The film won top honors for film of the year and received gongs for director Haynes, lead actress Cate Blanchett and screenplay.

Urgh, serious lack of competition is the problem...or an unawareness of movies out there. At no place do they even mention The Danish girl yet movies like Revenant is here. What is LGBT about these movies? Please who are these people in fact? Please I can't shout!
