2018 Recap - The Performances


2018 was an impressive year for the film industry with so many great movies and lots of outstanding performances as well. After compiling my nomination list, I realized that the ladies were definitely leading the way this year so I decided to go with female actors in all of the available nomination slots. After scouring all the films I watched this seemed appropriate and an honest appraisal as I couldn't find any men who matched the ten women who were chosen.

In addition to the nominations, I have included a few special categories to start things off. The amazing actresses and actors listed below come from all over the world including England, Mexico, Italy, Japan, and Oakland and a Bay Area duo is where we will start things off.

TwoOhSix Recap - 2019 Seattle Asian American Film Festival


This is such a fun and well organized festival and I am thankful for having the chance to cover it every year. The crop of movies I was able to watch was very impressive and the opening night party was a lot of fun including a killer set from Filipina-American rapper Ruby Ibarra. Seriously, check her out, she's about to be real big real soon. The volunteer staff that runs the festival always puts on a smooth production and this year was definitely no exception. See below for a recap of the films I watched and my selection for 2019 TwoOhSix Festival Favorite.
