I also voted it was a bad year.

For Picture, it would be one of my 6-10. For Actor it was either Garfield, Adam Driver for Paterson or Viggo Mortensen for Captain Fantastic. Maybe Chris Pine for Hell or High Water. I know some who think Gibson will be nominated for Best Director, but I don't think the Academy in good conscience is going to accept him back in ever again.

And now that I've seen Hidden Figures, I'm taking out Hacksaw Ridge as a potential Best Picture nominee.

Interestig the you have Ford in for director but not the film in for picture. Also, you look to have one too many original scripts and one too few supporting actors.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.
