|La La Land|
The fact that this wins here despite the fact that it won NOTHING else and they so clearly adored Moonlight just goes to show the power of a universal crowd pleaser. I can't see ANYTHING taking the Oscar over this. It is written.
|Barry Jenkins for Moonlight|
I have doubted him since the beginning, because he feels like such a critical darling that Oscar inevitably snubs, but his wins are starting to rack up (he also won NBR) and so maybe he will become a force.
|Manchester By the Sea|
|Michelle Williams for Certain Women|
|Michelle Williams for Manchester By the Sea|
I want to believe that this is still Michelle's year, but Davis is salivating over the chance to snatch that Oscar and she feels like a real Oscar choice, so I have such doubts!!!
|Mahershala Ali for Moonlight|
I kind of hate myself right now for doubting his Oscar chances. I mean, I still don't think he's locked in or anything, but I something brewing.
|Casey Affleck for Manchester By the Sea|
|Isabelle Huppert for Elle|
|Isabelle Huppert for The Things to Come|
She's shaping up to be the Marion Cotillard of this year. I'm more than OK with this!
I've doubted all things Moonlight, but it could be much stronger than anticipated. It could also sweep through the critics and still wind up Oscar snubbed in the end. This is a very tricky combination of critical darling with very un-Oscary material.
Are we serious? I mean, I love this movie...and I wholly expect it to be Oscar unstoppable, but even with the critics?
|O.J. Made in America|
I did not see this film being as strong as it is...
I have a feeling this will be our Oscar winner...
|The Edge of Seventeen|
And yet another win for Krisha. I don't know what to make of this, but could it make a play for Documentary? Is it eligible? I need to find this out.
