I have been a little out of the loop movie-wise but I can always count on the Oscars to help steer me toward wonderful films. Let’s take a look at the nominees in the big categories.
Arrival (loved it)
Hell or High Water
La La Land (liked it, but had some problem spots)
Manchester by the Sea (tore me apart but what a great movie)
Opinion – the three I’ve seen are all worthy.
Isabelle Huppert (Elle)
Ruth Negga (Loving)
Natalie Portman (Jackie)
Emma Stone ( La La Land) (she really carried the movie)
Meryl Streep (Florence Foster Jenkins)
Opinion – I’ve only seen one performance and she was fantastic
Casey Affleck (Manchester by the Sea) (incredible performance)
Andrew Garfield (Hacksaw Ridge)
Ryan Gosling (La La Land) (good lead)
Viggo Mortensen (Captain Fantastic) (he kills it every time and this was no different)
Denzel Washington (Fences)
Opinion – Personally I’d choose Casey or Viggo but I know La La is getting all the love)
So, tell me what you think about the ones that you’ve seen and maybe I can get to them before the Oscars!
