So, it’s the start of a new year and that means we are fully into the award season of the movie world where the industry and those most gullible to hype will determine which films were the best of the preceding year. Or as is the case for South Africa, which upcoming films should we end up watching in the next few months (at least for many of these movies).

So, anything take you by surprise? For me, Moonlight winning for best dramatic film was a bit of a surprise with Manchester By the Sea getting the most critical noise in this category. Also, Issabelle Hupper for her performance in Elle (a French movie) is also a bit of a surprise. La La Land seems to be continuing with its Award hype and looks like it is going to be a truly outstanding film. Having not seen any of these movies yet, I can’t speak for myself.

On the TV front, The Crown took drama series category against some incredible competition. I haven’t started watching it yet, but based on the competition it beat out, it should be really good and something to start scheduling on Netflix. A big surprise was the love for Atlanta and star Donald Glover in the comedy or musical category. I actually haven’t heard good things about this series, but it seems to have the love of the foreign press association at least.

While the Golden Globes are not the most accurate prediction of who will be successful at the Oscar awards (whose nominations come out later this week), it does at least allow us to know what films and performances are worth looking out for.

A man of many talents, but no sense how to use them. I could be discovering the cure for aids or finding ways to achieve world peace, but I'd rather be watching movies and writing here instead.

  • DragonSpirit009

    For me I only like to know the animation film winner and I have to say I was torn between the nominations but I think Zootopia was a nice choice for the win.

  • Hammersteyn

    La la Land?

  • VampyreSquirrel

    I’ve only seen two things on this list… those are Zootopia and Deadpool.

    I need to get out more… xD

    • Magoo

      Don’t worry there are barely 10 things on this list. 😛

  • Guild

    I really have no interest in seeing La La Land

    • After seeing what director Damien Chazelle could do with just a drumming movie n Whiplash, I will watch every damn thing he makes
