    My number one vote would go to Trevante Rhodes for Moonlight. He was the best part of the film, in my opinion, and leagues better than Ali (I thought Ali was good, but definitely one of the weaker male performers).

    I just saw Other People and it was amazing. How did it not get a single nomination? It should have swept. Out of the emotional drama films about characters dealing with grief, Other People was much better than Manchester by the Sea. Plemmons should be a contender to WIN! Same with Shannon, screenplay, picture and editing.

    2 movies that I thought were decent but had fantastic performances were A Bigger Splash and Maggie’s Plan. They didn’t need Oscar attention, but Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Ethan Hawke, and Greta Gerwig gave great performances in these little movies. Gerwig in particular has quite a career ahead of her.

    Amy Adams: Nocturnal Animals (Supporting Actress)

    Coming from someone who wasn’t really an Amy Adams fan, she killed it and should have been nominated. People were saying her ‘reality’ part of the film was the worst aspect but imo the scenes with her mum (Laura Linney could have been a nominee in supporting in a weaker year just off of that one scene) and the last shot at the dinner table of her eyes were the best moments of the film along with the obvious kidnap scene.

    I just watched Aquarius, and my gosh, Sonia Braga was BRILLIANT! How did she not get a nomination? How did this film completely fly under the radar? That is a sin! This movie should have gotten best actress, foreign film, director, editing, and cinematography. My gosh, the cinematography!

    I wish there could be more than one “overdue veteran foreign actress” slot in the Lead actress category. Braga was STUNNING!
