Is there a Top 10 of 2016 thread somewhere?

I'm pretty sure I just saw a Best Picture campaign ad for Rogue One.

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

I remember at 12 years old I considered the Academy hacks because they didn't nominate the original Star Wars for best picture.

My opinion hasn't really changed.

I would criticise them for giving it to Rocky but I have not actually seen it. So I will just assume it's terrible and inferior and scoff at their mainstream pandering.

They did nominate Star Wars for Best Picture. Also Director, Supporting Actor and Original Screenplay, along with a host of technical categories. It won six of the ten Oscars it was nominated for. Annie Hall won Best Picture that year.
