Honestly, if I ever make one of these, Suicide Squad would easily take up at least 3 spots on the worst dialogue list.
Goodbye!

Thanks. It was tough finalizing the editing category, though. As incredible as Hacksaw's battle sequences were I think its opening half might have done it in when comparing it to the other films. Hopefully nominating it in Director and Adapted Screenplay makes up for it.

Haha, just having a bit of fun, I think you chose an excellent slate overall! Still really have to see Silence though.

I definitely recommend Silence. It's not the easiest watch but I think you'd appreciate its complexity. I believe it comes to DVD in two weeks or so.

Altered a couple nominations. My awards will be next Sunday at latest. Hoping to catch Nocturnal Animals and possibly 20th Century Women (at minimum) while also rewatching Fences before I do.

These awards will be tomorrow. Haven't set a specific time but I'll probably just announce winners throughout the day.

Edit: Going to try to squeeze in one last movie before this happens.

Yeah, I was hoping to get it done earlier but academic obligations got in the way.

Let's start with Best and Worst Editing, since I'm practically improvising.

The nominees for Best Editing:
Arrival
Hell or High Water
Moonlight
Silence
The Witch

...and the Kashmir award goes to... Arrival! Out of all the 2016 films I saw none depended as heavily on skillful editing as Arrival. The use of vignettes moves the plot forward intelligently and allows the viewer to figure out the twist in a clever yet not overly complex fashion. Not only that, but it was ab utterly well paced film with no letup - in fact, I personally find the complaints about the first act's pacing to be relatively strange.

Honorable Mention: Silence, for managing to take a 3 hour 20 minute film and cut it forty minutes without feeling disjointed or long winded.


Worst Editing:
Allegiant
Batman v Superman
Gods of Egypt
The Legend of Tarzan
Suicide Squad

...and the winner is... Suicide Squad! Hopefully Warner (and every other movie studio) learns not to rely on a trailer editing company for the final cut of their film.

Honorable Mention: Batman v Superman, for feeling far longer than it is, and for its messy final act.

Next up: Best Animated Film and Best Foreign Film.

The nominees for Best Animated Film:
Finding Dory
Kubo and the Two Strings
The Little Prince
Moana
Zootopia

...and the winner is Kubo and the Two Strings! I will admit that the film isn't perfect - its adherence to convention and admittedly rushed final act hurt the film at times, but its thoughtful meditations on memory, suitably epic scope, and breathtaking animation allowed it to surpass its competition. Sorry, Zootopia, but you don't deserve that Oscar.

Honorable Mention: The Little Prince


Best Foreign Film:
A Man Called Ove
The Salesman
Train to Busan

...and the winner is... The Salesman! I enjoyed all three of these fine films but Asghar Farhadi's latest continues to establish why he's become so revered as a director, with his uncanny ability to create tension out of idle conversation and his synergy with his cast amount to undeniably compelling drama.

Honorable Mention: Train to Busan

Next up: Best and Worst Supporting Actor.

Nominees for Best Supporting Actor:
John Goodman (10 Cloverfield Lane)
Jeff Bridges (Hell or High Water)
Sunny Pawar (Lion)
Mahershala Ali (Moonlight)
Ralph Ineson (The Witch)

...and the winner, after much consideration, is John Goodman for 10 Cloverfield Lane. All the performances here were of utmost quality but Goodman comes on top due to his stark departure from his normal roles. He is simply intimidating, but also surprisingly sensible at times despite his paranoia, and at times we end up almost feeling sorry for his unstable character.

Honorable Mention: Jeff Bridges for Hell or High Water

Nominees for Worst Supporting Actor:
Jeff Daniels (Allegiant)
Jesse Eisenberg (Batman v Superman)
Chris Hemsworth (Ghostbusters)
Gerard Butler (Gods of Egypt)
Jared Leto (Suicide Squad)

..and the winner is Jesse Eisenberg for Batman v Superman, for a performance that reeks of miscasting (classic Snyder!). Of these performances, Eisenberg thoroughly annoyed me the most (though Gerard Butler's hilarious performance is the only one I like of these five). His attempt at replicating his Café Society performance backfired severely here.

Honorable Mention: Jared Leto for Suicide Squad. Luckily his screentime was mercifully cut short.

Eisenberg was the best part of BvS for me.  He pushed the film into hilariously bad territory.

He was terrible but ah he was the only aspect of it that wasn't crushingly boring.

The nominees for Best VIsual Effects:
Doctor Strange
Deepwater Horizon
Hacksaw Ridge
The Jungle Book
Rogue One

...and the winner is The Jungle Book. I tried to evaluate the effects for these respective films as a whole, and of them all I felt that Jon Favreau's Jungle Book adaptation held up the most visually, thanks to the most convincing CG animals this side of Life of Pi and the Planet of the Apes reboot series. It was quite a sight to behold in theaters - fitting for one of the only Disney remakes whose existence actually makes sense for reasons aside from the beckon of money.

Honorable Mention: Hacksaw Ridge for its pitch perfect practical effects.


The nominees for Worst Visual Effects:
Allegiant
Batman v Superman
Gods of Egypt
The Legend of Tarzan
Nine Lives

...and the winner is... Nine Lives! This feature about a talking animal (well, sort of), unlike the previous winner, does not look like the money spent on it was used well, with greenscreen effects that would look dated if they were in Mike Myers' Cat in the Hat movie as well as very poor models for when the cat embarks on "hilarious antics". It adds to this bizarre movie's charm, but I had to be objective here.

Honorable Mention: Allegiant

We'll have to agree to disagree about the latter segment. I just found him to be obnoxious, and this performance would appear out of place in all but the most low-brow comedies in my eyes.

Eisenberg was the best part of BvS for me.  He pushed the film into hilariously bad territory.
Ben Affleck was the best part for me, as he seemed truly committed to his role. Plus he has the two only good scenes in the film.
