“Manchester by the Sea”


I didn’t do too bad. La La Land was obviously my favorite and it should have won Best Picture. I’m still holding out hope that a musical will win Best Picture again. A musical hasn’t won that award since Chicago.

    Not great as I was predicting that LA La Land would get most of the votes. I must say though some of the other movies were great also.
