BEST PICTURE: WILL WIN: La La Land POSSIBLE UPSETS: Moonlight, Hidden Figures I think La La Land, which is the frontrunner, will win this. I think the only two films that have a shot at upsetting are Moonlight or Hidden … Continue reading My Official And Final Oscar Predictions
As part of my continuing list-coverage off the upcoming Oscars, I thought I’d go with the 10 people that I was like… holy shit. They were nominated for an Oscar? Really? If you think the Oscars regret Nicolas Cage, then … Continue reading 10 Actors/Actresses You Won’t Believe Were Nominated For An Oscar
As we march closer to the Oscars on Sunday, I thought it might be nice to post some lists about the Oscars. For this list, I just took all four acting categories, and picked the 10 people who I thought were the least deserving of their wins. I’ve seen nine of these ten performances. I tried only picking out roles that I had actually seen, but when I saw that Art Carney beat out some true heavy hitters, I had to include him on this list, especially given the general consensus that he probably shouldn’t have won that Oscar. I have two honorable mentions: Marisa Tomei for My Cousin Vinny and Jack Palance for City Slickers. I didn’t include them because I hadn’t seen enough of their competition to really make me feel like they robbed someone else more deserving of an Oscar.
The Razzies of course announced their nominations also, and I don’t always agree with them. I think they target the big films, and they miss out on smaller films that are just terrible. Like, as you’ll see below, I saw … Continue reading Worst Of 2016: My Complete Picks
So here are my quick thoughts on the nominations. Meryl Streep got her historic 20th nomination last night. 14 nominations for La La Land. Holy crap. That ties it for the most nominations in history. Amy Adams snubbed. Lots of … Continue reading Oscar Nomination Reactions

In continuation, here are my next 10 films on my Top 30 list. This list is different from how I graded films, though I can say that everything on my list got at least a B+. When compiling this list … Continue reading Best Of 2016: My Top 30 Favorite Films (20-11)
Alright, so this was a good year for films. I honestly couldn’t compile a smaller list of films I liked or loved. I settled on 30, because I felt like I got to name most of the films I liked this year that way. This list is different from how I graded films, though I can say that everything on my list got at least a B+. When compiling this list I thought about how much I personally enjoyed the film. Will I watch it again? Will I buy it on DVD or Bluray? Did I recommend it to anyone? Have I already seen it multiple times? A lot of films I grade higher because of one or two great performances, and not because the film is good. Those films end up often not making this list.

I’m about to start releasing my top 10 performances lists, but there are some performances this year that are outside that list. I figured, I’d list them here. Of course, this might give you an idea of what my top 10’s are, since these performances are going to be missing from those lists. I’ve left off performances I was able to already recognize in another category, like comedy, or young actor. These are all performances, for the most part, that at one time or another were on my top 10 list, but got moved off as I saw more films.
