1) Will the remakes never stop—what is your damage, Heather?

2) An incredible list that just keeps growing — the BFI picked The 30 Best LGBT Films of All Time.

3) Because we’ll take a win wherever we can get it: here are all the Toronto locations that stood in for Boston in the Best Picture winner Spotlight.

4) And speaking of local pride: Room author and screenwriter Emma Donoghue won big at the Canadian Screen Awards this weekend, and then did the classiest thing possible and donated her $20,000 prize to the ImagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival.

5) His latest feature Midnight Special opens this weekend, but you should take a minute to appreciate the brilliance of Jeff Nichols’ Take Shelter and the Horrors of Mental Illness.

6) A (sadly) essential new docu-series The 4%: Film’s Gender Problem, featuring interviews with Julie Delpy, Kristen Wiig, Anjelica Huston, Mo'Nique, Michael Mann, Toni Colette, America Ferrera, Judd Apatow, James Franco and Paul Feig, and a lot more.
