Top 10 List – 2017

Top of 2017

My love for the movies only became greater in 2017. Here are my Top 10 Films of 2017. The Academy Award ceremony begins in a half hour, and I prepare to celebrate film—all film—but especially Lady Bird, Call Me By Your Name, and Get Out, films that give me hope, something for which I have been grasping. I will celebrate my picks, win or lose:
Timothée Chalamet for Actor in a Leading Role
Laurie Metcalf for Actress in a Supporting Role
Woody Harrelson for Actor in a Supporting Role
Lady Bird for Best Picture of the Year

For Actress in a Leading Role, I have no issue with Frances McDormand (the strong frontrunner) winning, but I would love to see Saoirse Ronan, or even Sally Hawkins, win. In Best Picture, realistically speaking, I am hoping to see Get Out pull an “upset.”

To steal a few of Oliver’s words from Call Me By Your Name: To Greta Gerwig, James Ivory, André Aciman, and Jordan Peele, I love the way you write things. To Greta Gerwig, Luca Guadagnino, and Jordan Peele, I love the way you direct things. And to Saoirse Ronan, Laurie Metcalf, Timothée Chalamet, Armie Hammer, and Daniel Kaluuya, I love the way you say things.
