With only one person of color nominated in an acting category and no women nominated for best director, 2020 promised to be a repeat of the many #OscarsSoWhite awards seasons where stories centering on white people directed by white men were going to once again rule the day. (See “Green Book,” 2019.)

Yet after 92 years, “Parasite” became the first foreign-language film to break the language barrier and win the motion picture academy’s highest honor.

^David Zurawik: Edie Falco brings premium cable talent and class to network drama in ‘Tommy’

^TV-ZURAWIK-COLUMN:BZ_

My contempt for network drama as compared to premium cable and streamed productions reached the point in recent years where I would ask anyone defending the genre to name one series besides NBC’s “This Is Us” that they regularly went out of their way to see. The answer was usually silence.

But Edie Falco, one of the finest actors to ever work in television, doing a weekly network series? To me, that was news.

^’To All the Boys 2′: How Lana Condor and Jenny Han made a teen heroine for themselves

VID-TOALLTHEBOYS2:LA _ Bestselling author Jenny Han had just flown cross-country from New York to meet up with Lana Condor, the star of her hit “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” movies, when the actress turned to her with an urgent query: “Do you think I’m like Kitty or Lara Jean or Margot in real life?”

Han took the serious question under serious consideration. After all, Condor skyrocketed to fame overnight playing bookish teen heroine Lara Jean Song Covey, the romance-obsessed protagonist of the 2018 film adapted from Han’s bestselling novel and its new sequel, “To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You” (now streaming on Netflix).

^’Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist’: Jane Levy shines in musical series

^TV-ZOEYS-EXTRAORDINARYPLAYLIST-LEVY:SJ_

She’s not even a big Broadway nerd.

No matter. Levy is the leading lady of NBC’s offbeat new musical drama series and she’s having an absolute blast.

“Sometimes you feel like you are exactly where you’re supposed to be,” she says. “That’s how I feel right now with this show.”
