My predictions: 5/5
My ballot: Come back in February!
The nominees: Arrival, Fences, Hidden Figures, Lion, Moonlight
This is completely as expected, with five Best Picture nominees in the running. I’m relieved that the ugly “Nocturnal Animals” didn’t show up here, and these are some pretty strong screenplays. No more comments for now – my list might look different, but I’m happy with this one.
My current bet to win: It’s going to be Moonlight.
