NOMINEES

  • Damien ChazelleLa La Land
  • Mel Gibson – Hacksaw Ridge
  • Barry JenkinsMoonlight
  • Kenneth Lonergan – Manchester by the Sea
  • Denis VilleneuveArrival

WHO WILL WIN

Dominic Chazelle  – La La Land

Big energy. Big music. Big moments. Oscar nominated lead performances. Hollywood Wunderkind.

La La Land is a pretty amazing achievement for a director helming only his second major release. That the film is a love letter to Hollwood won’t hurt Dominic Chazelle’s chances of winning Oscar. Nor will the amazing work he does here. His work was the most inventive of all five nominees. He ought to win it.

WHO I WOULD LIKE TO SEE WIN

Dominic Chazelle  – La La Land

La La Land is a very special movie and, perhaps with the exception of Hell or High Water, the movie I most enjoyed this year. Chazelle is a director whose works seem like they will always be worth watching.
