My predictions: 3/5, picking “The Jungle Book” and “Rogue One” over “Deepwater Horizon” and “La La Land”
My ballot: Come back in February!
The nominees: Arrival, Deepwater Horizon, Hacksaw Ridge, La La Land, Sully
I’m surprised not to see “Rogue One” here and juggernaut “La La Land” in its place, joined by “Arrival” and “Hacksaw Ridge,” which did well in the technical races. “Deepwater Horizon” scored this and a bid for Best Visual Effects, and finally we have the lone nomination for one of the best films of the year – “Sully” – which totally deserved this bid and many others.
My current bet to win: I actually think it might be Sully.
