    Oscar winners 217: this year's full list | Film | The Guardian

    The only nominated movie I've seen so far is "Hidden Figures. I loved it.
    I already plan to enjoy La La Land. Now I plan to see "Moonlight" and watch "Manchester By The Sea" on my computer.

    Have you seen one or more of the Oscar nominated films?
    What do you think of the mistake?

    What a shame they were robbed of that moment, but glad Moonlight won. La La Land was great, but Moonlight was better and deserved to win, although I need to see a couple of the other movies. Hidden Figures, I think was my favorite movie last year, just because of the "feel good" nature, despite the theme of racism.

    Amy is currently watching the Oscars (thanks to the recording capabilities of DirecTV). Just saw the part where they remember those who passed away. I forgot that Mary Tyler Moore passed away recently. It was sad to see her name, and the names of others on that list.

    Regarding the movie that won Best Picture. . . Amy saw "La La Land". She and I are both into musicals (and musical-theater). She said that it was just an OK movie, and not necessarily deserving an Oscar. Actually, her very word in describing "La La Land" was "Ehhh". LOL!

    It was interesting to see the "error" made. It sure made the news, which is where I saw the footage of the wrong movie being mentioned as Best Picture and the drama that followed. LOL!

    Yes. It's a very subtle movie, but powerful. Very good acting all around, especially the woman that played the boy's mother.

    I agree. Often I like a novel over the movie. his was a stage play before.
    But dialog is important to a book.

    The main character was so quiet the acting was needed.

    I know it is fiction, but it left me hopeful about the rest of his life. Chiron and Kevin would be in their late twenties at the end of the film. There is no "Happy ever after", but I imagine a generally good life for them. Whether or not they end up together. I also imagine that after talking with his mother and Kevin Chiron learned to talk with someone.
