Follow us down the Rainbow Road to the Oscars as we watch three early contenders for the gold: Jojo Rabbit, The Lighthouse, and Parasite. Then turn your attention to ’90s cult classic To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar, an American comedy/drama about three drag queens on a road trip through the US…sound familiar?
