    Check out the high-brow and more esoteric Sight & Sound's top 30 list, which will never be used as an Oscar predictor, but has been used to introduce film buffs to movies that awards and box offices tend to ignore. This list was complied by 163 international film critics and film curators and each was asked to provide their top five films of the year. The results were:

    http://www.awardsdaily.com/2016/12/02/sight-sound-top-30/

    For comparison's sake, here's Sight & Sound's top movies of 2015 list:

    http://www.bfi.org.uk/best-films-2015

    And compare that with the Academy Awards nominees and winners that same year:

    If you ask me, I like having a separate thread to discuss the awards- nominations, winners, etc.

    The other thread has everything, from new releases to ancient movies. A lot to sort through, particularly when there are many awards listings, the other movies kind of get ignored. However, it's up to the admins and the OP what to do.

    The industry awards have always been the best predictors of the Academy Awards because not only do they have a large membership like the Academy, but their memberships overlap. That said the critics' awards have their own value. Especially ones from New York, LA, and the National Society of Film Critics (not to be confused with the Critics' Choice Awards which are the Broadcast Film Critics Association). Membership to the NSFC is more difficult to get into.

    Golden Globes nominations will be announced tomorrow morning, by Anna Kendrick, Don Cheadle.

    Critics Choice awards (announced tonight):

    La La Land is winning a lot. I don't find the idea all that new, but I will see the movie to see what's so great about it. I am more interested in Manchester by the sea, Fences, and a few others.

    Golden Globe nominations:

    http://www.nbcnews.com/pop-culture/awards/golden-globes-la-la-land-leads-pack-2017-nominees-n694826

    The only surprises for me were- no BP nom for Arrival (it's not that I liked that movie but it was weird enough to get a nomination), and 'Lion' for best motion picture drama. I had never heard of this but I saw the trailer yesterday and I am very interested in seeing it. Hell and High water is fully deserving, and it's one of the few nominated movies I have seen so far.

    Looks like La La Land is going to clean up at GG and the Oscars.

    My pet peeve: There are awards for foreign language films, and I know there are lots of other foreign language films that we don't even hear about. So I don't want to see a foreign language film nominated in the regular spot, and someone from the foreign films nominated for other major awards. This is particularly true when a movie gets nominated in both foreign language And English speaking movies. Ample- Life us beautiful and this time Elle (likely to happen at the Oscars)

    I do like foreign language films, often more so than the Hollywood movies (may be that's why I am ticked off by the publicity La La Land is getting), but I don't want them taking away a nomination spot from an English speaking movie.

    So glad that Hailee Steinfeld received a nomination for Edge of Seventeen. She has no chance of being nominated for any other awards, but I love to see a well-thought out and smartly written/acted film like this getting recognized in some way. I also loved Steinfeld in True Grit and was waiting for her to have another big break.

    I think the Oscars will have some diversity too. Moonlight, Denzel Washington, Viola Davis are all getting good reviews and publicity.

    ITA. Hailee Steinfeld was great in this film. But, I wish the film had received more nominations. I haven't seen most of the nominated movies. But I did see Florence Foster Jenkins. IMO, Edge of Seventeen was better.

    I don't watch TV, so I don't know most of these shows.

    In the movies, there are many nominations and possible wins for African American actors/actresses this year.

    I saw the trailer of 'Lion' and I am surprised that Dev Patel has a Supporting actor nomination (SAG and GG). He seemed like a lead character in the movie. If he is not the lead, who is?

    La La Land didn't get the 'Cast/Ensemble' nomination. Could it be that there are just two main characters, so they are not really an ensemble, while other movies had multiple characters?

    Some disappointments, as usual, but with just 5 spots in each category that's not surprising.

    "La La Land" is really just the two characters. I liked it (screened it two months ago) but some of the L.A. references might go over a non-native's head.

    I suppose there will be tough competition this season. I hope Ruth Negga and Joel Edgerton will win the Globes for their work in Loving. However, since neither were nominated for SAG acting awards, their chances may not be great. Loving is also not up for Best Picture at the Globes.

    Natalie Portman is perfectly awful in Jackie! Particularly with that ridiculous put-on accent. Why isn't Portman nominated for her better work in A Tale of Love and Darkness, which she also directed? :duh:

    I think those are the safest bets. I think it could go either way between Manchester by the Sea and Moonlight. I don't foresee Moonlight winning Best Picture at the Oscars though. It's just not the type of movie that tends to get awarded the big prize.

    It will be close between Affleck and Washington at the Golden Globes. Though I picked Affleck here, Washington could win the Globes but I don't see him winning his third Oscar yet. So the Oscar could go to Affleck and the Globe to Washington.

    The National Society of Film Critics, the one I usually look forward to, announced their winners last week:

    https://nationalsocietyoffilmcritics.com/

    To get a sense of that group's taste, here is a list of their past Best Picture winners:

    Also, BAFTA announced their nominees:

    http://www.awardsdaily.com/2017/01/09/bafta-nominations-2016/

    It's official, BAFTA does not like Denzel Washington. He's never been nominated for this award. Emily Blunt's Best Actress chances look a bit stronger now that she got both a SAG and a BAFTA nomination. Isabelle Huppert's Elle wasn't eligible, but her Things to Come was and she was snubbed.

    BAFTA seemed to really like Palme d'Or winner I, Daniel Blake and Nocturnal Animals and Arrival.

    I keep forgetting that BAFTA's eligibility window for foreign films is different from the Academy Awards.
    That's why we're seeing last years Oscar winner Son of Saul up against Toni Erdmann (Dheepan and Mustang were both also from 2015).

    Hugh Grant was quite deserving of his nomination for FFJ -- and I say that as one who's never been a Hugh Grant fan -- but I'd like to see Simon Helberg get a nomination or two as well for that movie. That was a great comic performance -- his facial expressions were like nothing I've ever seen. :lol:
