Tick, Tick… BOOM and The Lost Daughter delivered as well

The Lost Daughter was a movie that made its way to our screens almost at the end of the year. However, it still left an impact on us, thanks to the brilliant performance of the actors and splendid direction. Olivia Colman deserves a special appreciation for her role in the movie, and she has received that with the Best Actress of The Year Award at the London Critics’ Circle Awards.

If anyone asks us to summarise 2021 in two words, we will proudly yell out “Andrew Garfield“. The owner of a chameleon accent, which is deceiving enough to make us believe he belongs to every single part of the world, is something we all will die for. Andrew Garfield won British/Irish Actor for 2021; thanks to his alluring work on various projects, including Netflix’s Tick, Tick… Boom!, The Eyes of Tammy Faye, Spider-Man: No Way Home, and Mainstream.
