Oscar Nominations 2017

They’ve finally been announced! We now know the full list (below) of the films competing for this year’s Academy Awards, and while most were to be expected, there are a few nice little surprises in there.

It’s really nice to see ‘Arrival’ getting so many nominations, it’s a fantastic film and has been well remembered by the Academy. Also I’m very happy ‘Passengers’ has gotten a couple of nominations, it really is a beautifully created sci-fi so the nominations for production design and score are well deserved.

I would have really been thrilled if ‘Jim: The James Foley Story’ had managed a nomination for Best Documentary Feature, though somehow it only managed ‘Best Song’. Also I’m a little surprised to see that ‘Suicide Squad’ got a nomination, true the make up is great but the film itself is such a mess.
