With the year-end awards season now under way, here’s a guide to the best of 2017 so far.
Best Comedy Album: The Best Comedy album is one of the most subjective things to judge in 2017.
Some people have a hard time picking the best album from 2017, while others have a preference.
Regardless, this year’s nominees include the likes of the excellent The New Yorker, the sublime and heartbreaking The Night of, the charming and heartfelt I Am the Walrus, and the utterly brilliant and heartbreaking We Are Not Forgotten.
Best Documentary Feature: This is a difficult one to rate.
I know that it’s been a year of record-breaking documentaries, but I’m still waiting for a single winner, and there are so many that have already been announced.
The film that really stood out in 2017 was the Oscar-winning The Hunting Ground, which focused on the history of the 2016 presidential election.
There were also several well-reviewed documentaries that hit the Oscar radar, including The Color Purple, The Emoji Movie, and The Martian.
Best Feature Film: This was a bit of a mixed bag this year.
While the year saw a number of incredible films that I thought were worthy of awards consideration, there were a few that really didn’t stand out to me.
It was disappointing that the best film of the year, The Grand Budapest Hotel, did not make the cut.
The most surprising award for me was the Best Foreign Language Film category, which is always difficult to pick out because it’s so often filled with films that were made in a language other than English.
Best Actor in a Supporting Role in a Feature Film (Short Film): I think it’s a really tough category, especially in the feature film category, because we are often trying to make movies that appeal to a wide range of audiences.
So if you’re looking for a standout role in a feature film, I would strongly suggest looking to the 2017 awards.
That said, I think the best performances from this year in this category were from Ben Affleck in the emotionally wrenching film Spotlight and Josh Brolin in the haunting and powerful Inside Llewyn Davis.
Best Supporting Actor in an Animated Feature Film for an Animated Short Film: I can’t pick a favorite performance from the 2017 Oscars, but one of my favorite moments came from Ben Stiller in Inside LLEW Davis, which was one of three Oscar nominations for an animated short film this year, along with I Am The Walrus and I Am Not Forgotten, both of which were nominated for Best Animated Short Feature.
I think there was a real lack of emotion in the short, and it was one that I’m very proud of. 6.
Best Film Short Film (Motion Picture or Comedy): The best short films of 2017 were two-and-a-half-minute shorts that were filmed over a two-week period.
There’s no question that there were some great short films this year from the likes.
Here’s my list of the top five short films that stood out this year: The Grand Hotel, I Am Myself, The Hunting Home, Inside Llawry Davis, and I Know What You Did Last Summer.
Best Animated Feature (Motion or Comedy): It’s hard to pick one single short film to go with this year; this is the most diverse category of the awards, and that means there are a lot of films that aren’t really the sort of films you’re familiar with.
For this reason, I’m going to give you my personal pick of the best animated short films from 2017.
I Am I Am: The First Film is a very interesting story about an 18-year-old girl who, in a time of war, is sent to a boarding school in the middle of nowhere by her parents.
The filmmakers made some impressive, if sometimes awkward, choices with this film, from the way it was shot to the way the characters speak.
I am The Walruses, the film that won Best Animated Film for its visual design, which features a lot more detail and animation than most animated films this season.
Best Foreign Film (Animation): The only foreign film that stood apart from the rest of the list this year was a film called The Last Witch Hunter, which received an honorable mention for best animated feature.
I’m Not A Witch: The Last of the Old School, which focuses on the life and death of an Italian mafia boss, was also nominated for best foreign film, but the film itself was a little too dark and sad to me, and its depiction of the mafia is just too depressing to be considered.
Best Director (Motion Pictures): This is another tough category to choose from this one, and we all know that there are some very talented directors out there.
But for me, I can honestly say that I would recommend The Grand Tour over this category because it tells the story of the young girl who discovers she is a witch after being kidnapped from her
