Filmspots 2017: Best Picture, Director and Screenplay
« Reply #1 on: February 14, 2017, 01:34:00 PM »
Best Picture, Director, and Screenplay

Please post the films/directors/screenplays you're considering (and you would like your fellow filmspotter to consider) for the 2017 Filmspots here and check this list before nominating. 

Any relevant questions whose answers may benefit everyone will also be added to this post, such as:

As outlined in the FAQ, films are eligible up to a three-year period, starting with their first theatrical release, but with five limiting factors. Films are no longer eligible in subsequent years after any of the following occur:

1) The film gains a wide theatrical release in the US (playing simultaneously on more than 100 or so screens).

2) The film debuts on DVD in the US.

3) The film earns a Filmspot nomination.

4) The film is a made-for-tv film and airs on US television.

5) The film's US rights are exclusively owned by a streaming service (such as Netflix) and the film premieres on that service.

(See here for the origin of these guidelines.)
