully what it achieved will result in Yorgos Lanthimos getting to make more weird and awkward movies.
