    Tomorrow: Best foreign-language film, best animated film, best documentary!

    You should leave these until the end because you still haven’t seen that many.

    I will take this to heart.
    It’s tough because I don’t see much changing in between now and the Oscars.

    Foreign films I will eventually see: Foxtrot, In the Fade, The Insult, Graduation

    Only Graduation is available to watch, and it looks like the others will not be for awhile.

    Docs I will eventually see: Faces Places, Jane
    Once again, as far as I know, not available until after the Oscars.

    Animated film I will eventually see: Ferdinand

    I will delay foreign language and doc until closer to the Oscar ceremony, but oftentimes I have to update these categories a few weeks after the Oscars with my final winners. The most extreme example of this is About Elly winning my 2009 FL category 6 years after the fact due to its release date.

    Most of the time, I will add a nom or two. Rarely, the winner for one of these categories will change. Still, I will post an update once I see *everything*.

    With that said, there is one category I feel very safe announcing.

    Best Animated Film:
    Not seen: Ferdinand
    Watched, but not good enough: The Lego Batman Movie, Cars 3, Loving Vincent, The Boss Baby
    Last Year’s Winner: Zootopia

    And the nominees are…

    Coco
    The Breadwinner

    And the winner is…

    Coco!

    Tomorrow: Best original screenplay and best adapted screenplay

    @sxecanadianfansxe Watch Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie! It brought to life the nostalgia of the captain underpants books I read as a little boy, while impressively updating the storyline and characters for an adult audience to enjoy as well. I saw it 3 freaking times in theaters, so please do yourself a favor and seek it out if you haven’t already. It is at Redbox last I checked so you can easily rent it and hopefully love it as I so deeply did.

    You got Lead Actress exactly right, so let’s hope the Oscars follow suit.

    Also, while I was hoping for/predicting you would award Rockwell, I must admit that Hedlund is still a refreshingly out-of-the-box and genuinely deserving choice. Very subtle, vulnerable, and memorable acting.

    Loving these awards, but no Sally Hawkins in Actress is unacceptable.

    Loving these awards, but no Sally Hawkins in Actress is unacceptable.

    I really struggled with that fifth slot for actress, and went with Emma Stone. Hawkins is excellent, but it’s a tough category, and I didn’t respond to the film.

    Granted, she is still vulnerable as there is one more actress contender I haven’t seen (Diane Kruger).

    Hedlund v. Rockwell was the toughest call of the year for me. Well… other than the tie. I may speed these up with the final acting race tomorrow, and best picture later that night.

    But for now…

    Best Supporting Actress:
    Last year’s winner: Viola Davis (Fences)

    And the nominees are…

    Ana de Armas (Blade Runner 2049)
    Hong Chau (Downsizing)
    Allison Janney (I, Tonya)
    Laurie Metcalf (Lady Bird)
    Tilda Swinton (Okja)

    And the winner is…

    Laurie Metcalf!

    And…

    Hong Chau!

    The only other tie in this category was in 2006 when Adriana Barraza and Rinko Kikuchi won this award for Babel.

    Tomorrow: Best Lead Actor!

    Thank you for following these awards! It is always a big undertaking, and I put a lot of work into it. Much love to all of the feedback (whether you agree or vehemently disagree).

    The only time I have matched BP with the Oscars since 2000 was in 2003 for The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. I was positive I was going to match last year, but it wasn’t to be. I’m getting a feeling that we may go unmatched once again, but that’s what makes these years so exciting. Enjoy the Oscars everyone! And to Laurie Metcalf and others, you may not win the Oscar, but you won my award! 🙂

    I am so jealous of these awards… The perfect timing of the final category’s winner being revealed the night before the Oscars, to the GIFs, to even many of the actual winners themselves such as Three Billboards for Ensemble, McDormand, and Picture, to Blade Runner in general, to Molly’s Game winning Adapted Screenplay, which is my personal favorite Aaron Sorkin script since The Social Network. CONGRATULATIONS!
