DarkeningHumour's ballot likely would've earned Your Name. a few extra nominations.

Awesome work as always pixote. Disappointed Kristen Stewart missed... also that Paterson missed editing and screenplay, though at least Driver got in.

Animated is a rather strong lineup, very happy Courgette/Zucchini made it.

Surprise is a collection of films I found disappointing so far - or haven't seeen in the case of Brigsby Bear - which I find amusing.

Overlooked look fascinating as always.

Valerian missing visual effects is plain wrong.

Cassel was kinda close, who else had him on their ballot ? I thought it might have been a wasted vote on my part.

een none of the documentarie, not ure I'll find the time to catch up on them.

Frantz would have had a better shot at an Overlooked nomination were I not so overly wary of stacking the category with my preferred choices.

Baahubali was filmed in Telugu and Tamil, so I think the Hindi and Malayalam versions are dubs.

also important, do we need to see the quel to get it?

The film is on Youtube for free in the original Telugu. Also: the first film is absolutely necessary. It's basically one six-hour movie. It's my #1 of the year.

You won't be saying that when you watch it. It is tremendously entertaining.
