    What potential Oscar contenders that haven’t already been screened yet to critics and audiences do you secretly want to see become strong contenders?

    For me, here’s a few:

    A United Kingdom: I think Amma Asante who did Belle with Gugu Mbatha-Raw is a very promising director and I would love to see her try to accomplish what Ava DuVernay couldn’t and be the first black woman to be nominated for Best Director.

    The Girl On The Train: Just so I can hear the words “Academy Award nominee Emily Blunt”

    Silence: Always love a good Marty movie.

    How about you guys?

    I would be quite thrilled to hear Best Supporting Actress nomination to Tyne Daly for Hello My Name is Doris. I think Daly is one of our greatest living actresses.

    Nick Offerman landing an Oscar nom for The Founder would be fantastic.

    Oh, that would be so awesome. Ron Swanson an Oscar nominee?! That’d be sweet!

    Despite feeling more agnostic about Whiplash than most others, I’m actually really rooting for Damian Chazelle to knock it out of the park with La La Land. I don’t doubt that he has the talent and energy to pull off a project like this, and it’s been ages since we’ve had a really great original film musical. These kinds of projects can go either way, therefore I don’t want to get my hopes up too high, but the composer is Justin Hurwitz, who I believe contributed some original music to Whiplash, so it sounds promising.

    Also I want Silence to be one of Scorsese’s masterpieces. I will not settle for mere spectacular efficiency here!

    I really want Love and Friendship and Everybody Wants Some Screenplay nominations. Also would love if Isabelle Huppert managed to get an Oscar nomination this year and if Brazil’s Aquarius got a Foreign Language Film nomination. As for the rest, let me watch the movies first.

    This year has a chance to run away with the musicals. Sing Street and La La Land could both do very well witht the right momentum, especially with Sing Street’s acclaim. I want them both to take home trophies.

    Isabelle Huppert, the one and only. Sonia Braga, Kirsten Dunst, everything Silence related, Moonlight (specially Barry Jenkins and Naomie Harris) and Casey Affleck.

    In answer to the topic thread:

    Three words: La La Land
    Three reasons: Chazelle. Stone. Gosling.

    Silence, The Birth Of A Nation, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, The Girl On A Train, Fences, Manchester By The Sea and La La Land all have a big shot I think

    Fences, a third Oscar for Denzel, his second for Best Actor, and Viola Davis expanding the Best Actress category being the second nonwhite actress to win the category.

    Would not mind a Best Director nomination for Paul Verhoeven.
