    I’m delighted that you recognized Neighbors, but I am horrified to learn that Rose Byrne was snubbed for Best Actress. She was the MVP of that film! What a performance! (Also, did you have Dave Franco in consideration for a Supporting Actor nod?)

    Kudos on nominating Tina Fey for Supporting Actress for Muppets Most Wanted… she was perfection in that.

    Love the nominations. Hopefully some of these (Budapest, Lego, Dragon, and X-Men) make it to the end of the year.
    What category were you considering Tony Revolori as Zero in The Grand Budapest Hotel in? Was he co-lead or supporting?

    I would personally consider Revolori as Supporting, because it was really M. Gustave H.’s story. But yeah, thanks a bunch!

    Now that you mention it, yeah it was pretty dumb of me to exclude Rose from the list. Franco was not in consideration. And yeah, I loved Tina Fey in Muppets Most Wanted. Thanks!

    I love your wide sweep  of genres in your noms lists. No esoteric choices here. Wonderful.

    It’ll be interesting seeing what your list will look like by the end. I’m guessing you wont be Gold-Globing it. Think you may include a FLF here or there (question mark)

    Thanks! And, yeah, while I do have an alternative version of my awards that has different categories for Drama and Comedy, I will put just the regular version on GoldDerby when time comes, and it will include Foreign Language Film of course.

    Ralph Fiennes’ Gustave is still the best performance of the year, in my estimation. Tilda tho. 🙁

    I love the citation of both HTTYD and LEGO! Definitely both among the best American film offerings of the year so far imo.

    Of all the choices we have from the Xmen cast it’s interesting that you’ve chosen Patrick Stewart. I liked him too. He isnt Kristen Stewart’s dad, is he??

     

     

     

    Lol.

    What do you think? Do you honestly think that Patrick Stewart, an incredible actor, who has done dramas and comedies, film and television, superhero films and silly animation, would be the father of Kristen Stewart, who has the facial expression talent of Darth Vader? Answer: No.
