Here’s What The 2017 Oscar Nominations Should Look Like

People like to believe in fairy story, Natalie Portman says in Jackie. I have a fairy story: Jackie get the Oscar nominations it deserves. The recent disappointment? No gesture from the Producers Guild of America, a reliable precursor for the Academy Awards top accolade.( Deadpool is on the PGAs list instead. Yikes .)

But theres still experience. Oscar voting is now underway, so maybe we can help to steer the ballot in the right direction. Academy members have until Friday to refer their picks. So please allow me to speak to the voters out there: Please, I beg of you, do whats right. Skip Hacksaw Ridge.

This is our final for-your-consideration request in 11 categories.


20th Century Women
American Honey
Hidden Figures
La La Land
Manchester by the Sea
The Witch

Im maxing out my Best Photo roster with a full 10 slots, knowing good and well that American Honey and The Witch do not align with the Academys experiences, 20 th Century Women has been painfully under-recognized throughout gives season, and Jackie may prove too arty and contentious .


Andrea Arnold, American Honey
Damien Chazelle, La La Land
Barry Jenkins, Moonlight
Pablo Larran, Jackie
Denis Villeneuve, Arrival

Anything to keep Mel Gibson at bay, really. Hell, Id rather receive Garry Marshall get a posthumous nomination for Mothers Day .

A2 4


Annette Bening, 20 th Century Women
Rebecca Hall, Christine
Isabelle Huppert, Elle
Ruth Negga, Loving
Natalie Portman, Jackie

This years Best Actress lineup is stacked. The award once seems to belong to Emma Stone. Shes amazing in La La Land, but its still unpleasant to toss aside the gravitas that so many other extending challengers exposed last year.Hovering just outside my shortlist are Amy Adams( Arrival ), who will probably get her sixth nomination, as well as Kate Beckinsale( Love& Friendship ), Anya Taylor-Joy( The Witch ), Hailee Steinfeld( The Edge of Seventeen) and Krisha Fairchild( Krisha ).


Adam Driver, Paterson
Joel Edgerton, Loving
Colin Farrell, The Lobster
Viggo Mortensen, Captain Fantastic
Daniel Radcliffe, Swiss Army Man

Apparently I promote my servicemen smooth and placid. Presumed favorite Casey Affleck is plenty good in Manchester by the Sea, but hes no Adam Driver. Hes not even a farting body!( Thats Daniel Radcliffe .)


Viola Davis, Fences
Greta Gerwig, 20 th Century Women
Naomie Harris, Moonlight
Molly Shannon, Other People
Michelle Williams, Manchester by the Sea

Theres no stopping showstopper Viola Davis, though Id be just as happy to see Molly Shannon turn up for her delicate cultivate as a mom resisting to cancer .

A2 4


Mahershala Ali, Moonlight
Lucas Hedges, Manchester by the Sea
Shia LaBeouf, American Honey
Trevante Rhodes, Moonlight
Issei Ogata, Silence

Mahershala Ali had won almost every precursor accolade before his most recent Golden Globe loss. Hopefully that wont stifle his impetu. It would be nice to recognize other Moonlight virtuosoes too, peculiarly Trevante Rhodes, whose subtlety betters with each viewing.


I Am Not Your Negro
O.J .: Made in America

It tones unfair to oppose a 7.5 -hour behemoth like O.J .: Made in America against the rest of these. They are all tours de force.


Efthimis Filippou and Yorgos Lanthimos, The Lobster
Kelly Fremon Craig, The Edge of Seventeen
Kenneth Lonergan, Manchester by the Sea
Mike Mills, 20 th Century Women
Noah Oppenheim, Jackie

Hang tight, I have to be earnest for a minute. The width on this list of screenplays is astonishing. Married with the accommodated jobs below, its amazing to think we got of all these layered legends in the same calendar year.Im having fits about nixing Ira Sachs and Mauricio Zacharias Little Men script .

Roadside Attractions


Park Chan-wook and Chung Seo-kyung, The Handmaiden
Eric Heisserer, Arrival
Barry Jenkins, Moonlight
Jeff Nichols, Loving
Whit Stillman, Love& Friendship

I detest to slashed Hidden People, which has a neat shot at a nomination unless the Academy opts for goddamn Deadpool, which seems increasingly likely .


Nicholas Britell, Moonlight
Andy Hull and Robert McDowell, Swiss Army Man
Justin Hurwitz, La La Land
Mark Korven, The Witch
Mica Levi, Jackie

I will drink on Mica Levis behalf when she is snubbed .

A2 4


Audition( The Fools Who Dream ), from La La Land
Drive It Like You Plagiarize It, from Sing Street
How Far Ill Go, from Moana
Im Still Now, from Miss Sharon Jones!
Montage, from Swiss Army Man

Justin Timberlake will get a nomination for that Trolls earworm manufactured in a pop lab. Please move the belief stop .


Drew Daniels, Krisha
Stphane Fontaine, Jackie
James Laxton, Moonlight
Linus Sandgren, La La Land
Bradford Young, Arrival

Its difficult to argue against the technical prowes of La La Land, which takes cues from Singin in the Rain and The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, but I visualize the run that went into Moonlight and Arrival was more novel .
