My predictions: 4/5, picking “Hell or High Water” over “Silence”
My ballot: Come back in February!
The nominees: Arrival, La La Land, Lion, Moonlight, Silence
This is a carbon copy of the ASC list, representing the one and only nomination for Martin Scorsese’s epic “Silence.” I don’t think this is where I would have recognized it, but I suppose it’s not a bad choice. I was really pulling for “Hell or High Water,” but so much for that. I’m completely on board with the other four nominees, which were all filmed wonderfully to create four of the best cinematic and visual experiences of the year.
My current bet to win: I feel like it could be Silence, but I’m probably crazy.
