@ billie duder: I dunno mang, it's been a slow one. There was very little worth seeing all year, none of it Oscar fodder. Things have picked up a bit in the last few months, as expected, but I'm not sure my attendance choices match up with the Oscar train. I saw Arrival, Hacksaw Ridge and La La Land (not just those, but anything else isn't Oscar bait). The first was quite good, the second was entertaining but heavy-handed, and the third turned me into a dickqueer.
