Oscars 2017 this Sunday

21/02/2017

Like me and super excited for the Oscars this Sunday? 

Each year, I try to see as many of the Best Picture nominations by the time the show airs. 

This year, I have seen 5 of the 9. 

Arrival: Beautiful, stunning and definitely Amy Adams' best performance. 

La La Land: More whimsical than true musical. Ryan and Emma have undeniable chemistry. 

Hell or High Water: Ben Foster, Jeff Bridges and Chris Pine. Need I say more? 

Lion (based on the book A Long Way Home): Tear-jerking, but hopeful. Dev Patel has come a "long way" since Slumdog Millionaire

Hacksaw Ridge: Best war action I've seen since Saving Private Ryan. 

I have my pick so far, but I also know which way all the predictions are leaning. 

What was your favourite movie this year?
