2017 Academy Awards: My Winners

On January 24th, Oscar Nominees and Nominations have been announced! Like I did last year, I wanted to say my opinion on who should win (because, you know, I'm such an expert!) basing my picks on personal feelings AND also on who's most likely to win...

Last year, I scored 3 out of 8 (Best Director, Best Actress in a Leading Role and Best Animated Movies), but this year is even harder to choose since there are a lot of amazing movies and talented actors/actresses in the run!  

So let's begin!

Best Picture:

Hacksaw Ridge
Hell or High Water
Hidden Figures
La La Land
Manchester by the Sea

Best Director:
Barry Jenkins - Moonlight
Kenneth Lonergan - Manchester by the Sea
Denis Villeneuve - Arrival
Damien Chazelle - La La Land ()
Mel Gibson - Hacksaw Ridge

Best Actor in a Leading Role:
Casey Affleck - Manchester by the Sea
Andrew Garfield - Hacksaw Ridge
Ryan Gosling - La La Land
Viggo Mortensen - Captain Fantastic
Denzel Washington - Fences

Best Actress in a Leading Role:
Isabelle Huppert - Elle
Ruth Negga - Loving
Natalie Portman - Jackie
Emma Stone - La La Land
Meryl Streep - Florence Foster Jenkins

Best Actor in a Supporting Role:

Mahershala Ali - Moonlight
Jeff Bridges - Hell or High Water
Lucas Hedges - Manchester by the Sea
Dev Patel - Lion 
Michael Shannon - Nocturnal Animals

Best Actress in a Supporting Role:
Viola Davis - Fences
Naomie Harris - Moonlight
Nicole Kidman - Lion
Octavia Spencer - Hidden Figures
Michelle Williams - Manchester by the Sea

Best Animated Feature:
Kubo and the Two Strings
My Life as a Zucchini
The Red Turtle

Best Foreign Language Film:
A Man Called Ove - En man som heter Ove (Sweden)
Land of Mine - Under sandet (Denmark)
The Salesman - Forushande (Iran)
Tanna (Australia)
Toni Erdmann 

I choose "Land of Mine" as Best Foreign Language Film because I saw it last year and, beside being an amazing movie, is so heart moving and well done in every single aspect that it can't simply not win!  
Same thing for Viggo Mortensen, who DESERVES the Oscar for his "Captain Fantastic", a cult movie!

I'm curious....who are your winners?
