My post is a snub. My biggest snubs usually come from music and original song category.

How this didn't get nominated for best song, I'LL NEVER KNOW.

That entire soundtrack should've gotten it. Mona Lisa, Equal Rights, Things In My Jeep...

If I had to rank em, I'd go...

Any of these four could win best picture IMO:

1) La La Land. I'm still shocked but how much I enjoyed it! I don't even like musicals, so if they can get people like me to like it, you know it's good!
2) Hell or High Water. Could almost be #1. Loved the performances by all involved, and I'm a little shocked that they didn't get more noms (like a best actor nom - WTF). Definitely the movie that kept me on the edge of my seat. Both leads should have been nominated over Vigo IMO.
3) Moonlight. Was great! Again, hard to rank these top four. Raw, gritty and beautiful at the same time.
4) Manchester by the Sea. Having young kids myself, it gave me all the "feels". Affleck's lack of emotion wins it for me.

5) Arrival. Great movie, but not best of the year. Amy Adams actually bugged me a little, maybe that's why she got snubbed :wink:
6) Lion. 1st half alone is probably my favourite movie of the year! 2nd half is where it fell apart a bit for me.
7) Hidden Figures. Really solid, but a bit boring. Taraji Henson was fantastic!
8) Fences. Hard to keep up with it, and didn't get into it like the others. Denzel is of course a force to reckoned with.

Haven't seen Hacksaw Ridge yet, but from what I've read, it wouldn't contend.

edit: no clue why my number eight is a sunglassed emoji.

A few official items of duty:

*It appears there is a tie-breaker (I didn't realize that). The Grand Prize Winner (1st pick of all the prizes) will be the winner chosen by runyourpools.com. In the event that two or more participants have the same number correct and the same answer for the tie-breaker. I'll draw between the them.

*We are currently at 73 participants. We are capped off at 100. I had to choose our tier 24 hours in advance and didn't think we'd go over 100 (it doesn't allow you to add more unfortunately). I don't foresee it being an issue, but I just wanted to give folks notice in case.

Watched my final Oscar movie last night Jackie, Portman was good in it but Emma Stone was better.

Also this was the first year that I watched all Best Pic Nominees so now I'll come in last

Thanks again RA :clap:
