And the answer would seem that yes, La La Land is still the film to beat, which I’m okay with considering it’s an amazing movie. Most of the big awards went to people you would expect to win with perhaps the biggest surprises belong to Dev Patel’s win for Best Supporting Actor in Lion. It’s turning out to be one of the more predictable award seasons so far, but thankfully also one of the more diverse with a lot of love going not only to actors of different races, but also a wide variety of different genres.

I love that Kubo and the Two Strings continues its critical success even if the film didn’t do as well at the box office. There is the British film categories which I have little knowledge about, so can’t comment on any of the films here.

Is there any film that can stop the La La Land award train from wining at this year’s Oscars? Who do you think should’ve won the different awards?
