It blows my mind that it has been a year since I posted my 2016 Academy Awards ballot. Here we are again in 2017 with a new list of movies and nominations. Every year Colton and I host an Academy Awards party, and this year it will be bigger than ever. So far, Colton and I have seen 7 out of the 9 nominated best pictures, but plan to see the last two (Fences and Moonlight) movies before the award show. Here are mine and Colton’s (in blue) picks for the “top 6” from what we have seen so far. Don’t forget to download your free 2017 Academy Awards ballot.
La La Land- This has been my favorite movie of the year. As much as I enjoy dramas, I love feel good musical movies too.
La La Land
LaLa Land- I still have to stick with my favorite
La La Land
Casey Affleck- This was the most difficult category because everyone is fantastic, however Casey broke my heart.
Emma Stone- I want her to win mostly because I want to be her. This isn’t a fair vote, because I haven’t seen most of the movies in this category.
Best supporting actor
Dev Patel- Dev was fantastic in Lion. I am pulling for you!
Best supporting actress
Michelle Williams- I understand Michelle wasn’t in Manchester By The Sea very long, but she is such an amazing actress that she shines in this role. She was also heart-breaking.
