Only goliath makes sense there
C'mon man. You must be kiding.

I just finished watching the Crown yesterday and that lady easily takes the best actress.

I was also hoping John Lithgow would win.

La La Land is perhaps the most obvious winner here since it is so 'oscar themed'. Not sure how to put it. It's acted in such a way you know they are definitely chasing for an oscar the way those slave movies usually are.

I am very disappointed Hell or High water did not win though since for me it is my best movie of the year.

The best actor section is the toughest one. I was hoping Riz Ahmed from the Night Of would take it. The way he embodies the transformation from a nerd to a 'gangster' is something I have never seen in a movie or series before.

I am very happy for Atlanta though and especially on the comedy category it comes of as a very clear winner. The first season of Blackish would have been able to contend but definitely not the later ones. Goliath was a very nice series but the director sought of tied his arms since one is left wondering what would a season 2 entail.

For the Oscars however I think Mel Gibson will snatch the best directorship if he is put up against the same opponents. Americans love a good war movie

I AM THE ONE WHO KNOCKS!
Haha.. Byran Cranston was good. It's just that he wasn't a nerd. Just a smart good person who went into crime.


If you watch a Night Of you will understand. Innocent Pakistani kid gets falsely accused of murder and rape along with a litany of other offences. Goes to jail as his case is being tried. While there you have to learn to fed for yourself lest you get killed. Remember that rapists are generally hated in prison.

The Night Of is definitely not on Breaking Bad level but is surely the best detective series I enjoyed in 2016.

On that note, you should definitely watch All the Way by Bryan. If you love House of cards you will love that movie.

I just downloaded the first season. Let me watch.

By the way Goliath was really good although I could seem to reconcile the main character from the guy in Fargo. They are so similar yet so different.
