The results of the Golden Globes were announced last night. To congratulate the Jewish winners and those shows with some Jewish content, here is a reminder of what our film and television critics thought of them.
Schitt’s Creek (two awards) may not be The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, says Vincent Brook, but it is marvellous and very, very Jewish!
Nathan Abrams looked forward to finding more Jews in The Crown‘s (four awards) new season.
Vincent Brook wonders if the protagonist of The Queen’s Gambit (two awards) is or isn’t Jewish.
Borat Subsequent Moviefilm (three awards) is chock full of Jewish jokes and humour some small, some writ large, Nathan Abrams writes. Sean Alexander offers another view on the Borat sequel.
Jack Shamash calls The Trial of the Chicago 7 (one award) a great film but strangely whitewashed of Jewishness. Vincent Brook offers another perspective.
