The 2019 Golden Coffee Cups Movie Nominees

The members and volunteers of Coffee Party USA have voted on the best of the shortlist for the 2019 Coffee Party Entertainment Awards for movies, also known as the Golden Coffee Cups, so it’s time to announce the nominees for the third annual edition of these honors.

Eight feature films from 2019 earned nominations. In descending order by number of nominations, they are “Bombshell” with six, “The Two Popes” with five, “Harriet” with three, “The Report” with two, and “1917,” “Angel Has Fallen,” “Jojo Rabbit,” and “Just Mercy” with one each. “Bombshell,” “The Two Popes,” and “Harriet” garnered nominations both for Best Drama or Comedy about Politics or Government of 2019 (Best Scripted Political Movie) and in two or more acting categories, while “1917” and “Jojo Rabbit” earned a nomination for Best Scripted Political Movie and “Angel Has Fallen” and “The Report” collected their nominations in the acting categories.

In addition to Best Actor in a Political Film and Best Portrayal of a Government Official in a Film, Coffee Party USA is instituting a new acting award this year, Best Portrayal of an Activist or Concerned Citizen in a Film. As an activist organization, Coffee Party USA is using this award to recognize outstanding fictional examples of activists in cinema.

Eight political documentaries from 2019 also earned nominations. Three nominees, “American Factory,” “Apollo 11,” and “Knock Down the House,” received two nominations each, both for Best Political Documentary and for Best Appearance of a Government Official in a Documentary, while the rest garnered only one nomination each, “Slay the Dragon” and “The Great Hack” for Best Political Documentary and “Hail Satan?,” “St. Louis Superman,” and “The Kingmaker” for Best Appearance of a Government Official in a Documentary.
