Oscars Sunday 2017: The Best Pictures

Friends, we have made it to Oscar Sunday – the Super Bowl of the Berglund household and the event we love and love to hate and hate to love. We will be rooting for our favorites and will inevitably be crushed by the choices of the Academy, but it will be a fun ride no matter what. Get ready for Jimmy Kimmel’s dry humor, overpriced dresses, awkward interviews, anti-Trump acceptance speeches (yaaaas!), and La La Land winning pretty much everything.

As for our favorites, if you don’t see a performance or film you loved on our lists, it is entirely possible we didn’t get around to seeing it. (We have day jobs, after all.) We know we have some key blind spots in our viewing log (13th, The Fits, The Birth of a Nation, American Honey, I Am Not Your Negro, and The Salesman come to mind), so to cover our bases, David has put together a full list of all the films we did see here, listed by his personal rankings.

But enough talk, our top tens await below – and per tradition, we kept our personal comments to a curt, Twitter-length 140 characters!


Thanks to all who read our posts – have fun watching the show tonight!
