    2016/2017 Awards Season

    Gotham Awards Nominations:


    The Gotham Awards really don't indicate too much, they never have, but in recent years they've been getting closer and closer to getting nominations correct for the big prize. I think this will be Annette Benings' time for an Oscar.
    Gotham has a lot of love for Manchester by the Sea.
    Jessica Jones gets some love from the Gothams, as well. Nice to see any recognition for that wonderful series.
    I got so much flavor put me on the buffet.

    Rebecca Hall is getting some serious buzz for Christine, as well. I saw Moonlight last night and hope it sweeps every awards show this season. It was staggeringly beautiful. I openly wept for at least half the film.

    Seems like most of the momentum is going to Manchester by The Sea which was predicted months ago by Gold Derby

    Moonlight, La La Land, Manchester By the Sea, Loving and Arrival seem to be the frontrunners - none of them have come out here yet, but I'm looking forward to seeing them for myself.

    Manchester by the Sea is a film from Amazon Studios. Hopefully it will be up for ondemand at the same time it's in theaters since its a smaller film.

    Just to admit biases up front, my theme for this awards season is Give Amy Adams a Fucking Oscar Already. Thing is, though, is that she's not a shoo-in for a nomination. It seems to me there are three certain nominations (Stone, Bening, Portman) and four leaders for the next two slots (Adams, Huppert, Negga, Streep). But I think that any one of those women could gain steam this month and sweep to a nod or even a win.

    For Actor, Casey Affleck looks strong out of the gate. Here, it looks like there are six contenders for five slots (Affleck, Washington, Gosiing, Hanks, Garfield, Edgerton). Personally, I think Hanks is soft. I'd love to see Joel Edgerton get in there for Loving; it's a really unique and affecting performance. But it's extremely low-key (obviously by design ), and that can be tricky for Oscar voters.

    Oh, BTW, the Oscar-bait films I've seen so far are Arrival, Loving, and Nocturnal Animals. And I'm basing my opinions on Variety's; those are usually pretty solid. I'll be back later with stuff about supporting roles and the New York Critic Circle's awards, which are currently being tweeted out one at a time. Kind of a fun idea!
    At my core, I think we're gonna be OK.

    I think the Best Picture race is Moonlight, Manchester By the Sea, and La La Land. At least now. They each got one of the first three.

    This is shaping up to be such a good year! I would love to see Isabelle Huppert get in. Though I'm sure she doesn't give a a shit about the Oscars.

    I think she's one of the few non-English speaking actresses who is so well-known, she could just get a career award from the Academy. I'm Team Amy, but I wouldn't mind her winning at all. She's a force of nature. And I'm definitely seeing Elle.
