… Julianne Moore, for best actress, for Gloria Bell (4 stars on 0-5 scale).

OK, I know it’s early, but Moore is spectacular in Sebastián Lelio’s remake of his 2013 Spanish-language Gloria. The redo might hold few surprises for those who have already seen the Chilean production, but it’s still worth watching, if only for Moore’s performance as an aging divorcee struggling through middle-aged loneliness. But if you are fresh to the story, you’ll find the film one of the best of 2019. And watch for great supporting performances by John Turturro, Caren Pistorius and Brad Garrett.
