It's furious. And ferocious. Did we say funny? Because it's pretty freakin' funny too. What other F words can we use? Fennell! Emerald Fennell. You gave her three Oscar nominations, for writing, directing and producing this furious, ferocious and funny movie. And you also nominated our star, Carey Mulligan, who, no matter what that Variety critic wrote (and thank you, Variety, for displaying such integrity and courage to apologize, nearly a year after the review ran, for minimizing her daring performance), is probably going to win the Oscar for lead actress.

Plus you gave us an editing nomination too. Picture, director, writing, editing, acting — add them all up and you have all the precursors needed to win. Fabulous!
