Congratulations to all of this year's nominees. What an exciting year! As expected, La La Land (my #1 movie of 2016) and Moonlight are the biggest nominees and that's fine with me - they're two of the best movies of the year. I'm also very happy for Kubo and the Two Strings and Viggo Mortensen from Captain Fantastic, since I love both of these movies. I am very, very surprised that Amy Adams did not get a nomination for Arrival, she really deserved it. I'm also surprised to see Michael Shannon nominated, but all the better. I'm intrigued to see Lion and Hacksaw Ridge getting so many noms, but they are both great films so that does make sense in the end. And sadly, no Deadpool anywhere. I'm very happy with these picks this year, but I'm sure there will be plenty of discussion/complaints about them as always. What do you think of these noms?
