The 2019 Golden Coffee Cup Movie Winners

The members of Coffee Party USA have voted on the nominees for the 2018 Coffee Party Entertainment Awards for movies, also known as the Golden Coffee Cups, so it’s time to announce the winners. “Harriet” swept the categories in which it was nominated, winning Best Drama or Comedy about Politics or Government of 2017 AKA the Best Political Scripted Movie, while Cynthia Erivo won two awards for playing Harriet Tubman in “Harriet,” Best Portrayal of an Activist or Concerned Citizen in a Film and Best Performance by an Actor in a Political Film, for a total of three awards. Annette Bening won the vote for Best Portrayal of a Government Official in a Film playing Senator Dianne Feinstein in “The Report.” “Apollo 11” won two awards, first for Best Documentary about Politics or Government and the second for U.S. President John F. Kennedy as Best Appearance of a Government Official in a Documentary. Congratulations to all the winners for depicting what the members of Coffee Party USA considered to be the best of politics and government in film during 2019!

Movies are not the only type of entertainment Coffee Party USA recognizes. The members will also be voting on the nominees and winners of the Golden Coffee Cups for television programs and their performers that demonstrate the best in politics and government on the small screen. Watch for an announcement of the shortlist of possible nominees from the 2018-2019 television season and an invitation to watch them next week, much like Coffee Party USA invites you to watch these political movies while staying safe at home, followed by the nominees of the 2019-2020 season in the summer.
